Oh jhemi...what an experience. I am sure others with diabetes can give you their experiences when their sugar drops like that. But from a fibro perspective, I have found myself on streets that I never knew existed. I even drove into my neighbors driveway and wondered why my garage door opener didn't work. Our houses are not in any way similar. I am blaming The Fog...and at the moment, that horrific Lexapro I am withdrawing from.
I am guessing it was a combo of the diabetes, fog and maybe your meds. Glad you weren't hurt.
That is low blood sugar and that most likely is what caused your accident. If I'm in the 60's I can start shaking. I am diabetic and I always have food in my purse. I will carry candy (or you could get the glucose tablets) and I carry a small snack bag of sour dough pretzel nuggets for the carbs. (They don't get all smashed up in my purse.) If I find myself getting "low" I can take care of the situation until I get home. You do have to be very careful about that.
