People often ask me, which is worse, to have a high blood sugar or a low blood sugar? And I can never answer. I always end up giving some detailed account of what it is like to be high versus low and by the end of my rambling, both parties have forgotten that there was a question stated at the beginning of the conversation and that it has not been answered.
Why I dislike being low: The physical symptoms are not fun. My legs get weak and I want to sit down, my face gets sweaty, my vision gets blurry and worst of all I become incredibly irritated causing me to snap and say curt things that I only regret once my sugar has come up. Sometimes I realize that it is happening and if I just wait, it will go away. I don't have to say anything. But a lot of the time, I don't realize why I'm angry until after I've said something mean and my blood sugar has come up. I dislike this mood change the most and the guilt that follows.
I can agree with you on how it's hard to say which is worse. For me when I'm low I get dizzy if i'm super low, but most of the time i just get light headed, and weak. I actually don't seem to get alot of symptoms for when I'm high, but I do get really cranky most of the time. For me, being younger, I would say lows are worse for me, scarier as well. Yet, highs seem to be more creepy I guess, they sneak up on me because I don't have alot of symptoms. Anyone else ever had this? Thanks.
