Right now I am experiencing a mega serious hypo. I've always wanted to vlog a hypo in the midst of its grips but since re-formatting my hard drive I no longer have webcam software. The main reason why I haven't done that as of yet is because of fear that the world might call me masochistic. Why would anybody want to broadcast a hypoglycemic episode? Well because we write and talk about it so much. I think that SEEING a hypo from the outside point of view would lead to a larger understanding that you would never know. Even from one diabetic to another.
I won't ask you to forgive my psycho-babble here because writing while low was the point of this post. I'll tell you that spell check is going to get a serious run for it's money when I'm done writing. I've got all the symptoms and they came on like a fucking freight train. Within minutes I was hyperventilating, sweating, droopy tired eyes and I could barely make it to my meter. The world started closing in on my vision.
I am having one of the worst lows one can have. I mean timing wise for me. I bolused for a meal only an hour ago. I finished 30 minutes ago. I did not over bolus because this is soup I eat all the time and know well what the carb count is. 1 hour after bolusing my BG is at 2.4 mmol/l (43 mg/dl). That means that it's probably going to continue to crash for the next few hours. The part that makes me want to cry is that I JUST ate. If you've read much of my blog at all you'll know that eating is hard for me. I fill up quickly and often feel nauseous. So only 30 minutes post meal even a kids size juice box is difficult. So I've squeezed a juice box in there as well as a dex4 liquid glucose. It's the why that's got me so confused. Why now? I haven't done anything different.
I think I need to replace the mega expired glucagon kit.
My apologies for not updating the post. I've never really thought of going back to the post. Yes, I was fine after monitoring it for 3 hours. It still got low but I managed. Thank you for the kind thoughts.
