DSHONEYC rightly and ever so kindly stated that blame is just a disguise for excuses.
It is an attempt to justify the shift of responsibility. Not my job, Not my fault.
Even with a head that feels like it is about to explode... choices are all mine.
My choice yesterday to curl up in a ball and sleep. My body was telling me I need to heal.
My choice comforting carbs. Well that didn't go so well. My body already stressed from coming off a medication was dealing with high blood glucose levels ... so why did I add to that. My body rebelled with painful inflammation. I've heard high glucose levels being described as shards of glass running though my veins or taking sandpaper to the lining of the veins. I can fully understand this as large red and angry rashes develop when my sugar level is too high. Also my feet react with a tingle like they are falling asleep.
Okay so I added to my own problems and have made myself worse. When feeling ill my brain does not function too well, so being prepared will help me through the challenging time.
* Make list of readily available HEALTHY comfort food.
(to avoid spikes and keep me from making it worse)
* Make list of OTC medication that I am able to take.
(Reading that fine print when you cannot focus is challenging and not too wise.)
My head is spinning so I'm off.
