Derailed by stress
Saturday, April 09, 2011
Runaway appetite/crazy blood sugars/terrible blood pressure due to stress--husband had more (rare and exotic this time) reconstructive surgery about a month ago followed by wound problems including infection. So, I've been playing wound care nurse at home in addition to my usual respiratory chores at work, including multiple doctor visits to avoid him ending up back in the hospital (so far so good) but eating like I've gone totally insane.
Paused long enough to take a deep breath and re-evaluate program; going to 30-40-30 diet (Zone with extra snack) to try again to stabilize sugars and MAKING myself remember to take my blood pressure med--it works by keeping the stress hormones from working so sounds like just what I need.
This too shall pass.
