Tested 42, grabbed a handful of glucose tablets, but with 3+ units still on board I headed to a nearby McDonald’s. I really should have stopped driving, but I didn’t feel that I had enough stuff in the car to pull me through the low with all that insulin still working.
I think I just asked for like 3 of everything on the menu…
Seriously though, I had one cinnamon roll and 4.5 hash browns. Doesn’t really sound all that bad, I guess… at least until you get your senses back and realize that you just consumed over 1000 calories in a single sitting…
Good thing I played basketball last night! Which I’m also sure is why I had experienced this low today.
Does anyone else feel really wiped out and tired for a good spot of time after a low like that?

“Imagine having to pump your own heart because it didn’t do it by itself. And when you want to sleep you have to pump it slower. For exercise you would have to speed it up. You would have to know the rate of pumping for every activity. Do you think you could do it? Do you think it would be easy?”— George Simmons, Facebook
