My 365...

Good Afternoon World!  :)

Can you say Hypoglycemia?  I now know what that is, and let me tell you, it is not a good thing!  I was struck with this frightening condition yesterday, and it is rather unsettling. Taking Diabetes medication without monitoring your blood sugar is not such a good thing, so it is back to sticking my finger several times a day.  I am happy about it though because going into a coma does not sound so delightful.  :P  It is a little strange that my doctor did not have me monitoring my blood sugar.  Hmmm...maybe it is time for a new doctor.

What I found to be so fascinating is that after I took my medication I knew something was not right with me at all.  I experienced a sudden wave of "OMG I need to lay down I can not keep my eyes open", and I was seriously craving orange juice so much so that Jack had to go get me some.  I am not even that particularly fond of OJ.  After I drank about 16 ounces I felt better.  Lesson here...your body knows what it needs, you only have to listen!  I am pretty sure the problem is that my dose of meds is too high, so no more until I can check my levels more frequently.

I feel great today!

On a lighter note, it will be fun having a foodie blog with healthy Diabetic safe choices.  I experienced gestational diabetes with my last three pregnancies, and I was on a very strict diet to manage my insulin.  It was the healthiest I had ever been, so this is actually a good thing.  See...there is a bright side to everything, you just have to open your eyes and look.

This blog has grown and changed into so many different things.  It started out as a simple "365", that turned into my online journal branching off to "Cooking fun", "Life after 50", "Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis", "Empty Nest Syndrome" and now healthy eating to manage Diabetes.  I think it is safe to say I am a happy mess!  LOL  Stay tuned!

Miss Lilly is not fond of thunder and lightning at all.

Music I am listening to today...Al Green.

Until next time..."Laugh as much as you breathe, and love as long as you live."
