Hi Carol, Just stopping by to see how everything is with you. ( How are all of your furry friends?) I'm sure your daughter appreciates all of your help with the baby and all - but - you need to take care of you or can't help anyone. Wishing all the best! Nancy 1878 days ago
The sad part of it was that I was taking care of myself, or so I thought. I can safely say that it had nothing to do with drinking because I don't drink at all. So the pancreatitis had nothing to do with that. but I tell you, I never want to go through that again. I couldn't even hold down water.........
As far as nutrition classes go, I never took any either, but my sister did, 2 hears worth. So I ask her if I need to know anything specific.
Yup, the salt is a HBP thing. 2 years ago the doc thought I had congestive heart failure. Tests ruled it out, but I still present like it so I am having to adjust my eating as if I did. I retain water like crazy, so I am back on diuretics again, after being off them for so many years. Doesn't take much salt for me to retain 10 lbs or more. My poor ankles, I never know from one day to the next if I still have any, lol
I see you are a member of the LIVING WITH DIABETES Team. I am one of the team leaders there. Stop by sometime and say hi.
Take care of yourself. I would love to get to know you.
