Frustrated

Posted on January 7, 2013 at 7:52am 16 Comments

It's been 2 months since my Type 1 diagnosis and I think it's really finally sinking in. I'm starting to realize that it's not just going to go away, despite the changes I've made, and I feel depressed at times. This morning I had less than 15 carbs, gave myself 1 unit (I am on a 1:15 ratio) and 2 hours later I was at 222! But a few days ago I ate the same thing at the same time, and gave myself the same amount of insulin and it was significantly lower, 150 or so. So frustrating!! Does this…

Hi Sista, I've been following your LADA post and noticed you expressed and interest in Dr. Bernstein so I thought I'd shoot you a link to the Bernstein group here in tuD. The old posts there are a great resource. Another you might like is the Low Carb Recipe Swap I've been low carbing (30 to 50 g/day) for 3.5 years and find I like playing around with recipes to keep things interesting and sustainable for the long term.
