Last night I dreamed I was at an Italian deli/lunch counter. I passed up the double-decker focaccia sandwiches, wistfully because they looked wonderful but I knew they were too-carby.. I was going to order a chicken tomato dish (which seemed diabetic-safe). And then I spied sauteed beet greens . . . and that made me very happy in my dream.
The first year after dx I dreamed alot about eating: especially indulging (cookies, cake, toast). Some times I would awake afraid: had I really eaten that? Those dreams made me anxious & bitter about living with diabetes, but they have definitely tapered off.
Last night's dream was funny because I was so consciously approaching the deli as a compliant diabetic, trying to make the best choices. I chuckle that I have reached the point that I perceive the greens as a special treat!
