Or, as my brother says, some kids just have to learn the hard way. But, will I ever learn? I have hypoglycemia. Not all that difficult to manage (really?), but I seem to keep running into problems. I know I shouldn’t eat simple carbs or sugar, but, one symptom of this condition is that it makes you constantly hungry and, of course, you crave sweets. I generally do pretty well. However, yesterday I needed to run some errands, and there were all those displays of lovely Easter candy sitting out. I just had to have some. Sugar usually makes me get hot, sweaty, and shaky, but I didn’t feel any of that yesterday. I was sitting with the computer, working on Ancestry.com, and suddenly, I couldn’t remember who was who’s father, brother, or son. They were all sort of running together and I was so confused. Uh-oh. Confusion generally equals low blood sugar. Thank goodness I could remember that. Grabbed my tester which, thankfully, was right near me, and my reading was 29. It should be between 70-100. 29 is about a step away from seizures and coma. Remedy? Sugar! I ate a few pieces of candy, got the sugar up, had some protein to sort of even things out, and then threw the remaining candy in the trash. GEEZ! I know better. I really know better. Dr. Pavlov was able to train dogs with conditioned response. Can someone please train me not to do stupid things like this? OY! So, today I’m back on the protein train. Easter eggs for breakfast, greek yogurt with strawberries for lunch. Now I’m headed upstairs for some quilting with no food. Why do we always want what we can’t have?
