This one was clear cut for me. It was my mother's birthday Friday and we took her out for dinner on Sunday cause my sister took her out for dinner on her Birthday. Saturday I felt bad possibly from Friday nights practice with the band. My mother offered me a piece of her Birthday cake and I really didn't want it but felt that she wanted me to share her birthday cake with her. This time I really learnt how sugar affects Fibromyalgia pain. Within hours I had low grade migraine and when I went to bed I couldn't sleep because of it, so finally took the Relpax medication and it relieved the pain in my head. The next morning woke up and was emotional and crying because I hadn't even gotten out of my bed and my whole body was in pain. This was clear cut sugar induced. No more cake for me. This is serious business and I refuse to suffer like this because of appeasing someone else. I will make this clear to my mother that I cannot eat any sugar product no matter what the occassion. Now I have another day to go through to clear this out of my body. What a price to pay for eating something so small. This is how we learn.
