I found out a few years ago I was a diabetic. I had one blood sugar in the md office that was 203. That is what started my journey through this disease. I have to say I have been lucky in all that time my disease has been diet controled. My biggest problem until lately has be hypoglycemia.
Well now my sugars are creeping up. I checked it tonight it was 226. I can't talk to my family about this because they do not understand. My biggest problem is I am allergic to nutrasweet. I do not want to whine. Ok, maybe I do. Everything sugar free has nutrasweet. I found one Ice tea company with sweet and low instead of nutra-sweet (aka aspertame, asperflume anything with asper in it basically).
I should know how to handle this and what to; I do it for my patients. Problem is now it is me and I just want to sit and cry.
I have nightmares of sliding scales and insulin injections I do not want that!!!!!!!
Like I said my family does not understand. My mom told me it was easy I could do it. Imagine never drinking a soda again, or eating a candy bar just because you feel like it.
My husband tells me you just do what you have to do to get better all the while munching on chips-a-hoy cookies.
I did do something positive I made an appointment with the diabetes educator at work. I have an appt on July 3. I need help to change my life style I guess. I know what I have to do I guess now if I can only do it that is the question.
Thank you for allowing me this forum to vent my feelings!
