So "Bollocks" to that useful bit of scientific information!
I make a number of little delightful canapés, usually containing huge amounts of faux caviar (the real stuff is far too expensive for the amount I eat.)
Sometimes I will just eat a small jar of the stuff on its own...it is very high in nutrients and calories.
I have a constant supply of freshly squeezed oranges in which I include all the pulp...the "fresh" stuff you buy, is not as delicious or as high in antioxidant/vitamin content.
I ask people around me (if I know them well enough) not to remark on my eating habits as this is a sure way of putting me off anything.
Frequently,I feel slightly hungry in the middle of the night, so I always have a sandwich or even a bar of chocolate in my bedside drawer.....
I often find myself cooking a "fry up" at 3 am in the morning....is this because my blood sugar levels have dropped or merely because like Lord Byron,I prefer not to eat in front of others? who knows.?...who cares? as long as I eat.
As a last resort, if none of the above works...I smoke a joint.
NOT this skunk shit that's around but weed grown by an old lady of Caribbean decent who lives near by.
She makes herself a nightly cup of tea with it as she says it helps her aching joints.
The effect it has on me is quite ridiculous. I giggle for about 10 minutes, till my abdominal muscles hurt.
And then.....I eat anything and everything in sight before falling into a deep sleep often waking up with a mouth full of cake...oh dear ,
IMAGINE the SIGHT!
There are plenty of psychiatrists and psychotherapists out there specialising in all sorts of treatments, but from my more than ample experience of them, I have found them all to be quite "off their heads "
A greater bevy of bonkersness I have yet to encounter.
But I guess what I am trying to say is, that this condition so often described as hopeless, is NOT.
It is simply a matter of finding a way of handling it...there IS a light at the end of the seemingly endless dark tunnel....it's just quite difficult to find the torch to lead you there.
Sorry if this little monologue hasn't been a barrel of laughs, but if it helps just one person it may just have been worth it.
Ta Ta for now,
