Well what started out as a very promising test has gone wrong. I can not multi task.
Did not pinch finger in Miss Kitty Microwave. No boil overs, no Brick of Wheat from over cooking. Remembered to add the whey powder. Tested BG before eating and every 15 minutes for an hour.Forgot to test BG for over one hour. Missed learning when BG spike and fall occured.
Incomplete results are:
12:50 PM - 96 before preparing Cream of Wheat
1:25 ate Cream of Wheat with Almond Milk and Splenda ( same amount as first test)
Added whey powder and ate 15 Almonds - Do not know carb amounts because whey powder was from bulk food aisle and I forgot how many carbs/protein where on the bin label at the store 6 months ago. Failed to look up carb/protein of almonds because by the time I am entering this I realize how botched up the test has become.)
1:40 PM - 176 ( Screamed and took an immediate second reading while husband kept asking "What is going on?)
1:41 PM - 145
1:55 PM - 140
2:10 until 3:10 PM reading DC discussions and oblivious to passing of time
3:10 PM 104

Hope I can manage better with Take 3.

Oh, your vision of perfection has faded from my mind! You, make a mistake....never? LOL =0)

It all takes practice and the thing is that there is never the exact same circumstances in play at each event. In the long run, it has to be something that you are comfortable with and a range you can deal with.

yes reading these posts does that to me too. Sometimes I don't get up and walk around for HOURS when I login to DC. (I know, that's not good for me but my ADHD kicks in and I hyper focus *that's my story and I'm stickin to it*)

If I had only stuck to reading discussions I might have been okay. It was the replying that was my downfall. Simple math should have made me realize time was ticking away. I type very few letters per minute.

Wow! Thanks for taking one for the team there Graylin! That spike is two slices of pizza for me. Seems like a good recovery though.

Your welcome, anything to help fellow PWDs… well almost anything.
Oddly enough a few weeks ago I safely ate some pizza (thin crust and left most of the crust) at The Cake Lady's Tuesday Night Carb Fest. To celebrate I had a very small piece of the ever present cake. The cake didn't even spike me. It was a strange carb reaction evening. Maybe the black hole were all carbs come from reserved some of those carbs for the cream of wheat event.

Interesting theory - I've never thought of the spooky space aliens conspiracy myself. Perhaps Hello Kitty is posessed too!

Considering I deal at work with Alien Bladders that can never be trusted, spooky space aliens are almost always what I suspect first.

:) I'm not sure I want to ask - or even have the government clearance to know what an alien bladder is.

It has been a closely guarded secret, that I discovered. Bladders are Alien creatures implanted within all of us. They can never be trusted. I think the government is in control of the incontinence product industry. Government is not about Big Oil but Big Diapers.
Big Bladder is watching you.

Oh she can tell you but then she'd have to kill you! (My son and my brother work at the Nevada {nuclear} Test site, next door to the infamous "area 51" ——-where it is reported they have real alien bladders —- and I get that guff from them all the time) LoL! Cue the X files music!
