Still can't exactly remember this morning's events, but from what I was told...
I was up and in the bathroom around 7am. When I woke up later, I was back in bed. I don't remember how I got there, but I didn't pass out.

My job called me in TWICE for OT around 8am. Thankfully I didn't answer the phone.

I don't remember any of it, and my bg was a very low 38 around 7am, and a low 46 an hour later.

I tried to get up for a bloodwork appt at 9am, but just couldn't get it together... I was still out of it, my head was killing me, the effects of the low bg were just too much. I slept until 11am.

I don't know how, but I dragged myself out of bed and made it to my bloodwork appt by 11:30, raised my bg to 79.

It's almost 2pm, I still feel wiped. I feel like I just wanna go back to bed.

I really do try not to be angry about having diabetes... I really do.

I really do try.

I hear ya there. I woke up at 5:19 am on Wednesday and tested at 39. I got it back up by drinking juice but I felt like sh*t ALL DAY after that. It's really hard to explain to someone who doesn't have this disease how the swings can literally wipe you out. And ooh was I grumpy all day too. Hang in there. I understand.

Lows seem to be worse while you are sleeping/when you wake up in the morning...

I don't know why but that's my experience. Hit a 41 this afternoon but recovered fast from it.
A few years ago, I've had exactly what you describe, and I wasn't really "there" for the entire day!
So I'm really with you, hope you'll feel better soon.
