Forgot to Eat My Lunch!

This might sound silly to you, but I actually did forget to eat lunch:) I'm a diabetic, so missing snacks and meals are an absolute 'No, No.' I put a blueberry muffin and some Swiss cheese on a plate, then started to perk a cup of coffee. To avoid standing there, waiting for the coffee maker to finish brewing, I turned our computer on, then logged in to My Lot. As time went by, my head started getting sore, which is usually my first clue of 'low blood sugar.' Sure enough it was too low, because my lunch plate was still sitting on the kitchen counter, untouched!:) Am I losing my mind? I hope this is true! lol

I never forget to eat. LOL. I guess that's just me. But I hardly ever eat lunch. And I am also diabetic. I am on the pill currently. And if I eat a blueberry muffin I will be sleeping within the hour. That is too much for me to handle. But look, it happens. I sometimes wish I didn't have to eat all the time. I need to at least eat my breakfast and my dinner. Basically to take the pill. I am getting tired of taking the pill. I am no fan of taking pills. But it is something I have to do.

@inertia4 I am taking metformin in the morning and it works perfect, to keep my glucose level down!:)

@kobesbuddy I am on that also. Twice a day. Hopefully if I get my numbers under control I can eventually get off the pill.

@inertia4 My A1C was 5.4 so my P.A. took me off this medication. Then, without metformin it went back up to 6.4 so I'm taking it once again.

What do you hope is true? That you are losing your mind. lol I forget to eat all the time. I don't like to eat breakfast so that meal is normally skipped.I like lunch and dinner. though I forget that too.

@sharon6345 I take anti-depressants, because my mind constantly overworks, it doesn't want to shut down:( If I lost this mind, maybe I'd get one that works properly! lol

No, don't worry you are not losing your mind, but maybe you should use a timer?

@dodo19 I find that it can be easy if I eat something small, every two-three hours. That prevents it from ever getting too low.

Whenever that happens, can you just pop a candy in your mouth? Would that help at all? (I am curious since I don't know anything about this.)
