Cottonmouth Confession

I recently woke up in the middle of the night and realized my mouth was SUPER dry.  First thought –  high blood sugar.  I scrape myself out of bed and test my blood sugar.  I was relieved my blood sugar was 107, but was left wondering what was causing this sudden dry mouth.  I went back to bed and woke up a few hours later and realized I had been sleeping with my mouth slightly open.

BINGO – sleeping with your mouth open = incredibly dry mouth.  I pray I didn’t swallow a spider.

As a diabetic, I constantly second guess everything in my life (dry skin, blood shot eyes, even a minor scrape).  Every once in awhile when you discover that your recent ailment is just allergies or something “everyone” else experiences, it is kind of nice.
