Hi @lindijanice and welcome to the forum. Good to see you posting to your secret online boyfriend!
I was lucky to find this forum so soon after diagnosis. I was in the hospital hospital with very high blood sugar about 2 months ago. When I came out I was lost, and scared. I'm working really hard to get things under control because I don't want to be sick like that again. I love chatting with the people here, there's a ton of information, and everyone is friendly.
While I was in the hospital I met my endocrinologist. She was one of the doctors on call. She was able to see, and evaluate me there. She also agreed to take me on as a patient, which helped expedite my follow up appoint with her. She is the nicest doctor I have met. She recommended the Libre for me, which is proving to be a valuable tool since it lets me see my spikes and where I might do things differently. Diabetes isn't fun, but I truly believe like you said that now is the time for me to start tackling it, as there is so much that seems to have been placed on my path to help me.
Oh yes I hope so
I confess that initially after my stomach troubles were diagnosed (5 years ago) finding foods and experimenting has taken a time to work out for me. I was never holding much weight anyway and struggles did get quite dire...
Only good advice from my gastro really got me through it.. I got to the point that I couldnt do food shopping as it invloved aisles of food that I could not eat.
Changing my thoughts was necessary.. 1) buying myself better treats 2) and most importantly.. recognising that after I had passed by certain aisles alo thoughts of those foods were gone within 5 seconds.
I had to go low fibre and pretty much mushy veg only but did find I could eat a luxury cream eclair without probs.
Only experimenting has now actually enabled me to put two stone back on and up to a size 10 again.
I lnow you mention weightloss and if you have more to lose then you will succeed!! Its been a huge battle for me to get weight back on!!
Thanks, @Prem51! Nice to add you to my list
Hello @donnellysdogs! That eclair sounds divine!! Congrats on the two stone weight gain - is a stone about 14lbs? Yes, I need to heed your advice and change my thinking completely when shopping for groceries. I find much fiber is a problem too, so will add that to the list to work out for my menus! Blessings/L
