This happened again today. I was up in my ceramics room trying to create feet on the bottoms of some nearly finished bowls when Rainie began alerting. I sensed she might be right because my balance and depth perception seemed a little bit off. Upon doing my blood sugar I discovered that I was slowly dropping, so proceeded to eat a snack, and went back to work. I wanted to push through and get this job done. The dryness of the clay was just right – not too hard and not too soft. But despite my intentions, she kept alerting! I felt fine. I had just eaten and needed to get my ceramics work done! That was until I cut right through the semi-dry bowl with a semi-sharp tool. She was right. I hadn’t sensed that my blood sugar had continued to drop and I wasn’t feeling how unstable I’d become.
As I tossed down my tools and took off my apron in pure frustration, Rainie flopped down on the floor with an exasperated sigh which loudly stated, “I TOLD YOU SO!”
