Okay, so here’s the deal…
I’ve been going on this roller coaster ride with this stuff for a long time now. Just recently I ran out of strips (before I was lucky enough to win some on the “world in your hands” giveaway [week3])…well, it had actually been months without strips. Now mind you. I have been diagnosed as going through the honeymoon phaze of type 1 (not fully diagnosed yet because they say my pancreas is still spittin’ occasionally). Well, my husband owns his own business yet we are FOREVER broke (save that for another day of venting).
My levels have been jumping so fast lately between 50-180. not much hight fortunately, but since we have no insurance, money, a car, extra funds stashed away somewhere; I’m forced to deal with this crap. I’ve gotten to the point where I seldom tell my husband when I’m feeling horrible because I don’t want to here, “well, what am I suppose to do about it? We HAVE NO MONEY!!!”. I’m going crazy.
Now, I’m embarrased to share some of my most recent symptoms but here we go (please help):
urine is very dark and foggy (been going on for months)
strong amonia smell (also, for months)
fast swinging BGs (sometimes as much as 100 points in a thirty minute time frame; up or down)
Keytones in the urine even when my BG is 140 and below (most of the time showing moderate to more)
irritable most days
smoking like a banche…(cigarettes, sorry, a very bad vice, but too stressed to quit…I was on a medication that was helping me quit, but my husband never went back to get the new months prescription, again, that’s for another day’s venting).
Tops of my feet burn and are red after a shower (they itch and get really red; don’t know if this is any relation to what’s going on, but thought I’d mention that too).
There’s more if I sat and analized, but this is what I have for now. What is wrong with me? Would someone help?
