By trying to keep my blood sugars a little higher than normal I kind of forgot how bad a real low blood sugar can be. I often forget that a very low blood sugar can lead to unconsciousness, it has been almost seventeen years since a low blood sugar has caused unconsciousness for me. I have that super hero feeling when I get low, it has been seventeen years I will be fine as long as I have some juice and something to eat. I will often push myself a little more because I know that I can go below 50 and be ok. I know that is not good but I don't know why I feel that way.
Today the blood sugar above snuck up on me, I felt tired while working but figured it was from my bike ride yesterday and all of the walking that I was doing. I had a few glucose tabs twenty minutes before my blood sugar, I felt low but I felt like I was around 70, my CGM said that I was at 81. In my mind I had no reason to worry, I could get in safely for lunch and have a juice box to fix my low. When I saw 38 I did a double take, I had not seen a number like that in some time. I had just walked almost ten miles, the 38 scared me. I hate to think about it but what if I had gone unconscious, I'm not going to write anymore about that because of how much it scares me.
The rest of the day went very smoothly but I believe I will be a little more careful moving forward. Low blood sugars are never fun but they happen and I can learn fron
