Needin A Little Prayer


I haven’t been to the doctors for a general check up in a long time. I’m like a guy in that sense…I hate to make doctors appointments for myself and usually wait whatever ailment I might have out until it naturally takes care of itself. WELL, this one is showing me a strength stronger than my own bodily defenses can battle. As well as having a mighty, laryngitis type cough consistently for almost two months now (ya, ya, it takes me a while to act:), I had a strange, almost fainting- type spell last night. I suddenly began sweating, my blood sugar levels felt like zero and though I’ve been trying to stop my recent late night snacking, it was all I could do to stop myself from completely inhaling everything in the fridge! This is not the first time lately I’ve felt this way though definitely the worst. So, I figure that A) I’m hypoglycemic, B) Diabetic (oh I hope not!), C) Pregnant again (ahhhhhhh!) or D) Messed up.

All this to say, my mother-in-law is coming this afternoon to look after Micah and I am going to darken the doors of a local doctor’s office. I’d love to know people are praying that every thing’s alright! Also, any further thoughts on what my ailment(s) might be?!

    I used to get spells like that a lot and I found it got better when I increased the protein and fat in my diet. I would make sure to eat peanut butter or something with a lot of protein in it. Eating too many carbs did it to me. I guess you could say I’m hypo or hyper glycemic. I’m not sure which one. Good thing you are getting it checked out. Thinking of you!

    Susanna, I am glad you have gotten this checked out. I do hope that just a bit of a diet adjustment will take care of it. Thank God it isn’t anything BIG!! Hope to see you guys soon!
