Get ticked off or find some humor.
Yesterday I lost about 4 hours of my life to a state agency. Waiting around over an hour then having to leave for a doctor's appointment only to come back and start waiting again from square one. Foolish me thinking I could attend to business before my appointment.
At the Doctor's appointment a found out I am back to my 30 pounds lost, my A1c is great. Cholesterol good. Lost of good stuff, but I found out that there is a bill I need to pay. :( Not too bad, just a little bill.
Back to the state agency again... this time things were moving faster and I wasn't as stressed, but was hungry as Dunkin Donuts, pizza and lunch deliveries were coming in the door. I saw why older women should not wear miniskirts.
Gravity is not kind even if you have a good body.
After all that time wasted waiting... but it was my duty to take care of these matters as I am his Plenary Guardian, the matter has been addressed.
Being stressed and hungry... I did not want a cigarette.(as I would have in the past.) But I did need to eat, as my BG was dropping. I pulled into the fast food joint and ordered a small burger without the mayo. I was still craving some munches and I gave into venturing into the snack food aisle. Got the crunchy bag and then went home to eat away my stress.
DID THAT WORK??? Heck no! All that salt! All that crunching... I would have been better off with celery.
Yes It was may choice, I was driven by desire, but I can change what I desire. Cigarettes to crunchy junk food to celery. It cam be done and with practice it will be done.
When the mail was delivered at 4:15, there were not one but SEVEN letters from that state agency telling me every was okay. (Was the letter I has received the day before an error???? ) Also there was a check from the Doctor's office???
I was emotionally drained. Good thing I had a healthy dinner planned.
