Boiling Hot

Androscoggin River

When we left Maine on Saturday, we were all pretty tired. I felt as though I should offer to drive, but just knew that with the sun setting and the country roads there was no way this was a safe option. Instead I chose to bundle up and sleep. I woke up about an hour later when we stopped for dinner. I felt low and checked Dex which said 82, but with a southeast arrow. I assumed I was around 60, but it was really effing hot in the truck. I found my meter, and I was 48. I grabbed a Level and an Airhead and polished them both off REALLY quickly. By the time I finished them, Dex had double down arrows and me under 55. I touched my forehead and realized that my face was covered in sweat (this is really awesome, yes?). I had on one of my favorite sweatshirts and wiped my entire face with my arm. I felt so dirty. We were still in the mountains and it was cold, but I was boiling. I just needed to eat. We walked (a short distance) to the restaurant, where I had to ask my parents to slow down because taking steps was something I needed to focus on. My parents kept holding the doors open for me and letting me go first, but navigating where to walk was too intimidating. Stepping to the side to let them go first also seemed difficult. We found seats at the bar where holding my head up seemed difficult. We scoured the menu so we could order immediately. As I was looking at the menu, a waiter walked by with a brownie sundae and I knew I’d be getting one of those as well. I ordered spaghetti, and ate more of the chicken knowing that a brownie sundae would soon be mine. After a while, I started to feel human, and didn’t feel low by the time our dinner came. However, all I wanted to do was eat and eat and eat. I did bolus, but I was pretty damn scared to do it. By the time we were done with dinner, I was in the 150s, and ready to drive the rest of the way home.

    I “liked” this, but only as a way to let you know I read it, and I “get” it.

I'd love to hear what you think about my blog thoughts!
