I've been unable to write for most of the last month, and this is more or less why... crazy high bad blood sugar levels! I had been feeling like crap for several months but kept plugging along, but really feeling worse every week. I couldn't concentrate at all on anything, let alone be able to write. I couldn't even concentrate well enough to edit old stuff either!
I went to a health screening and found out that my blood sugar was 288! This is dangerously bad!
Anyway, for the last few weeks I've been on a serious low carb diet (Atkins/Bowden plans) and as of this morning my BS is down to 159! This is still not good... but MUCH better, and it's dropping a little every day. I'm not feeling great yet... but at least I've mostly stopped feeling like ten miles of bad road.
Starting to work on new stories a little bit now, as concentration levels permit, and hopefully I'll have the next chapter of "I'm going to make it all the way" done in another week or two, plus something else new.
