Josiah woke up at 5 AM this morning and I was DEAD! I had water with lemon and tried resting on the couch, but I realized I was starting to get the same reactions I've had before when going low-carb- rapid heartbeat, numbness in extremities, barely enough energy to move, and nausea if I think about food (which I really needed to eat!). I tried to just take a nap, but it got worse so I had some honey and it got better, but it didn't go away until i had some peanut butter. This is a really scary experience for me, it made me not want to eat any soup and pretty much halt the diet. I taxed my adrenals by not eating enough to keep my blood sugar from dropping too low. I knew better but I guess I thought I would be okay since I only had one GAPS intro meal yesterday. Guess not! So I am definitely backing off until I can get a feel for how much food I need to eat to prevent hypoglycemia, while still trying to heal. I may not be able to do the intro at this point and just head straight to the full GAPS diet. It is obvious I need some major healing.
