Re: [IP] Parental advice...



My mother and I both thought this was hilarious (I was diagnosed at age 14,
I'm now 40 and Mom lives with me).  I do think it's important for us to
recognize in ourselves that sudden crankiness can be a sign of a hypo.
However, when I was married, any time my husband and I were arguing and I
made a really good point he couldn't counter, he'd say "Oh, your blood sugar
must be low!"  It absolutely infuriated me!!!  He used is a weapon, not as a
helpful observation.

But we thought your statement was very funny!  <:~).
