Food has played a major part in getting my blood sugars under control.
Sure the meds help, but basically, if I eat well, I don't need to
correct with insulin and the Metformin keeps me nicely in range when I
do eat. So- what do you do when you just DON'T want to eat?
I've been rather run down recently- partially the heat, partially not
enough sleep, but I just don't want to eat. I don't know if you all
remember but I had a spell there where I could not eat meat, and just as
I was getting back into it, I had another incident today and am
completely put off meat again. So I'm kinda stuck. I honestly do NOT
want to eat anything. I thought I could still munch on veggies and soy stuff, but I have no desire to eat anything. I tried to have salad for dinner tonight and that just was NOT going to happen.
I have no problem consuming liquids, so I'm
staying hydrated, but at some point I'm sure the lack of nutrition is
going to bite me in the a$$. I don't feel hungry. I don't crave
anything and the idea of chewing anything is just beyond me. I'm
starting to concern myself a little since this has happened more than a
few times now. It seems to go on a for a few weeks and then I gradually work my way back into eating normally and then BOOM! it hits me again. I have an appointment with my Endo and CDE so I plan on bringing this up. The only slightly positive thing is that I do tend to lose a nice amount of weight with each "bout", and thus far, I have not gained it back.
When I was in high school, I used to drink Carnation Instant Breakfast-
it was a powder you mixed with milk to get nutrients if you skipped
breakfast. I'm wondering if that still exists or if anyone has any
ideas what I could have if I don't want to eat something. I've never
attempted a smoothie so I have no idea what to do.
I'm just feeling kinda "blah" right now. I'm kinda annoyed with myself that I can't get out of my own head. I don't even really know where I am going with this. Just rambling I guess. Oh- and just another little piece of randomness: did you know that Nicole Kidman is afraid of butterflies? Until yesterday I thought I was the only one on earth afraid of butterflies, so that made me feel slightly better. :)
