How lovely it was when I read the following in this mornings email:
"When life feels like it's out of control remember that you are the only one in control of your healthy habits!" - Kelly, SP office manager
Dealing with pain and a rumbling tummy makes it difficult, if not impossible to think. What has helped is having healthy food in the house. Going to the pool has not always been an option, but I can always stretch. That said some of the choices I have made have been to comfort.
In order to leave my home without the fear of not being able to find a restroom soon enough, I started running my errands then return home to have breakfast. Yesterday I had breakfast at 12:30 p.m. Sure I found a solution... but this is not how it should be long term.
After my medical insurance gets straighten out, I need to enlist the assistance of the CDE dietician. I attended a diabetes support group meeting where she was the guest speaker.
This prompted me to realize that I need assistance in addressing/solving my current situation. As part of my diabetes team member hopefully she can help direct me to getting this on-going situation coordinated to result some sort of resolution. I haven't had much success.
My fasting glucose numbers are up... but that is probably from the war being waged in my body. Today I will permanently lose an ounce or two. A molar is being extracted... just in time too as it flared up yesterday and one side looks like a stuffed chipmunk cheek.
All I can say is thank heavens for smoothies and soups as they will be in my immediate future.
