Stupid Diabetes

I woke up at quarter to 7 this morning with the pump going HIGH- over 400.
So I tested on my meter - 281. Stupid pump, I say, and put in the number plus carbs for breakfast. One minute later: beep beep beep NO DELIVERY. Stupid pump, I say, and take it off, and the sensor too for good measure. Then I take a shot of about four times the pump's recommendation, set my alarm clock for 8 am, and go back to sleep.
8 AM, I wake up and test. Meter says 282. Stupid diabetes, I say, and test my urine ketones. Moderate.
Just tea for breakfast.

P.S. As a side note, my basal rate from 6 am to early afternoon is 0.15 u/hr, and I took a shot of 12 units, so the lack of basal delivery in that hour is kinda unlikely to have mattered.

P.P.S. I've been feeling pretty tired lately and kind of burned out and nobody seemed to be reading this anyways is why I haven't been posting.
