My sick plan.
Have lots of fluids in house.
Have soft foods that wont upset stomach.
Have saltine crackers on hand for snackage (peanut butter or sugar free jam).
Test more often.
Dont worry about spikes unless they are over 200-250 for more than 2 days.
You will spike when sick.
If over that BS, then call doctor for advice.
Might mean emergency visit.
Rest. drink fluids.
Make sure you dont have to leave the house.
Catch up on TV, reading and Resting.
This is viewed as a T2.
Again, you will spike, dont forget to take your meds. Dont panic.
When we are sick, we tend to spike.
Good luck.

Thats a good advise to follow, I'm dealing with Breathing problems myself. This weather is giving me problems with my C.O.P.D. Hope you start feeling better soon
