I had my highest high sincediagnosis yesterday afternoon, in school. My one meter read HI, which means over 500, so I checked with one that reads up to 600, and I was 529. I was so scared. I didnt have ketones at first, but eventually I ended up with moderate ketones...they went away completely within about 4 hours. I was running high all morning in school though, but I didnt want to miss class, so I waited until my lunch to go to the nurse. Thats when I got the HI reading. She thought it only meant I was over 400, but when I told her it meant over 500, I thought she was going to have a heart attack. She kept asking me if I was ok, and she said that I wasn't acting myself. I couldn't concentrate for anything...you guys should have seeen me changing my pump site. I was forgetting things because I kept getting distracted, and it took me what felt like forever to complete. And talk about thirsty...I havent been that thirsty in a VERY long time. I drank more water than I can even tell you, mostly because I forget, but it was a lot! There was no good reason for being that high, until I went to the pediatrician. I have bronchitis, and she said I sounded horrible. My throat is killing me today, and it hurts to breathe. She put me on an inhaler, and some kind of antibiotic. I have to go back there today so she can listen to me. Hopefully I won't have to go get x-rays, and I hope even MORE that it doesnt turn into pnemonia. Sorry, but I needed to vent..I'm just not having a good day, yesterday or today.
