I Am A Hypoglycemia Warrior
Are you ready for the kicker? Along with an eating disorder, sensitivities, and allergies, I have hypoglycemia. This means that although I may have moments when I struggle with eating or even prefer not to, I literally have to.
Are you familiar with hypo, as I call it? It’s the cousin of diabetes. Hypoglycemia is literally the exact opposite of diabetes. It means to have low blood sugar. Hyper means high, hypo means low.
Which amounts to me, and those like me, having to be super diligent about eating, the times I eat, and what types of food I eat. If I do avoid eating or eat too much sugar there are drastic consequences, like fainting, irritability, and some pretty gnarly other things.
