The Spanish bit was handy on my way back from Ibiza last year (first time they ever stopped me) I think it was more the gel in the frio than anything else.

Not unheard-of, Aurora. My lovely exBIL , type 1, had very scary delirious hypos - I'm talking 30 years ago. The worst I knew of was on a train with his two small children, and the other passengers jumped to the usual conclusion..
I'm not saying this to be alarmist, just to say some people do have ( or used to have in the olden days ) hypos like this.

Thanks for posting that Tessa - I'd never seen him in that state before, so was really distressed.   Must have been very hard on your exBiL's children to see a parent like that.

And thanks for posting your thanks, Aurora. It was absolutely awful for the children , and they've never forgotten it. Hopefully modern meters, and increased hypo-awareness, it should be possible to avoid these events most of the time. As soon as your son spots a particularly delicious pair of arms ( quite often in this weather ) he must reach for the glucose...

Horrible, and you have my sympathies.
 
However I try very hard to be a 'glass half FULL' person, and my sense of humour being as it is .......  so .......

This is just the sort of thing a mother needs as weaponry when seeking to embarrass her child.  File it away and keep it, but let him know you have it tucked away ......

hi sorry i am so late posting on this topic but having had first hand experience.......


it has been many years (about 33 i think) but i was found by a work colleague in a supermarket standing in front of the sweets
not really moving or doing anything-- now in my mind i would have been thinking i needed the sweets but couldnt figure out how to choose and pay  for them i just stood there ( probably 1/2 an hour)


i think the key for me is to always carry an abundance of glucose ( i carry rowntree's fruit pastilles 4 pastilles = 10grams carb) and i always have them in my pocket , in my rucksack , in the car drinks pocket , my wife;s handbag , my desk drawer , and a colleagues drawer


the point being better to have to many hanging around than to be stuck short like i was all that time ago


hope this helps....
