Yowza. I woke up at 2:30 this morning and my BS was 50. I think I ate everything but the kitchen sink. I had been having really bad dreams for awhile and finally woke myself up when I realized what it was. It wiped me out for the entire day.
There are a lot of things about diabetes that are tough, but for me, dealing with lows tops the list. I think it just might be the worst feeling in the world. I try not to go crazy and overeat when I have them, but I have what you might call a Dr. Jekyll/Ms. Hyde response…or maybe it’s more like a werewolf! I am definitely not a reasonable person when I am low.
I have tried setting a timer after I treat the low with the idea that I can re-check after 20 minutes. If I make it through those 20 minutes, I am less likely to over-treat. Sometimes this works. Last night though, not so much.
Anyone else have thoughts on how lows make you feel out of control and how you deal with that?
