Issues with blood sugar
I think this needs to go under General Chatter. I'm sorry, I'm horrible at placing things.
It IS totally possible to be hypoglycemic but not be diabetic or anything, right? I know I need to go see a doctor, but I don't have medical insurance right now and it's not THAT big of a deal, but it IS getting annoying.
If I don't eat every 4-5 hours, I start getting quiet, I get shakey and anxious, etc. It happens a lot more often than it used to. I used to work 8hours with either one or no breaks in between, but lately if I don't have something right then and there I feel horrible. I've almost passed out once, I was literally seconds away before I jammed a donut into my mouth (before I started losing weight.)
It's just so inconvenient, I try to remember to pack snacks, but I only can remember half the time. And I do have a glucose monitor so I do keep track of my blood sugar, and I'm never super low or super high. So I just don't get it. I wonder if it will get better with the more weight I lose, or if it's just something unique to me I'll have to deal with.
Does anyone else have issues with their blood sugar, though? I know a while ago a few people here were telling me if I'm getting lows that I've got to be spiking, which I guess makes sense. I ate breakfast today at 9:30 and was fine until 12ish, but started feeling sick around 1 and didn't get to eat until 3something.
(I need a box that pops up and says- You already made this topic, doofus! I completely forgot. SORRY EVERYONE.)
