At the Mosque after fasting all day.
About a cup of rice, half a roti,
VERY spicy chicken, and cucumber yogurt
This little dessert was about 2 ounces.
I’m looking for its name
So I can always remember it.
As if on cue, the Cresent Moon appears
At Iftar... time to break the fast.
They gave me this very nice lantern.
The day-long dry fast
Is broken with Dates and Water.
This picture is from the Mosque’s
Facebook page. I didn’t take it.
About 2 hours PP.
I have not seen readings this high since....
I considered myself to be
Full blown Diabetic.
I was pretty low on water,
As the Hct shows.
It’s normally around 36%
It was such a memorable event.
Ramadan lasts about a month.
They eat like this at the Mosque
Fridays and Saturdays.
I was working, so I didn’t want to
fall out at work.
It has happened before.
It’s already 90F At 10 am.
I brought some water, but the lid came off,
And spilled in the car.
So I didn’t have any Crazy Water.
I had 8 ounces of SJ
And 8 oz regular water.
So it wasn’t a real dry fast.
I didn’t have a morning meal
Before the fast.
I always The the Mom
Fix my Hijab.
I sat in the “old lady room”
Because I am not able
To get up and down from the floor.
I can’t sit cross leg style either.
The morning after - yikes!
I know “slow starches” are slow.
But this is not what I was looking for!
Most of the people in the family I see
Are Diabetic. On Insulin or Metformin.
So many grains.
Any grains are too many, it seems.
Well, for me, at least.
And I gained a little under 2 pounds.
I’m sure it’s water.
