Soooo Hungry!!!

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

OK, why is it that when you know you can't eat, you become soooo hungry and your sense of smell is heightened!!!! I was laughing because my BF has been on the road for over a week and I just noticed some pistachios on the top of the fridge! We were on the phone when I made my discovery and he said, " Hey I thought you couldn't see on the top." (I'm 5ft and he is 6ft 6in, so this is a running joke). I said I seen just the edge of the bag. I hate that I work late hours, I didn't get off work till midnight and I couldn't eat after midnight.It just reaffirms my belief that God has a really good sense of humor. I would be asleep now if I didn't have to wait to put a load in the dryer. My daughter just had to wear these certain jeans and this certain holiday sweater to school tomorrow. Ok ok I wanted her to wear it, but now I am paying the price because even the laundry detergent smells good enough to eat!!!!! I hear the spin cycle now so it is off to bed I go!!!


BTW, I had my lowest reading in almost a month, 170!! I know it's still very high, but it is a lot better than 378!!

(wow, it feels good to get my sense of humor back)

    Thank you JLINK1972, she looked too cute!!(I think I'm a little biased though) 170 is not bad compared to what it has been, but I just took it again this moning because I am so ligh headed and it was 198 on one finger and 211 on the other. How could itt go back up and I haven't eaten anything? emoticon

My Big Day!!!!

Monday, December 21, 2009

Well tomorrow is my appt. , I am not as nervous thanks to my SP family. I am just hoping they can tell me what I need to do instead of me going back an forth. I am going to my family dr. so I am thinking they may send me to a specialist. I just want to get on the right path. I did good tracking all of my food today, so I guess that is a good start.


Wish me luck! emoticon

    I'm just betting that once you see your Dr and talk about everything, you are going to feel so much better. Nice to be able to have him give you direction and some guidelines.

Sometimes we need a push from Up Above to kick it into gear!

I look forward to hearing all about your Dr visit

Afraid!

Saturday, December 19, 2009

Ok, when everyone was telling me I needed to go to the Drs I was like ok, I will go. WHen I called to make my appointment and explained why I was coming in the nurse seemed more afraid than I was !! After talking to a co-worker who is a diabetic and a couple of family members they told me I should be afraid. I never thought this would happen to me. I know, it should stupid, but I never thought I would be worried about anything like this. Even though my mother was borderline and my grandmother was insulin dependent, I just never thought that is something I would ever worry about. Well this is my wake up call, I am afraid now.



I am in a state of panic and I'm afraid to eat because I don't want my level to go up because it seems like everything will drive it up. I ate a piece of chicken last night and had about 6 ozs of diet pop and when I woke up this morning it was 247. I am soo hungry, but afraid to eat. The nurse told me to log my levels in the morning and at night until I come in. I'm glad my fiancÚ' left his extra meter here when he left to go back on the road. I think I may be doing the test wrong, but he days just poke my finger and just get a little drop on the test strip. I just keep praying something is wrong with his meter. Ok, I know there isn't, but I can hope :)

    Take this as a chance to take care of yourself. I don't know anything about diabetes but there are some really great people here who are just waiting for you to ask for advice.

You're going to be okay. You just have to do things differently now. Hang in there.

    I know lots of people who are diabetic and they manage their intake very well. You will soon learn what you can or cannot eat for your benefit, and all my friends say "little and often" to keep the levels even. You definitely shouldn't go without food or your levels will yo-yo. Look for a diabetic team on Sparks or do some Google searches for info on eating/drinking info. Don't let it spoil your Christmas - it definitely needn't! Best Wishes for a lovely Christmas and a Controlled Healthy New Year!

    DON'T BE AFRAID. Actually, learning I had Type 11 Diabetes put me on a path to much better health! Your blood sugar is way too high for normal..so you probably do have type two...but it is VERY manageable, if you are willing to make a few changes, educate yourself, and pay attention. The worst thing you can do for yourself is ignore it!

Don't not eat because of fear of your blood sugars. There are lots of things you can eat that won't push your sugars high..or higher..and you DO need to eat.

Feel free to contact me if I can help. There is also at least one diabetes team here who I am SURE would be glad to give you loads of help.

Not soo good!!!!

Friday, December 18, 2009

I knew it was time to come back when I kept getting blood sugar readings over 200. I never went to the drs for diabetes, but my fiancÚ(feels weird to say that hehe)who along with his daughter is a diabetic and he has been checking my levels because of some of the things that he has noticed. Last night I checked it before bed and it was 370!!!! He made me understand how bad that was and made me promise to make a drs appointment since it hasn't been below 200 since Thanksgiving. When I woke up this morning it was down to 248, but he still says that's waaayyy to high. It felt so good to hear him say,"we will work on this together." Wow, that feels good!!!


I am back ( that is a good thing), but I have to settle back into getting a plan and sticking with it when it comes to my meals. I did so well before I know I can do it again!!! Thank you everyone who has welcomed me back!!I sure have missed you guys! emoticon

    Welcome back. You have made a great step with looking at your eating habits and fitness but you need to see a doctor immediately. Please do not play around with this condition. It has many side effects that you want to have monitored. Today is the first step. Keep going!!!!

  Haste ye to a doctor! Blood sugar that high can be doing a lot of damage.

I remember one time a pregnant friend who had gestational diabetes was checking her blood sugar and decided just for the heck of it to check her 3 year old daughter's blood sugar. It was over 500! No symptoms what so ever so who knows how long it would have gone untreated if her mom hadn't checked it on a a lark.

    Congratulations! I know EXACTLY how you are feeling right now, since I've been in the same situation in my past.
The freedom is priceless, the independence is welcomed, and the opportunity to explore all the upcoming adventures is endless.
Get yourself out, and socializing with others...even if you have to go to the local coffee shop, library, go do a load of laundry at the laundry mat...ANYTHING....but most importantly, CALL PEOPLE and GET TOGETHER. Tell your family and friends that you need support. Don't be embarrassed, ashamed, afraid, or isolate yourself...it's ok to tell others, "I need a little support right now, and could use some comfort time with you."
Hang in there sweets, the New Door to Life has just opened up W-I-D-E for you.
