Re: [IP] Hypo while driving



Hello.  I know where you're coming from with pregnancy.  My child is 2.  
But, let me tell you I remember vividly the ups and downs of my pregnancy.  
I don't recall labor much only the difficulty I had getting my sugars under 
control both before and after having my child.  My health care team was 
excellent during this time.  It will get better!  Just keep your chin up and 
remember.......Don't let Diabetes control you......YOU CONTROL IT!!!  I know 
it's frustrating!  Been there!  But you have to live too!
Best of luck!

Sherry,

I'm sorry to hear about your experience.  I know that must be very upsetting
to you.  I know the effects of hormonal issues (non-pregnancy) on 
bloodsugars
can be very frustrating so I can't even imagine what you must be going
through just after having a baby.  The best thing is to check your
bloodsugars and keep checking many times through out the day (especially
before getting in a car to drive).  I find sometimes my bloodsugars can drop
within minutes of a good reading.  Make sure you carry a fast acting sugar
with you - cans of regular soda, juice boxes, glucose tabs. etc.  Keep extra
in your car-I put mine in a plastic shoe box container in my car (juice box,
candy, crackers,etc.) so it's all in one place and I can just grab it and
start eating as soon as I need too.  I know it can be frustrating when you
feel as if others don't trust you to handle your bloodsugars but I'm sure
this is out of concern for your well being. It is very hard to adjust 
roaming
bloodsugars and I know everyone just wants to know that you are safe.
Believe me you are not alone on the bloodsugar rollercoaster.  I'm glad you
were not seriously injured and I hope that you sugars will even out for you
soon.

Take Care,  Linda
