You are joining a very non-elite club! I am in constant pain due to a lot of other stuff too (besides the diabetes). Believe me, it wears on you … both mentally and physically. It’s true, the strain of a lot of pain can not only increase your BG numbers, it can also contribute to depression. In turn, depression can contriute to your BG numbers!
It’s HELL and I don’t want to be here. But I guess I have NO choice. It’s in my body and not terribly likely that it’s going to be irradicated. Each day is a new day and I can chose to face it one of two ways: Either not accept the situation for what it is or to accept it and make the best of it. Make lemonade if I have to!
We’re here for each other. In fact, I STILL need some positive mental attitude development support. Just the other day, I had some really disappointing news and went on a weekend eating binge that did nothing to keep my A1c down! It wasn’t necessarily eating TOO MUCH, but WHAT I ate. Cake and sugary frosting, pasta, garlic bread. Oh stop! I’m getting hungry for them all over again!!
Well, just write when you feel like it and visit my home page if you want to leave a message that I’ll be sure to notice. My home page is no great shakes because I am not a techno geek. Am barely getting by now!!
