Alright, well this is my first blog and I feel a little weird about it because I never would have considered myself much of a blogger… maybe it’s because I am bored, procrastinating, or because something semi-interesting just happened (and I cant tell my family because they will just freak out)… i dont know but I just feel like it so here it goes…
Last night I went to sleep at around 11 pm and woke up around midnight in a pool of my sweat. I did not feel too shaky while lying in bed so I tried to go back to sleep. After a few minutes, I figured maybe I should check my blood sugar just to be on the safe side. Once I stood up I felt like I had seriously been drugged, I could not see, I could barely stand up, and I finally made my way to my tester. I tested my sugar and it was at 49… I have had worse lows before but not many and they were all while I was awake. So I ran to the fridge and scavenged for some milk and just kept chugging glasses and then found a bag of candy and just started shoving them in my mouth. I knew doing ALL of this would probably make me high but I just was soo freaked out and wanted to feel better ASAP! I eventually went back to sleep and felt better and was only a little high when I woke up.
I just think it is so interesting/funny. Only a person with diabetes will wake up in the middle of the night feeling that crummy and will cure it by downing an intense amount of sugar as quickly as possible. I don’t know why I got so low at night, I could attribute it to quite a few possible factors, but I am just so thankful I woke up and was able to fix it so quickly.
– On an unrelated note: I just watched the movie Tangled and it was AWESOME!!
