And this hardship that Boening has to endure was exactly why, one afternoon in December 2017, she found herself in such a life-threatening situation. On that particular day, the Texan was heading west on Interstate 40 when suddenly disaster struck.
The former police officer’s blood sugar had dropped to a dangerously low level. You see, Boening suffers from diabetes. And as a result of this lifelong condition, Boening’s body is unable to properly break down glucose to make energy, potentially putting her life at risk.
So, Boening had to act fast. And it would seem that luck was on her side – at the next exit, just off the interstate, there was a Burger King. Thankfully, she made it to the restaurant’s drive-thru in one piece. But by that point she was beginning to feel faint.
