Let’s be honest, sometimes it makes you feel a little crazy, with the sweating, the jitters, paranoia, not being able to think etc. It can be so hard to try and keep a level head, especially when it happens at an inconvenient time.
Note: This does not apply to really bad lows, in that case, who cares, shout It from the roof tops and get some sugar into you!
Yes, when this happens around other people, I focus so much energy on not snapping at them and trying to act normal while trying to get food and not have it go worse. Then I get so exhausted after my blood sugar finally comes up and people are like “why are you so tired, the night just started”. It’s hard to explain to them I just spent so much trying not to yell at you and be a jerk because it’s not your fault, but you really need to shut your mouth about your boyfriend, I just want chocolate.
But then when I’m at home with family or really close friends I just scream SHUT UP! FOOOOOOOOOD! FOOOD! and they generally get the idea to not talk to me for at least 20 minutes.
