My low blood sugar symptoms are really crappy. I'm shakey, I sweat, I can't see straight, forming words becomes the most difficult thing in the world and sometimes I cry for no apparent reason.
I told you: crappy.
But, as much I hate the symptoms, I'd rather have them than be without them. These symptoms make me aware of the fact that I need to check my blood sugar, and it scares the hell out of me when I check my blood sugar and see a low reading without these symptoms.
Like this morning. 3.5mmol/l and no symptoms.
I checked my blood again: 3.4mmol/l.
And then I'm going through my symptoms. And drinking a juice carton at the same time!
I looked at my hands to see if they're shaking - no.
I felt my forehead to check for sweat - no.
I could see perfectly fine.
I started ranting about how I had no symptoms - forming words: check!
And I wasn't crying.
I get so angry when this happens and I lose faith in my instincts.
