Yesterday morning I opened my eyes and I was in the middle of dreaming and being awake. I saw a dream about a lady who has trahheostomy and I had a neckalce around my neck and I tought that i have been intubated. So a crabed my neckalse and I broke it. Couldn't say a word. I was just swinging in my bed. Trying to understand what is going on. My roommate tought that I was drunk because I had been out the day beforde that. But I was drinking only 2 beers and ate quite good. So came this hypo. out of the blue. I couldn't swallow sugarwater that he made for me. I spit it all out. So he was thinking about biology class and poured the water into my mouth hold my head face down and hold my mouth the way i couldn't open it. So began the carbs melt/absorbe with the help of amylase. Bit by bit I began to understood what is going on. I cryed after that for hours because i understood that if he wouldn't slept in that day to work I would be dead by now. So... everyone here who has been helping someone with diabetes. You're angels. My roommate is and I told him that but he said "no problem". He still doesn't understand what he did.

Life is short...

OMG! I am a type 2(ish) suffer from lows more than highs. It was my birthday at the end of january. Had a couple of beers and 4 shooters. That is the most alcohol i have drank in 2 years. It has been a few weeks now and I am STILL trying to stabalize myself back to normal. Now I have been too high, not at a dangerous level, but enough to makw me feel like a big bag of poo.

I should probably get that. But I have moved from Estonia to Norway now. And everything is new for me, language and health system. I am going to ring my doctor tomorrow to get an appointment to diabetes doctor here. Everything is different here - medicin. And I could probably get a pump when I work and live here. I am goin' to give it a try. Altough I am really affraid of the pump. It is a big stress to live another country... but I work here and I love it. Anyways, I am going to give it a try... can't afford it in Estonia. And food is different so my bloodsugar is goin' like a swing.. up and down, up and down.
