It's my own %^&$ fault, for I've learned in the past that good eating habits reduce this syndrome almost to elimination. And I was being very good for January and most of February, but bad habits have been creeping in again. As we approach Easter, there's chocolate in the house, and I can't seem to resist grabbing a few when I pass the bowl. And we had the kids over for dinner last night which required white rolls, pudding with cream, and cookies. Of course, when I have cookies I tend to lose perspective. I had a few in the afternoon, a few more at supper, and another at bedtime. Not only that, but the hamburger-potato casserole that I made for dinner was not one of my light dishes. There were the potatoes themselves (don't forget they're pretty sugary), the milk, the cream and a lot of cheese. So, I really overdid it yesterday and paid the price last night.
I get too confident when I seem to beat the heat for a few months by controlling my wanton appetite. Then, I let loose and suffer for it. I've never heard of anyone else who suffers these heat symptoms, though. It never used to happen to me either; it's just something that has manifested itself in these later years. I didn't really know what caused it until I was eating very properly several years ago in an attempt to reduce my weight a bit. I began to notice that I was no longer suffering form night heat, but whenever I returned to my poor eating habits, the heat returned.
So, I must return to my healthier habits. They won't likely pay off immediately, but perhaps I'll notice an improvement within a few nights.
But why oh why, am I cursed with taste buds that crave all those
