Thanks so much for the lovely mums who responded to my story of feeling unwell and feeling under the pump and me not taking time to seek treatment or diagnosis for myself and go to the GP. I took you’re advice and went to the GP. There was a very good reason that I was feeling so very unwell and exhausted. I had a blood test and am still waiting for some of the results to come back and also am booked in for an X-ray and then after that possibly a ct or MRI. I got a phone call and text during the day to tell me it was important I got some Jelly beans or a soft drink into me ASAP, as my blood sugar was very low – 2.4! I had eaten only about an 1 hour before the test. No wonder I’ve been dragging myself around – I’ve almost been having hypos. I was a bit shaky the other day, but I just put it down to being busy etc and dismissed it. Thanks so much mums for giving me the friendly advice to get me on my bike to the Dr’s. Without you, who knows what would have happened- fainting etc. until I get proper diagnosis I’m eating sugar when I get that feeling, followed by a low GI food source. I work in a health related industry- you’d think I would know better than to ignore all of this. I think I just passed it off and pushed through. Lesson here: listen to your fellow mums on this amazing site and don’t ignore yourself and your health needs in order of a sense of obligation and guilt trips that others put you through. Your health is the most valuable thing and you need to be healthy to take care of not only yourself but your family. Thanks again mums xxx
