I had to take my best friend to the doctor yesterday for her flu, which is not the flu per se, but is a virus of some sort anyway. Cell phones aren't allowed in the doctor's office, so I stepped outside to check my messages, and the recruiter had called to tell me I got the job! We've been playing phone tag ever since to get all the details sorted out, but at least I know now!
I did manage to have a hypoglycemic thing happen to me yesterday - you'd think that after nearly six years on the BTD that I'd've learned how to avoid them altogether! When I took my best friend to the doctor's office, I was sipping on an iced soy chai tea latte from Starbucks. Heaven in a cup, and I've been treating myself to them too often lately! Generally, they are a between meal thing, and I try to eat some protein within a couple of hours of having one, but yesterday it became a meal, and then I was stuck at the doctor's for 2 hours and then I had to run to acting class. On the way to class I grabbed some sushi thinking that the protein would help, but I think the rice put me over the edge. I felt loopy and shaky and not at all grounded in class, and it showed in my work. I drank my water in class, and ate all the pumpkin seeds I brought for a snack, and ate the rest of my goat cheese brie (yum!) once I got home. It's so rare for me to get shaky at all anymore - I can go for hours and hours now without eating, and have no problems (other than a growling tummy). I think I just went too long without protein and had too much sugar.
This morning my best friend called me at 7am (after I fell asleep at 5am, of course) and she'd had a reaction to the medication they gave her and needed some help, so I went downstairs to do what I could to help her through it and make her more comfortable. Fell asleep on her bed (she couldn't get up from the floor at that point!) and slept until about 10. So four hours of sleep, and I made myself get up and I'm staying up today and will get to bed early tonight. I think I'll just have to wear myself out today to make sure I'll sleep tonight. A walk is in order even though the ankle is still a little achy on the lateral side.
