ahh..im home at last ,its been such a long day.thank god my momma baby sat for me.well my doctor appointment is over,it went well.i think together we came up with something that will hopefully work for me.diabetes runs on both sides of my family really bad,so my doc doesnt seem to think i will not have diabetes once i lose the weight i have to lose.but he did switch my insulin.and i shouldnt have to eat so much b 4 bed now. unfortunately my nerve damage is here to stay.but im looking on the bright side.i feel better about myself.i have dealt with my diabetes since i was 19.i think as long as i keep it very controlled i shouldnt get worse.my aunt died from it.her kidneys failed,so its a little scary.but alot of things in life r scary.and i also know things can always get worse.so i feel very lucky to have reached the point in my life where i know what i need to do to stay healthy.i know there is no miracle pill.what it takes is exactly what im doing.so i will keep going.i will be happy when my depression subsides. my husband ,and i had a good talk tonight.i was feeling so down,and lonely.kinda like ..so unsure of myself.i guess thats the only way to put it.but after crying on the phone to him like a big baby,he made me feel better.its weird.sometimes the guy can be soooo clueless.then theres the other times when hes right on it..i dont know mark(my hubby)just fixed a big part of me tonight.seems to just make it all better
while i was out today,my mom,and i took pics of eachother.we could tell a huge huge difference!which made us feel awesome.im going to post them tonight.well i have rambled on long enough.
I admire that you're doing all that you can (keeping a close watch on the diabetes, losing weight) to keep yourself on the road to a long lifetime. It's so hard, but you're not giving up - way to go!
II admire you because you are so strong even though you got the diabetes you are doing everything in your power to get healthy, and some things cannot be helped like the nerve dammaged but the stress weight puts on the body will help get rid some of the pain hopefully.I also admire the fact when you are down you turn to your husband for help with coping with emotions it takes a strong woman to do so,he sounds like a keeper. Im guilty of keeping stuff inside till it hurts, and I have physical side effects.
Keep going my dear and have a beautiful easter = ) 4447 days ago
Husbands are funny that way arn't they? Mine is the same way. When I am feeling down and need to just let go he always knows what to say and do to make me feel better. If he doesn't know what to say he will simply stay beside me or hold me until it is okay. Mark is doing the same thing for you, but 100s of miles away. He is mentally holding you until everything gets better. Take care, Christina, and happy easter to you too! 4448 days ago
