I certainly know what that is like. Just because I may not have one now, it could strike anytime and I know that. And when it does strike I know what I want, and it's not an apple. Please keep me informed. Sometimes we just have to get thru life together. You can private message me if you want to.

Robin, I haven't talked to her yet. I've just been trying to get it to lower and thought it would after I stopped eating so many sweets as I had been. I've had an extreme sweet tooth for a while.

I wish I could figure it out. Even eating low carb isn't a help anymore. Meds cause my IBS to get worse and it is really bad now. Doesn't matter what I eat or drink.

Improving my sleeping. Often I get up a few times a night which disrupts my sleeping comfort time. Falling back to sleep can be difficult at times. To assist this we bought a softer bed and new pillows. This has improved my quality of sleeping.

I do hope you all had a Merry Christmas. And there is still more sharing during this holiday season.
We joined my son's family at a park yesterday. We had super weather and it was like being out of town basking in the sun. The grandkids were still wired up over the day. My grandson was going to go down for a nap, but was to wound up, so we moved out social a few hours. He was tuckering out fast, so I hope he napped without having to be awakened to his bed.
My numbers were okay in the morning. I ate breakfast and went on a couple of walks. I checked myself later in the afternoon without eating, and my numbers dropped 60. So this is my advice for what works with Diabetes; take your medicine, exercise, get sunshine, and don't eat. lol

Hope you all have had a very Merry CHRistmas. Wow, I could type this if my cat would stay off the computer, I think. He started capitalizing letters.

We had early candlelight services yesterday. No blowing out live candles this year. We had electric for a change. My friend and her son both had solos in the worship team. First time since we've been there that Anne has had a solo. 3rd time for her son, I think. Then we took some pictures of her younger son and his fiance in front of the Christmas trees and went to her house for Christmas celebration. It was really great meeting her future daughter in law. She is really sweet. I am so happy for her son, too. Ate too much last night, which doesn't help with my diabetes management. Today I haven't done much, but I am trying to eat less and better. It is really hard for me to get away from those sweets.

Sorry, I haven't been back for a while. Busy and wasn't sleeping well, since my sister passes, as very stressful as she died Intestate. I think I have that settled now and have been sleeping better. Been trying to spend less time on computer. More time exercising, and we've been getting lots of snow so been busy as I help hubby by doing the snow blowing. He does the shoveling as it hurts my back. I have been eating treats that I shouldn't but due to all the exercise I've actually lost 1 lb in the last 2 weeks. But I've had to up my Long lasting Insulin. I had it down to 6 units/day but I'm now back up to 10 units. My T2 - A1C on Dec 14th was 6.5 and morning Fasting are ranging from 4.2 this morning to 5.7 other mornings. So I'll drop it to 8 units tonight.

Glad to hear Fancyqtr your truck is OK,

Hope I'm glad that your friend is ok after his fall. You are a great help to them I'm sure.

George you seem to have a good handle, on keeping things under control. I believe all diabetic have times when we eat things we shouldn't. It's only human. emoticon Everyone

Merry Christmas!

Less stress would help some, I think.

I did get some less stress today when my mechanic got here (friend of mine who just likes to do auto mechanics, not his regular job). He is often better than the mechanics at the garages. It was a case of my transfer case getting bumped into neutral instead of 2 wheel drive. He pushed it back into the right spot and the truck is running fine.

Just starting to do over some beanies. Hoping I can get them done before Thursday.

My friend is in his mid-70s. Today I took his cat food over to him, then took him to get a prescription. Then started to take him to get their dinner and some mail. Didn't make it to that one. Got to a stop light and heard a clunk and no longer could get the truck to move. I think I have totally lost my transmission. I'll find out this weekend when Danny comes to check it out. Don't know what I am going to do without a vehicle. The directions I go aren't very accessible with the bus.

I am trying to drink more water, which can be hard for me. I also drink my tea.

I'm getting stressed over Christmas. I found out the beanies/caps I've been making won't fit people. The ones I started with are the exact measurement that the pattern says, but they are too short to come down to the ears and they are supposed to cover the ears. I don't know what I can get done before next Thursday.

New Hope, that should help with your numbers since you won't be under as much stress.

I had to take a friend to the ER today. He fell while shoveling snow the other day. His leg has been hurting ever since and I guess today it swelled enough he couldn't get his shoe on. His wife can't do anything for him because she has (I think) cystitis (swelling of lymph in legs). Turned out he broke his tibia. He almost couldn't make it into the house when we got him home and the sidewalk there is all icy. If things don't melt tomorrow I am going to take my shovel over and try to get the walk cleaned.

I bet he is glad to get out of the rehab. We have some elderly friends where the senior lady fell and ended up in assisted living with her husband. She can't hold a conversation on the phone longer than a minute. Kind of scary if we all end up that way.

On the 19th my friend is being discharged from rehab and going to live in assistant living place which I feel will be better than living alone because he is very weak . I am standing by to see what I can do to help in closing out the apartment he now has. After all that is over then I have to start paying attention to my own self and my own life.

Darlene, We can't believe everything we read I know, but I am willing to give most things a try.
I have been reading a book on lemon and limes which claims they are a cure all for many problems especially digestive issues and stones because it will balance your PH. I think I might give this a try. This is what it suggest: in warm temperature water add lemon or lime and drink 1/2 hour to 1 hour before meals.

George, right now in my life there is nearly unbearable stress and it seems impossible to stick to any health routine at all. Maybe had I already formed the good habits and had them firmly in place I could do better. I had a good breakfast this morning of scrambled eggs, Brussels spouts and applesauce then my eating went downhill with my day. emoticon

BRAT diet is interesting. Even though bananas contain all 3 natural sugars, it can be carby. Rice is definitely carby. Applesauce is good, i have a 50 calorie kind. The toast can be carby depending on which one. I use a Sara Lee type which is good on carbs and calories.
As I mature with Diabetes, I try to eat a minimal amount of carbs. Difficult when going out to eat or on holidays or celebrations.

I was on metformin and had problems with diarrhea. That has followed me even though I am no longer on it. The problem with all those new ones is they almost all have that as a side effect plus they have heart problems as side effects, too. That is why I am trying to control with diet, but that is so hard, too, because of the IBS. They say to use the BRAT diet for it or else FODMAP. I can't eat most of FODMAP and BRAT is all high carb -- Banana, Rice, Applesauce, and Toast. BRAT is what I've had the last few days except for the rice.

Meals on Wheels is an idea. You have to eat even when you don't feel like it. Part of the problem with me is having "good" food in the house. I find if I shop right, it is easier to eat healthy. It does get challenging with vegetables though. They are perishable.

I know a few people on Metformin that did ok on it. A number it gave diarrhea to. I was pulled off of it because it made me very ill and I was told never to take it again because I had a rare side effect from it that rises your lactic acid level and can lead to death. I am sure other people stop taking it for less side effects. There is a lot more drugs out on the market now than there use to be. Talk to your doctor about any problems your having with it.

I am thinking next here I might take meals on wheels because some days I am just too tired to cook and those days I don't eat very balanced.

Sometimes when I am being really good watching what I eat my sugar goes up anyway, then sometime when I am not as careful with what I am eating and expect bad numbers they are good so who can make total sense out of it all. LOL

In one of the books I am reading they keep stressing " Food is Medicine". I like that term.

Not reading any new diet books. Have had appointments with 3 registered dieticians. The first 2 were similar. The last one was very helpful. My new medical provider is similar in philosophy of managing diabetes so it has been a worthwhile change. I don't have many choices from here though.
They have been very modern and innovative in the drug menu I can take. That I am thankful.

GEORGE815 - When I do the apple cider I never follow the recommendations because they are out to sell pills. I would just have one or two after my last meal or snack of the day and it improved my morning reading. I think with them less is best. Too much of a good thing does not always help.

when I was having just plain fruit or fruit cup between meals, only if I felt hungry then I was dropping weight better than I am now. Just fruit alone in-between meals did not hurt my sugar reading. If you look up carb count on fruit and veg. it is not much. Look up carb count on bread , rice, oatmeal etc. it is quite high so I save those for a main meal. Under all this stress I have not been sticking as close to my plan. You know I am sure that I am talking about emotional eating.

Trying that apple cider vinegar in tablets. They suggest 2 pills, three times a day. I don't know if that is giving me an upset stomach or something else.
Bought some veggies today. Took me a few trips as the multi color small bell peppers have been out.Got some grape tomatoes to snack on. Lately I need something to fill me up without it being too carby. Does anyone eat a similar snack between meals?

MRSCLASSICSCRAZ: thanks for sharing what your grandson says, I am going to try and remember it because now my daughter who has been critically ill is back in hospital. My friend was moved to rehab today . He was wanting out and they told him he can't go . While he is improving physically , he is going down emotionally. I had a long talk with him saying he needs to cooperate with them , they are there to help him etc. etc. it seem to calm him down .

I got out to grocery shopping today and bought up a lot of good food for my new eating plan. First time I been out of the house in two weeks. It felt good to get some fresh air . Maybe I should plan on walking around the yard each day.

George where are you today? We miss you.

New Hope : Good for you, wish I could. But last night was much better I actually slept for 7hrs. So little steps, my sister is in a better place, with no more pain or loneliness. Time to deal with it and move on.

George So true...Important to try your best, beating yourself up doesn't solve anything. I walk lots but Consistent exercise is my drawback, especially strength training. So instead of say I will try to stay motivated. I'm now say I AM motivated and use my grandson's favorite saying "Suck it up Buttercup"

Thank you both for sharing. It's nice when you have someone that understands & are on the same journey.

MRSCLASSICSCRAZ:: I am able to turn it off after I get in bed, problem is I am getting to bed way to late and still have to get up early. I have totally lost my focus on everything. Good news he can swallow now and they are feeding him by mouth. Tomorrow he is going to re-hab which seems too fast to me . I felt more calmer today than I have since this crises started . I cant imagine the stress your going thru. Hope the family all supports you. Too many family's start disagreements when someone dies. My prayers are with you that God will give you the strength to get thru all that.

George , don't buy into the negativity and dooms day picture medical people paint of diabetes. It will get much worse if we all don't try to improve. You are making a effort and I believe people on this team will see improvement if they keep on trying. AT one time my a1c was 11 and now I have it down to 6.7. I have reduced my insulin in half . Like you I don't think a bunch of drugs is good in low run , but necessary while we try to find ways to change to a better diet and get consistent with exercise. Believe you can improve and your on the right road. There is a saying "believe and your halfway to your goal" , well I don't know about halfway , but maybe a start in right direction so keep on pushing.

Myself I try a new idea for 10 days and if I don't feel better in someway then I try another idea. If whatever seems to be helping then I keep it up. Right now what seems to be helping me is having a plant based diet more often. There are two books I recommend to support your effort if anyone wants to try more days of plant based foods. I will take a pic of them one day soon. That way of eating is a challenge especially if you been a big meat eater like me. I suggest starting small, learning new recipes. I just started two weeks ago and you feel worse at first then better and better.

Nothing for me has worked all the time. A cold will cure after the right measures have been taken. Diabetes isn't something you can do something than put it on the shelf till you want to do something else. You need to keep doing whatever it takes to maintain your health at a certain quality level. Keeping in mind the disease itself is progressive which challenges the mental part of all of us.
