I Cook and Then I Chill -- Ellie's Journal
Quick history: lifelong believer in low carbing, though I didn't practice what I preached; history of binge eating and bulimia. Went seriously Primal in October; joined Overeaters Anonymous in March. Got married in June (yay!) but strayed back to crappy eating afterwards and relapsed on binge/purge a couple weeks ago.
THEN! TWIST! Two days ago I ended up in the ER with high blood sugar, vision problems, and dehydration. I got sent home with a glucose monitor, insulin, and instructions to get in touch with a diabetes educator on Monday morning. I don't have an official diagnosis of anything yet.
So this is a journal for my re-commitment to Primal eating and my new commitment to prioritizing my health, figuring out what's wrong, and getting it under control!
