Have been meaning to write something since it happened but last Wednesday evening I headed out to a bowls match on foot - just the easiest way to get to that ground and realised that I hadn't had any B12 since the morning and I hadn't got any with me but thought it would be okay.
During the match, towards the end, I started to find noise and movements on the other rinks really distracting and was starting to have difficulties concentrating but when I came off the rink I was starting to feel quite out of it. It took me ages to take my shoes off and head into the club house and then I was feeling all wobbly on my feet - should really have made my excuses and gone home at that point but didn't. Anyway, had some food but it was like being there - everyone around me and not able to really distinguish what conversation was which - just everything shouting at me as we ate. Offered my opposite number a drink and went up to the bar to collect it and the bar man asked me if I was okay because I looked really tired - muttered something about having the B12 equivalent of a hypo ... sat for a few minutes and then realised that if I didn't go then then I wasn't going to make it to bed ... so despite protests from everyone else, and being noticeably wobbly on my feet I just went. Actually getting outside and walking up the lane was quite nice after the cacophony of the clubhouse but it was a bit difficult to keep moving - though having the counterweight of my bowls bag meant that I could use my weight a bit.
Got in and made it up the stairs - by this point I was feeling very very unstable on the feet so it was leaning with a hand on the wall or some surface to make sure I wasn't falling over as I went from bathroom to bedroom and then got into bed, and took some of the B12 I keep by the bed ... and that was as much as I remember.
Slept quite well and was okay the next morning but it was quite an eye-opener - being a while since I let my levels get that low. Friend commented that he was surprised by how quickly it all came on.
Needless to say I'm definitely going to make sure that I have my nasal spray with me for bowls in the future - usually do - this was first time I hadn't because I didn't have a skirt with pockets in it on this time ...
