I am so totally bummed out about this. As if it is not hard enough trying to get my sugar under control. I had my three grandkids that live close by, over yesterday. We played outside, well they did, as I sat in the shade most of the time.
We did a very little work so I could set my sprinkler up for them with a little pool I bought for them. Should have been great fun for all of us. The problem was I have the allergies to Heat, Sun, and cold. I got so sick from it. I drank lots of unsweetened Iced tea. My sugar kept getting higher and higher, dispite giving my self my sliding shots. At one point it reached 410. I finished cooking on the grill and had the kids come in with me. I took another shot and ate a little dinner. It finally started coming down as my body started cooling down some. I made the kids and Don snowcones and I had one with no syrup (I Love just Ice) lol. I called my son-in-law and told him I was taking the kids home (I was Babysitting so I had a little birthday Party for my granddaughter. No parents invited.)lol. He asked me if I had a house key. DUH! They never lock the house so they never gave me a key. They were an hour away. I let him know I was not really feeling to well. He said we will leave now Ma. My Daughter called a little while away and could I take the kids home and they would be there in 1/2 hour. I told her ok.
Now I had to set back and use a nitro. It helped, but when I got the kids there (The big ones pulled in just befor we did), I had to set back and use another nitro.
That one did the trick. I sat there and talked (listened) to my daughter. I did let them know how very close I came to having to go to the hospital.
Man I hate this. It is worse than just trying to deal with the diabeties.
By the way I have tried everything from a long sleeved shirt (makes it worse because of the heat thing) to SPF 70 sunscreen. I still get the gosh awful red blotches and sick feeling. It even gets me in the car. I have to have AC and make sure it doesn't get to cool or blowing directly on me.
