Swing low sweet chariot

Our steadfast routine is to walk for an hour around dawn every day. It never disappoints.

I try to keep my blood sugar above 4.0 mmol/L (72mg/dl) at all times.

Especially during the night.

Occasionally I stuff up, and it dips into the threes. A little too much insulin injected, a bite or two less into my pie hole at dinner, or a slightly faster pace or longer distance during my daily walk will do it.

Rarely do I sleep through a hypoglycaemic episode.

Instead, I have vivid dreams about food and my inability to get it.

Or, deeply frightening nightmares.

My wife’s response: “There, there, it’s all OK, now go and check your sugar”.

She’s lovely.
