People with diabetes sometimes have weird dreams. The author of this article, Mike Hoskins, has diabetes and has weird dreams. In one of his dreams he ate a salad with spinach in it. A little piece of spinach got stuck in his front tooth. He couldn’t get the spinach to budge. He used his toothbrush and still couldn’t get it. He finally got it out with his finger. When he removed it it was no longer spinach. It was a blood test strip.
- Instead, it stayed securely where it was. I used my toothbrush to target that spot specifically, and the spinach instinctively acted like a turtle and hid itself further into my gum. Almost disappearing.
- No memory remains of what the entirety of the dream was about, or how I ended up in the particular moment that I did.
- But the brunt of what I’m writing about involved me standing in front of a bathroom mirror, probably in the evening post-dinner hours. Apparently, I had eaten a salad with spinach in it with my dinner.
