Sigh

So I had a little cupcake about 5 hours ago and I just feel so sad. So I really do think my sugar is messing with my emotions. Gonna go on Amazon and get some test strips so I can check my sugar.

I need a life/love coach.

go to CVS or Walgeens, much quicker to get stips to check your sugar. If you are serious about fixing your blood sugar you wanna fix it NOW and not in 3 days when it can damage that many more of your capillaries. I forgot the statistic (you can google it) but for every day your blood sugar is out of range you kill like how many zillion cells. Like i said i've forgotten, but if i was a diabetic or even borderline i would know. why? because i dont want to kill ANY of my cells. we all get older quick enough and dont need to help our bodies into the grave, right?

that being said there's no rules saying you cannot have 'a little cupcake' once in a while, its all in proportion size and doing the right thing for your sugar the rest of the time which includes drinking enough water, exercising, and eating the right number of carbs/ veggies/ etc.

lots of websites can help you with this when you are serious, but i agree, we ALL need life/love coaches.
:D

Yeah I know it takes a few days, but I did order them from Amazon. I could have gone to walgreens but I tend to forget. Yeah I know its important but it happens

ok. so now that you know the number you need insulin and a sliding scale so you can give yourself the right amount, right??

either your doctor or the local ER can hook you up with that stuff. if you have a doc he will write a script or just call it in to a local pharmacy, if not you can go to an ER and be seen by an emergency room physician. that doc can write you a script.

if you have no money for meds they can sign you up for emergency Medi-Cal (or whatever passes for it in your state, i forget where you live) and they will pay for your meds initially.

i'm glad you took the initiative to take care of yourself, i'm proud of you!! i was getting worried that you didn't feel like living or something which was why you were ignoring such a serious condition.

take care, you are YOUNG.
