Great summation!! I like the analogy with sleep. Kinda' can freak you out if you think too hard on it ;-) One ponders how aware are we aware of awareness. I guess that is why they have doctors and nurses . . . to be aware for us?

I have experienced low blood sugar too, and it does feel like you are going to die! The worst episode I had, all I wanted to do was lie on the floor and go unconscious. I worked in a hospital and they knew what to do, so I survived. But so scary.
It sucks doesn't it? :-) There is a stark feeling of helplessness as you shared. The fight/flight response is apparent, but kinda' you said you want to surrender that kinda' . . . I dun'no how to describe it.
I think you have described it quite well. No one who hasn't experienced it is truly going to understand it. Sorry that you live alone, you need to be extra careful and carry sugar with you at all times & a phone!
