No, really?

I had one of Those Lows last night.

You know the one.

I woke up feeling anxious. My pillow and sheets and pjs were soaked. My stomach was in knots of hunger and my brain felt like it was vibrating. I grabbed my bottle of glucose tabs off my bedside drawer and dumped five in my hand and put all five in my mouth at once. I pulled my pump o ut to check my CGM and notice it has been out of range for 40 minutes (I must have been sleeping on my transmitter).

I check my blood sugar while using every ounce of energy to chew the tabs.

Hands shake so bad when you need them not to.

My meter came back.

(~33 for my US friends)

10 Glucose tablets and a slice of bread with peanut butter, and a glass of almond milk with an upward arrow on the CGM later.....I slept like a baby.

I woke up at 5.3, like a champ!
