When Diabetes Sucks

Today has been one of those days when I just shake my head because there's really nothing else I can do.

Yes, I know that Nutella toast isn't Bean's BFF, however, we can usually deal with it with a nicely timed pre-bolus and a cranked temp basal.

But not today.

Yes, I know that Subway isn't Bean's BFF, however, we can usually deal with it with a super-duper bolus.

But not today.

Here it is, dinner time, and Bean is at 323.  Not a number you want to add to with any kind of food.  Especially not the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal she asked to get today so she could try cereal because she really doesn't like cereal and maybe she'd like that kind (conversation in the cereal aisle today...and yes, I caved with her choice because at that point I just didn't care what she chose....mom of the year is in the bag!).  So, cheese and water is what she is 'enjoying' for dinner so she can at least have something.

It frustrates me; days like this; because yesterday she had OJ and a cinnamon roll for breakfast, sandwich and applesauce for lunch, and a cupcake for snack and never went over 225 all day (according to the G4, which has been pretty dang spot on for several days).

And, now, the pod is alarming....seriously....as I sit here typing, the pod beeeeeeeeeeeeped.

Well, maybe it's a good thing...we'll just wait and see what tomorrow brings.


  1. Maybe the beeping is good! You can just blame all today's troubles on the pod and have a fresh start tomorrow! :D

  2. I think I like Sara's approach! Hang in there, and I'm sorry it's been such a rough day. That's never any fun.

  3. Bleh. Chicken & green beans...AGAIN! All will be better tomorrow! I love starting fresh with blood sugars...it's like waking up every morning with a "0" calorie count!! And we're off!!

  4. Hang in there Mom of Bean! I agree with Sara - Blame the pod & tomorrow is a new day and a fresh start!

  5. Ugh, days like that are the worst!! Especially when you know diabetes liked the orange juice and the cinnamon roll the day! Hope things settle down soon.
