Bellia I have No Idea what Mixtard 30 is?
Every day is a struggle. I identify with each of your points at issue! Look Bellia, I am a coward and have no will power when it comes to putting the wrong stuff in my mouth. I also live in a country where shops that could help are either non existent or many many miles away! I have taken the advice I got here on this site. I take my BSugar count before I eat anything. That strengthens my knowledge. I can be confident of the amount and type of food I can eat!My treat is One to Two Digestive biscuits once a day, and only if between meals (11am % 7pm) I can get down to around 96. So far I have only managed 2 Biscuits in 3 weeks, but I don't actually NEED them now! I do get some horrible times every day! nausea, eye muscle weakness. Blurry vision, and occasional balance issues! Not much but enough! My stomach feels hungry 70% of the day! But now this group educated me recently, I let my meter guide me. I take rest when I need to and climb on my exercise bike even when I hate to! The snow on our maintains just makes me peddle faster! sadly I cannot walk far, but the bike helps and I see cals and BS drop after 20 mins, and I compete against myself, and my crazy pointer who wants to catch my feet! I started with 50 full peddle and in a month I'm up to 300. Thats a whole Kilometer!(down hill)haha!
You'll find that people here know inside out what your feeling. It helps if your a cup half full person and Not a cup half empty soul. One more thing. Don't be in guilt! that will kill your spirit and destroy your ability to fight your disease! I eat a whole killo (2pounds) of boiled sweets once on a long journey to a meeting! Had to drive myself into triage. Only to be told I had concussed myself crunching all those sweets! How stupid is that? No wonder my body decided to give me T2 ! Life is just that and we all have stuff we would rather we had not done. GUILT? Put it down Bellie, it's to heavy to carry what ever it contains!
So divide your day up into 2,4,6,6,10 hours and test before and a while after your breakfast. try and cut out snake times all together, but if you cannot, use your meter before putting anything in your mouth and eat smaller portions. Get your self a wifi or join a dance group locally or start one! take your walk and don't mope around. And if you think I have not covered everything many here will. So just hang in here! these are good people! Your Home!
