ive done this on a number of occasiions but yesterdaywas an all time moment of stupididy made me post this discussion. I hope other type ones can relate.
But id like to ask the question have you ever been in a suittuation where you know you are low because you have either tested or can feel the symptoms but fail to respond due to the envoirnent or suituation OR your simply too low to respond and act accordingly??
I can give an example.
A few months ago i was attending a class provided by the college on self defense and it was quite late in the evening. It was a physical class so we were all up on our feet "defending ourselves" and next of all i feel a low comin on. I have the heavy tired and weak feeling and im pale as a sheet. I also get very giddy and easily amused as if im drunk, almost like everyythings funny sort of thing!! well i knew i had no tablets on me or any kind of sugar so i would have to leave the room and head over to the shop to get something and it was just too much of a hassle so ii hoped i would last the end of the class so i could sort myself out afterwards. and luckily i did. but imaagine the pickle i would have been in if i didnt make it to the end of the class. I guess reflecting over the whole thing, i should of left and returned with a bottle of coke but then i would of had to deal with explaining myself to the lecturerer why i left and why it was important which can get on my tits at the best of times, i guess having the suagr in the first place saves a lot of hassle!! but these things happen and you cant always be prepared for these things!!! shit happens!!!
but last night i had another low and i was simply too tired to deal with it so i left it!! i this happened a few times and for some reason i dont go into a coma my sugars rebound and go sky high in the morning !! it might be my" drunkin proccess" of thinking or lack of thinking during my low but i really should of gotten out of bed and sorted it out.
I have spoken to other diabetics and they have done the same. The have had the experience of being low and been told by others that they are low and they refuse to test just to be stubborn or they reply "ill eat something in a minute" and get kind of touchy about it!! ( which i find kind of amusing) my dad will walk around in the kitchen for ages like an eejit when hes low until you sit him down and shout at him or threathen to ring an ambulance until he eats something!! but he cant recognise his lows so you have to treat him differently!!! he will also become reaaly confused and start a conversation which he himself cant follow!!! ( i shouldnt find it funny but i do!!!)
so can anyone else relate>> any tips, i suppose dont be such a lazy arse and get something to eat intead of rolling over anf falling back asleep is good advice!! but i hope im not the only one who has experienced this!!! i guess i better sort my =self out if i am!!!
Do you yourself turn into a diabetic dxckhead and refuse to test when your told your low??
Has ignoring the signs of a low gotten you into a sticky suituation which might make other diabetic deliquents (LIKE ME) wake up and fetch the sugar ???
