I'm new here and hope to get some advice and encouragement. I'm a type 2, just started insulin, on 45 grams of carbs all as of 10/5. I know I have to be strong and keep looking ahead, but today I only had a medium sized pear for breakfast on my way down the road. i tested before I ate it and I was good— 120, I tested 2 hours later and bs was 254. I barley ate a thing, a pear. I drink all the time and try to fill up on water. I know this is battle, that I must win. I guess i'm just frustrated.
So, often I have put everybody in front of me. But, now I seethat right now, with diabetes, nobody is going to save me from drowning in high blood sugar, but me. I am the only one with in my close family, friends, and work to have this, so some times people don't understand. They think it's just a matter of will power or being lazy.
This is when I feel like I am fighting with my own body. It always in my head. " to eat or not eat." Everything I put in my mouth can send me out of control. I was told this might happen, due to my body stealing sugar from other areas, b/c it's not use to having so little. So, I'm trying to give myself time to adjust.
I still feel a bit hungry after my meals. I try to drink water or just eat some nuts or a pudding cup. It will be hard for me next week, I'm on vacation and I have a birthday coming.
So, wish me luck in my battle (with my own mouth) LOL. And any tips would be nice.
