Hi, Thankyou no I’m fine, never meant to seek help lol, I know what to do, it’s just that I am not doing it, just need a slap :)
Slap given.
Do us both a favour and get yourself back on the wagon!

And don't forget this forum can be very useful to vent if you're struggling doing the right things too, we're pretty understanding around here. ;)

My symptom of high is what I call psycho hunger . I get it as a ‘punishment’ for eating too many carbs in a meal. It happens an hour after the meal and suddenly I could eat non food I am so desperate. I picture myself chomping into a door frame. It’s the worst feeling for me. I am also tired then and don’t feel like going for a walk but I must go to make the hunger go away. I haven’t had this state fir a while now , since I stuck to 3O g carbohydrates.
