Altered diabetes states.

This is one of those #makessenseifyouhavediabetes stories, and it’s also a partial chronicle (not chronic) of a dream from over the weekend.

Somewhere in the night, I started dreaming that The Great Spousal Unit and I were in a department store, shopping for shoes. These were to be new shoes for me, and I’m pretty finicky about the shoes I buy. So I was taking too long, trying on shoes, putting them back, etc., and suddenly Maureen “remembered” something she needed to look for in another department. At this point, this is not too different from the norm.

But then, for some reason, I needed to find her again, so without putting my shoes back on, I started wandering through the store looking for my wife. And, like usual, I covered every department in the store, multiple floors, asking multiple people if they had seen her. They all said no, they hadn’t seen her.

But as I was walking away from one person I had asked, I heard her mention to someone that there was a customer walking through the store without shoes on. I was violating the “no shirt, no shoes, no service” rule. Now my paranoia was kicking in, and I was simultaneously looking for my wife and trying to dodge store security, who obviously wanted to cart me off to “mall prison”.

This continued on for some time, until I made it back into the shoe department, looking for the pair of shoes I walked in with. As dreams go, this was typical: I’m frantically searching for my shoes where I had left them, and I could see store security coming right after me.

Just before they closed in on me, I woke up suddenly. Being it was a weird dream, I took a moment to do a BG check: 52 mg/dL.

Must have been all that running around the store.

    HA!!!!! This is so great… (not the Low, but the dream). Maybe it’s because it’s midnight and I’m absolutely exhausted, but I can’t stop laughing. Such a vivid picture of “no shoes Stephen” wandering the store with security in pursuit! :)) Yeah, I tend to have crazy dreams when Low or High. Had one after watching Buried for the first time, thanks to crazy BGs, and there were spiders with infusion set legs trying to get me while buried in a coffin… and that’s not the craziest dreams of all! This could be a whole DOC series – Crazy Dreams of BG Wackiness. Or something. Thanks for sharing this one!

      Wow, sounds very Stephen King! Your description is why I don’t watch scary stuff before I go to sleep.
