    I know everyone's a little different, which is why I asked.

Too much information, I know; but just goes to show everyone's different! Now that I shared my secret, how about you? What does a high blood sugar feel like to you? Thanks in advance! I really appreciate it!

I've often wondered about that -- lots of people ask me if I ever get hungry when my blood sugar is high and truth be told, when my blood sugar is high, I always feel bloated and heavy, like I couldn't eat another bite.
