Good Day everyone. My day,Thursday, ended rotten. It has been raining all day and I discovered that my roof has a leak. So we spent the night with a bucket under it. Landlord came and patched it this morning. The roofing guys can't come till next week, so hopefully the patch will hold.

But I can to DC and got a good laugh from Pat, so hey it turned out to be a good day after all.

Hope all of you had, or have a good day.

This afternoon it is very cold and it feels like snow. My number for lunch was great. It was 99. After my late night number of 400 something I am thrilled it when back to normal. Hopefully I will be able to keep the good numbers coming.

ferk01 2010-01-28 06:35:12 -0600 Report

Good morning everyone, I woke up today with a number of 93 so hopefully the afternoon will be as good. It looks like snow here outside of Philadelphia so I might be able to see a beautiful landscape of snow.

ferk01 2010-01-27 19:33:23 -0600 Report

My lunch time numbers 133 and my dinner was 212. I had to take off the pump for my aqua therapy so hopefully I will be back tonight with a good number.

BG 100 at 6:00 am. What could I be doing right? Even though I have to key with my left hand due to my cervical radiculopathy and the extreme pain it causes me. I guess having to continue to adjust my insulin due to that pain is somewhat helping today.

ferk01 2010-01-27 02:20:02 -0600 Report

Although it is only 3:00 am in Havertown my sugar is 103. i am not able to sleep so I am up watching tv and thought what the heck why not check what my bg is in the middle of the night. Hopefully, at breakfast time it will be as good as now. I hope everyone has a great day.

AddassaMari 2010-01-26 12:01:29 -0600 Report

It is a glorious day here in Central Texas. The sun is shining, a light breeze is rustling through the leafless branches, saw a cardinal this morning…It is beautiful day here. Hope it is as beautiful a day for all of you also.

ferk01 2010-01-26 03:56:58 -0600 Report

It is 5:00 am here in Havertown, Pa and I woke up with a bg of 88. I am not sure why sometimes when I do not sleep I have a high bg but other days i have an average bg. It is a question I put out to my friends. Does anyone else share the same issue?

salmanda 2010-01-26 16:45:34 -0600 Report

I have heard that if we don't get 7-8 hours sleep a night it can affect our bg levels. Maybe that is why?

ferk01 2010-01-25 12:44:43 -0600 Report

well somebody must be looking over me. My mid afternoon sugar is 124. My neck and shoulder are in extreme pain but somehow my sugar is okay.

AddassaMari 2010-01-26 11:57:16 -0600 Report

Yippieee on the good BG,

Ouch on the neck pain, I can relate to that. Try some moist heat for that. I have arthritis in my neck. When my neck and shoulders get board stiff, I find that a nice warm moist towel does wonders to ease the pain. The heat relaxes the muscles and eases the blood flow restriction.

ferk01 2010-01-25 04:50:55 -0600 Report

my morning blood glucose was 99. It has been a great 2 days. I do not know what the secret is but I hope it lasts for the day. It is pouring this morning so I will have to dream of a warm sunny day for Philadelphia.

cc9 2010-01-25 06:41:58 -0600 Report

think back over the last two days. write down step by step what you did from waking up. you might be able to find the common link and try it again and watch what the result will be.

AddassaMari 2010-01-25 12:02:56 -0600 Report

Great advice on back tracking, a bit like conducting an experiment you want to repeat. Start keeping records.

cc9 2010-01-25 02:02:56 -0600 Report

good evening everyone. my fasting bsl this morning was 98. yippee tomorrow is a public holiday - australia day. a day to get out and do some fishing. hope you all have a good day.

Good morning everyone,
A beautiful sunny day here in Maine, but bad weather predicted for tonight into tomorrow. Ice storm tonight changing to heavy rains all day tomorrow.
I'm going out to enjoy it today! :)

Your off to a great start good luck with the rest of your day. My bg wa 93 The sunrise here in RI was awesome. The ice fishermen were out before me drilling holes. My dogs were flipping mad. /tge sun has disapperdin the last half hour. Either give it back or send some snow.

Where do you live in RI? I have relatives that live there, and I go down often from Maine to visit them.

well my day out with all that not diabetic food was okay. After forgetting my meter and having a grilled reuben I actually came home with a bg of 163. what a shock. Maybe I am getting the hang of this diabetic thing.

I woke up with a bg of 139 lower than I thought. So with that great news I tried to workout on treadmill but pain in neck and shoulder too bad so I had to stop. I hope that little workout helps with numbers for the day.

Good morning everyone,
My BG yesterday after school was 167, my best in a long time. Last night it was 202 before bed, and this morning 237. I don't get it! I only had a salad for dinner, and a few bites of leftover veggies and turkey kielbasa. Nothing to drive the numbers that high. I feel like I can only get good numbers when I eat little or nothing! So frustrating!
Hmmm…sorry, maybe I should be on the "Piss 'n Moan" discussion.
Well, today is a new day, and I hope to get the morning number down to something more reasonable as the day progresses.
Have a great day everyone!
Sal :)

good evening all. the temperature in sydney has been around 36C and humidity around 80% today. had a short thunderstorm, like 10 mins and its gotten more humid. am going to tackle my house chores since its getting dark. have a good weekend all.

Well my night time number was much worse than the entire day. i am ending the day with a 324. Oh well maybe I will wake up with a better number

ferk01 2010-01-22 12:38:36 -0600 Report

I know what you mean about stress. My sugars always spike with stress. I am out on disability for a herniated disk in my neck and a frozen shoulder so stress is a given. I hope you can get your numbers down.

BeckyJ 2010-01-22 12:27:53 -0600 Report

The hits just keep on coming. Was feelin pretty good until I got the results from my eye exam. Now have Diabetic Retinopathy. Not so bad that I'm goin blind but enough to add to the stress. Even more important that I keep the sugars under control though. Had a 109 fasting but then it shot up to 300 after I got the news. Have to get it back under control with lunch. Time to meditate. ooommmm.

jayabee52 2010-01-22 17:51:22 -0600 Report

That must be frightening! And the stress didn't do you any good either. Praying you get BGs under better control. So far my retinopathy hasn't progressed in the 2 yrs since first Dx'd. So with good control we'll both keep our sight!

salmanda 2010-01-23 06:43:28 -0600 Report

That must be so scary Becky! Stress, stress, and more stress. Life just seems to keep us all stressed out.
I pray you get your numbers under control so that your retinopathy doesn't get worse.
Take care,

becky, please take care of yourself. managing your sugars and stress better will help prevent further deterioration.

Yahoo My sugar at lunchtime was 110. I might be doing something right. We will have to see how my evening number is before I toot my horn.

I am glad that today is Friday because it has been a long week even though only 4 days. Looking forward to the weekend. No plans, just volunteering at the library and church so far…may keep it that way.

Well I woke up with a bg of 207. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to why one morning my bg is great and another not so great. I try to do the same thing every day. Well hopefully my mid-morning test will be a little lower. I hope everyone has a great day.

Update on Dee. She called me yesterday and she goes in today at 2:30 to have her port put in surgically and then she starts her double chemo on the 25th. She knows it will make her so sick but she said mom the radiation did same thing and I made it. But for first time she will lose her long blonde hair but she knows it will grow back. Keep prayers going as it is going to be a long 5 months and I will keep you all updated. Thank you all, Kathy

salmanda 2010-01-21 16:33:02 -0600 Report

Hi KAthy,
Thank you for the update. I pray your daughter does as well as she can with the chemo. I have never had to go through that, thank God. I can't even imagine. I have had friends have chemo and radiation, but not double! It really is good they are being so aggressive because it needs to be booted right out of her!
You are both in my thoughts and prayers.
Sal :)

This isn't too bad of a Thursday morning as my BS was only 90 so it is where I want it to be. Next step is starting take test 2 hours after dinner. I will keep you posted as first time my Dr. wants me to do that. A little overcast here but winds been kicking up kind of hard all night. My surgical knee kept me awake quite a bit last night and couldn't get pain under control but a little bit better now. Did too much exercise yesterday but got to do it to keep it straight and bending - no pain no gain. Seems more pain right now than anything else but it will get better. Will work with phys. therapist probably more next week as my in-home is done today. Will keep you guys posted. You all have a good day. I appreciate all of your support. Kathy

ferk01 2010-01-21 06:40:46 -0600 Report

well I will put my reply where it should be put on the site. I am still new. I woke up to a blood sugar of 64 in Havertown Pennsylvania. I ate alittle more breakfast than I usually do due to the low but hopefully I will have a good number at lunch time. I hope everyone has a great day.

Good Morning ferk,

Hope you get that BS up to a normal level soon… Mine this morning was 150, so I have been working really hard to get it down…LOL. It's a never ending job, isn't it???? I think I need to go to the Piss N Moan thread…I woke up in that mood this morning…But, it is raining here this morning, and is really yukky outside, so I don't want to do anything but go back to bed, cover my head, and stay there all day…Maybe I will call my sister, she always has a lot of pissing n moaning to do, maybe hers will get my mind off mine…LOL

Everyone have a WONDERFUL day…:) Sue

ferk01 2010-01-21 12:15:15 -0600 Report


What part of the country are you from? I am from Pennsylvania. I think I would be on the Piss N Moan thread most of the time while dealing with this crappy disease but I really try to be positive if at all possible. Thanks for your reply. My sugar at lunch was 177 so here we go trying to lower the number. It never ends.
