Dealing with diabetes.

On a Saturday morning we usually watch the first half of the Premier League match in bed, and then get up.  Hubby stayed in bed while I got up.

When he finally got up he was struggling to walk.  He took his sugar reading and it was in the 40’s.  I immediately got his breakfast for him, with an all milk drink, added a yogurt for extra calories, and nutrition.

I made him stay sitting as his legs didn’t want to work for him.

We watched the end of the Leicester City – Chelsea match that was one of the best games I have seen.  So even, and a 2 – 2 draw was the only fair outcome.

We then go down to the gym.  I asked hubby if he wanted to go, he said he did, but wasn’t sure if he could manage it.  He told me to go, but I didn’t want to leave him.  Looking at him shuffling along, I am staying with him, and are both home watching the Liverpool – Southampton match, and if/or when he is ready we will go out.  If not I have plenty of exercise I can do here.

Signs of low blood sugar – Hypoglycemia.

Sweating. hunger, fainting, fatigue, lightheadedness, shaking, confusion, not responding, anxiety, pins and needles, sleepiness, unsteadiness, headache, irritability, palpitations, slurred speech, unsteadiness.

So you can see why I am not leaving him.

  1. Very sensible, Susie. My mum has diabetes, so I know how you feel. You’re such a good carer. Your hubby must be so glad he has you to look after him – you’re incredible. Hope he soon feels better and you’re able to go to the gym. 🤗 I’m just waiting to watch the Man U v Wolves match! 😨
