There is nothing I love more than to travel and explore. I love getting lost in someone else’s city. It was during one of our travels to London that we decided to hop a cheap flight to Paris for a day.
I was so over joyed I could barely sleep the night before we caught our 6am flight. We were in front of the Champs-Elysees before 9am Parisian time, blending in with commuters and tourist we headed east towards La Place de la Concorde.
I was beyond excited.
The crisp autumn morning slowly began to warm; I took my scarf off and soon after took off my jacket. We walked and talked mapping out our day as we went.
I started to sweat, still smiling ear-to-ear and filled with excitement, I noticed everyone around including my travel companion was still bundled up.
“How come everyone is cold when it is so hot?”
As I asked the question I suddenly realized I was having a low blood sugar episode. My hypoglycemia symptoms were completely masked by my excitement.
A bottle of Orangina and crepe Nutella later I felt, as cold as everyone else, my scarf and jacket were back on and Paris, for that day was our oyster.
That day is my most memorable diabetes day. Today’s prompt is Memories –
“Today we’re going to share our most memorable diabetes day. You can take this anywhere…. your or your loved one’s diagnosis, a bad low, a bad high, a big success, any day that you’d like to share. (Thanks to Jasmine of Silver-Lined for this topic suggestion.)”
