I just had to share this because it was so stupid it was funny. Yesterday I went very long between breakfast and lunch. Usually I do about 5 hours, but it was over 8 yesterday. Well, I always test before lunch and boy did I freak out. I read a 26! OMG…I went to show my husband and then he freaked out and gave me a slug of sweet tea. But the weird things was that I didn't feel low at all. A 26 should have put me on the floor. I felt perfectly fine except that my tummy was growling. I retested and it was 88.
I got to thinking that there was no way I had a 26 and I started to experiment with the numbers and reading them upside down. (the meter I use is oblong and it can be easily read either way) Sure enough I am sure I had a 92. Whew! I just laughed. I have a habit of placing my meter in front of me a certain way to wait for my reading and for some reason, I placed it the wrong way…what a crazy moment.
Have you ever had a palm to the forehead moment with your diabetes? Or something that you can laugh at now, even though it freaked you out at first? Love to know I am not alone. LOL
