    Top bunk and liquor don't mix. Though, they come equipped with side rails for a reason.

    Karma strives to remain in balance. Maybe you're due for some good now.

    Unless , of course, you've been real bad.

    Hypoglycemia makes sense. But so does orthostatic hypotension.

    Anyway, diabetes sucks. It's a pain in the ass. But, with good control...it's not a death sentence.

    Just be sure to follow your basal guidelines for insulin. (Especially if checking glucose on a sliding scale.)
    Eat small frequent meals during the day and also have some form of quickly dissolved candy (glucose) nearby at all times.

    You can do it man. You're not alone.

    The little meals sound good in theory but actually doesn't work well for everyone!!!

    No, I am not diabetic but have several friends who are many type 2.

    I thought the institution beds would have those pop-up sides or maybe some restraining straps.

    - Very old and crusty

    OK, OK man. No need for shouting. Take your metoprolol and have a diet coke. Things will get better. I promise.
