to desribe in detail what a low feels like and specifically how it affects your cognitive thinking - your reasoning, your decision-making abilities, your concentration, your ability to read & write. The same things for how it feels to be high. I'm just hoping that someone else can describe this better than I can (non-D) and then I can pass it on to my dd's school in hopes of making them understand why she may need a couple of academic accomodations when her blood sugar is out of range. I've tried, in vain, to get them to understand but I just must not be articulating it well. The just keep coming back with "Well, all she has to do is TELL us that she's having a problem" I can't them to understand that there are many times she is incapable of telling them she's having a problem because she doesn't realize it or just can't reason well enough to tell them what's wrong. Any Type 1's out there willing to share your experience?
