lol this is going to sound VERY weird. I'm not diabetic in my dreams until my blood sugar actually goes low or high while I'm asleep. Then in my dream, my diabetic alert dog and meter will magically appear and I'll check and treat. Of course checking and treating in my dream isn't helping in real life...So either I wake up or get woken up by the alert dog.
One way to find out if you have tested is to check the last entry on your monitor - I sometimes have that problem too. Another way I can tell is if I have a sweet taste in my mouth. Then I know that I must have hypoed in the middle of the night and taken some sugar on board, but quite often I am so much asleep or so low that I cannot remember what I have done. Process of elimination. Detective work is required! Lol.
Man....which company handles YOUR dreams!!! Saddly, diabetes and I are one, even in dreamland....but oddly, so are other people who are NOT diabetic in real life! I guess I just want to make one big sweet family!
Had a dream last night....Not Diabetic. But, I was cleaning out the rafters in my old house and found my Grandmothers 1940's suitcase, filled with papers, old bank statements, etc. Looked inside and found a big envelope.....It was packed with $100 bills!!!! I am heading to my old house very soon, getting that suitcase!! I like that when I dream I am not diabetic....nice for a change, even if it is only a dream.
