Was in Sainsbury's yesterday and had rather a bad episode - visual disturbances ,jerking ,disorientated . Normally I carry dextrose tablets but had forgotten and was looking for some on the shelves .
I was in a bit of a state when approached by staff ,I explained what i was looking for and that I'd be better when I got some sugar but inevitably they asked if I were diabetic . Is it easiest to say yes _ I'm a bit of a pedant but the proper explanation seems too complicated .
What do others do ? Even when carrying dextrose tablets it's sometimes a while before I'm straight so a few simple words to repeat ( or better yet ,a pre printed card ) would be handy .
PS I've often been troubled by these episodes in supermarkets and though not logical I wonder if the lighting contributes .
