It never ceases to amaze me about how stupid I really am!
I know that Sugar
is my enemy and will bring me down fast.I know to only indulge in the slightest amount once or twice here and there throughout the year but stupid me started feeling really good compared to the last few months and decided those cookies on the table, the delicious assorted european ones which were dipped in belgium chocolates and mocha, would be OK this time.
I was even fine for a few days and then the last day there were holiday m&m's that I was going to use to make cookies for my children. I thought that a few m&m's would not be a big deal. So I grabbed a small handful and sat down for a movie. My husband (he is back for now) saw me eating them and tried to grab them out of my hand. Me, knowing this would be the absolute last sweets I had, was not about to let them go without a fight. He managed to grab a few out of my grip and I quickly popped the rest in my mouth and chewed them up really quick.
I am not a big eater, (although I can be if my Sugar
is really low) I don't eat large amounts of cookies in one sitting. Usually after a few I am done. So I guess it was the few here and there coupled with the small amount of m&m's over a period of several days that added up.
I went to the bathroom to take a bath because I was freezing (hypothyroidism) and noticed when I looked at my hand that I was tanning again in-between one of my fingers. I also noticed I was getting this yellowish brown tan around my eyes.
I think it was yesterday I started getting some sort of adrenal crisis, I had to use the restroom every time I ate or drank. I was dizzy, very intolerant of noise and extremely nauseous.
Anyhow, I of course allowed myself no more sweets when I saw the tanning and as of today the tan between my fingers is pretty much gone. I still see it around the eyes. Although I think it is fading.
Who does this? Tans and then the tan fades after taking away the stressor that caused the tanning in the first place? It's so weird.
