This sinus thing is so bad, that now my glands are infected and I can't swallow. So here I am at 3:30am restocking my canned goods because I can't sleep, also my pillow is soaked from all the slobber.
I ended up going to the ER on Sunday evening and the hooked me right away on antibiotics and morphine and then sent me home hours later with a prescription to fill and 6 Lortabs for pain. Now that it's Thursday my throat still hurts but my sinuses have cleared.
Oh I dislike being sick. Just trying to endure emoticon

Not happy :(

Sunday, August 08, 2010

How could I have gained 8 pounds in two weeks? Ok, so much for shedding the frybread at my first weigh in. (could it be the new insulin?)
BUT I'm not giving up, although it feels like odds are against me. Meaning that I have a severe sinus infection, a toothache, a sore throat/swollen neck and still being blind, other that that everythings ok. I have faith that with GODs help I will make it through this.
Be blessed Sparkfriends

    You will make it, don't despair! A change in insulin can throw your body off temporarily, and being sick DEFINITELY does not help. Do what you know you need to, but most of all, take care of yourself and get better; it's hard to focus on much of anything when you're fighting that kind of sickness.

    You can do it! There will be times that are rougher than others, but they are what make us realize that this is a journey and that there are good times and bad, but the point is never to give up. I have faith in you and know you can do this. God bless!

    You Can, You Will, and you'll succeed! One of my favorite sayings and I end each of my blogs with it, is this:

I CAN, I WILL, I AM ! (It has really helped me to stay on track because I'm putting so much faith into my decisions.)

Good luck to you!

Losing my vision :(

Sunday, July 25, 2010

I mean eyesight. Not permanently but if I don't do anything to correct it now it can become permanent. Lately my blood sugars have been running high and my vision has changed a lot and I don't like it, I can't read, or get on my computer, or even drive (prefer not to).
Even with the added exercise, my eyesight has not gotten better, in fact since I started is when it changed. But I am not stopping the exercise I have more benefits because of it.
My doctor has me taking one more Metformin in the AM, and now I take 5 units of Humalog just before meals so we are hoping things will get better soon. Also I just did labs so I will know this week what my A1c is.
Have a blessed week Sparkfamily emoticon

    I was on Metformin and had to stop this month. It caused me to have EXPLOSIVE diarrhea out of the clear blue. Now my glucose is up. I had cataract surgery several years ago. My vision was greatly improved for a while and then things got blurry again. Went in to the eye doctor. He did a laser treatment and in less than 3-5 minutes my vision was better than it ever had been!

I hope you can find what's causing your problem and reverse it!

Keep on keeping on.

  I will be praying for you! Please go to a medical eye doctor as it could be a condition caused by Diabetes. I am a Type 2 Diabetic. I have Right Angle Narrow Vision Gluacoma. Right now it is not serious but I will have to a procedure done sometime. My husband had it done and his eye sight is better.
Anyway, you are proactive and you are taking care of yourself.
Again, I will be PRAYING!

He learned to late that it was really about taking care of the diabetes and your own health. A good reminder for us all. Prayin' for you. emoticon

Hello JoAnne,

I am sorry to hear about your current dilemma, but it seems you are being pro-active and that in itself will help you along.. And you're right, exercise can never be a bad thing.. Listen to your doctors, visit Dr. Oz's site, he is really on the warpath about this scourge that is sweeping our nation.. And educate yourself.. We're rootin 4u and we know you will shine brite.. Much success, Mitchie emoticon

    Take very good care of yourself! I'm assuming that you are monitoring your blood sugar closely and keeping your doctor informed frequently--this is not something to be taken lightly, as you well know. My husband is diabetic, too, and there are times when it's well controlled and times when it seems to go haywire. I'll be praying for you to get everything balanced out and for your sight to go back to normal quickly!

    I'm really sorry to hear that. I hope that you and your doctor will be able to figure things out and that your eyes will improve soon. Good for you for deciding to continue with the exercise! I know if I got news like that, I would likely get depressed and eat. You have great motivation!

    I am sorry to hear this... I am also a diabetic... and truth be told, I am a BAD diabetic, because I gallop along and pretend I am bullet proof, and none of those complications will ever happen to ME. But its not too late, take very good care of yourself now!
