I woke up at 8 and my blood glucose (BG) was around 200. I took my shot and went back to sleep! I didn’t mean to go to sleep. In fact, I dozed and heard the dryer go off (I made sure to set the dryer so I’d know to get back up) and I didn’t want to get up. Last night I did a lot more work than I normally do and my wonky leg was heavy and weak. So, I didn’t want to get up.
Suddenly, it was 11am and I noticed I was covered in sweat. I had been having strange dreams and knew something was off. I am on a new drug that makes me less aware than I used to be of lows. I will drop to 57 and think I am totally fine. Am pretty sure this one was a LOT lower, I didn’t check. I am only allotted 4 tests a day per insurance and I wasn’t sure if I had over drawn my test strip allowance already. At any rate, it was low.
I knew I needed to get dressed. I had a dickens of a time putting on my panties, cuz my wonky leg didn’t want to work properly. I pulled out a pair of jeans and thought they looked like way too much work. So, I got some capris out of my summer clothes tote. But, I wasn’t sure if they were mine. I didn’t recognize them (I am the only female in the house, so they were mine and I’d worn them a million times), but decided they were and managed to pull them on while ingesting 3 glucose tabs. I stumbled to the kitchen and after a lot more sugar carbs (I needed to be careful since I’m having a colonoscopy and upper GI on Thursday and need to not eat certain things….), I started to feel better.
Cold, but better. After a real low low, I get cold. Very cold. I knew I couldn’t huddle in my blankets like I usually do (I have chores to do around 1130 every day involving feeding people), but I wanted to. I managed to get everything done, but it is now after 1pm and I’m still out of sorts. I have many things I need to do, but I am having trouble concentrating. I did have lunch and should be good. Yet, Diabetes is trying to be in charge today.
I know there are many other horrid diseases to have and I whine and complain all the time. But, today, I really do detest, despise, and abominate this disease.
