Sugar sweet and Low Down

Hi friends!

Boy it’s been a crazy year-that’s all I can say. Work has been difficult and I’m battling loneliness with all the covid restrictions. I go to work but half the time my clients hate me so it’s not a solution for loneliness.

Something else happened:

I got labs (blood work) back from my naturopath that treats my autoimmune disease. He said my antibodies for Hashimotos look real good-that I almost look in remission (of course that doesn’t change my hair loss-weirdly enough). But he added that my blood sugar and insulin are super high and my cortisol is in the opposite direction it should be.

He asked if I was stressed.

No shit Sherlock. I am always stressed.

So now I can’t eat potatoes, rice, corn, carrots, NO CHEETOS and basically no sugar or simple carbs (just to make 2020 more fun).

I haven’t had ANY of this since Wednesday. I almost fall asleep at 5pm.

Does this mean I’m withdrawing from sugar?? Asking for a friend that obviously can eat whatever he wants.
