I awoke on Friday morning,

Not to my alarm clock blaring,

Not to my cell phone ringing,

But to unfamiliar voices talking.

People around my room moving.

My right hand and wrist stinging

From, I discovered, IV tubing.

And, while I was awakening,

I knew what was happening,

What everyone was doing.

And soon I started wondering

Why this keeps on happening -

My blood sugar dropping,

This time, while I was sleeping.

I couldn’t do anything

To prevent this kind of thing.

Diabetes is so very frustrating,

Scary, and plain confusing.

Soon those voices were talking

To me – asking everything,

And I knew just about nothing.

Then one of them was explaining

What they were discussing.

They’d soon be transporting

Me, so others could keep checking

To make sure things were improving.

Soon I was strapped down, riding,

Listening, hearing, processing

And yes, I was trying

To answer everything

The paramedic was asking.

Soon the ambulance was arriving

In a place where I knew no one, nothing.

Yes, I was definitely expecting

Something awkward, unsettling.

Nurses came and started introducing

Themselves while they were asking

The same things the EMTs wereasking,

And I still knew just about nothing.

Finally – silence and time for resting!

Oh wait, time for blood sugar testing!

It was high from the sugar I’d been receiving!

Then they made me eat something

Even though I wanted nothing.

Then I saw a person walking,

A face I was recognizing.

My school nurse was coming!

We started talking

About what was happening.

Yes, this was embarrassing.

The entire experience was frightening.

Yet, I hope you’re not crying

And I don’t want you worrying.

I AWOKE ON FRIDAY MORNING
BECAUSE GOD IS AMAZING!
