Depressed. :(

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

So I got blood work back today. Apparently I'm anemic, and my a1c was high, which means now they're gonna send me for a 1 hour glucose test, which is like the most awful thing ever. I've done some reading and research on managing them, and it's pretty straightforward and basically normal healthy eating. Unfortunately, it's really hard to avoid junk in this house. And I've gotten used to it, so I'm upset today. I don't want to do this all over again. Which is stupid. I WANT to be sick? No, of course not. I just don't want to deal with this. :( There's SO much going on.I don't want to fight with avoiding the treats in the house. It's just one more thing thing to worry about.
I feel like a kid stamping their feet going "I don't wanna!"

    emoticon Both conditions are not uncommon with pregnancy. No wonder you are feeling depressed and tired. I hope that the levels improve soon.

    Hi Jacque, poor you! Oh, junk food! It is high in sugar, salt and bad fats, and low in nutrients, but is engineered to be virtually irresistible and to keep us coming back for more! It is also cheap and plentiful, requires no prep and is EVERYWHERE! I hope you can find a way to say "no" to the constant temptation, for the sake of your health. I know you have lots on the go. It will not be easy, but you can do this. It only takes a few weeks, and the junk will suddenly taste too sweet, too fatty and too salty. After about 21 days, in my experience, you won't even want it any more. Jacque, I ordered a praline (my old favourite from childhood) three weeks ago at our neighbourhood coffee shop, and after two bites I had to give the rest to my son. I can't eat that stuff any more. Anyway, I know you can do it too!

    My a1c was high too. I watch my carbs and cut out pop all together. Helped me lower mine. Just stay calm you can get it back down.

    You can bring your A1C down by watching the carbs you eat and also by exercising more. Try eating spinach to boost your anemia.

    I know how you feel. Take it easy and keep in mind how good you'll feel to leave the snacks behind.
