Realllly bad day
I had the worse day of my life. Sorry if this gets long but I just want to talk.
I got up feeling fine and took the girls over to my moms and while I was dropping them off I had a funny feeling about today and told my mom, "mom Ihave a bad feeling about something"...but what do you do---stay home from work or school because you have a "bad feeling"? Plus I had a test to take and a paper due.
I went to school and to my first class (after parking in an ice rink....we have had an ice storm that come through the past couple days). I'm sitting in class and all of a sudden I am literally about to pass out! I have hypoglycemia problems but this was *really* bad. I don't know how I didn't pass out I felt REALLY bad and was totally out of it, my heart was racing and I was scared because Ive never felt this bad. I left the room and drank a coke (that will usually fix it) and came back and felt even WORSE and didn't think I would even be able to walk. I was feeling to stupid and scared to even ask for help (and I'm in a nursing class full of experienced ER RN's....lol!).
I go to the student union and buy 3 cokes and drink them all....and still feel reallllllly and scared. I can't even imagine how low my blood sugar must have been. I put my head down and blacked out and no one noticed...I was sitting down and I think I must have looked like I was sleeping or something. I was shaking really bad and I could tell the blood was drained out of my face. I drank another coke and after about 30 mins started feeling a tiny bit better, but still pretty bad.
I had a test to take, at this point you can't make them up so I had to go and take the stupid thing when I was in no health to take it and I know I didn't do so good because I was just totally out of it. No glucose to your brain equals not very good brain function! I finally felt ok to skip the rest of my classes and go back home.
So I was walking back to my car...now remember the parking lot is like a skating rink, it is *very icy* and the parking lot is at an angle. I get to my car and noticed I must have parked wrong but didn't think much of it and get in and notice a note on my windshield. Apparently my car had slid sideways on the ice when I was in class and HIT another car!!!! I just couldn't deal with this and started crying and was feeling so horrible anyways.
I drove home (I knew I was ok and not going to pass out). It took me about 5 hours for my blood sugar to get back to normal and even now at almost 8pm I feel ok but still can feel the effects.
Just a really sucky crappy day. I should have just listened to my gut and stayed home
