This is not as ez as you would think. All the ajustments to basel rates,trying to get it right .Then you dont know if the wether afects the rate or not?I had to start a new log just to keep trak of the changes and what I eat "carbs"
And why is all the food I like is loded with carbs? lol And I love bread I am down to one slice of toast a day I miss it so bad.I would love to forget all this crap and go back to eating what I like but if I wish to live I got to keep strong and fight all thease erges and keet to what I know is right.There are days when I just whont to give up then I think of what life would be without a foot or a leg and I put the donut back and sey I dont need it right now.I go to eat a salad and look at all the good stuff to go on it and I know I cant have what I like too menny carbs lol I hate to tell me no but its the only way "O WELL"
I guss I best serve some cheese with all this wine lol
well thanks for reading this I know it was a downer I wish you all well I think we all go thrue down times

I know exactly what you mean. I to am on a pump, I use the animas ping. I have been on it for 3 1/2 months. I feel like a pro already. Except that combo bolus thing. LOL not brave enough to use that yet. HEHE.

Harlen,

How could anything you write be a downer? Everytime I read one of your posts I can't help but smile. You have a wonderful way of poking fun at yourself or a situation without being self depreciating.

We all can relate to what you're feeling and going through. Just keep telling yourself "no"… even though it's hard and a pain in the rear. And yes I would love some cheese… do you happen to have any provolone on you?

*hugs*

Just keep being the wonderful man and friend you are and keep trying you're best!

fondly,

Judi
