I'm taking a prescription weight loss medication (phenermine). I've taken it off and on for about a year. I'm getting used to it again after not taking it for a while and find that it does a great job of controlling my appetite right now - so much so that I forget to eat until my blood sugar drops and I'm a cranky, emotional mess.
That's what happened when Princess and I were at her psychiatrist appointment Wednesday (more on that soon - anyone have experience with Intuniv?) It took forever and then we had to go to the pharmacy. I hadn't eaten since the morning and cried in the kitchen while dinner was cooking when we got home.
There was more to it then just being hungry, of course. I was stressed about work and Princess's appointment and worried about a new medication prescription for my girl - who was a hyper mess from spending the afternoon at the psychiatrist's office.
I felt much better once I sat down and got some food in me.
Princess almost fell asleep at the dinner table. I got her to bed and she had me crying again as I was tucking her in.
First she said, "You're my angel, Mommy."
Then she said, "Don't cry if you don't have food. It's okay. We'll always have food here. Even if we don't have any with us when we're out, there's always lots of food here. Don't worry."
