Early this morning at 8:30 while I was on the train, I began to feel dizzy and sick to my stomach. Soon I felt myself fading away, and someone asked if I was alright. I was too disoriented to respond to him. Suddenly everything faded to black, and I think I passed out at that point. I don't know how long I was out, but I think at one point my blood sugar rose up and I was awake. I had dropped to my knees, and a man next to me was holding me by my shoulder. Someone was also nice enough to give up their seat for me. An MTA employee approached me and asked if I needed any further medical attention. The bystander who helped me mentioned I have an insulin pump, and said that I should test my blood sugar. I did, and it turned out to be 90, which baffles me because that is usually a positive reading. During the train ride I noticed I had been sweating heavily, a common sign of low BG. Luckily, I was able to get to class on time. This was a serious issue for me. I ask that those of you who are religious to please keep me in your prayers, and please pray for other diabetics around the world. Those of you who are not religious, please give this a like or leave a comment to show you care.
