Even in my dreams

As a general rule, I try to never bore people with the details of my dreams. Because listening to someone recount their dream to you is like hearing someone drone on about their evening of drunkenness; it never makes any sense and is way more interesting to the one telling the tale than the one having to hear it.

Having said that, I did have a doozy the other night. I was back in high school, trying to open my locker when I was hit with a wave of dizziness. I kept falling down and felt horrible, sweaty and I couldn't see straight.

When a teacher walked towards me I told him, "you need to help me, I have type 1 diabetes and I'm having a low blood sugar."

At that exact moment, Eileen buzzed and woke me up. When I went into Elise's room to check, I saw 76 with double arrows down. A finger poke showed her at 64.

The weird thing about the dream is that the symptoms were very vivid... I actually felt like I was experiencing a low BG.

Perhaps it was just a coincidence. Maybe it was just Lenny and Harold speaking to me through a dream. But I'd like to think it's that strong bond between a mother and her child.


  1. That is kind of amazing!!

    That is one thing that I feel so guilty of. I know what diabetes is and what is does and how to treat it but I will never REALLY know unless I have experienced it and maybe you just got a glimpse...

  2. Wow! I agree with Nicole. I always feel bad when I try to make Ally understand that she needs to tell me when she feels low...she's not recognizing her low BG symptoms much yet...and then I realize that I have no idea how to explain it to her really. I just have words...not complete understanding.

    Glad you shared that dream!

  3. WoW! Talk about mommy intuition.

    I've had dreams where it was me who had diabetes, and it's always so weird.

  4. WOW! That's CRAZY!!!!!!!

    Love Lenny and Harold...and LOVE EILEEN!
