Today I learned that I’m becoming more and more like my mother.
This isn’t always a bad thing.
It was today, though.
She has problems with low blood sugar, and sometimes if she doesn’t eat often enough, she can shake and become dizzy. I even saw her pass out from it once.
Today I guess I didn’t eat enough. I had a bowl of cereal and some blueberries for breakfast. All I had for lunch was a salad. (Just vegetables, croutons, and lowfat vinaigrette. No protein.)
By late afternoon, I knew something was wrong. I was confused and disoriented, and I’d started feeling agitated and shaky. A couple times when I tried walking across the room, I nearly tripped over my own feet.
I had plans to go somewhere tonight, but here I am at home instead. I just ate dinner and I’m going to go to bed early. I still feel like my brain isn’t quite all there.
I guess this means I need to start doing what Mom does. She has to eat something every three hours. And it has to have protein, otherwise the symptoms happen anyway.
I drank a lot today (water and zero-calorie stuff), so I know I can’t be dehydrated. I’ve been peeing so much I could melt a glacier.
Anyway, I’m going to go lay down pretty soon.
I thought it’d be better for me to ramble on and on about this over here at Jantics instead of on the Jannaverse or Jantrails.
I forget why, but it probably has something to do with the fact that nobody ever reads what I write over here.
