    Ugghh what a day already.

    Woke up feeling ropy. I had a moderate hypo last night (3.3 no symptoms until I stood up) and woke to 16.1. corrected (stupidly) and came to work where I realised I had double down arrows with 5.something and over 2U of insulin on board. PANIC STATIONS!!! didnt eat too much (mini coke and normal breakfast biscs) but now have a headache and feel like ****.

    Just wanted to share really!

    When I read things like this I'm so grateful to be T2 (as opposed to T1, obviously!).

    I hope you feel better soon.

    Poor you, I do hope you feel better for the weekend. I always think it worse when you feel ill over the weekend.

    We all get caught out every now and again. Ive been there myself through correcting for a high only to discover that the correction starts to make me drop too low and then you wonder if its the teststrip or settings on pump not correct any longer.

    Glad that you are ok and not run over by a bus lol

    Ooooh, so sorry to hear that! Those hypo hangovers are horrible, especially if you end up high afterwards!
    Hopefully you'll be able to get home soon and maybe sleep in tomorrow? :)

    Hi, Engineer, hope you're ok. Like others I stopped dead when I saw the thread title. Hope it is a hypo hangover and not the start of a bad cold or something. Did you get the flu jab? Take care and best wishes!

    It must be the (ironic) day for it. I woke to 3.3, struggled to recover from it. Then had a weird allergic reaction to goodness knows what and have felt rubbish all day. Hope you feel better soon x
