Last night sucked and today isn't doing much to make up for it.

I was trying to fall asleep but I couldn't get comfortable. All of a sudden I started getting the sweats and and major cramps everywhere. I hurt so bad that I couldn't get off the couch. Then I started shaking and my heart started pounding, I knew I was going low but my kit was all the way in the kitchen. I hurt too much to get up and get the meter so I just grabbed my coat off the floor and pulled out some glucose tabs. I chewed four of them up and then just kinda fell asleep. I woke up this morning with a nice 350. I think I kept dropping after I fell asleep and therefore I believe my liver kicked in some glucagon. Grr.

Today I was eagerly awaiting my pump but UPS never came. I'm very disappointed. It better be here tomorrow.

Thanks for commenting on my journal. I don't have diabetes, but whenever I'm forced to be on a high dose of prednisone due to a Lupus flare, I develop diabetes. It goes away when the dose of prednisone goes down.

Cheers to you for coping/dealing with your diabetes. If I have to go on a high does of prednisone again and I develop drug-induced diabetes, I'll be contacting you for some help and advice! :)

That is very interesting.

Wait, back to the comment. I'm flattered Flow, I'll probably be asking you about Lupus too. IMHO, there's nobody better to learn from than a person that has the disease. Textbooks are boring anyway.
