If you don’t name a disease, you don’t have to claim it!!!!!!!!!!

I have low blood sugar. I choose to look at it this way. I am trying my darnest not to call it Diabetes. I’m choosing to take care of my health. This blog is my journey to living!

I went to a training yesterday, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I recognize that I have to take care of myself, however, to be told I have to go to all these lists of doctors that will add to the disease. Yes, I will keep an eye on my eyes and not walk barefoot. That will be rough. I’m always walking barefoot! I’ll Watch for infections. This is something you should do anyway.

Right now I’m trying my best to keep my blood sugar down by healthy eating and living. When I looked into the book they gave me that listed all the drugs that I could possibly take. It cured me of putting a piece of cake in my mouth. The side effects were downright scary. Starting with weight gain. Stomach problems. No wonder you lose weight on that one. It gives you stomach problems.

My biggest hurdle is not eating emotionally. Having been only 1 month since my son passed. Gives me a justified reason for some good chocolate. However, learning how to live is now more about having emotions and not punishing my self in the process. I’m open to any insight!!!!

Healthy Eating!

I found this little tidbit on the web or facebook. But I thought it was kind of handy to have around. This past year I was diagnosed with diabetes and I am trying my best to treat it with healthy eating. I hate measuring and this whole thing is a trial and error. But this is part of being the alive plan. Any great ideas are welcome!

I know most of what I have to do. Again, it is doing it! Water, exercise, etc. But give me some stress and bring on the chocolate. I have changed that a bit. Not quite doing celery instead yet. But little by little.
