Staying Positive

Well yesterday did not go as planned. My dr is almost certain I have type 2 diabetes. Will know for sure next week after all the blood work. Since I didn't fast yesterday, Monday morning will be all the blood work, then to the gyno. Well at least that would shed some light as to why I am so tired all the time.

He also wants to give me an epiduram(sic) to help with the pain in the hip and lower back. Here I thought if I just give up the sugar and bad carbs, I would never have to go through what other family members are with the diet, pills, or injections. I have to keep a journal of my blood sugar, morning and night and try to get away with a diet change. I am only 5'1", weighing 132 and I have been dealt with enough, but I know God knows what He is doing. As Mother Theresa has said many times----"God thinks I am strong, but I wish He didn't trust me so much".

So please keep me in your prayers---not sure if I can handle diabetes. On that note, I am going unpack pots and dishes and find something healthy to eat. Love Ya, Pat

I always said I couldn't handle diabetes, but was diagnosed with it in 1992. It took a while to get used to all the changes in lifestyle and there are times when old habits still try to work their way back into my life.

If you do have diabetes, I will be glad to help in any way I can - sharing recipes, praying, listening and encouraging. Diabetes is not the end but instead a beginning of a more healthy lifestyle. I will keep you in my prayers.

Hugs and blessings,

Thanks for all the encouragement.
Mary, I already get injections in my hips and the thought of yet another medication scares me. My daughter is taking me to a homopathic dr. in May when I go to visit her. I do eat healthy and that's why this is so scary. Hugs, Pat
