Officially Scary Low

I was watching Netflix on my computer when I started feeling woozy. A little dizzy. A little sweaty. I felt like I was going low. I reached for a can of Coca-Cola and drank it. I expected to feel better quickly. When I didn't feel better I decided to test.

This was officially scary.

I didn't feel THAT low. I felt 40's low. Numb face, numb fingers, can't think or focus on what to do. Maybe my meter freaked out. Or maybe the Sugar Reaper showed up in my living room. Either way a blood sugar of <20 was hopefully a once in a lifetime reading.

Somehow I managed to not pass out. I drank several cans of Coke and stayed still on the sofa. Next time I tested I was 126. Then 196 and then... well, and then XPU the pump and I had a chat. Fixing a BG of <20 created a BG of >220. I didn't care. I still don't care. Sometimes the Rule of 15's doesn't apply.

This morning I woke up at 170. Normally a BG of 170 when I get up makes me angry. This morning I was just glad to wake up at all.
