Since I have had diabetes longer then I have been driving I usually dont have a problem with it. Although tonight I was in the middle of nowhere and frankly did not know where I was when all of a sudden I was lightheaded and sweating. There was no were to pull over so I was forced to drive and check my sugar at the same time (with the car light on) 59 but i am in the middle of nowere so I am searching in my purse and trying to keep my eyes on the road (while i am sweeting and lightheaded.) I can't find ANYTHING TO EAT! I usually carry Glugagon for these situations but i used it a couple weeks ago and did not put another one in my purse finally I remember my mom put so stuff in my glovebox. So I reach over and get some glucose tablets GREAT THERE IS ONLY 2! So I am chewing as fast as I can but still nothing and now i am starting to shake. I know I am droping fast but I dont even know where I am. So I get my phone to call for help. Then I see a COP! But trying to flag him down is worse. I blare my horn and flash my light and put on my 4ways finally he gets the clue. I pull over and he walks to my window. He thinks I am drunk. I show him my medicalert and try to explane that i am low. He tells me to hold on while he goes to his car and brings back some candy. After eating a whole king size twix I think him and ask him how to get back to a major high so I can get some food. He tells me. and I can not think him enough. I know if it had not been for my gradian angel I could have gotten into a accident or passed out (or both).
I think this is the first time I have EVER BEEN GLAD TO BE PULLED OVER!
