    Hello @cogeasca and welcome to the community.

    Have you discussed this with your employer, and if so have they made adjustments to work to make it easier to cope? IE included extra breaks for you to eat and manage your sugar levels?

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!
