A better 2 days away I've had............................

So my hubby and I decide to take afew days away right??? The 1st night my pump becomes detached from me. I wake up at 3 in the morning with a 511 bs. So I think I got it together and the next night I fall to a 21 and my hubby was gone so it was all up to me to do this right??? My vision was so blured and well I was sweating beyond beleive and life just wasn't going my way ok???? I slowly make it over to the frige in our room and get the gluagon kit (now that was an adventure in itself) anyway I got it out and decided to try and give my ownself a shot of it (another adventure) I finally get a shot of it (after many minutes of trying) then of coures my hubby comes in asking what I had ate. Eating REALLY??? All I could think about was the gluagon shot. Long story short was the worst few days away I had Lets not talk about how high I got after the shot! LOL!

Hi Doris, the old joke is, you need a vacation after your vacation. Have a Happy Mothers Day!

Well Doris you survived it all. Maybe that is what we need to do start our own TV show...new this fall on the CRAPO TV Network, Survivor Diabetic. Watch as diabetic, with low blood sugar, fumble through getting OJ, eating glucose tabs and giving themselves the dreaded gluc shot. Then watch as their blood sugar goes through the outer rim of the solar system and they feel like crap.

Yep diabetic survivor, oh you know you'd watch.

Yep I would so totally! LOL! Problem with that is I might just be the star of the show after these past 2 days! LOL!

OMG, I like the story, glad you survived it all and sure can feel for you. I've helped my hubby brokenpole out of many many lows with gluc shots. Even talked my daughter through giving him the shot over the phone once. I know well all you have to do to prepare the shot, and cannot imagine how hard that was for you to do with blurred vision. First time I gave him the shot I forgot to remove the little plastic cap over the place to inject the solution into the powder and tried to stick the needle through it in my panic to fix the injection for him.So glad you were able to do this yourself. I agree with what my husband brokenpole says above, we need a new reality show on diabetics fumbling through this. To those of us who know, it would be hilarious!

Oh I think it would be. Honestly we get so dumb at that time! LOL! Soparky has a good idea there but like I told him after the last 2 days I'm afraid I'd be the star! LOL! Thank u my hubby has helped me through many lows and I feel for both of u.

What a fun vacation. Never given myself a glucagon shot--yet. You're brave, girl.

Comment by Doris D on May 12, 2012 at 2:06pm

WEEEll Gerri it took me about 7 trys to inject the fluid into the bottle and then another 7 tries to give myself the shot. All in all it was funny though when my husband came into the room that was pumped up to 85 degreese and here I sat with the bed comfortable around me shanking like a leaf. OMG what an adventure! LOL!

Comment by Gerri on May 12, 2012 at 2:10pm

That would be me. Can't do a thing or think when low like that. Told you, I think, the time I tried to make a call using the TV remote. Where's the dial tone--lol.
