I don't know what happened today. This morning took Metformin ER @ 8. I usually don't eat with it as it says because it never bothers my stomach and surely not like this.Not long after that I did my…Continue
I just starting counting my carbs yesterday. Phew!! It's killing me already. I did a low carb diet WAY back b4 I had any health problems.....maybe in my 20's? I did 60 carbs a day and I now have NO…Continue
Hi everyone....I wasn't sure exactly where to post this so I'm just doing it as a blog post.
I have been dealing with back pain (muscle cramping) since Feb 2nd!!! Last night was bad again.
I switched myself off of Levemir to Humalog Mix which I'm sure my doctor loved, but I HAD to try something or lose my mind!! It's still the same. I even went to Urgent care and they xrayed my back and it showed some arthritis in my spine between my shoulder blades but this is NOT…Continue
First of all I'd like to say that I very possibly got off on the wrong foot here. I am a very shy person until I get to know someone and then I tend to say things that are taken the wrong way....so I've been told all of my life..."it's not 'what' you say but how you say it...so if I've offended anyone here I'm very sorry.

WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Thank you Jesus!!! Just popped in…Continue
Medicare decided they weren't going to pay for my Levemir anymore and I had barely gotten started on it and was doing better. Bsl's were coming down very well as long as I behaved myself and I was/am trying very hard. Counting carbs and all. The letter said that my doctor could call Medicare and appeal their decision...but he never had anyone do it. He put me on Humalog Mix 75/25. I'm up to 45 units x 2 now and it is NOT working!! I'm hardly eating anything and certainly…Continue
