So I haven't been really sick since I was diagnosed... about 6 years ago. Well, I was sick this weekend and my sugars were *awful*
I went to bed feeling completely exhausted (I had tested an hour before and I was 120). Well, I tried to sleep but I was waking up ever 30 minutes, first I was hot, then I was cold. I only got up to pee once and I wasn't that thirsty so "being high" didn't go through my head. Well, when I finally got up I was 240! I had that "you've been high for way too long" look under my eyes (y'all know what I'm talking about?) and worst I'd felt in ages. I was sick, hadn't slept, and at 240. ugh!
It took me all day to correct down to the 100s. I'm normally never out of the 100s... so this was just crazy for me, to be in the 2s for so long!
Awful, but I'm almost out of the woods (feeling much much better)! Anyone else had similar experiences while sick?
