Have You Ever Been…

Family of huge, fat looking hippos…really full, but HAD to eat/drink something because your blood sugar is low?

What an uncomfortable feeling! Talk about looking for something that has the most “bang for the buck”!

I imagine that this is what it’s like to have gastroparesis, where the insulin is working faster than the food is digesting and affecting the blood sugar.

In my case tonight, I had been fighting some lows late in the afternoon, and must have been crashing during dinner or something like that.
