My first, first was exciting. I finally broke through the 100 barrier and had an 89 today before lunch. In all my years of diabetes, this was the lowest number I had ever had…ever! That number is something my body is not used to and I started to feel those dreaded shakes, but was elated to see the 89 on the screen. I even ran into the dining room to share it with my husband and mom. I wanted it on the record. LOL
Well right now, my second first is a more true low. I was laying in bed watching TV relaxing and started to feel those shakes again. But this was worse…so my husband was asking if I needed some sugar. (He's so sweet, and at least I know he is listening when I tell him things…sometimes) Anyway, I told him I had to test first and sure enough I was already at 72. That number was not so exciting.
I know it is not a low like so many of you experience, but it was enough to get me up to test and see where I was at. I ate a few cookies and tested again and got up to 98.
If it were not for all the things all of you have shared in past discussions on lows, I would have been lost as to what to do. (my doctor never told me anything to expect) So thanks guys!!
