My Sweet Crush, pt 5 – Know Thine Enemy

Read My Sweet Crush, pt. 4 – Above Temptation

When did it happen? How did it happen so quickly? The giggly high of new love, the sighs and lows, the curiosity lending itself to exploring uncharted territory. Yep, the signs were all there. I was a loving Carbs, one processed grain at a time. Oh, I tried to act cool but carbs was cooler, reeling me in like the proverbial donkey with the carrot on a string. In my case, though, it was a chip on a string – but I digress. What was worse was that I was willing to be led.

Let’s face it – this was nothing like my disastrous horror show with Sugar, I told myself. Sugar had thought only of its sweet self, never taking my feelings into account. I became horribly ill while with Sugar. This was so different. Carbohydrate was so attentive and I never lacked for anything. Sure I had highs and lows but that’s typical of new love with emotions running high – right? That little knee pain that I was beginning to feel was just because we had been spending so much time together and I had been neglecting myself. Sure, I felt a bit befuddled but they always say that new love makes you giddy. The racing pulse, headaches and yeast overgrowth that produced ringworm and rashes – I assured myself that they were from personal neglect. How right was I?

One day, while waiting for Carbs’ first delivery of the day (we had a routine, by then), I was struck by the fact that I was drumming my fingers and tapping things, very much the way that I did when Sugar was in my life. Disgusted by the memory and determined to vanquish the ghost once and for all, I pulled a napkin towards me and began to list the differences between my new beau and my ex, fully expecting that sweet devil to come up sadly lacking.

Twenty-five minutes and several napkins later, I was flummoxed, floored, flabbergasted, even! The two were close cousins! They were too alike for it to be coincidental. They had to be very closely related. Ah but they weren’t cousins – no; they were brothers.

I was stunned! No wonder I had felt so comfortable with this comforting cretin; the playbook was the same as the sly sweet-talker’s! I had been duped.

Did I cause a scene? No. The fault was mine. I had not taken the time to know Carbs before bringing my heart into play. I knew that I would not beg or plead because going back to who I was with Sugar was out of the question. Did I cry? No but I did, as they say, get Carbs “real good.” I exposed that callous conniver to the public and threw the sweet sloth in, for good measure. No more will they lead anyone astray and tag-team to wreak havoc. No more!

I’ve done my part. What will you do?


About LawsOnHealth Wellness

My organs were shutting down, the specialist said. I didn’t hear much of anything after that. The words ‘shutting down’ meant imminent death, in my mind, fraught with horrible pain. I envisioned myself unable to control my faculties and being left in a hospice to moan my last few days. It did not help that the doctors did not know what was wrong with me. On top of all the drugs they prescribed which made me more ill, they did an EMG (such long needles!) MRI's, an endoscopy, and CT scans. Major surgery came next but was later determined to have been unnecessary, after all. That day, hearing those words from the specialist brought me to the river's edge; I would take no more drugs! Instead, I would take my health in hand. Now, I am well, and a trained naturopathic physician, holistic health coach, and colon hydro-therapist. All around us, there is a renewed surge in alternative health and I am excited to help clients reach their goals. Are you at the edge of the river?
