Lucky supermarket almost had a fat old lady down in the dairy department today.
For the first time, I had an attack with low blood sugar.
I absolutely thought I was going to black out. My hands were red and shaking – a lot. I was in a cold sweat.
And I was soooooo scared.
I tried bending over my grocery cart – didn’t help.
I tried leaning up against a refrigerated section – didn’t help.
So I went to the fruit juices – which thankfully were right there – and got me a small Simply Raspberry Lemonade – and drank it.
It took maybe 10 minutes or so, but I was okay.
Holy fucking shit.
I have had diabetes for a couple of years and have had low blood sugar (in the 60s and 70s) with no problems. In fact, I pretty much have no way of telling if my blood sugar is high or low, because I’ve never had (and still don’t have) the usual symptoms. I have been very complacent about this. Not so much now – not that I’m going to go screaming into the night or run around like the proverbial chicken sans head.
I’m going to stash a couple glucose tablets in my purse; and I will not go from breakfast until late afternoon without eating anything (and then go on a big grocery shopping run).
I would like to think I’m smarter than this, but the evidence tends to indicate otherwise.
One thought on “THIS FAT OLD LADY GETS SHAKY WITH IT”
I’m grateful you were OK finally.
