low

hitting a low in class, swearing.
squinting at the board, staring.
digits, words blurring
my mind's shutting down
unable to focus,
uncontrollably shaking,
breathe!
donít panic!
stay awake!
contribute to class!
never ending shouts
staringblurringshuttingdownbreathingspinning-
panic.
no end.
keep your head down until you run dry.

Author's Note
diabetes is a rather invisible illness, but in reality, a diabeticĎs day is a rollercoaster of emotions and challenges that donít stop when you sleep. itís being hyper aware at all times, problems with spontaneity and bad organisation and society sees you as either someone without a disability or someone who just is too fat and therefore is ill. maybe thereís a bit more too that, but sometimes it feels like the world is against you in all ways possible. your own experience gets extra bad when your blood sugar is going crazy - hitting a low, especially when in public: blurry vision, shaking, hot flashes but getting really cold, hunger even passing out - or in the worst case: die. you feel so lost, no control and alone, like youíre going to die - a mini panic attack. itís the worst feeling.
