Well, lately here on this website I’ve not been able to post into forums or blogs without having to reach the administrators due to their website having problems with folks like myself using Firefox. And now again, having issues with logging on, but I’m taking advantage of having a hypo – e.g. low blood sugar. I want to write a blog in this frame of mine to see what sort of nonsense comes off my fingertips.
I generally don’t like to work in this condition – as I told the kind Admin dude at the other end as he asked me for details of what is occurring while I try to post this blog – I told him – "I’m in hypo land – I’m not wanting to respond to you at the moment as I'm not quite here - let me write my blog". I’m one of the fortunate ones (no comment from the peanut gallery – ahhh – what the heck go ahead and give me your comments below) that knows when they are low. I can deal with it and still function – in what I think is probably a semi-comical way (Just For Laughs Comedy Festival is here in Montreal should I go and do a street act?). I don’t get hypos that often thank goodness, less more now then when I was on MDI (multiple dosage injections) – but they happen.
Who knows what set this off? It’s a fairly normal day – only thing I’ve done different – eaten abit more fruit then I normally do – perhaps overbolused – I am not a person to over analyze my situation. It’s just happening and I’m doing what I normally would not do to quelch a low blood sugar– I’m experimenting grazing on foods. Just imagine a pig at a trough – that’s sort of me right now – but I’m coming out of the hypo now as I type this out – fingers are not bouncing all over the keyboard as I type (they tend to twitch on their own – like they have a brain in each tip of the finger). Prior to starting to type this blog, I consumed a glass of OJ (something I rarely touch), a few cherries (did not count – they were awesome tasting), some little cheese fishy shaped things (forget the brand name – but they are okay – bit dry mind you) – my last bit of consumption – and I swear my belly is bulging – some sesame snaps. I know for sure those will bring up the BG’s no doubt – as the package says 20g of carb.
So, for now, I am going to attempt to post this to Diabetes1 in the Blog area – if you are reading this – you’ll know I got thru’ – either via Firefox or Internet Explorer. I am also using another computer to do this work with a roller ball mouse - I feel like I'm Alice in Wonderland at this desktop here .
