Hang in there! I think stress is one of the hardest things to deal with and don't even get me started on what it does to our sugars. It is great that you are so self-aware to know that it is stress making you want to eat and not actually being hungry. When I am fighting those feelings, I drink lots of water, chew gum and find something to occupy my brain, like keep writing on Spark People...someone, right now, needs your words of encouragement. I appreciate you sharing and I wish you luck. Stay strong.

But pat yourself on the back; you've lost weight!

I try to remember the saying, Nothing tastes as good as thin feels (although I haven't feel thin in a long time!)

This journey is truly one day at a time, and sometimes it's even one hour or minute at a time. While any disease is a bummer, I like to think that because of my diabetes, I'm more focused on my health and in much better health than most!

Hang in there!

Valerie

Ginette,

I know how you feel. Stress is bad enough on its own, but add diabetes to the mix and it can get really overwhelming. Try to find support somewhere, even if it's only here on SP. Being able to vent helps me. Hang in there!

Am I the only one in my life that thinks realistically what stress does to my life??? Am I the only one who cares? This is what I feel today and I am at a loss. I don't know what to do anymore with things, with life.
Life is like a bowl of cherries sometimes you are swimming in the pit always trying to get to the juicy center, others you are swimming through the pool of juicy and living high and happy. Sigh. Not in the juice today. In a bad situation and I don't know what to do. I want to eat...so far I've resisted...although I will admit the only reason was my sugar was 229...but if I did it was going to be popcorn.
