    Oh sheesh, Victoria. You had me on the edge of my seat while reading this. I’m sorry.

    I’m glad you were able to get through it alright and that you had loved ones around you.

    My most memorable low was when I was probably about ten or so and I had a friend over and we were outside playing and all of a sudden it hit me. I think I yelled it was time to go in, my mom was asleep and my sister was watching television. I checked my blood sugar and the meter said “LO below 18″ I was pretty calm at this piont but everything was fuzzy. I asked my sister to get me juice and she complained because she always had to get me juice when I was low.

    Seriously, my stomach was turning as I was reading this. I’m so glad you were ok!

    My most memorable low was about six months after I was diagnosed. My husband and I were sleeping in the basement of our house because it was so hot upstairs. I woke up with my alarm, went upstairs and sat down on the couch. I knew something was wrong but I couldn’t put my finger on why I felt so weird. I had very atypical symptoms. But, I tested and was at 32. I immediately became terrified because my husband was still asleep in the basement with a fan on and wouldn’t have been able to hear me if I needed help. I managed to treat it myself and everything was fine, but I’ve never forgotten that morning.

    AHH! I want to throw sugar at my laptop, even though I know it won’t do one bit of good. Am I ever glad you were coherent and with those who know you and what you need!

    Dude! That sounded so scary!

    Do your roommates know how to use the glucagon in case the next time is not at home?!

    ¬°Scarymente! I’m glad you’re okay.

    The scariest low happened about a year ago less than an hour after eating dinner. Lisa was away, and I was just hanging on. Although I’m not sure ever went below the mid 30s, I was dripping sweat and feeling quite disoriented and terrified at the same time. I’ve never quite had a low like that before.
