I’m on auto pilot….get blood sugar kit, test = BG is 3.2, I’m hypo, take a photo!
Realisation kicks in, never mind photos I must treat, get jelly babies, consume 3, check pump for IOB (insulin on board, still active in the body).
I sit and wait….Sounds sound weird, sensations feel strange, I feel pretty hypo drunk….kind of like after a few glasses of wine, but it’s not drunk or tipsy in a nice way, far from it….it’s a horrible, queasy out of control kind of way.
15mins later my BG’s are 3.7 although still very shaky I resist the urge to re-treat, instead I wait another 15mins, by which time my BG’s have risen to 7.6 hooray!
I’m usually more with-it after 20-30mins, but this time I don’t feel right, and end up sitting for another hour! Mentally, I feel so slow and foggy/fluffy headed! Moving feels like such an effort, I feel floored by it, like I’ve been hit by bus! I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. 5hrs later I’ve a banging headache, but just think tomorrow is another day.
Sometimes a hypo just bites you on the arse and knocks you for six!
