On Yesterday @DiabetesSupport asked everyone to tweet about about a time when they discovered that their blood sugar levels hand gone unusually low. We did this to bring an awareness to some of the common experiences that we as people with diabetes share with one another. Well, needless to say there was quite an array of responses…. (smile) One of the responses was from @JennaNicoleS, and she suggested that we compile these @replies so that everyone could have an opportunity to read them.

We decided to take her up on that idea… below is the result of the tweets from everyone that were given on the subject of hypoglycemia. We hope that you find them insightful, and we are sure that you can relate. And if I may say… though this is a serious topic, some of the responses were very humorus and they gave us reason to pause and smile :o)

Thanks for taking the time to share your experiences with others… it helps to know that there is someone else there who can understand and relate to what you are going through at times.

* P.S. When reading through these tweets, if you see someone that has replied in chronological order start reading their tweets from the bottom up… I haven’t figured out how to flip them yet – smile.*
