I've never felt like this. Just the usual hunger, sweating, shakiness etc. A bit of light-headedness. I was speaking to the endo the other day about this when she suggested I should let more people know at work in case I have a hypo and scream at someone and they think that I am an arsehole rather than insulin challenged. I've never felt angry, emotional, sad in any way with a hypo (well, pissed off yes, because it's interfering with things I am trying to do, but not uncontrollably emotional or outwardly aggressive.) I've had hypos in meetings, with other people etc who have never cottoned on.
The endo suggested it might have something to do with different personalities - I think she meant that it might lower your inhibitions, like have a good drink. So if you get pissed off easy, or feel really emotional easily, it's more likely to happen when your sugars are low.
I know everyone's different and I have no doubt this legitimately happens to people but I was asking the endo about it in the context that maybe people act this way on occasions because hypoing 'allows' them to do it. It's a good excuse, in the same way that some people have posted about how they blamed a hypo (that didn't happen) to be forgiven for speaking to someone rudely, or getting out of activities, responsibilities. I know that this sort of comment has the potential to make people angry. But I never considered that hypos could have this affect until I came to Reality Check. I remember a friend at the gym told me that diabetics get pretty violent when their sugar is low, and I told him he was completely wrong, never having experienced it myself. So from my perspective, when I first came across it, I just thought people were using diabetes as an excuse for their behaviour. I don't think that's the case anymore, but I'm still a bit suspicious that some people allow themselves to 'lose it' sometimes, when they could have the ability to stay calm and focus through the hypo.
Apologies in advance if there are people wanting to throw a brick at me right now.
