Well ten minutes after I posted last night on Wednesdays check in, we had a big hail storm. Lots of lightning, but fortunately the hail didn't damage windows or Bob's cactus. A few holes in tomato and bean leaves but that's ok. Since we were expecting worse stuff in the morning and this afternoon, Bob moved all his plants sitting on the back landing and under some homemade stands, into the barn at 2 a.m.
This morning storms were just bad thunderboomers, but while this afternoon storms skimmed us, 3.8 inch hail fell in the town my studio is (I'll be checking it tomorrow) and I think Paul up in Severn MD may have had a tornado get close to him.
No serious injuries in MD but a child was killed in Virginia from a falling tree.
Bob one key is getting a list of the foods with the hidden sugars (like the ketchup Loyd mentioned) and even milk (try unsweetened almond milk), I don't have it myself but my nieces husband was recently diagnosed as well. I tried the almond milk myself btw and it was ok. Did it to up my magnesium till I found out the nuts had more then the 'milk.'
Get your gp to recommend a nutritionist who understands all your other issues and work with him or her on figuring out what, when and how much. Once you get on a regular regime, I think the roller coaster will level out for you.
Don't know what they feel now-a-days about 'sugarless' stuff, (something to check with gp and/or nutritionist) but one thing I do sometimes in the evening, to signal my brain to stop wanting to eat, even when I had a full meal, is to chew a cinnamon sugarless gum, which seems to switch the 'mouth hunger' off.
Wow another exciting thing to add to your list!
BTW Bob just came in from taking all the plants out of the barn to go back on our sliding door steps. He made a big deal out of telling me there were 114 plants (these only the plants he didn't want damaged--he's got at least a thou others). Fishing for sympathy...
And yes, I did offer to help him.
