Life Events

Last Sunday I almost shuffled off the mortal coil.

One of the joys of having diabetes is the ability-no the responsibility-to mess with your body chemistry. One of the challenges of that is that when you are doing that, it is often because your blood sugar is already jacked one  wya or another which in turn makes decision making challenging sometimes.

With that said, my sugars headed north to around 600 and in attempts to bring it down, I took too much insulin causing them to head south rather quickly. Once you drop below 100 things get serious. When you get below 70, things get critical. Fortunately for me my wife and girls got there with probably about 10 minutes to spare and got EMS activated and some glucose and honey in me. Next thing I know I’m riding in an ambulance to the hospital with no memory of what the hell happened.

Scary shit.
