I'm a great advocate of the philosophy of never letting diabetes get in the way of your goals; you can do anything you put your mind to, just like anyone else.
My question is: Has a low BG ever made you change your plans or prevented you from doing something? This occurred to me last night. You see, I had planned on going to get my blood test done for my A1C this morning. I stopped eating and drinking at an appropriate time last night to be ready for the fasting blood test. Before I went to bed, my BG was 6.0 mmol/L (I think taht converts to about 108). I thought "Great! So my fasting in the morning will probably be good as well!" But at 5 a.m., I woke up with a low BG of 2.6 (about 47). Obviously, I had to treat it by, in this case, drinking some orange juice. Soooo... There went my plans for my outing to the lab this morning, since I was no longer fasting! I was so frustrated, since it's not always easy for me to get there during the week!
As I was laying in bed waiting for my sugar to come back up, I thought of scenarios that some others may have been through: dropping just before going on stage for a dance competition, dropping during a business meeting just before having to give an important presentation...
Anybody got any stories to share?
