the food here

There are very few upsides to hospitalization but one of my favorites is that I get to ignore my hypoglycemia and eat like a normal person.

My favorite hospital meal has been potatoes au gratin with veggies and a roll and a large cranberry juice and a frozen yogurt. Other than the veggies this meal is practically all carbs and sugar. This plunges my blood sugar until I'm unable to function like an alert person. If I were at a party I'd be leaning on a couch trying to stay awake. If I were at work I'd be unable to do my job and find some excuse to sneak away somewhere to nap. My sugar crashes don't threaten my health (that I know of) but they do render me useless and unable to do anything other than sleep or struggle like hell to stay awake. It's just not something I can normally do.

But in the hospital you're not really supposed to do anything other than lay around. So I can eat this wonderful carb and sugar feast and then simply pass out in bed for an hour or so. I'm going to enjoy these forbidden food combinations while I can. And since I'm supposed to be putting on weight while I'm here, they'll give me pretty much whatever I want as long as it's on the menu. I have been at least eating healthy hypoglycemic friendly protein high breakfasts, usually eggs. But I think I'm going to live dangerously tomorrow and have pancakes instead. Yeah...I know...I'm a wild woman!
