Well, what is your blood test?
That's not Low enough for you to be hungry.
"But I am."
That's also not High enough for you to be craving food.. You know, if you're body is trying to trick you into thinking your hungry when in actuality you are not hungry."
"It's higher than I thought I'd be based on how hungry I am, but it's not too bad. A small correction. But I'm still hungry"
There's no reason you should be. It's not lunch time yet.
"I didn't eat any breakfast and really just snacked some last night after a smaller dinner. All I've had this morning is coffee. Maybe I'm just hungry..."
No, your diabetes must be trying to trick you. Wait for lunch.
"I don't wanna. I'm so hungry."
No, you're not. Just drink more coffee.
"Sometimes, I might just be hungry. I am going to drink more coffee, but I'm going to eat something too."
Whatever. Eat what you'd like. Just make sure to correct for the 213, and dose for the carbs you eat.
"That's the plan, Stan."
Who the heck is Stan? Why don't you ever listen to me? Do you think I'm Stan, and that's why you ignore me...
Fine.... Ooooh! Pumpkin brownies!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!
This was the conversation I had with myself Tuesday morning while working. In the end, I won! Got to eat a snack about two hours before lunch. And that fought off the crazy inside-the-mind rambling that otherwise might have continued... :))
A D-Life is often about diabetes, but sometimes it's not. Sometimes, you're just hungry. Or thirsty. Or tired. Or whatever. Life can be just that - life. Shining through the diabetic clouds, for better or worse.
