When i’m exercising, I try to bring some kind of snack along, but sometimes I forget or get surprised. Do you have a favorite approach for handling an unexpected low?
I was out walking the other night, before dinner, and found myself going low about 2 miles from home.
Fortunately, there was a convenience store on the block and I went in to medicate with candy. I am partial to Mentos, but they didn’t have any. So I went with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I ate two of them and washed it down with sweetened iced tea.
It struck me at the time as ironic that I was looking at these candies for their medicinal value and properties as drugs. ‘Which will work better - a hershey’s with almonds or a 3 musketeers?’ (I would guess the 3 musketeers).
It also reminded me of the famous Al Pacino scene in Godfather Part 3 when he goes low in front of the Cardinal:
When I first saw that movie, I really didn’t understand what was happening. Diabetes - needing a candy, huh? I appreciate it more now.
