I get hypos.

My blood glucose goes up and down. Today I been hypo a lot. And I had lucozade to correct it each time. This evening I had a really bad one. My blood glucose was 2.2 which is close to coma. I really thought I might die this time. I was knocking back lucozade but it takes time for the glucose to get into the blood stream. I really thought that was it. I wrote on SW. A few hearted my post. OzDiver replied. He knew I was in a dangerous state. He talked me through it and never left me. I could have died. And I want publicly to thank OzDiver for looking after me tonight. Thanks Oz D. Love you to bits. x

I'm glad you're okay. Messing around with health problems isn't worth it.

[@1175566,Flowerzdtj] I seriously was not messing around. I'm a girl. Insulin is a hormone and it somehow links to oestrogen. I have days when it's difficult to keep out of hypo. Well it's a monthly cycle actually. Mid cycle my blood glucose goes crashing down. Like today!
