Sugar Highs

sweetness-598350_640Well, Mom has been without Metformin since Wednesday and WOW, what a difference!!

Yesterday, I said, Mom, we are out of a lot of things and I need to go shopping. I can let it go until tomorrow when Rod (my husband) is home, or you could go to Dogwood (day care) and I can do all the shopping at once, which would you like to do? LO AND BEHOLD SHE PICKED DOGWOOD, WILLINGLY!!!

Now, if you have read my previous posts of her refusing to get in the car for Dogwood, you know how exciting this was! Not only did she go, but she came out, got in the car and talked about it all the way home! She had been becoming less communicative, and that was one of my concerns.

It is like a fog lifted for her. When my husband got home, she asked hm about his day and communicated parts of her day to him! EUREKA! I am beginning to love sugar more every day.

Now don't get me wrong, she is not mainlining Snickers all day, but just the dropping of Metformin has seemed to make her brain work much more efficiently. Her new crossword magazine came yesterday, so when she got home I gave her the magazine. Now, normally, she will do a lot of what my son calls "cheating" by looking at the answers in the back. She completed two puzzles right away without turning to the back! Coincidence? I think not.

I did not mention my observations to my husband, but when we got ready for bed he said, "Is it my imagination, or does she seem peppier and more alert?"

I am not sure if it was the Metformin, but as far as I am concerned, whatever caused this sudden change can stick around.
