    Just come out of a hypo (2.3) and I can't stop laughing, apparently my boyfriend couldn't get any sense out of me either :)

    I've had 3 fits (that I know of) in the last 25yrs I've switched to Lantus recently so I hope this helps.

    At the airport in Majorca waiting to board the plain to come home, it just hit me from nowhere I'd just done my bs 5 mins before and it was around 7.5 luckily I was on holiday with my older sister and her friends we managed to sort me out in time thank god. It was my first holiday abroad and without my parents we never did tell them that it happened.

    After having my daughter me and my fiancé took her out for the first time one minute we're stood showing her off to my partners work mates and boss the next minute I'm lying on the floor with my partner holding my hand telling me I'd had a hypo infront of everyone.( so embarrassing)

    Wow everyone's stories are brilliant! Think worst ever hypo was first time I ever drank (secretly) had been out with my big brother, came home pretending I was not at all drunk, fobbed off the parents and I went to bed, only before I went to sleep I decided to take my insulin?! Woke up around 4 hours later with me poor mam worried sick coz id had a fit, swallowing tongue, the lot, so let's just say I don't really drink all that much ever since :/

    Have also done the thing of ignoring all symptoms thinking they will totally just go away, done it once at work when I was trying to exchange something for a customer and basically kept minus-ing the item on the till n did not understand at all why it was saying we owed the customer around £500 for something that actually only costs 4.99 hahaha I do have to laugh about that one still or id cry coz the commotion and que I caused was just ridiculous! :D

    I laugh about it now but at the time I felt so guilty because my partner said I'd fallen forward onto the pram luckily he was holding the baby at the time and it's a good job I've got a good understanding partner:)

    I had a hypo once sitting in the dentist chair having a tooth pulled. Ambulance was called and I was carried through the waiting room strapped to a stretcher. It was really bad but when I think back it makes me laugh just thinking what the people waiting in the waiting room must have been thinking. "He was ok going in, now look at the state of him"

    I've had loads of embarrassing ones too. One that sticks in mind was chasing the works cat around the garden shouting "Suzie, Suzie I used to go out with a girl called Suzie.

    My colleagues were all looking out the window at me. Also the cat was called Nancy!

    I had one in the launderette and ended up washing the food I'd just purchased at Tesco's. That got some strange looks. Could probably write a book on them!

    I was in the shower and I opened my eyes and everything was black so, obviously terrified I got out the shower crawling on the floor looking for the door handle, opened the door and passed out from the hypo! I had the embarrassment of my family having to rush and pick up their naked child/sister haha! Least they're family xxx

    Can't say the tree enjoyed it too much! Probably why the police were so nice....... Thought I was with the Special Branch!......

    Sorry :)

    @kevinfitzgerald The unhappy tree? I've missed that story somehow, also any mention of the police - has it been deleted or is it in another thread?
    If you (like me) have a book's worth of amusing hypo anecdotes please do add them here! :happy:
