Its 1:14 AM, my blood sugar is in the upper stratisphere(200-400) and it WON'T COME DOWN. I can't sleep (as the ketones bounce along with the bg, turning my stomach to mush + my throat into a second Sahara). I want to puke(but can't, it takes more then DKA to make me puke).
This has been going on approximently 13.5 hours. I've taken 4 extra shots of Novolog, to get the blood sugar +ketones down + I am now 205, small ketones.
The reason for this "bad D trip"? Extreme stupidity (on my part), I should have never gotten
a naval piercing. (May my mother NEVER read this blog) Funny how many sets I've gone through and never had one, now this. Suffice to say, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to connect the dots(infection=high blood sugars)
It might be true, D's are more prone to infections of this sort, but I didn't exactly take stellar care of the piercing. Regardless, I've changed my mind about having one- I want it out and healed up, navals can take up to a year to completely heal. The next time I decide to get a piercing, I'll just get a second set in the ears...(safer territory)
Next step=doubl(ing) of basal. I should probably call the intern on call, as thrilled as that will make him/her. I need an antibiotic + to clear up this situation but I'd rather wait till Monday to see the doc, if at all possible. Not possible, if the ketone situation doesn't get any better.
Stupid diabetes. (highs make me cranky as heck, in case its not immeadiently obvious)
