Went to the doctors for a few health problems, and my blood test showed blood glucose was incredibly high and the cause was attributed to stress do to caregiveing. Doing a google search I found this to be quite common even for underweight caregivers. Keep a close eye on your blood suger levels.
When my youngest son was killed, my BS went up from the stress. I did not do anything more specific about it than lifestyle stuff. I knew I had to take better care of myself, and it came down, It is so important to do things that are good for us. There is self indulgence and there is self care. Self indulgence is not a good route to follow, as, in the long run, we end up harming ourselves. Self care is linked to self love, and we benefit.
Thank you for the heads up. I appreciate the information. I do find I tend to stress eat and I'm sure that is not good for my blood sugars either.
