So the whole, keeping my blood/sugar thing isn't going as well as I would like it to. And of course the meds the doctor has me on really needs something left to be desired. I found myself freezing my ass off the other day. The house was 71 and I'm an ice-cube. Then on top of it felt like I was walking on glass. Called the doctor only for them to tell me it's the diabetes. Well funny how that is.. I was actually running a bit low that day. So are you telling me that I'm going to feel worse the lower my blood/sugar gets? I ended up doing some online research about the meds I was taking. I mean the one I had no issues with but when I started taking the other. I just feel worse and worse. My sleeping is all out of whack again, my legs hurt, I'm tired all the time. I ended up not taking the second meds. I started to feel fine again. Told the doctor about my issues with the meds. They insisted it was my diabetes and the idea that I was off my second med was pure coincidence. A little more research and wouldn't ya know. Side-effects of overdose of my first meds are exactly what I have been feeling. I find out that most people on this med are taking it once a day at bedtime. Where I am taking it twice a day. Concerned? Yup I am. So I call the doctor back and explain my concern. They still have not called me back. I hate it when doctors don't listen. Give me a reason to take the meds? Don't just tell me shit I already know. Give me something. I can't feel worse and be expected to continue.
My new plan? Figure shit out on my own. Cause the meds make me sick. The checking my blood/sugar twenty thousand times a day is getting to be a pain, and my fingers can't take much more of this either. Obviously something needs to be done. My new plan? Raw food diet. The idea with diabetes is you need to eat more veggies then protein. Not so many carbs. Yadda Yadda Yadda. So a raw food diet just seems like the best step. For me anyways. I mean.. Can you really eat too many veggies? Doubtful. And with eating better comes loosing the weight which is also a factor of the diabetes.. SOOOO.. this just makes sense.
I started yesterday. Made home-made cole slaw. I adore cole slaw.. No one else in my family does. Which is a shame. I couldn't find cabbage at the grocery store. So I ended up getting those bags of pre-cut slaw mix. With the cabbage and carrots. Then you mix your own "dressing." I used Agate Nector, olive oil, dry mustard and lemon. Have to say it turned out really yummy. I think thats all I ate yesterday. Like I said. No one else likes it so I felt I needed to eat it before it went bad. I know, I just made it yesterday. Anyways. I also got a honeydew melon for Anthony. Corn, coconuts. All kinds of fun foods. The plan today is to make coconut yogurt. And then possibly a smoothie with that. I'll let you know how that goes. So far I have been able to keep my blood/sugar under 200. Which I realize is high.. BUT.. Considering what it has been lately. Thats awesome. Wish me luck!!
