what does a low blood sugar feel like?

I have had people ask me this question over the years that I have been diabetic.  I never know how to answer.  "It feels horrible?"  "Like you just might die?"  Those just don't seem like the right answers.  It just isn't fun that is for sure!  I remember the first low I ever had.  I had just been diagnosed a day or two before and we had just come home from the grocery store.  I remember dropping to the floor in our kitchen and telling my mom that I thought I was going to die!! Surely I wasn't supposed to feel like this!  Well I guess you start to get used to it but that doesn't keep it from wiping you out! Does anyone else feel exhausted after a low?

looking forward to my A1c

For years I have dreaded going to my diabetes check ups and to get my A1c.  I hate going in to talk to the doctor when I know that my numbers have not been what I know it should be and its my fault for not taking control.  I have made changes lately and hopefully my new A1c will be awesome! I may actually be excited to go see the Doctor and not filled with dread!  So here is to a good number!
