    Well first of all it stated out really badly. We were planning to leave at 3AM so my friend and I decided to wait up. Well we made it to 11:00 and went to bed! We were so tired. We set our alarm for 2am. So we got 3 hours of sleep. Well at 11:00 I was 300 and I kept havong to go to the bathroom. At 3:00 when we were leaving I was only 253 and I knew that if I didn't give myself insulin I would keep going to the bathroom and her mom didn't want to stop. SO I gave myself 2 units figuring it should bring me down to 150. Well I was 172 at 6:45 and jave been ober 200 ALL DAY. I just won't come down. Grrr. we had fun otherwise, but the ride was LONG. 6 hours each way. Boy, I don't want to drive to Boston ever again. Ohh we just visited Boston and left, no shopping. ANd currently I am going on on;y 3 hours of sleep and I am so stinking tired. But again, we still had fun:)

    3 hours...you must be really tired.

    Did your insulin expire or lose its potency? I'd switch out the bottle just to make sure.

    I use a pen, and just opened it, but because of my sleeping times being WAY off I totally forgot Lantus:eek: That's probably why, huh?
    I'm SO exhausted, and I just wanna go sleep for like 12 hours straight. I have NOT eaten since about 1:00 or so and I am STILL high, around 215.

    oh and i have noticed that when I'm tired I tend to run REALLY high. ANybody have a clue as to why that is????

    Oh..I was going to ask that but I thought maybe she had taken it. Have no idea why that when your tired your high.

    By the way since your going to the bathroom a lot I'd check for ketones, just to make sure the lantus miss didn't effect that.

    Hmm I've never thought to check ketones tonight, last night and today I didn;t have the strips on me, I only take them if I'm going on a trip that I know will last a few days.
    Good idea, thanks:)

    What time do you usually give yourself lantus?

    Lantus is 8am on weekends and around 6am on school days.
    ANd thanks, I think I don't feel well from lack of sleep. I can't keep my eyes open so I'm going to bed. Good Night!
