Peeking out of my hiding place
Oh, internets. I have been hit by a truck. Well, not a literal truck. A truck of...protein? Or sugar? I'm not really sure. Anyway! Turns out I am hypogylcemic. Turns out I am going to have to learn how to spell hypogylcemic. Hypoglycemic. There we go.
Feeling shaky, nauseous and exhausted basically all the time wasn't working for me anymore, so I called up Kaiser. Here is a reenactment of that historic phone call:
Me: "So, um, all those symptoms I just mentioned."
Doctor lazy: "Huh. You're hypoglycemic. Let's do some blood tests!"
Doctor Lazy: "..."
Me: "Is there anything else?"
Doctor Lazy: "Oh, um, eat a lot of protein and lots of small meals. Take care, now!"
Right. So. In the mean time, I am tired and feeling quite ill every few hours while I try to figure this thing out. Any tips? I'd love to hear them.
