Hello! How's it all going Charles? Look up some of the groups in tu.diabetes when you get a chance!!!
I am part of the Welcome Committee and was just checking in on you to make sure you are aware of all that TuDiabetes has to offer. We would love to hear from you so here is a helpful link where you can read about all the things you can do in the community.
Belive me I know where you are comimg from. I lost count how many times my oldest daughter moved in and out. She is a alcoholic. Been married 4 times 7 I lost count how many loser boy friends she has had. We raised her son for most of his life.He turned out to be a wonderful young man & is now in the Army statiomed in Fort Meade, Maryland.
He is in intellagence so not likly to go to Iraq.
It don't sound like your leturing me. Your right sometimes I just let it all get to me! Right now my oldest child and my 2 grandkids are living with me and her and her hubby are getting ready to move out on me! My youngest moved out last Dec. And I'm going BACK through the empty nest syndrome!!! AHHHHHH! I WILL MAKE IT THOUGH! It just takes my whinney butt time!!!!
The best thing we can do is hang in there and try to achive control. In my case carbohydrates will send my BG higher and faster then sugar. I am on 2 types of insulin Lantus a slow long acting one & Apedra fast acting and about 6 hours duration for quik control. also I am on Actos a pill. I am very fortunite that I have my wifes total support. There are classes you can take to help.Contact your local hospital or Dr. for imfo.
Ugh you got the A1C of 9 too! Don't you hate that? When I first joined here I had an A1C of 6.4 I went back to the Dr last year and it had jumped to 8.1 but I thought I was doing good with the exercise, foods ,exchanges, ext and went back ia April and god an A1C of 9.4!!!! Talk about flustration, being duscasted with myself and the whole gambit of emotions........Yep was there but My Dr has been my Dr for 24 years and his nurse has been there left and came back. She told me just to give myself time and up the basel rate on my pump and by August I would fall down again. God I hope she's right only time will tell though!
Your insulin doseage with shots may sound lamebut I've been on the MM pump for 20 years and I really don't know anything about the shot insulins out there! Stupid isn't it? My daughter who's a Type 1 too went on the pump almost 2 years ago so we're kinds out there when it comes to anything other than pump insulins please tell me more about them!
Your wife sounds like a fighter along with you. I bet you guys inspire each other to fight what ever happens to the other!
WOW Charles please tell your wife about us ! She can join too and join a group here that's for the Type 3's here or our care givers. She sounds like a good woman and maybe this would help her get some of the flustration out just by talking to others who are in her shoes!!!
Your kids are as old as I am I'm 45 and I have 2 girls one diabetic (Type 1 like mom) and almost 20 with my 2 granddaughters (the one in the pic who is now almost 20 months old and the other one just turned 5 weeks old yesterday) and my 18 year old who's learning life on her own right now and not to happy about it! HA but then again who is ??? HA! I wish I was their age and knew what I know now! Alast too late for that! Oh well I had to learn it the hard way but sometimes I think I made it harder! HA!!!!
