(Day 20 of NaBloPoMo)
After a bizarre, and scary dream I had a few nights ago, I started thinking about the dreams I was having before Diabetes entered our lives and now after the disease has taken over.
Before Diabetes my dreams consisted of my kids, work, FALLING, being CHASED, etc...You know, the usual sorts of dreams.
BUT now that we have Diabetes in our lives I find myself dreaming of Diabetes. As if living it with The Superhero day in and day out, my subconscious is now forcing me to dream about it too.
Sometimes it is good stuff, like those rare occasions when things go PERFECTLY.
Then there are those OTHER dreams, when things go WRONG.
The one I had the other night made me wake up with my heart racing and I am SO thankful was not real! In my dream I somehow bolused The Superhero 12.9 units of insulin!
12.9 units without carbs to match would KILL him.
AND his ration is 1:65, so I remember in my dream doing the math he would have needed 838.5 grams carbohydrates.
Now, if this were to happen in real life (hopefully will NEVER happen), we would just go to the ER and get a good ol' IV of sugary fluids.
But in my dream, I was frantically running around like a crazy person trying to find enough carbs to shove into his mouth.
Super, scary dream! And why 12.9 units. Such an odd amount. Weird
Anyway, what do YOU dream about?
