Unfortunately real life is not like that, as much as I would like to believe that I am I'm not in control. When faced with a blood sugar I have to understand my surroundings especially when "Minnie" and "Sharky" are around. For example tonight while getting them ready for bed my blood sugar started to drop. My Dexcom was reading 81, being alone I thought I could get "Shakry" to bed fix my low and then put "Minnie" to bed. What happened was what I should have planned for, "Sharky" was clingy so I ended up getting my apple juice and crackers, sitting on the couch and waiting until my blood sugar went up to put them to bed.
It is all about balance and not trying to be a low blood sugar super hero. I try to be that super hero to much, I have been known to say "I'm at 65 I can do that and I will be fine" while at work. As time has gone on my coworkers have learned and know when I can or can't do something. In turn that has taught me how to take that much needed timeout so that I can return to work without any problems. Much like life managing a low blood sugar is about knowing what is important and knowing what your limits are.
