A few years ago in Toronto, a woman driving an 18-Wheeler lead police on about a 50 km "chase". She was swerving, hitting the rail, while all the time, surrounded by about 8 cruisers. Finally, she just stopped and the police all surrounded her with guns fixed.
It ended up that her blood-sugar was very low and she was unaware that the police were after her. Her first question to them was "What did I do wrong?"
You'd be surprised at how many of our emergency personnel are fairly ignorant to diabetic symptoms.
When I was rushed to the hospital with hypERglycaemia, the ambulance driver thought I'd been drinking heavily. And the doctor that came to my house before the ambulance came, thought I'd been sniffing cocaine all day. I've never even SEEN cocaine in my life.
