O's blood sugars have been thru the fucking ROOF these last few days. It's driving both of us absolutely nuts.

3:30 p.m. - 231
5:45 p.m. - 241
7 p.m. - 224
10:30 p.m. - 321
1 a.m. - 418 (WHAT the FUUUUUUCK?)
2:30 a.m. - 356
6:30 a.m. - 218
8:30 a.m. - 176
9 a.m. - 115 - first in range number in days
This is pretty typical of the last week or so. I'd chalked it up to her getting her period but that's done with and the highs are still hanging around. I upped her 8 - midnight and midnight - 6 a.m. basal rates but I haven't touched her daytime rates yet. Last time I changed basal rates, I was pissed off about highs and did a Rage Basal Change across the board, which sent her blood sugars down the tubes. I swear, she drank about 2 cases of Juicey Juice in four days.
I've injected, changed her site, opened new insulin, done all the things you're supposed to do and none of it is helping. She feels like dried out ass from the highs and I feel like dried out ass from the all night checking.
Last summer, her insulin needs dropped a bit because of all the outdoor playing. This year, it hasn't stopped raining in weeks, so maybe that has something to do with it, but still. She wasn't like this when school was in and she's doing things around the house (she cleaned up the kitchen. Without being asked. I almost fell over.), so it's not like she's sitting on her butt watching tv all day long. I just don't get it. Maybe it's a growth spurt? Maybe the moon is in the wrong phase or the wind isn't blowing just so or I've held my mouth the wrong fucking way. Something's pissing off the diabetes gods. Which, in turn, is pissing me off.
I fucking HATE this disease.
Also, did anyone else in the OC get this? It came yesterday.
