A Daily Struggle

Posted 05-03-2014 10:10 PM by butchgame59

Having been recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes I find myself struggling to keep my blood glucose anywhere near normal. At first I was eating as if nothing was different with me until my levels started spiking at the 300 - 400's. So then I started to take this thing very seriously, changed my eating habits, started light exercise and lo & behold, my levels dropped down to the mid 100's. And so I am now a firm believer in eating right. My problem right now is that I find myself constantly...

And the pain goes on & on & on...!!

Anyone who has the same problem has my absolute sympathy!! Pain..at least..constant pain grinds you into the ground. Ther are the "good" days which for the most part means that the pain subsides enough to allow for a reasonable amount of activity... in other words, I am able to get a few household chores done and get a decent meal prepared.
I try to go swimming at least once a week..and then my Db nurse very helpfully suggests that perhaps I could up that to twice a week! All very

It's a Go-Go!

My diet is going well and have been able to keep to it without any trouble at all ... so far!

My home help came on Thursday and put my new curtains and pelmets up for me and they look great. Next thing is to get my sitting room carpet cleaned...(about time too! .. )

It's quite surprising that now I have a more positive look towards getting my home into better shape that I feel more positive in dealing with keeping to my diet....

Update: insomnia, reflux and hypoglycemia

Posted 01-16-2013 10:45 AM by Pastafarian

My insomnia is under control now. I was switched from Remeron to Welbutrin. I took Welbutrin for about 5 months and I developed a pretty regular sleeping pattern. I had very low energy level though. I stopped taking it because I was very busy and couldn't get a refill quickly. They usually want you to step down slower but that ended up being just fine. The Dr continued to meet with me and I transitioned okay. I don't have depression at all, but only some mild to moderate anxiety. Since he said Welbutrin...

I am so sick and not sleeping

I've been very sick with many diseases and disorders for quite awhile. I am so sick and not sleeping, evidently due to this hyperthyroidism whose cause hasn't been established. I'm intelligent, but I sound like I'm not when I lack sleep.

I was diagnosed with psoriasis, Hepatitis C, psoriatic arthritis, Type 2 Diabetes, Cirrhosis (from the Hep C) and my doctor has told me my thyroid is overactive, but he's given no real diagnosis on that yet. I'm tired of feeling crappy.
