When your blood sugar drops below 70, watch out.
The other day I took too much insulin and left the house without eating breakfast.
I was in a long line at Aldi’s and noticed my hands were shaking.
Then I started sweating profusely. I was dizzy and felt like I was going to pass out.
I realized that my sugar was low.
I grabbed a candy bar and stuffed the whole thing in my mouth, swallowed and sat on the floor.
I tried to stay conscious. I could hear a woman say, “This man needs help.”
The candy bar brought me back. After five minutes, I got up and explained to the cashier and the five customers who’d gathered that I was diabetic.
Since I was put on insulin, this has happened to me five times in five years.
I’ve told the women at work that if I start acting funny, please stuff a Snickers bar in my mouth–
That’s my favorite: Snickers.
