I don't eat fruit, breads or pasta or dairy except for cheese. I just restocked my lancets and strips and may experiment with fruit and my glucose readings. Tonight, I did have a treat of pancakes (breakfast for dinner). I haven't had any since last November.
Thank you for the suggestions though, any advice will help. 1 day ago
I am popping my pills and logging my foods. It wasn't the weight at the doctor's office that made me angry, it was that I had the kidney stone in January and he is just now prescribing a pill? He told me to go on a low carb, low fat diet, but didn't give me any idea where to find that type of diet.
I have to take care of my own health and yet he is paid to do it or that is how it seems. 1 day ago
Ticks were bad at our house when I was growing up. Dad cut down trees and that seemed to help. My parents whitewashed the walls in the basement and that helped to us to spot any ticks that were on the walls. I know when we were burning wood that they would come into the house on the logs.
One Sparker has seen a snake in Virginia already too, so maybe this will be an odd year for ticks and snakes.
Generally the ticks that you can see are not the ones that carry Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a terrible disease and many times is misdiagnosed as something else. I don't remember ever finding a tick on Princess. I comb Bayau and Crellie with a flea comb and should feel anything that has attached itself to their skin. 4 days ago
