Top Secret Tuesday – I will burn you just like teenage love

By Courtney | 3 Rookie Marks »

I will knock you off your feet
I will burn you just like teenage love
I will eat you just like meat
I will break you into pieces

That’s me during a low blood sugar.

Way Too Low - Diabetes 365 Day 7 - Oct 12, 2007

You’re pretty much a target to get eaten alive if you cross my path during a low blood sugar. Most people know that. A lot of people that know that will keep at me when I’m low just to see how angry I’ll get (they find it amusing). A lot of people keep at me not to see how angry I’ll get but because they’re just plain stupid and don’t get the part where I’m telling them to “shut up or they’re going to regret it”. The wise ones will leave me be as it doesn’t take much to make me snap during a low blood sugar.

You may have read my entry about mom asking me “are you low?” (I woudn’t normally say this, but that’s probably the smartest thing my mom does in terms of speaking to me these days.)

But if you want to, go ahead, try it, say a couple words when I’m low and find out what kind of demons are inside me, I dare you. You’ll pretty much regret it. And I won’t apologize because you brought it upon yourself. On the off chance that you didn’t know what happens when my blood sugar goes low (i get snappy, argumentative, overly emotional) and on the off chance that the first time you piss me off while I’m low I don’t tell you to “shut up and leave me alone” you might get an apology (but the chances of that are fairly slim).

Your words could possibly be completely harmless, but if I’m low there’s really no reason to what you’re saying and you’re wrong no matter what you’re saying so I will possibly go off on you anyways.

Sometimes I will keep my mouth shut, but there are times when other people are talking to me that the need to keep my mouth shut overrides itself and the need to tell them to shut up or they’ll regret it overrides itself and they just get eaten alive. I do give fair warning though. (fair warning applies to the first time you were warned EVER! there is no need to continuely warn you each time I’m low, once you’ve been told, you’ve been told and the need to retell you doesn’t exist, if you can’t remember, it’s not my fault)

You have been warned:

I will knock you off your feet
I will burn you just like teenage love
I will eat you just like meat
I will break you into pieces

  3. 22. Sheesh. I know when I hit 44 I was a basket case. I am not diabetic but am battling hypoglycemia. Tell me about the anger. And the tears. I go nuts. I cannot keep my sugar normal almost no matter what I eat. I see yet another endocrinologit Thursday. I have yet to meet one I like. Maybe this one will charm me.
    Good luck in Phoenix. If there is a ride to the cure in NM let me know. I would gladly SAG for you. Ride, girl.
