When I was diagnosed 4 months ago, I stopped buying and making certain foods,such as cake and most cookies. I would only buy the ones that my husband likes but I don't so that I wouldn't feel tempted. This strategy was working just fine, but now my in-laws are living with us. My father-in-law is diabetic, but in denial and unwilling to give up any kinds of food.(This is altogether another story…) but my mother-in-law made a huge cake this afternoon. I have been really struggling this week with my desire to eat cookies and cake, and this just was too much to have a chocolate cake sitting right there. I know myself and I'm terrified that I won't be able to resist. It felt really insensitive that she did this, and I ended up snapping on her and then again on my husband when he ate the cake tonight. I'm feeling like they don't care if it is hard for me, and I don't understand it. They are both caring people, but in this way, I feel like my feelings don't matter. It is really possible that I'm the one being unreasonable, and that of course they should have the right to cake. So far, I have stayed far away from the thing, but I know it is there and it bothers me. I'm sorry for this long post, but I'm just so fed up tonight and I even though I shouldn't have snapped on my husband just for eating cake, I don't want to apologize. Have you ever been in this situation?
