Blood Sugar Issues....what in the world!!!

The last week I have been having higher than normal BG readings. Several mornings it was in the 140's and went to 160 after a cup of coffee with no carbs in it. I load my coffee up but it is all with sugar free stuff. Since I have been very aware of this issue lately, I have tried to be very careful. Today I went to lunch with the ladies and ALL I had to eat was some guacomole and chips and when I got home my BG was 221. There are zero carbs in guac, so that came strictly from the chips....and not that many of them!!That is just highly unusual. I have been on the same dosage of the same med since diagnosis 4 years ago and I do know this is a progressive disease, so I'm thinking it must be time to up the dosage, but I don't see my doc until after Christmas. I used to be able to eat anything at night and not have a BG reaction, but tonight I put it to the test. I ate 2 1/2 pieces of pizza and after one hour, it was 196. Right now, 2 1/2 hours later, it is still at 185. Something is just not right here. I even tried a new canister of test strips. I have been stuck way too much with that lancet!!!

My sunset a few nights ago!

I saw a red light shining on my bedroom windows and when I went outside to see what it was, this is what I saw!
