I have been very tired ..put it down to feeding Jovee and lack of iron
Depression crepping back
But the big sign I couldn’t ignore …. Blurred vision, when that happened I knew
I just knew
I had none of these symptoms when preg but being a nurse … I knew.
I decided to convince myself I was wrong
I did some home self finger pricking .
First 7.4 touch high but wouldn’t right home about it
Two hours after meals 10.4 ok so now I am thinking girl u were warned.
Fasting one when I woke 7.4…..really it should be under 4
For where I like it.
Oh man ..now I have to go to the dr, now I have to have that stupid two hour test that makes .me faint.
Now I have to admit I have it and I am still depressed
Far out nothing goes smooth …this past month has been the month from HELL …first B ‘s diagnosis, then sister in law finds lump and it is cancer …then this ….seriously
My Dr is retiring in Dec so I find myself a new Dr she specializes in depression and hormones, si I go see her
Drag Ross along….have a panic attack but Dr says yep diabetes ….bit I don’t need u to do two hour test just a blood test …sounds good to me…results on Tuesday.
I have to go back to counting carbs which is hard to do with points.
Dr is sending me to a dietician as well…
At least this explains why I don’t lose weight.
Insulin helps break down carbs which is what ur body uses first , then protein then fat.
My body isn’t using the insulin right and it isn’t giving enuff to break down carbs ..so I am eating carbs bit not using them .. therefore never getting to use up the fat that is why I wont /don’t lose weight.
So I guess it is a blessing.
It is reversable so if I lose weight and exercise I can become non Diabetic again.
Reckon God is telling me something don’t you?
