In the past, DH (type I) has becomes aggressive, belligerent, mean, and sometimes violent when he goes very low (40 or less). Last night he was 35, so he drank 2 glasses of juice. An hour later, he tested again and was only 40, and this time refused to drink juice or eat anything. He just wanted to sleep or watch tv. Of course, knowing that was a bad idea when he was so low, I pestered him to either eat or drink (I even brought him juice). He got super annoyed and mean. He repeatedly stomped out of the room. I threatened to call 911, which I have done before when he went so low he was incoherent, but he just laughed at me. I've given him glucagon before, but he wouldn't let me near him this time. I really didn't know what to do.
What would you have done? Called the paramedics (he would have been PISSED at me if I had done that this time)? Let him make his own decision (which I did and he basically slept for a while, got up to drink a little, slept more, then woke up hours later feeling like death)? I hate being the wife in these situations; I get no thanks for trying to help him, yet all the flack.
