What is it about sugar that eases stress?
Since we started the house situation, all I want some days is something sweet. For years I haven't been able to eat sugar or starch, but after drinking white oak bark tea, sugar doesn't seem to bother me quite as much.
I can say that but at the Super Bowl party on Sunday I ate every dessert there: rum cake, blackberry cobbler and ice cream, fruit something or other, a cinnamon something, chocolate cake. Of course, I didn't go to sleep until 5:00 the next morning either! All night I wrote a new book titled, "When Children Break Their Parent's Hearts."
The past few days have been more stressful than usual. So far I've had a cheese Danish at Starbuck's, a soy ice cream carob bar and a miniature Hershey (from the bowl we have out for the house lookers.) I don't know if I'll sleep tonight or not.
I wish I would go pray instead of eating sugar. I pray all the time but right now nothing seems to be able to take the place of sugar.
I remember once long ago when I could eat sugar and was in stress. Instead of wanting to eat, I couldn't eat and lost so much weight. Why can't I do that now? Why is sugar my answer? Rhetorical question, but if you have the answer, please let me know.
