Hello everyone out there! I just joined this site, actually, I just found out about the DOC from my new friend and coworker 2 days ago. I think it was fate that he and I met. He has opened my world…Continue

It is never enough....

I have been using my CGM, testing more, remembering to bolus, and downloading to the software... But I just can't get into the habit of writing it all down. Can't that be enough.... Geez!Any Ideas?Why can't ths be enough? Does it really matter exacty what I ate.. I mean, I know it does, but I have a full time job already. Really.See More

"I am quite lucky in the regard, I use the accu chek combo system, my carb total, bolus and basal data, BG values are all logged automatically. Every 90 days I just download the data, look at the reports and email over to my endo."

Any Ideas?

Why can't ths be enough? Does it really matter exacty what I ate.. I mean, I know it does, but I have a full time job already. Really.

Why does it seem that all Mondays are like this?

Posted on May 14, 2012 at 11:50am 1 Comment

So I know this will sound, and like actually will be or is an excuse, but every Monday seems to ring in with a hue bang... Literally I mean a slap in he face from one side or the other. Work, my personal life, diabetes life... Anywhere. I just feel so punched down, so early in the week, I don't know where to start. Aren't weeks supposed to begin on good notes, and then go downhill? I just want to crawl up in a ball and fall asleep. I know this is depression, but what else do you suggest? I dont… Continue

Baby steps

Posted on May 11, 2012 at 3:00am 4 Comments

Yesterday was really not a great day for me. Not that today was much more stellar, but a least the folks from Sales were nicer to me today!



So i remembered to test this AM, before I ate lunch, and I bolused or that too, 10 min late... That was about it. I was stressed to get stuff done at the end of the day (here come the excuses, move over reality) so I ate some candy, just 3-4 mini rolls and some yogurt at 5, but a least I remembered to bolts... 20min later!



Baby steps,… Continue

Can you help me, please?

Posted on May 10, 2012 at 4:00am 7 Comments

I think I might have jumped the gun on those goals I wrote yesterday. I am not so sure I can achieve them, all of them, even more than the first one. I know I "failed," YES, I "failed" today, yesterday, whatever day it is now. Can I really do this?



I am an excuse maker. Work is beyond stressful, I am bullied; clients want results I cannot produce; I have no support from management; I am doing 3 jobs at once (mine, parts of another guys job who left over a yer ago, and some of my… Continue

I was just reading something yesterday and they suggested not to use the word "testing" as in "testing your blodd sugar" They suggested using another word, like "checking your blood sugar". just because "testing" implies you're getting "graded" and perhaps we don't want to feel like we "failed" if the number isn't "good". (I also believe we should curb our tendencies to think of bg numbers as "good" or "bad") - anyway, it's just using a little psychology on ourselves. thanks for posting with us, you don't even know how many others out there you are helping.

Hi Felidia- Thanks for the friend add. I am honored to be your friend.

Felidia, congratulations on being featured on TuDiabetes. I think your excellent post hit a real nerve with many of us. Diabetes means we have to keep trying and each time we don't succeed can make it seem like failure. Don't let the darn disease get you down. And do please keep writing.

Congrats on being a featured member. That means you are one of our best. Keep on plugging.
