I have been taking long acting insulin since my diagnosis of Lada Type 1 in Feb this year. I have been able to control my blood sugars with my eating habits..... and then one day like that my numbers we constantly going over 200 after I ate. Today I scared myself and I think I realized I need to start taking my short acting like the Dr. has been recommending for a couple months because I ate two chicken breaded patties with strawberry sauce and my BGL was 345 (19.6), I didn’t feel weird just thirsty by the time I looked at my CGM Dexcom G6 it was at 290 but still the highest it has ever been. I’m scared of short acting because I tried it once and called 911 as I felt like I was gonna hit the ground .... it was in the morning and I had no food on me, I learned I needed food before shots in the morning but since I have been scared. I ate a little Chinese food for dinner and when I saw my meter rising to 164 (9.1) I have myself 1 unit as Dr said to do, I swear my body feels weird inside and it’s hard to breath, panic attack perhaps .... my numbers stayed the same for a bit but then went up to 245 (13) now is slowly coming down ... I’m at 11.6 now and slowly going down. Has anyone else ever felt anxiety or weird feelings of dropping fast taking the fast acting? I have to get over this I will need insulin the rest of my life, before each meal and I’m scared of 1 unit.... Life throws curve balls .... but how do you swing blind?
