    Think the hypo was due to diy all day yesterday and not finishing till late last night!

    Stayed up till 4 trying to stabilise my BG (too high early in the night, dropping too fast later on)
    Fell asleep just after 4 AM at 6.9 and woke up at 9.4 ^_^ So feeling pretty okay about how today is going.

    @slip That sucks ^^; I'm sure you'll get it back down soon enough~

    @Natalie1974 Awesome! That sounds like a great night~

    5.7 going to bed, 3.1 waking. I woke up with really dry mouth & desperate for a wee so was convinced it was going to be high on testing. Obviously not. Fine, I will put the CGM back on this morning then - was enjoying a couple of days with nothing bleeping at me, but clearly I do need it bleeping at me.

    was irritatingly high all evening yesterday ( 8's and 9's ) but finally hit 7.6 at 11:30pm and bed time
    got up for basal at 1am ( 7.7) and 3am ( 9.8 ggrrrr!! ) so a 3.3u correction and a waking BG of 6.5 at 7am

    this is much more like my normal pattern so who knows where the 2.2's from the last 2 mornings came from :eek:

    Fell asleep at 8.3 woke up at 9.6

    I've been super worried about going low whilst I'm asleep so I guess I'm running a little hot. Going to not correct my waking BG and see what it does through the rest of the morning. (Learning! *Thumbs up*)

    Thanks ^=^ Uhm. 9.6 seems to be about average for me these past couple of weeks and I'm trying to figure out why. I also seem to be super sensitive to insulin still too. So a correcting dose of one unit might push me a tiny bit too low and then I won't be able to drive in to an appointment I have at uni. I also seem to scrub about 1-2mmol over the hour after I wake up so I might be 7 by the time I hit uni! Thanks for your concern though ^=^

    4.8 this morning, higher last night so a correction of 1/2 unit has helped bring it down. Something is going on with my eye, woke up to a painful left eye yesterday and it's getting worse, a little swollen, very watery, hurts in sunlight ( no I'm not a vampire lol) so painful, water is running down my cheek now. Will make an appointment with a GP, as this is the good eye !! Take care

    I agree with the1 unit, correction, I am sensitive too, I have a 1/2 unit echo pen now, as my other 1/2 unit pen is no longer in use. My DSN gave me two pens, good luck :)

    funnily enough RRB -- my very next words were going to be to @chloegeek -- have you looked into possibly asking your DSN about a 1/2 unit pen !!:)

    oww !! your eye sounds painful -- do get seen for it ASAP - i always do when mine give me any trouble --.
