Going Offline

Taking a little break from the OC to tend to some offline business--namely work, which has gotten quite crazy in the last week or so. I'll be back soon!

What Happens Tomorrow?

In honor of the low I rang in at after lunch today (56), I thought I'd list all the symptoms of hypoglycemia I've had over the years:

  • Mouth & tongue going numb
  • Mental confusion
  • Irrational thinking (I need juice, not glucose tabs...!)
  • Blind spots in both eyes (during Officially Scary lows)
  • Sudden onset of depression/sad thoughts
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Shaking hands
  • Excessive chattiness (this one drives my DH nuts sometimes)

And, most recently, tingling in my limbs/extremities. Right now my left arm apparently enjoys favored nation status for this particular phenomenon...no idea why, it just starts when I'm going below 70 mg/dl. It's like my elbow is a tuning fork when I'm hovering in the 50s. Weird.


Like all things associated with the D, I'm sure this too shall pass. At least I can still tell when I'm low, for the most part. How about you all out there in OC-land?
