Seven GIFs to Describe Lows.

Recently, we asked our readers on Facebook to find a fictional character who best describes what they are like when they are low. Here were a few responses:

I’m like Kramer from Seinfeld…always bursting into the room with a crazy idea.
-Mary R.


I’m like Joffrey Baratheon from Game of Thrones.
-Kent L.


When I’m hypo, it’s definitely Edgar from Men in Black. When my son and I saw this scene in the cinema, I just whispered, “He’s a diabetic having a hypo,” and we spent the next 10 minutes trying to be quiet as we cried laughing.
-Ruth W.


I’m like Jar Jar Binks from Star Wars when I’m low.
-Jamie S.


Frankenstein 😈
-Jeff H.


I’m the Bill Murray character in What About Bob?
-Hanne B.


I’m like Miss Piggy from The Muppets – I start hitting, kicking, and screaming.
-Mandy B.
