January 29, 2018: Unexpected Lows

This morning began a bit strange, since I got very little sleep the night before. It wasn’t until I was still lying awake at 2am that I checked my blood sugar level, and discovered a low. I tried to bring my levels back up, but they remained low well into the early morning hours.

I live with Type 1 diabetes, and I’m accustomed to adjusting medicine and following a certain diet. Handing wild lows are part of my life, but they remain difficult to deal with. I’m just thankful that my low glucose wasn’t as severe as it was a few months ago. That incident was truly scary.

This morning I got my glucose level back on track, then went on with my work routine. Sometimes the effects of a bad low tends to linger throughout, but thankfully thay didn’t happen. I’m so thankful that I have friends and family in my life who I can lean on in case things become very difficult.
