I'm feeling better today. My blood sugars are still a little wacky but that's to be expected after yesterday. I was lucky to get past another near miss. I'm usually asymptomatic and feel fine when my blood sugar is 50 so by the time I feel bad I'm really low. I can't afford to get that low again.

The really bad thing about this episode is that it was all my fault. I have a cold and, as everyone knows, infections play havoc with your blood sugar. In addition, the day before the hypoglycemic attack I ate the "mother lode". Yes, the very mother lode I blogged about. I had intended to eat a bite and it was so good I came back later for another bite and another bite and well, eventually it was gone. So stupid. Thinking I could eat a grapefruit the next morning after carbing out was even dumber.

The greasy burger wasn't the best choice but at least it had some nutritional value. Eating the entire mother lode was inexcusable. That's why I don't keep stuff like that here. It's hard to carb overload with cabbage. LOL.

I am going to behave now.
