I've read all your comments on my post about having to take a nap the other day. Thanks for all your encouragement! It's not that I think it's wrong to take a nap. Not having to take a nap has become like my guage for how well my day is going. For about a year before I was diagnosed with diabetes, I had to take increasing amounts of time for sleep, until I was sleeping all day long AND all night long, waking only long enough to fix meals for my family, take a shower, or go to church. That was a scary, dark time in my life. I thought something was wrong with me spiritually. After diagnosis, when my sugar levels began coming down and I started feeling better, I was able to stay awake more, and I had more energy than I'd had in years, quite literally. In the past couple of years, I've rarely had to take a nap, and when I did, I could usually count on my blood sugar being out of whack (how's that for a good medical term?!). I feel like I came across as anti-nap, that it was wrong to need a nap. That's not it at all; it's just my way of guaging how I'm doing personally. In fact, I once heard a pastor's wife say that taking a nap can be the most spiritual thing a woman could do during the day (and she was referring to a nap, not sleeping your entire day away or being lazy!), because it refreshed her for her husband. I would tend to agree with that!
