I must admit to something, I am a bit embarrassed but sometimes, I am okay with my blood glucose going low. My brain recognizes this as super happy fun party in my mouth time. It is a rare occasion for me to have sweets.
As is the case with my normal diet I cannot go crazy with it. However, it is nice to enjoy some cookies or a candy bar knowing that it is saving my life. It is probably the only benefit of diabetes, well that and the sympathy from the opposite sex.
I went to a wedding just a few months ago and during the reception I felt a low coming on BUT it was also close to cake time. I want to be clear I would never let myself get dangerously low, but I knew cake was coming soon and also did I mention it was awesome wedding cake? The wait was totally worth it, the cake was fantastic and my low became right, and all was right with the world.
I never purposely go low just for snacks though. That would be dumb. I know how I feel when I am low and I do not let it get out of control. If I am coming off as defensive it is because I know some will see this as irresponsible. I know what my body can handle. It is just nice to know that to be fixed of what ails me sometimes is delicious candy. It is a rare moment for me so let me enjoy it.
