I Need To Get This Off My Chest

So I need to talk about something pretty important today. I have mentioned it on twitter in the past, but I think it's time to put it all out there and finally get it off my chest. Whew, okay, here goes... sometimes.. I get, well, there's no better way to say it... sometimes I get.. hangry.



Yup, I'm ashamed to admit that I suffer from hanger. And by sometimes I mean almost daily. Urban dictionary defines hangry as follows:

When you are so hungry that your lack of food causes you to become angry, frustrated or both. 
An amalgum of hungry and angry invented to describe that feeling when you get when you are out at a restaurant and have been waiting over an hour to get the meal that you have ordered.
"Damn! Where is that steak I ordered? We've been waiting for an hour and a half here. The service here is terrible! I'm starving! I don't know about you, but I'm starting to feel really hangry!"


And yes, I seriously get angry when I'm hungry. Brian has learned to pick up on my symptoms over the years, but there's really nothing he can do to get rid of my hanger except GIVE ME FOOD. If we are at a restaurant and we've been sitting there for 5 minutes and our server has never come over to us yet, I GET MAD (I used to be a server so I know). I start getting super b*itchy and snarky and he literally can see my blood start boiling and my temperature rising and *woop there it is* the hanger has emerged. As soon as the food comes out and I have about 3 bites worth, the hanger subsides and all is right with the world again.


Do you or someone you know suffer from hanger? Do you want to start a support group with me? Maybe we should get our blood sugar tested...

  1. "Whoop there it is" ... thanks now I'll be singing that all day. But yes, the hanger struggle is REAL.

  2. haha love this as I too suffer from hanger. It was actually an ex that first pointed it out to me. Now I give people fair warning if they are hanging out with me around common eating times. Perhaps we should make t-shirts that say "If I start yelling - give me food". lol

  3. Um, yes. My husband can live without eating and I can't. On grocery store days, when we are lazy and the pantry is bare, we may not make it to the store til 1-ish and I go in there and face the giant race car carts with nothing in my tummy and I am ready to run over those slow children (not really but it feels that way). Then once a few free samples get in my system, I'm back to normal!

  5. Hahah, my bf gets all sleepy but he hardly ever gets angry so the most he gets is annoyed. I love doing stuff early and--if it were up to me--we'd skip breakfast and get going but he physically NEEDS breakfast so I actually get more annoyed when he's hungry bc I feel like he's wasting precious time by munching. I try to be userstanding but time is a-ticking! So yea...when he's hungry, I'm angry lol.

  6. haha I don't really get super hangry- but my old roommate was the absolute WORST. Still is! When she's hungry you know you better get her food quick or shit's gonna go down.

  8. True story: after only a few months of dating Pete though to himself "I don't know if this is going to work out" because we traveled to Canada for a date and I got hangry while we were driving around looking for somewhere to eat. "I don't care, I'll take a fucking Snickers from a vending machine at this point." I believe those may have been my exact words. Whoops!

  9. I get hangry. Everyone knows it. Even as a kid, when I would start to get snippy/whiny my mom would be like 'OK time for food!' and I'd get all indignant but she was right.

  10. yes I definitely can relate.The WORST is when I get home and find that someone has already eaten whatever it was that I was craving all day..now that is hanger!

  11. Oh I get hangry. Really bad. The worst time I went on a cleanse diet and that day we went to Sea World. I was starving and super hangry I just sat there and didn't do anything...Until I at a piece of turkey from my friends sandwich and drank a smoothie. If I didn't do that I probably would have killed someone for just looking at me.
