Most of you know, our household had a rough couple of months dealing with a personal matter. And while all that is now thankfully resolved, something slipped by me unnoticed. In all that crisis, I had slowly taken on old, bad health habits, and it led to my blood glucose doing some unpleasant things.
When we are thrown out of our normal routine, it is easy to forget to take care of ourselves. We have all done this at one point or another. The question remains, how do we avoid this?

How do you handle crisis? When faced with a stressful situation, do you leap into action? Do you freeze? Do you have trouble sleeping? Do you begin forgetting self-care, like taking necessary medications or supplements? Does stress trigger you to eat more than normal, or do you turn away from food? You don’t have to have a chronic illness for these behaviors to cause problems, but it is certainly worse if you do.
