I woke up during the middle of the night Tuesday night around 2:00 am, from a dream with my heart beating really fast. Most people would just say "bad dream" and go back to sleep. However, bad dreams and fast heartbeat are signs of a low blood sugar, and I really didn't want to get out of bed to check it. I have this inner dialog with myself, kind of like Lizzie McGuire. I thought to myself, is this a low blood sugar or "just a bad dream". Something about being wakened in the middle of the night makes a person not so rational, I tell myself its just a dream. I pull out a memory from my lamaze classes, "if it's real labor it won't go away and you won't be able to fall back to sleep" and tell myself, "if it is a low blood sugar it won't stop, and I won't fall back to sleep". Stupid right, but I just didn't want to get out of bed. Well I woke up at 6:00 am, inner dialogue again "must not have been my blood sugar, but then I started thinking, what if it was and my liver decided to do it's job and produce glucose, well then you dummy you will wake up with a high blood sugar which is no way to start the day". Got up, checked, it was 80, WOW great number. Guess it was "just a bad dream". I wish this all was "just a bad dream".
