Over the past weekend, I went on vacation and made several bad decisions back to back which in return, spiked my glucose to 215. Keep in mind that the first and last time I saw that number was when I was diagnosed a couple of years ago. On Monday, I woke up with a splitting headache, my heart was racing, I was weak, light headed and dizzy. My energy level was at an all time low but I had to get dressed, get my niece and nephew ready, check out of the resort and load the bus for the voyage back home. (Family gathering).
I did gather enough energy to get dressed and take my glucose. That is when the big 215 appeared. I knew that I was in trouble, but I had no idea on how to get out of this situation. So for the voyage home, I slept on a bus from South Carolina to Georgia and only woke up when I needed water/food. Even when I ate, it was berries from a salad. Once I got home, I tried eating soup, but I mainly wanted to sleep. I know this is not good. Lesson learned, but what can I do in case it spikes like this again? What can I do to bring it down to a level where at least I am not dizzy, sleepy and weak???
