I think I had a low last night

When I woke up this morning my meter, a syringe, and a bottle of insulin were all in bed with me, an open bottle of water was next to my bed, and my blood sugar was 60. No readings in my memory show any tests during the night, but I remember getting up once last night thinking I should test and feeling dizzy. I must have fallen back asleep before I could test. Kinda funny. Luckily my bs wasn't lower than 60, and the rest of the day has been great bs wise.

Anyone else ever wake up with random diabetes supplies in bed with them?

Indeed and various other paraphanelia... Like an unopened bottle of juice, a box of crackers (usually spilled all over me), juice/soda/other sugared beverage covering the front of my pjs, opened and unopened lancets sprawled under and around me, a bottle of test strips, wasted -- dumped all over the bed. Sometimes, there'll be blood smears on my hands or my sheets from tests that went awry... It's weird.

I'll never find lancets in bed with me since it takes a fully conscious effort for me to think about lancets and changing them.

And when I do I need to remember to put it on the calendar so I know I am good for another 6 months ;)

I once found a bottle of shampoo, the wireless keyboard to the computer, and a sleeve of Ritz crackers in the bed when I woke up.

I felt like I was having a Midnight McGyver moment.

Wow Kerri, you must have done a tour of the whole house that night.

Ahh, yes. Not on the level of Kerri, though!:-)
Juice bottles, syringes, cellphone are favs- once found a dead mouse in my bed! (don't ask me how that happened, I don't know if I was low or not) My pump tubing also tends to do whacky things, if I just toss it into bed with me it will either end up around the bedpost, or around my neck(once).
