So my sugars had been betting better and I got that awsome job on friday and for a moment I thought everything was going great, then I went to my dad's house and my brother found me having a seizure because I was low. That was friday night and I just got home from the hospital today-monday. I don't know how I could let this happen. I didnt eat anything different- I did eat. I told people about my job and you guys and I was with my husband when we ate dinner, but I couldnt even tell you what I was wearing. I didnt know my own name at one point, what my dads name was, I said my own picture was "little dog" which is my dog. I was askign questions, the same ones over and over every 5 mins. My dad was actually crying he thought I was going to die. It was scary, for everyone around me then me. i must have taken too much before sleep as a correction because my meter said 469, so I obviosly took too much. I dont remember doing it or how much but thats the only expanation. Today is my first day home and I really want to enjoy it w/ my husband, parents, bro and dogs. :)

Oh I am so much better. I got a new mix of meds that actually work and my control is great- I'm waking up normal and feeling so much better. It was pretty scary- my brother found me and my big dog thought I was playing with him. My dad is still freaked out by it but things are getting so much better everyday :)
