Timing is everything


I checked my BG at 12:50pm (151), then got busy with life – getting babies fed, making lunch for everyone else…

Then by the time I got around to eating my lunch, it was 1:45. But I didn’t realize it had been an HOUR, so I bolused for my leftover thin crust pizza, based on the 151 BG.


About 15 min later, I started seeing spots…

I think, “Oh there’s no way I’m low, I just ate PIZZA for goodness sake” (even though it was thin crust, and that only has 20ish carbs per slice – which turns out to not be a good thing for me in this particular scenario.)

But a few min later.. still seeing spots and having a hard time concentrating. Or putting thoughts/sentences together.

So I check my BG…. 52.


Apparently I was on my way down when I had the 151, and then when I bolused I was much lower than 151 at the time. But again, I had no idea that an hour had gone by … *sigh*

I’m still waiting to come up. That all happened a few minutes ago. And I have 16 units of active insulin on board. Looks like a suspended pump is in my near future. 😉
