I have a horrible cold and I'm under the influence of Tylenol Cold and Flu, lol. I checked for ketones and they were negative. My blood sugars have been high all day today yesterday= I've only had 1 # under 200 and it was 193. Currently I'm sitting at 273. I'm correcting but not budging. I know all the sick day guidelines, and I'm following them, but I feel awful. I have my alarm set to wake me up so I can check my BG at 3am (which I only do when I'm sick or having unexplained lows). Okay, I'm done now. I really just wanted to vent to a group of people who understand D. Even though I know how to take care of myself, I always call my mom when I'm sick. She's called like a million times to see how I was feeling and what my BG was. Even though I'm away at college I like to have my mom reasure me that I'm doing everything corrctly, she's the greatest .
