Last night's low was brought to you by over-correction. So I was a little high after a botched pod change, and I dosed myself 2 units in order to bring it down. Went to eat a snack a little later and was going quick (stupidly) and dosed again. Was feeling fine until about 2 hours later when I was playing with my son and my receiver started blaring. I was wearing fuzzy pants with loose pockets, so I must have missed the initial >70 alarm. Needless to say I was a little concerned when I felt the double arrow down warning, and my level read 51.
I used the kit in our family room to check myself and it read 48. Ruh roh. I thankfully had some frosting tubes tucked away and immediately pounded one down. Didn't quite catch it in time. I checked again about 10 minutes later, shaking and sweating and I was at 32. I had my son go and get what I refer to as 'dad's super juice'. Which is Ocean Spray Cran-Grape with extra sugar mixed in :D. I chugged a 12oz glass of that and proceeded to loose it for about 10 minutes while the sugar kicked in. I finally came back to full reality/consciousness once the glucose had fully hit my system.
Hate nights like that. I went from 'Yay, I feel great' to 'okay, who slipped what into my drink' in a matter of minutes. My son's a champ and knew exactly what to do (we've talked about it before). Though the rest of the night was spent in the bathroom with a good book :\
