A Very Scary moment That set me straight!!

Thursday, November 17, 2016

I went back to the Old Way of thinking that everyone that needed me came before ME! There was 6 babies born into the family the past two years.I've been running back and forth between them helping out and running everyone around like a Taxi.I was cooking cleaning and watching the other kids and trying to find time to spend with everyone.It was not enough for them they each got upset because I was spending more time on her or him.One day in October while out and about I passed out in the Wal Mart restroom.It only lasted about 5 minutes but it was enough to scare some sense into me.I went to see my Doctor the next day and a few days later called me to come back in.With a pounding heart and nerves on edge he said "You have DIABETES" Your cholesterol is high but since I've seen you do it before I'm only going to put you on insulin for a while and see what happens. I cried and whined to DH and he said lets go right now and get you some workout clothes and a new pair of shoes. At first I was miffed he wasn't more attentive and hand patting.He said I don't want to lose you honey isn't that enough? So I called all my daughters and grandkids and told them What was about to happen and surprisingly enough they actually understood MOM/GRAMMY was not taking care of them as much.I cut out sugar,bread,fast food,candy/upped my water started walking and doing my elliptical,lifted weights used the gym and LOST 19 LBS!! In a month!! Just know that diabetes does not show symptoms we are that aware of.I was listening to well meaning friends tell me I could eat what I wanted and use the insulin, NO NO NO that is not true.I read and research all the time.Please Pray for me as I will for you all emoticon SUSAN
