Today, I took a test as part of a job requirement. I took a sip from a bottle of juice, and the lady leading the test gave me a warning. I tried to explain that if I didn't, I would faint. She took the bottle and hid it. 15 minutes later I collapsed. She thought I was faking. I'm hypoglycemic. FML

Wow. One on hand, you really should have said "I'm hypoglycemic," instead of just saying that you would faint. But on the other.. Taking juice away on a job test from somebody that claims that they'd faint... She should be getting in trouble for that. Hope you got the job!

#'s 1 & 2 obviously haven't the slightest idea why hypoglycemia is and probably should have kept their mouths shut on this one. Sorry that happened OP, bitch her out for it when you find her.

People have probably written answers on bottles they bring before. It's an understandable restriction, but in this case it could have been ignored.

Expensive? Not really; I have several that vary in cost between $3 and $25. You don't need to buy a gold plated medical bracelet or necklace. There are plenty of cheaper options out there.

it depends on the type of diabetes. type 2 diabetes is usually managed by diet, exercise, and sometimes a pill. people with type 1 diabetes, however, experience blood glucose levels that fluxuate much easier, and most are advised to wear something like a medic alert bracelet. my mom and uncle both have type 1 diabetes and they both wear medic alert bracelets.

Why didn't you tell her sometime in the 15 minutes before you collapsed that you're hypoglycemic? You deserved it, well and truly.

AGAIN with these "I fainted", "got a concussion" "got knocked out" "collapsed" stories, fuck people. If it's true, then wow that sucks. But if not, the mods need to get better stories.
