Today, I had to undergo a 5 hour glucose tolerance test. There are many factors that are weighing against me for possibly getting type 2 diabetes in the future.
There were approximately 10-12 seats in the waiting room. People that were getting x-rays and lab work would sit in there until they were called. For me, unfortunately, I was there for the 5 hour wait.
After my 1 hour blood draw, the sugar hit me like a ROCK and I decided to curl up in my seat and take a little nap. At this time, the room was empty.
When I woke up, there were 10-12 sets of eyeballs looking at me. I was so embarrassed! The whole waiting room filled up without me even knowing it! I had my hair hanging over my face and I'm sure I was probably catching flies with my mouth wide open.
As I got my wits about me, I wondered back to get my 2 hour blood draw. The nurse told me that they had to check me out to make sure I was ok. I've had bad experiences with glucose tolerance tests in the past and they were worried that I would pass out. As they noticed me breathing, they thought I was ok to be left alone.
Thankfully, the test went a lot better than the one's I've had in the past. Hopefully that's a good sign!
I hope I was able to make you smile today!!!
