Wow! I'm sorry to hear that... I hope you figure it all out... Yeah, I have changed my rates for when I workout and such... And yes, it a definite guessing game... But when no human is exactly like the other, I guess it makes sense. Best of luck and I hope you get it taken care of...
I too have noticed that my sugar levels seem to elevate but then drop soon after a class... It's really the night time around midnight where I get woken up from low bgs... It is kind of crazy... I'm just waiting to get on a normal schedule to really see how my body will react. I was just diagnosed last Sept. and the first in my family, so I guess I should play the lotto! LOL... Well, I hope you and your Endo figured out what was going on with your sugars? Was it just too intense for your workout? What about hormonal changes???
Hi Kelly I think I am a flaky online friend. Maybe it is just harder for me to keep track of people in the virtual world. Embarrassed to admit that I didn't even realize that you are my friend. Please don't hold it against me(I don't really think you would). I have seen it written in a paper mag about diabetes, Diabetes Interview that blood sugars do things without any reason. I think that the author was a M.D. but I don't remember. I do remember a flash of recognition of something that happens to me, all kinds of different "wonder why that happened, or didn't or whatever" Made me feel some better about the whole thing. Good Luck, Peace and happy spring. Thomas
Hi Kelly. Found a wonderful apartment for Pete, saw the sights, ate some good food at some interesting places, We will be going back to move him in the beginning of April. Lots of firsts for him ..... signing his first lease (that he has to pay for) got a Sears credit card (his first one) and charged a new mattress & box spring.Its a long drive but manageable except for a 2 day weekend. Thats why we stayed Monday too. His apartment is actually an old funeral home that was gutted and renovated. Large rooms and off street parking in a very active section of town with restaurants, clubs, sports bars etc all geared to the young professional. Although some of the buildings are very old .... from the 1890's. He seems happy with his choice and also had his job physical which was quite extensive. I will treasure these last 2 weeks with him at home.
Well the decision to get it was two-fold, this way i don't need to catch any grief anymore from Dr or family member for not alway wearing a medic alert bracelet/necklace etc. I figure if i'm in an accident there's no guarantee one of those would break and fall off of you anyways... The other reason is that it will be a daily reminder to me that i am diabetic and that it won't go away. As much as we would like to ignore it (and we all do from time to time) it is a part of my life so i might as well embrace it! Guess it only took me 15 years to figure that out... lol
Thanks for the thoughts on my blog. The frustration is kicking in, so I had to write it out. I keep trying to concentrate on the good things in life, but it's definitely been tough lately. I love to see people like you who have been living with diabetes & staying active & really setting a good example. Samantha is athletic, so that will help her, but this year it will be tough for her to get used to feeling different while she plays.
Well I had good parents and learned from them. I always believed with your kids ..... you get out what you put in. They need help and guidance I was not a creampuff Mom. They new good grades were expected. They did homework first before anything when they were little. The as they grew they got competitive. One would not want to do poor cuz he'd hear it from a sibling too,lol. My oldest & my youngest are very much alike despite a 9 yr difference. My oldest has a PhD in Clinical Pharmacology and is a research Scientist for Johnson & Johnson. My middle son is in sales & advertising and has blessed me with my only grandchild. They are my world. We are proud of them and pray everyday they stay happy & healthy. Hope you & ur family are well. We are leaving in the AM to go to Pittsburgh for the weekend in search of apartments.
