Goodbye, My Sweet

Posts Tagged ‘depression

It was an ordinary Sunday morning. I got up and went to church to sing in the choir. (I’m an agnostic who likes to sing.) I had some water but needed a cough drop to moisten my throat so I pulled out a sugar-free cough drop sweetened with aspartame. Not bad.  I could forgive that. Then I went over to the coffee social after the service with the rest of the choir. Something I never do. Lo and behold they had my very favorite donuts. From there I slid further by buying some popcorn and chocolate when I had to stop for gas on the way home.

Man, does sugar mess with me. I slid straight down into depression. I feel lethargic and I can’t wait to get into bed. How many times to I have to learn this lesson?
