I was diagnosed with Diabetes about 8 years ago. I have a very bad focus problem and can not stick to a diet and have a very short attention span. Hence no diet,sometimes diabetes meds and heart meds etc. I simply don't accept Diabetes as a reality and it is not at all a priority. I do not have any side effects but sugars are very high. Fasting one morning was 490, dizzy and very tired but I heal fine when I get injured or operated on etc. so it does not seem real or important. I am a Nurses
Aide so I know it is not good but it does not seem to penetrate my brain. I try to fix a meal but can not focus to finish it. I end up somewhere else in the house doing something else than back to the kitchen , then over to the phone. Supper burns because I forgot all about it and so on. It is impossible for me to help myself I feel. Have others been in this spot mentally and emotionally. I also take care of a Diabetic Father.Also I have congestive heart failure so they took away my salt making it impossible to balance low sugar and 0 salt. I can not afford a dietician (Had one I loved) as Blue Cross only allows a few visits for Diabetes but with my learning problem and focus problem I lose all motivation after the first 10 days.Any suggestions?Please do not bawl me out. I take care of that myself .
