Tired much?

Posted on

Yesterday after a full day in the office, one of my coworkers asked me to go out to dinner with her for her birthday. Her husband was out of town and why would I say no to a birthday dinner. We headed off to Cheesecake Factory. I had the chicken madeira minus the madeira. Also split a Adam’s Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple slice of cheesecake. I actually looked the carb value for the cheesecake up in Calorie King, but I still figured something would go wrong later.

I got home around 9:30 pm, and a few minutes later one of my other coworkers called and her car had broken down and her and her husband were stranded about 20 minutes away. They asked if I would come get them. A quick check of the blood sugar (57) resulted in a ‘not yet’. I pounded a juice box and had some peanut butter crackers (needed a ‘negative correction of about a unit and still had a little over a unit active).

Went and got the stranded couple and returned home about 11:15 pm. When the wife got out of the car she said, “Go home and change – you look uncomfortable”. I was still in my professional clothes from work. Gee thanks!

Finally making it home, I had to deal with several of my students who needed my help. My ‘favorite’ part was when one told me that I was making her sad (for telling her no about something), and out of sheer exhaustion and frustration I told her that she had been making me sad all year. Yikes!

I had a few things to do around the house to get ready for today, and apparently at some point fell asleep sitting on the couch. I woke up around 2:30 am and tested my blood sugar. I was 266 – combo of overtreating low and delayed cheesecake effect (which I had kinda been expecting).

I walked to my bedroom and laid on my bed to perform a little bolus wizard magic. However, when I woke up this morning (7:30 am) at 342, I realized that something had gone wrong. I am pretty sure that the moment my head hit the pillow I was asleep again.

Too tired to bolus – that’s a new one!! 😀

  1. Great pictures. It sounds like one of those exhausting but fun evenings that just goes on for ever.

    That’s one of those nights where you’d like a setting for “Don’t wake me, but just keep correcting the highs” on your pump!

  2. Ugh, what a crappy way to spend the evening. I’m so sorry 😦

  3. Oy! What an evening.

  4. What a bummer.

    Now you are making me sad 😦

    j/k 😉

  5. Nom nom nom … cheesecake factory.

    But sucky numbers to have to rein in. I hope you’re feeling steadier now. 😀

    (My brain just went back to cheesecake – I can’t lie.)

  6. Even though the evening was hectic & the BG didn’t cooperate, I’ll bet that cheescake was totally worth it, right?
