How to treat a low?
So I am writing this at 2 AM on Friday morning since I am awake due to a low. Of course I went to bed high and I corrected, which made me low, and so here I sit. I want to go to pantry and rage eat. I mean I can and would right now consume 5,000 calories if I could and not gain weight or feel ill in the morning. Of course if I consumed what I want I would need to get in the car (not a good idea) and find a pancake place to let it rip. Instead I am having my two favorite foods, a tablespoon of peanut butter and half of a honey crisp apple.
I have no idea if the reader has ever had a combination like this but when it comes to 5,000 calories this combination might get me to 2,000 calories if I ate what I want right now. I love these honey crisp apples. They are a very sweet firm apple that just tastes wonderful. Toss in some Peter Pan peanut butter (yes Peter Pan is preferred) and wow talk about a nice way to chase a low away.
Of course I use other ways now, apple juice is my usual go to low treatment. Recently I have started to use skittles, but neither are my preferred treatments. I have grown to dislike apple juice, the very taste of it reminds me of cough medicine, and I do not yet fully trust skittles. Well to be honest I don’t trust myself around skittles. Did I mention the 5,000 calories?
In my younger days I would consume a jar of peanut butter to treat a low. Yes I admit it was not a very effective treatment, but you might imagine me with my head inside the jar licking the sides to get every last pinch of peanut butter out. It was such that when I got started, it was difficult to stop, so long as it was…
