Is hypoglycemia something to really worry about?
I was sick this week, really sick, so I went to the Dr. He said I have hypoglycemia (where your body doesn't hold sugar like it is supposed to). I'm supposed to make sure I have some kind of snack with me at all times and make sure I eat more smaller meals during the day. This is new to me. Is it something that I really need to worry about? Anyone else have advice for me?
I think this article might help..

You could ask my nutritionist at nutritionadvancement.com about recovering from hypoglycemia through the guidance of a nutritionist addressing food sensitivities. (This is different than food allergies.)

Are you worried about what happens after you die?I have two fears for when I die: I'll basically cease to exist, have no consciousness, etc. Or, that there is an afterlife and I'll learn the meaning of life, which could be devastating if I handled life wrong!
