After an afternoon at the beach I headed back to my parents to have a nice home cooked meal. On the way home my blood sugar was just below my set range, I quickly grabbed a Powerade and drank 16oz. I arrived home and figured my blood sugar was back in range. I was not feeing great but figured it was a nice little sunburn I had gotten. When I arrived home I had a Fiber One bar and walked out to sit on the couch to relax. I would eventually lay down and fall asleep, ten minutes later someone was tickling my feet and she quickly became nervous when I didn't sit up. After being asked what my blood was and not getting a response off she ran to my bedroom to get my tester. I was completely out of it and pricked my finger but was unable to get the blood on to the strip but got assistance. As the number appeared it was dangerously out of range. With a Gatorade in front of me I was told to drink it immediately as she went and grabbed the glucagon. Until that point I was not aware of my surroundings, but as soon as I saw the glucagon I came too. I have never used glucagon in my 25yrs of living with diabetes and I don't plan on ever having too. I'm not sure if that is good or bad but I don't ever want to use glucagon for a blood sugar that is out of range.
I was very angry with myself as my blood got back into range. I hold myself to a very high standard when it comes to my blood sugar. I'm still ashamed with myself, I know that out of range blood sugars happen but I'm still angry that the people on my company had to be there to witness it. I'm lucky to have people around me that know what to do and know me well enough to know when I'm in or out of range. Since that moment my blood sugars have been in range. As always things happen and I will learn from my experience!!
