What’s On Your Bedside Table?

What do you mean, all the glucose tab jars were in the car and you were out of juice so you stashed one giant marshmallow on your bedside table in case of low blood sugars?

Potentially a bit gross, but practical.  Serves as a throw pillow when not in use.

  1. This is funny timing JUST because I treated a low yesterday with one of those things. And yes, they are of throw-pillow proportions.

    I imagine that a dusting of cat hair makes it even more delicious….

    I currently have a stash of Love Hearts on my bedside table (don’t know if you have them in the US – they are kind of an iconic 1980s candy that I recently discovered to my excitement are still being made). They have little messages on them – this morning I ate ‘funny face’, ‘dream on’, ‘only you’ and ‘first love’. That was enough – just under 4g – cos sugar was only down to 3.4 (about 56) – I don’t get serious lows, not being on insulin etc, but I knew I wouldn’t be eating breakfast for a while. Kind of strange to have messages on your low-treaters – usually I try to save the romantic ones to give to by husband (not that he particularly likes them!) but this morning I actually felt low (which is unusual for me, especially at 3.4, but then I’ve been running high for few weeks due to steroids, so maybe that is why?) so I just scarfed then down.

    I USED TO leave foodstuffs near my bed (even under my pillow – in the case of some Swedish Fish, many years ago) but nowadays all you’ll find there is a box of Juicy Juice. That’s because during the winter a long while ago, I was awakened by a mouse running across my face (I kid you not!) I realized, after screaming, that he (or she?) was just trying to get at the Swedish Fish that were under my pillow!!!
