I have been under alot of stress, and just want to know what does everyone do to relieve your stress so you don’t spike your sugars?

    1. I watch funny shows and movies. I love a good 80's-90's sitcom show! I also enjoy reading a good book or spending some quality time with loved ones. What hobbies do you enjoy?
