Sick of Sick

So I have spent the whole holiday weekend sick. Coughing, Sneezing, Runny Nose, Chills, Aches, and Pains are enough to make me want to stay in bed. But how do I do that on a 4 day holiday weekend? All weekend long I pushed myself through being sick and ignored my body. I visited friends and family and did not let the cold get me down.

And here I am at work feeling like total crap. I have no one to blame but myself but it was just too great of a weekend not to have some fun even if I was under the weather. Not to mention it was about 80 degrees outside on New Years Eve with perfectly blue skies. And I mean real blue not the brown/blue us Los Angelinos are used to. I had to play some disc golf and hang out with friends.

My BG has been high too which I am sure you all guessed. I just keep checking and bolusing to bring it back down. Well, anyhow it was a great weekend despite the coughing and such. I can sleep this weekend I hope.

Unless of course the weather good!

Run a temp basal rate I did 115% until i got on my antibiotic and it helped. Otherwise, I was just correcting, and correcting, and then eating would send it through the roof again.

Hope you feel better soon.

Did our friends get us both sick? :(

I've had a weird cold on and off for about 2 weeks. I agree with Sara temp basals are the only way to go, but don't set them for too long or you can end up bottoming out. Get Well Soon!!!

Hang in there and feel better!!
A Temp basal rate will help,and not to sound corny, but try Airbourne - it makes me feel better as does Throat Coat tea.

Take Care!

I hope you feel better George. Thanks for the encouragement!

Yep, I've got one too. Haven't had a cold in a couple of years. Gotta say I agree w/ K2 about the Airborne. I've been drinking one twice a day, and my cold has been VERY mild. Hope everyone feels better soon.

I don't know what the deal is with the Diabetes OC. It seems like everyone is sick. Well, I hope you kick this thing quick.

This cruddy thing is all over the country. We all spent Christmas and New Year's here with it, too.

It will get better, I promise! Take it easy, get some rest. :)
