I'm just not the mom that I used to be - in many ways, really.
But for today, my apologies go out to all of my playdate pals. I was driving home from a playdate the other day and I realized that I had left without helping to clean up. Once, not too long ago, I would have prided myself on teaching my children good manners. In this case, good manners would be helping to clean up the toys when you have a playdate at someone else's house. I am not being rude, I just have so many things going on in my head all the time that I can't focus. Unfortunately, I missed an opportunity to teach my children this lesson. And I'm hoping that I did not get the "BAD MOM" label and they will invite us back again! Please accept my apology and maybe let me explain myself a little :)
Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) is the most common and most dangerous condition for many people with type 1 diabetes. Very low blood sugar may lead to insulin shock, which can be life threatening if not promptly treated. Low blood sugar occurs when the body has too little food/glucose or too much insulin.
The following are all potential reasons that a person with diabetes might have low blood sugar: Too much insulin taken, Eating less than usual, Eating later than usual, Insulin was injected at a site on the body where the absorption rate is faster than usual, Injecting extra insulin after forgetting about a previous dose, More exercise than normal, Illness or injury , Other hormones, Medication interaction
The following is a list of general symptoms that indicate low blood sugar (the person with type 1 diabetes may exhibit one or more of these): Dizziness, Nervousness, Personality change/irrational behavior, Blurry vision, Shakiness, Nausea, Crying, Sluggishness, Sweating, Poor coordination, Hunger, Lightheadedness, Irritability, Drowsiness, Erratic response to questions, Inability to concentrate
So, while I may be annoyed that I can't multi-task like I once could, I am so VERY grateful to the littleSevere symptoms (symptoms as listed above, plus): Convulsions, Unconsciousness
D-conscience inside my head. Because I HAVE TO QUESTION......I HAVE TO CHECK!
