Free soda

April 7th, 2006 at 09:12 pm

One of our clients brought in 4 packs of soda. It was a gift to the ladies who had helped him. They never took it home and it's been three days.

So today, I again got the shakes (our 10:30 clients came at 10:00 and I didn't get a snack until 11:30, I can't go that long without eating). I tried eating some sunflower seeds and chocolate chips, but it just wasn't helping.

One of my coworkers saw my hands shake and asked if it was a no caffiene thing or a sugar thing. I said probably sugar. The soda was hers and she said "that's there for everyone, go get one".

Clearly, I need to take some more food to work. My snacks work fine IF I can eat at 10:00, but if it gets pushed back too far, I can't get things in balance.

I have been tested for diabetes 3x (2x while pg and once before) and test as being fine, so I don't think it's diabetes, I think it's just a tiny stomach combined with a decent metabolism and so I blow through my food too fast.

I came home and snarfed some turkey and an eggroll. Then I had a glass of milk and some candy. Then, dh came home and I took a nap. Now, I feel great. Wide awake, but great!

My boss finally admitted they needed to hire another person. We've all been under stress to turn stuff out. I have a will that's been on my desk for a month. There's just more stuff than we can do in the time we have and stuff isn't getting done. AND they just took on a HUGE new client. So yeah, we need at least one more person. I think they should also look into figuring out a way to get me set up to work from home since I'm usually up at least an hour or two after everyone has gone to bed. If I had access to the stuff from work, I could easily get some stuff done and get closer to being caught up.

    Have you had your thyroid checked? And how about hypogylcemia? Check into those too.

    Almonds are good for energy, too. And don't forget your protein! How about keeping some string cheese in your desk? I get the shakes as well, and I'm also not diabetic. I find that a little cheese or a hardboiled egg is helpful, as well as eating some nuts. Another idea: GORP. You know...Good Old Raisins and Peanuts. (I'd throw some M&Ms in there to make it interesting.)

    You could also stick a jar of peanut butter and some crackers in your desk. If the sugar is mixed in with protien it should take your body longer to metabolize it, so it will last longer. . .

    great ideas.. my friend has panic attacks and shakes and she said her dr. said not to take food, when she is upset...or shaking from stress or dips in her sugar, even though she is not diabetic or even borderline. she drinks a hot beverage... try it.. it helps her.. maybe a hot soup, coffee, or tea in a thermos can be taken to your work. god bless....
    maybe the smell and steam helps too, from the hot beverage.. aromatherapy....
