Distracted?

Tonight I’ve been thinking about Kerri’s post back in September about being hungry.

And I’m hungry tonight. I feel weird, like my blood sugar is low – but I’ve been steadily at around 110 mg/dl for the last hour or so.

Why don’t I eat something?

Well, I’m waiting for my family to pick me up (the truck is in the shop – except for the rust and other miscellaneous pieces that have fallen off lately). We might go out to eat.

So I don’t want to eat anything right now.

The thing is, I keep checking my blood sugar!! I mean like 5 or 6 times in the past hour!!! I feel like I’m low – but I’m not. And it’s very confusing to me!!

I’m sure this is not the first time that I’ve been hungry, and not low. Usually I’m hungry with a blood sugar in the 200’s or something!

That’s an exaggeration, but I’m just saying that I’m feeling particularly disconnected tonight. And it’s got me poking my fingers more than the crowd at the AARP National Sewing Convention.

I am glad that my blood sugar is good – but I’m a little distracted by the signals I’m getting. The signals that normally tell me I need to get something in me, or I’m in trouble.

Distracted. That’s a good word for it.
