I was really bad and hadn’t eaten for a couple of days. Literally, I hadn’t eaten anything at all and had scheduled when I could drink water. And water was all that I was drinking. I hadn’t even been drinking a bottle a day, for those days. I was trying to cut water weight for the shoot I had yesterday. I was supposed to have one today, but woke up and couldn’t move. I couldn’t even roll over. I didn’t know what was going on.
Somehow, even the smallest movements took the greatest effort and energy. It didn’t make sense. It took me an hour to be able to sit up. With a cane, it took me just as long to walk five feet across the hall to the bathroom. Even then, I had to sit and was winded for twenty minutes. When I got back to my bed, I was so scared. I didn’t know what was going on. I laid there and didn’t even have the energy to cry. I just couldn’t move, even to roll over to call anyone on my phone. I decided to try to eat. I made myself a lot of soup and some quinoa. It was great and it felt good to eat, but I still had a problem with energy. I laid back down and after a while, I could feel the energy going away. I started to cry a little, I was getting really scared because my body started to feel cold and heavy. It felt like something was pulling me down by all the cells in my body and I was just getting too heavy. I started to feel overwhelmingly drained and something came over me. I was dying. The life was leaving my body. My brain started to feel like it was shutting down, section by section. And then something told me to try candy. BOOM!
After having these candies, I laid down. an hour later, I felt better! I can only imagine that my sugar levels had dropped and I was severely dehydrated. I probably didn’t need to eat the entire pack. But, they were really good! They were incredibly sweet, but the taste wasn’t too overwhelming. Just a bit more than I would have wanted. But, I love sesame seeds and I can’t think of one of those candies that I didn’t like.
If you have to watch your sugar intake, because sugar irritates your IBS, don’t try these. Or if nuts and seeds cause you to flare. Each tiny bar is five grams of sugar, so be careful. It is Vegan and Vegetarian friendly, otherwise.
