Nothing much new here,, it is very cold out, but the 50mph winds have died down to around 25 mph.
Tomorrow I am going grocery shopping with different foods in mind. Unable to have most foods that I like that give me the proper nutrition, I will start slowly and choose a few things.. Now I am totally un-interested in cooking anything,,
I guess veggies and salads are not right for diabetics to get the right nutrition, so I will investigate alternative methods of getting nutritional needs met. I now wonder how vegetarians make it if hey are diabetic. Must live on beans and spinach.. we will see..

Wow! I think everybody within a 200 mile radius of us was in their car today and on the roads we were!! Bad economy?? Where? I just dropped DD off at a bookstore and later picked her up.. gazillions of people!!
We have decided to do our shopping after Christmas, a few days later.. Our big power outage and sleet/ice/snow storm was today..
I am glad I have two days off before I work all day Christmas Eve. 'Tis the season!!

Still feeling depressed and defeated ,, kept going to day, sent out all of my Christmas cards,, had a nice visit with my only close guy cousin.. NOT DIABETIC of course.. we are very close, and are only six months apart in age.
Since I was always over loaded with vegetables at every meal before, I am at a loss as to what is left to eat without making me sick or fatter. NO fruit, juice, bread, pasta, fats, or sweets. That leaves water and leaves.. which count as a veggie, so I am not certain..
one good thing about being depressed about all of this, I do not have any appetite when I am upset..
If I was on antidepressants, I would be screwed....

Personal vent,skip to avoid boredom:
I know this seems VERY trivial to those on my diabetes team, BUT it is very depressing, saddening and defeating to me that I got the news from my dear family doctor yesterday.
I just came home from the hospital, he called me in-between patients,, not a good sign,, he never does that unless it is bad news..
I was totally floored, even in my groggy state, when he told me my FBS that I had drawn with my labs last Saturday, was ,,147. I know this sounds whiny and ungrateful to those of you that are already on meds, insulin,etc, BUT I did everything I was told, above and beyond, even the nurses wanted to know what my secret of weight loss and a change of my A1C from 9.2 to 6.1
My A1C Saturday was 6.3,, went up from 6.1
this is not a whine or complain, it is an old fashioned word called "lament". I want to scream and cry, am starting to,, what did I miss, do wrong, cheat on??
Both grandparents, all aunts, mother, cousins,uncles, all had/have diabetes. Neither of my sisters, nor no cousins on dad's side have it.. just me. They all party hearty, did drugs, some are alcoholics, very bad nutrition, but no problems for them..
Doc told me he will start me on the lowest dosage of glucatrol.. see how it works,, I am disappointed and ashamed that I could not keep the numbers down, that I must have been lazy in my shopping and portioning habits.. Short of cutting out fruit, I do not know how to eliminate any more sugar from my diet,, so may have to go to the classes again.. I went years ago for training a the hospital.. I did listen then, but it seems that nothing I did was right in the past five years, so I will see if my doc has a magic thing to do now....
Blessedly, he did not say anything about that to me except to lose five pounds in the next three months.. I lost three last night after taking my lasix again.. I will double the ante and do ten.. hope I can catch a miracle with weight loss and maybe go off the med later.. praying..
I am also blessed to have this blog to vent..

I am home from my scope,, I drank all of the three liters of prep in four and half hours,, cherry flavored,, DD had two flavors of jello for me, tea and water were all I had,,
I learned something: I deliberately did not take my lasix, but did take my BP pill. Both are diuretics, ,, I gained EIGHT POUNDS YESTERDAY ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!! The prep is filled with sodium a nd sugar, so it sent that scale to new heights. I just got home and took a lasix with the rest of my morning supplements.. Ate a nice breakfast and am munching on an apple for fiber,, got to get back to normal so by tomorrow I will not be inconvenienced having to use the rest room a lot.
The great news is : doctor said I have no new growth and no old things, nothing bleeding,, health colon. I am relieved..
Back to work tomorrow as usual. I am still kind of groggy from the anesthetic, so will take anap now...
I hope everyone has a great day today.
