im in the habit of having a treat twice a week
today it went a bit far
and the sugar has made me feel ill
both mentally and physically

anxiety and physical pain
inflammation
kind of drunk on the sugar
( not alcohol which I cant have )

I suppose its like hyperactivity in children
when you get alot of sugar and caffeine in your system

The best policy? Is to completely ill avoid sugar. Aside that sugar is in my med which I have to take, i;d been having far too much sugary foods, causing me not only weight gain, also infections of boils and things.

I have cut right back and down on chcolate packs, of choclate pieces, and only add a small amount of sweetner in my fruit tea, if needed, and green tea hot drink, if required.

I hope you recover and feel well soon.

thankyou, I dont find I have to give it up altoghere
my arthritis was settling down nicely
when I was being careful
then I had this enormous treat
and things have flared up
which yes could be an infection
and it also made me feel drained
I think it takes out your nutrients
like alchohol can sometimes do
when people feel hung over
