I woke up this morning with a huge headache, dry mouth and upset stomach. All the symptoms of a night of heavy alcohol consumption. Problem is, we didn’t drink any alcohol at all last night, not even a glass of wine with dinner.
What I woke up with was a sugar hangover. Because my A1c was just below the diabetic level a few years ago, I’ve almost completely cut out sugar and drastically reduced carbs in my diet. I’ve brought my A1c level down to just a skitch above normal. This gives me the leeway to indulge when relatives bring some incredible home made cheesecake and pumpkin, pecan and lemon meringue pies to Thanksgiving dinner.
Except that this leaves me with a sugar hangover the next day.
Well, at least I don’t make a fool of myself when I’m on a sugar high.
