I do. In the stationery drawer of my desk is where I keep my secret stash. When you first open it, it looks like any stationery drawer: envelopes, stamps, stationery, even some healthy pumpkin seeds. But buried below the facade is the real gold.
As you can see in the 2nd picture, that's where I hide my gluten free peanut butter cookie, and what's left of a 2 lb bag of peanut M&Ms dumped into a freezer bag. I even included the carb information from the bag so I can bolus correctly.
Why would one hide food? Well, in my case, it's for a couple reasons. The first being out of fear of judgement. Someone will come over and see these sugary, bad-for-you treats and and think to themselves no wonder she has diabetes or should she be eating THAT? I sometimes dig in to my goodies when I'm stressed. I don't want anyone to know that I run to bad food when I'm sad or stressed out. I feel as though while what I eat is nobody else's business, I just don't want to deal with being lectured or looked down on.
The other reason is because my secret stash makes me feel powerful. Because whenever I feel like it, I can eat it. I have control over something and the fact that no one even knows about it, makes it even more powerful and exciting.
I've never told anyone about my little secret stash. None of the friends that come to my place know about it. Do you hide food? If so, why? Or do you have something else that you hide that helps you deal with your diabetes? DO TELL.
