I have gone low while driving many times. I reach into my purse and drink my juice box. But I know also that, as I get older, my responses to lows have changed. I'm not always aware of my lows and I also sometimes don't believe I'm low, even when someone is there telling me I'm low or after I've tested my blood sugar (which, I know, sounds crazy, but nothing makes sense when I'm low). So this story really gets to me. I mean, I feel a whole lot of sympathy for the man, because you are not rational when you're low, and even someone in the car with you telling you to drink juice might not do the trick. It's hard to train yourself to respond sometimes. I try to tell myself that if I'm EVER confused, AT ALL, I should test, because I never get confused if I'm not low. Also, if I'm ever super-emotional and want to cry or freak out, I'm probably low. But it's hard. When you get into that state, it's hard to think, "Oh, I don't really want to cry while I'm on the phone with PECO, I'm just low."
Anyway, this article has given me food for thought, and I'll really have to be more vigilant of my blood sugar while driving. I don't drive very often at all because I walk to work. But still.
