252 At 2:52

It's 2:52 in the morning. My blood sugar is also 252. Nice of them to synchronize like that. I've given myself a rage bolus and now I'm up waiting to see if it will work. I'll be really upset in an hour if my blood sugar is 352 at 3:52. I already spent the past few hours close to 400 and it wasn't a lot of fun. Sucks when 252 is an improvement. Sucks even more lying awake in the middle of the night wondering...

Did I give myself enough insulin? Too much? The perfect amount? If I have a blood sugar of 252 at 2:52 in the morning, with a correction factor of x how many units of insulin does it take to bring my blood sugar down? That is not a math problem I can handle right now. At 3 in the morning my math skills look like this: - How I see math word problems: If you have 4 pencils and I have 7 apples, how many pancakes will fit on the roof? Purple, because aliens don't wear hats.

Sleep noun \slēp\

1. Something people without diabetes enjoy at 2:52 am.


  1. Sometimes the diabetes math looks like that no matter what time it is.

    Hope the rest of your evening was better.

    1. I went to bed. Woke up with a BG of 134. After breakfast it went down to 98 and stayed there. Good BG. Now, if I can get some sleep, all will be well.
