When I get low you better get out of my way. I get mean. It's like i'm mad at the world. My hands and legs also start to feel weird. My hands go to sleep and it's like my legs can't support my weight. I also start to crave pickles for some reason. It takes forever to get my sugar back up.
Yeah I'm a Diabetic but it's not gonna get to me because I won't let it!
One night my friends and I snuck out and we walked pretty far so one our way back home I started feeling low and walking slower and slower. One of my friends stayed with me and i was walking to and the side into the street haha so we walked and then i saw a cow but she said that there wasnt one there. Everyone else was way ahead so they got me some sugar and we met up at the high school. That was the funnest near death experiance ever lol
I never feel the same, really... Sometimes (when I'm really low) I get awfull headaces and it feels like I'm going down a very fast elevator :( and I feel like I'm shaking everywhere. Once, when I was still little, I wouldn't get out of my uncle's car. He got really mad!! He didn't understand that I was going low, so he went complaining to my mom. When they came down I was nowhere to be found... In the end they found me sound asleep under a bush in our huge garden... Hehe! And once, when I was still a toddler I nagged my mom for food in the mall, but she was busy and she didn't realize I was low, so I went into the sweet shop and started eating the sweets out of those huge containers! My mom had some explaining to do! :)
i space out when im low..... so i'll be staring off into space and my friends are like shannon u need to test!!! the lowest i've ever been was 32! when im high i just feel lik im gonna throw up!! idk whats the highest i've been..... but one time i was at camp and my numbers were through the roof the whole last night and they wouldnt let me give a correction with my pump!! they were like i wonder why your so high!!! and im like well if u let me give myself insulin i wouldnt be!!!! it was so frustrating!!
all the small town people with their big remarks they ain't got jack to say about my movie star she's got style :)
This one time I was at my church, like helping the priest or whatever during the service, and we were kneeling while he was giving his speal about whatever it was we were reflecting on, when all of a sudden I had like tunnel vision, and it wouldn't go away. I thought I was like going blind so i started blinking like crazy, and the next thing I know my dad was running me down the stairs with my mom trailing behind babbling frantically. I couldn't figure out why she was asking me if I could hear her because to me, it was obvious that I could, so I was like 'shut up, I can hear just fine. Oh, by the way my shoe fell off.' and then my dad set me down at the bottom of the stairs and I had some juice. It was really wierd, because I usually know when my BG's dropping.
I feel like shakey and am usually dizzy or lightheaded. This time there was no warning, I just couldnt see anything and then I passed out. It was really scary.
And then the next day everyone at school was like 'are you ok?' and it took me awhile to figure out that they were referring to my episode at church. haha. I think it freaked my friends out more than me.
when im low i crave chicken and chocolate and i am completly drained and i start to fall asleep out of no where and i yell alot
I sometimes get really irritable when I'm low. I often regret arguments with my parents/sister/friends once I realize that I'm low, and there is no point to the argument.
When I'm low I get really confused and I hate it when people ask me questions because it just confuses me even more. So one day I'm in the nurses office and I had just been 52 and this kid i didn't really like came in and stood right next to me and waited for the nurse. While he was waiting he started asking me all these questions about diabetes. I was trying to answer them but I just couldn't even think of the words to use, so i just yelled "Shut up and sit your butt down in the chair and wait for the nurse!" and then I left. But then I came back because I realized i was still low and had to have another juice. But when i came back the kid was sitting in his chair and didn't ask me anything else. Who knew I could be that effective when I'm low?
I get like really quiet at first then I get really really mean. I start saying mean things and then I get so sleepy. My legs start feeling like noodles and my hands go numb. Then I get really really really hungry. I tend to over eat when I'm low so the rebounds are really high. I get really confused and I get mad when people ask me all kinds of questions because I can't answer them strait. I also start to breathe like really fast. I feel like I'm hypervenelating. It also feels like the walls and everyone are closing in on me. One time I almost fought my best friend. Luckily my friends were there to hold me back and calm me down. I also say crazy things. It's like I'm speaking in a foregin language.
I was once 54 and woke up to a lovely hallucination... It was blue, looked like a jack-in-the-box, and appeared to be coming out of the window. I screamed, after thinking it was out to get me, then I finally got up and checked my bg.
It's weird, sometimes I'm 65 and really shaky and feel like I'm going to pass out, but I can be 27 and functioning perfectly fine.
oh i totally do the same thing Jackie! not the hallucinations...thats wierd haha but the really low and i feel fine-not really low i feel shaky thing. it just happended the other day...soooo annoying!
the tongue tingly thing happens to me when im low, too!!!! it's really annoying!!!!! i also feel REALLY shaky and tired and annoyed or hyper!
Like last year i was sitting in my basement watching TV and i got hungry so i went upstairs to get something to eat. i tested my BS and it turned out my BS was 28!!!!! that was the lowest i've ever gone. it was really strange though because i wasn't really doing anything to cause my BS to go so low!!!!
d-_-b <3 PEACE.OUT.
When i go low i get super confused. My mom will be asking me questions like whats you blood sugar? And after my confusion comes a round of anger and then i want to go to sleep. And when i'm high i wont really even notice it. I will be pissed off at the littlest things though and i'll start yelling at my dad and he'll yell back and then my mom comes in with my test kit tells my dad to calm down. I always apoligize to him but then he'll start yelling at me for my BS being so high and i'll yell back and then i get grounded.
sometimes when i'm low i hilucinate. one morning i woke up and looked out my window (theres a parking lot) and i see a field of bannanas growing out of the ground and a rodeo clow, homer simpson, micheal jackson, snow white and a mexian with a donkey picking them. and the next day i woke up and was low again. (i always look out my window in the morning) adn i see a pirate ship with the pirates from the pirates of the carribean on it and this other guy who is really scary and i screamed my mom came running into my room and i was screaming the pirates are coming for me!
I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life ...John Lennon
no not really.....normally i just stuff my face with glucose pills until i feel better :oP jk but yeah i just crave sugar
