Last night surprisingly my sugar was 20. I had taken the proper amounts of insulin during the day and even went for a run yet my sugar was still high. I didn't really know what the source of this high b/g was so I took corrective insulin to at least bring me down to 10.
At about 1:30 a.m I was having these wacky dreams. I often have these wacky dreams when my b/g levels are low. The dreams are very 'annoying' and keep me up and constantly tossing and turning. I decided to check my sugar and I was at a 6. This should have been fine but from my last experiencing of fainting at a 6 during the night, I decided to have a little chocolate and then go back to bed.
About an hour later these wacky dreams were still happening. It was as if my brain didn't want to rest. When I woke up fully, all I could think about was how hungry I was. I was wishing the cafe was open because I wanted to buy a great amount of food. I was starving! I checked my sugar and I was 3.8.
I acted on this but being very sleepy it was a little difficult to just sit there and eat. I had a few chocolates then some Mini Wheats. After about 15 min. I checked again and was at 5.9. I fell back asleep and before I knew it my alarm was going off and I was getting up to go to school.
Today has been a very sluggish and tiring day. I really just want to go to sleep and not worry about diabetes right now. Thankfully I only have revision left to do to an essay and then I just have to attend classes and prepare for exams.
At this point in time diabetes is really throwing me through some loops that is making my days a little bit more of a challenge. But I've done it before, what's going to stop me? Nothing.
