I just wanted to get out of there but then my low brain spotted holiday discount chocolate. OH-fucking-NO! I kept telling myself "NO" but as I grabbed chocolate goodies and balanced them in my arms I couldn't even stop myself. I mean, I have trouble passing sale chocolate on a normal day, never mind while being low. As my starving brain was trying to decide between which kind of chocolate to buy more of, my low was getting progressively worse.
I plodded out to my car with my 2 bags of chocolate and peanut butter and then I crumpled into my seat. I quickly mowed down a few glucose tablets and patiently waited. Whaaaat?! Yeah, I went for the nasty chalky gag-inducing glucose tablets while a big bag of sweet goodies sat on the seat next to me.
As I came out of my starving brain of hypoglycemia I looked over and thought, what have I done? You know how they say hypoglycemia can often be disregarded as someone being drunk? I think I experienced something like that because I didn't even remember buying all that chocolate!
This was during my lunchtime to boot. Post hypos usually leave me a bit nauseous and no desire to eat. I continued to sit there in my car eating chocolate. MAJOR SIGH!! (don't worry, I bolused for it.) I was pissed off.
I will be hiding this stuff somewhere in my house where I will hopefully forget it even exists.
The moral of the story? Don't go into the drug store while low.
