for ten days now. The first day Chad said he had a headache. Pshaw, I thought. That is totally all in your head…a headache 12 hours after you stop eating sugar. Three days later, when I started getting headaches, I felt silly. Four days after that, when I was STILL getting headaches (they started late afternoon and lasted until I went to bed), I admitted it. I was having sugar withdrawals.
One day I saw a banana peel in the trash can and my mind told me it was a Charleston Chew wrapper. Later that day, I walked past an office and thought I saw a big delicious bag of black jelly beans. I’m pretty sure it was just a stapler.
Hello, my name is Alison, and I’m addicted to sugar.
