This morning’s show has glued the GREEDY tag on her. And led to me nearly clouting her, as she declaimed to the world that she couldn’t wait a minute longer for her lunch or she’d collapse with low blood sugar (this at 11:35, after a ‘snack’ at 9:00 and another at 11:00).
Some people are remarkably insensitive.
I’ve always planned my rampage for a belgian chocolate shop
You should offer to test the fake’s blood – that’ll shut them up! Or prove they have ‘hypoglycaemia’, which is (also) a separate medical condition – my uncle has it. Means a non-D person can go hypo randomly, which I had never heard of, and didn’t know my uncle had, until I was diagnosed… (If I remember right, maybe I should google BEFORE posting? Nah, sod it )
That said, I used to get ‘hypos’ before I was diagnosed (not that I knew what they were). And I mean years before. But only if I was understandably short on energy – after trying to do too much with out lunch or something. Being the slim-whatever-I-eat body type, I suspect it’s a lot easier to burn through reserves…
A nurse asked me to test her blood sugar once as she felt faint after she had to go without lunch on a busy shift. Her BS was 3.2. i have friends who definitely need to eat, otherwise they become muddled and cranky. I think it exists in the non-diabetic world. Not as bad as us of course. We needn’t feel sorry for them.
Actually, I thought this thread was about those times when hypo when NOTHING to eat seems to be enough. I mean, you know you’ve probably had enough, know that if only you can stop eating and sit the 15 minutes out you’ll probably be fine, but somehow you have to go on eating anything and everything delicious in sight. And then some.
@Tim – I expect so, sounds sensible. That might have more to do with my uncles problem actually – he used to be a semi-pro cyclist!
@Lizz – those are sorta my favourite hypos! Cause food tastes SO good, and you can eat for a national team! My problem at the moment is selecting the best emergency rations, nice so I will eat them, but not so nice I’ll eat them whenever! The Snickers flapjacks I got last weekend haven;t lasted anywhere near as long as my budget requires
I know how irritating it can be -and sympathise with you for wanting to clout your colleague but maybe you should test your colleague’s BG. It could be that she has T2. Often, because the body isn’t getting the glucose it craves because of insulin resistance, it urges the type of ;
