I just ate some old lettuce with a half can of cold green beans on it, stripped off some of the leftover chicken making sure for no skin and more of the leftover mini-peppers and a little bit of salad dressing for breakfast. If I don't eat I'll get sicker. Lately I wish I could just stop eating and save the money and trouble.
There's my Hillybilly Housewife, don't die of diabetes meal. Her food would jack my diabetes into death levels. I know she wants the poor just to eat but it is carbohydrate land to the max.
Food pantry food SUCKS for diabetics. My sugar was 158 this morning which is high and bad for me since I am usually at 108-125. The doctor said if I hit an occasional high one that is okay, so it will happen but it is frustrating this week. I knew it was creeping up.
I am doing what I can. I figured out why my blood sugar was so high, I should have peeled my chicken, and had white bread at a lunch at a disability seminar, and drinking too much V8 juice [from the food pantry] was not good. It seems they want the poor to eat nothing but spaghetti too and even spaghetti mixed with vegetables as my body really wanted cottage cheese and salad wasn't going to cut it.
If I get too hungry my sugars go up. Why does food deprivation make my sugars higher? It seems counter productive. Why do I have to sleep 10 hours a night for good blood sugars? It's like I have to be complete passed out for 10 hours. Why does stress jack them up? Why does DOING STUFF, ie, walking around, doing some housework, going to events and being busy make them higher? That one is weird to me. Like the body is saying, you have made me do too much, I am checking out of here, but I don't want to spend my entire life in bed.
