A month ago I was told I have type 2 diabetes. I wanted to write about the mistakes I made in the begining of all this. I look bad on this and have to laugh something that you will have to learn very quick is to laugh and learn not o get upset of the little things..
I have read storys on here about the worrying would make your blood sugars go up. Little did I know it would make mine high atleast 50 points higher from worrying about my sugars!!!
In the begin I never asked questions on how much I was to test my blood sugar and I just assumed that they wanted me testing 8 times a day. Plus, I never kept my record of my sugar in a colum, Just wrote each time I tested and all I saw were theses munbers going all over the charts. Which in turn made me panic cuz I am so very scared of having to take insulin!!!
Last week my eye Dr called to see what my blood sugar was cuz we have been trying to get my yes tested, like the last 2 weeks have been it was high!! He asked that I go speak with my Dr about them being high.. I sat there in the room thinking (yep Cheryl you messed up and now you have to go on insulin!!) I even said crying when the nurse came in and was talking to me!!!
The Dr. came in and sat down explain the med I am on is working but that I needed to put my reading down on a piece of papre in colums not just write them down cuz all ya see is theses number but you dont see how muc it is coming down.. As for me testing 8 times a day I was told to stop and only test up to 4 times a day..
What I have learned from this is that always testing like that when it is high makes me panic and the stress from me panic made it even go higher!!
Before I stoped testing so much it was running in the 190's up and over well over 200!! Now the morning it was 127. I just wanted to share this with you all cuz I know there are others that are afraid to ask question and just want to do right!!!
Dont be afraid and ask alots of questions like my Dr. explain to me (This is my body and it is better to ask a question..)
And stress will cause the blood sugars to be higher!! Just food for thought everyone.. Be blessed and hang in there..
