Diabetes/MS scare

Hey all! A lot of you asked. I am doing so much better! Thanks to a med change and some other adjustments! So thank you for your prayers and concerns!

So, now on to my title. Yesterday I had a friend of my wife taking me to my endocrinologist appointment and to get an anniversary card for my wife (19 years married today!!!!!) it was super humid. I started to feel really really sick! Terribly sick! I was sweating like crazy, had to take my foot brace off, watch. And if it wasn't a female friend, I would have stripped more. Don't ask, it's what I do. Anyway. During this I was in and out of consciousness. Turns out my blood sugar was crashing and I mistook it for MS heat!!! I came too long enough to ask her to stop for juice. Now this woman is like my wife. In looks, attitude and calm under fire. She ran into the closest store got me a ton of juice. I managed to stay awake to gulp it down and not throw up. Thank you God! Then started to come to. Got to the Drs and had them check my sugar. After two giant things of juice my sugar was only 100! That was 25 minutes late. Meaning, it must have been deadly low! My wife told me later that her friend was actually on the phone with her the entire time. She was telling me things I don't remember. I basically was near death. So scary. I tell this story to make a point. NEVER EVER IGNORE YOUR BODY! Pay attention to what is telling you! Even with just MS. Go outside prepared for what you may encounter. Cooling cloths, water, meds. Whatever you have. If like me and suffer with more than just MS make sure you are doubly prepared! I look back at yesterday and contemplate the fact I may not have made it to today. My wedding anniversary. My wife would have killed me! Ha!

    I'm so glad you're okay now and thank you for telling us to make sure we have water and meds plus a cooling vest! Your wife and her friend are the best for you and that makes me happy to know you have those around you that care.

    Happy Anniversary!

  • Happy anniversary to a guy who's really blessed to be here at all, by all accounts!

    I'm relieved it all turned out so well, but sure hope you are very careful! Scary stuff!

  • Wow Rob, that is super scary! Don't die, who would I have to give crap to?? Huh? Stop being so self-centered. 🀣

    Don't you wear a pump? Are they changing your meds? Have you been really bad lately?

    Happy Anniversary

  • Yes, no, no, no and no. Sometimes with a pump you miss things. As the saying goes. Excuse my language ladies. Shit happens. I am well controlled and justbthe combo of heat/MS/Diabetes happened to catch me off guard!

    Rob

  • Happy Belated Anniversary! I am happy you are doing better. I hope you & your wife had a nice evening.

  • @rlh1974 Holy crap, Rob!! WTH. Do we need to get you a baby sitter?!! 😁

    That's scary sh. We're glad you're okay, but knock it off already! You're averaging a calamity a week! Geez. That poor wife of yours. You better have gotten her something great!

    Happy Anniversary to both of you! πŸ’

    Glad you're here for another day!

    ...Maybe we can get you one of those candy necklaces. You know, the ones with the elastic cord? Would look good. 😁

  • That is average for me. But hey! Haven't had stitches in a while! maybe I am due? Who knows. Every watch that show home improvement with Tim Allen? Well, The emergency room know me by name. Like cheers!

  • @rlh1974 Oh gawd! That says a lot. Please be careful!
