I am new to the site and this group and rather new to the world of loving someone with Type 1. Over the past several months my boyfriend has had two scary low blood sugar episodes. Both happened when we were sleeping and I woke up to find him sweaty and in one case - dreaming and talking (or so I thought) to me with his eyes open.
In the first instance I was unable to rouse him and had to call 911. He was so out of it I couldn't get him to take anything my mouth. I was frightened - to say the least.
During the second low, his sleep talking woke me up out of a dead sleep and It took me a few minutes to realize that he was low, and I am kicking myself a bit for this.
We got through them; he is fine and I feel a bit wiser as I am starting to know the warning signs of his lows, but I feel I need to hear from others who have been loving a Type 1 longer than I have.
I'd appreciate any tips or stories on how I can act quickly and confidently in these situations. I care for this man immensely and want to be as supportive and helpful as possible. Thank you!
