SOooooO i woke up in the middle of the night not feeling well... luckly unlike my uncle who has just been recently diagnosed i can feel a low comming on .. so i get out of bed to check my sugar .. uh oh 55 ... so i go in to kitchen to look for some juice to take .. uh oh .. dad decided to finish up the last of the juice .. so i go into the cabinet to see if i can find anything sweet i can take .. another problem .. mom doesnt like keeping anything sweet in the house so im not tempted to eat it ... so at 2 am im searching through the house for my purse for my glucose tablets ... another problem left my purse in the car when i got home from schooll .... NOW what do i do flipping the apartment upside down because i know i have some more glucose tablets somewhere in there .... i end up waking mom and dad up because i just cant take it anymore .... had dad walk out to the car and get my glucose tablets ... while mom is trying to calm me down ... so finally dad comes back in the house and i down 3 tablets .... aaaaahhhhh relief ... wating 15minutes back up to 101... feeling comfortable to go back to bed ...

so i wake up this morning ..( an hour late for work ) and as im walking into the kitchen i remebered where i had put the other pack of glucose tablets..... in my night stand ... i guess being so low didnt let me think clearly ... so now i decided to keep them in the kitchen somewhere i know that no matter what ill find them ...

Glucose tabs shouldn't really be "tempting" in the way that other sweets might be--if I thought I might go low I'd stash them everywhere, including in plain sight.

youre right the tabs are not temping like other sweets .. what my mother doesnt keep in the house are candy, cakes and cookies things like that.. and you right i shoud stash them everywhere ..
