I woke up; my heart pounding and sweat just pouring off of me. As my eyes adjusted to the dim light of the bedroom, I realized that it had just been a dream; the shakiness, feeling dizzy, my CGM buzzing a low blood sugar and the number on the monitor coming in at 29.
This had happened before; dreams where I was the one with diabetes and I was experiencing a low blood sugar. It always amazes me how vivid and real the symptoms are.
In my dream I was at work, and I was struggling to tell my co-workers what was wrong. I was on the verge of passing out and I managed to spit the words, "my blood sugar..." out, when they all came running.
That's when I awoke to the dexcom screaming about a LOW that my daughter was experiencing right at that moment. I ran into her room, and the check turned up a 56.
This is also not the first time I've had dreams about being low, only to awake and find that Elise actually is.
Once again, I am amazed by motherhood.
