Day 4: Oops!

This is my entry for day 4 of the National Diabetes Awareness Month Photo-a-Day challenge!

In terms of diabetes, I didn't have any screw up's today. This picture is from a while ago and was a huge screw up on my part.

I had gotten off a night shift at 7am that morning and had my usual bowl of cereal. I fell asleep around 8am and woke up on my own 2 hours later sweating and shaking. My only guess is that I still had active insulin in my system when I took more for my cereal which resulted in this low.

This is one I won't soon forget. I was home alone and felt close to passing out. It scared the crap out of me!

If you have a chance, I encourage you to take a look at this post (Click Here). Alanna at "Life on T1" had her friend Sara do a guest post on her blog. The post is a list of 30 things you should know about diabetes. It was super interesting. There were things on the list even I didn't know. It's also good if you don't have diabetes because it helps explain some myths, which helps spread awareness about our condition. You know, because it's diabetes awareness month!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
