Sorry for the lack of posts last week. I'm trying to begin posting weekly, but sometimes it takes to for exciting diabetes related events to occur...
I should have known that a few days after reading Ally's post about having crazy, diabetes related dreams that I would have one too. I really should have. But I lack the foresight that hindsight bias thinks I should have, so here we are with a blog post about it instead. I digress. On to the dream.
In my dream, I was sleeping and then woke up with low blood sugar. (And as my friend and I talked about the other day, those are always the worst because you don't think you actually need to wake up in real life.) It was one of those really bad lows where I didn't even have the physical motivation/ strength to move the four inches to get my blood tester, so I was mentally yelling at myself to move and get up because I knew I needed to test my blood or things would have gone downhill.
After mentally yelling at myself, I woke up and was totally freaked out, thinking that I needed to test my blood because I was obviously low. It turns out I was actually in the high 100's and didn't have any blood sugar issues. It took me a few minutes to actually realize that most of what had just happened was actually a dream. I don't recommend having this kind of dream. It sucks.
I've heard of low blood sugar induced weird dreams, but I never expected to have an actual dream about something so real, if you know what I mean. It was definitely a chilling dream to have and I'm glad I don't have these kind of dreams often. (#fingerscrossed it doesn't happen again)
Moral of the Story: As soon as you read about it on another blog, it will happen to you.
