where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Sugars are dropping now which makes me think... Does anyone else feel like curling up into a ball when having a hypo? Sometimes I just want to crumple in a heap

OMG. Thankfully I've only had two severe drops. I was down and out for almost two days after. So not what we learned in nursing school. I also have fibromyalgia so I'm sure the stress to my body didn't

Be careful that you stay conscious have an orange carton to hand or lucozade and carry something that informs person/emergency services you are Diabetic.
