be having early hypo symptoms - it can
be confusing. I do a test to check what's
creating the symptoms. I've treated a
'hypo' without testing and realised later
it may not have been a hypo. I use an
Accu-Chek Mobile blood tester, which is
great for keeping close to me all the time.
No test strips or separate lancets. I tend
to keep everything in a Desang Classic
kitbag. I've had one for about 10 years.
Everything fits in and it also opens out to
be a little desk so you can do a test easily
anywhere. It's brilliant."
When it comes to hypos, he buys
Glucotabs in bulk online for himself and
his son. But usually if he feels a low
coming on and he's out and about he'll
buy some chocolate. He also keeps some
dried fruit in a tin in his rucksack which he
finds keeps him going if needed.
Much of Jacob's work with Miracle
Theatre and WildWorks is outdoors,
either in open-air theatres or in other open
spaces. He says, "I have a license to drive
the lorry with our gear in it, but I have to
see a consultant in Plymouth to have it
renewed. Because so much of our work
is open air we are constantly battling the
elements, but our audiences are loyal.
They bring sou'westers and flasks of
brandy, but the actors just have to keep
going in gales or hail. It's very rare that we
cancel. The Minack Theatre in particular
is stunning. The show sometimes pauses
if a shoal of dolphins goes by in the bay
behind it. It's great."
