I feel like snails

I don't remember Kerri's post but you know what I'm talking about. I feel like absolute garbage. Sure my wisdom teeth are gone, but now I feel like puking my guts up and have an awful headache. I don't want any of this, it freaking sucks. My blood sugar's been in the high 300s since I got up. Rage bolusing is doing nothing and Dex decided it was a good time to conk out completely.

It's the amoxycillin doing this to me, but I can't fix it unless I don't take it. I hate this.

Any suggestions?

Things that used to be

My wisdom teeth are gone. None of them had come out yet and they would have wrecked my nice orthodontia so we finally got them taken out this morning [I wanted to get it done before going to college].  I couldn't eat for nine hours before and didn't really eat until three or four hours after. My mouth kept bleeding until I just decided to stop the gauze at which point I guess it stopped.

Had some regular jello that I couldn't properly appreciate as my tongue was still mostly numb. Pudding for dinner and I'll probably have ice cream later today. Scrambled eggs are on the menu for breakfast.

We lowered the basal for the night and I went into the surgery with 212mg/dl. I was out completely for maybe an hour. After my bg was fine, still in the 200s but that's been fixed obviously. I've got Vicodin which is acetaminophen based, which is unfortunate for my DexCom  because it's giving me weird numbers.

Some Updates

I think I'm going to be gradually updating the look of my blog or maybe not. Something I will do, that I've been meaning to do for some time, is make a video for the walk. I attended a lunch kick off event [first time in nine years I've been able to make it] yesterday and saw the most amazing walk video from @bleedingfinger and @sweet2thesoul - decided it finally needed to be done. I'm not a cute little kid anymore but I think stabbing myself a bazillion times is enough to warrant people giving money to a cause that will help me and the cute little kids. :D

I won't be there [college is ten hours away] but you can still be awesome and donate to my team, read my story, and donate to my team...

And I'm kind of working on a silly t-shirt design that doesn't really have anything to do with the JDRF walk theme this year... except that it involves diabetes heroes...
