Super_sally888 is correct in her advice.
Depending on your doctor they may or may not go along with allowing you to adjust insulin on your own, especially if you live alone, and don't quite understand how insulin works. It also depends on the insulin. Some doctors use a protocol with fast acting Novalog and Lantus. There are lots of missing pieces in your story. The best thing to do is to get involved with a R.N. or nurse practicioner specializing in diabetes. They will spend more time with you that an M.D. They will set up a program that is perfect for you. You need to know the glucose levels when you go to bed to determine what adjustment is due in the morning, if any. Glucose levels before breakfast, under some protocols, adjustments are determine by the dose of Lantus before bedtime, for example.
If your blood sugar is so high, it means your insulin dose is too low. YOu need to increase your insulin dose. The standard way is to increase it by 2 units every 2 - 3 days until your target levels are reached. Of course better if you have medical / dr. supervision.
Low carb diet, weight normalization, and daily exercise will also help reduce how much insulin you need and help in getting your blood sugars lower.
