Hi Cheryl, Sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner. I had to run to work. I checked your SParkPage and it looks like you figured it out or got someone else to help. Glad you got it set up. It's a great visual for seeing how far you've come. Becky
Hi Cheryl, Welcome to the team. What a scary way to get the news that you have diabetes. I am so glad your numbers have gotten so much better. We are a friendly group here. Feel free to ask any questions that you have and share your journey here. We are all here to help each other on this journey to good health. Again, welcome to the team. Becky
My name is Cheryl and I have just recently been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Sugar level was over 600 when I was admitted. Thought I had the flu! Had all the classic symptoms but blamed them on everything else.
Taking 4 shots a day will "wake you up"! I have feeling much better and my sugar levels are down below 200 most of the time and in the last 2 days, I have not had to take insulin with lunch or dinner because my numbers were good..whoohooo!!
I live in Orlando, FL and lead a very active lifestyle. I actually work (3) different jobs, 1 full-time and 2 others just 1 day a piece, so I keep very busy!
I have 2 children 26 and 15 and I also have 2 grandkids 5 & 2.
Looking forward to meeting everyone!
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but my the moments that take our breath away!
