Hello lovely blog readers,
I'm sorry its been so long again but I haven't wanted to update lately. First of all I want to say a big huge thank you to everyone for reading my blog and for the lovely comments I've recieved. I honestly can't say how much I love reading them and how much it means to have all your good wishes and thoughts. Whenever I am notified of a new comment it makes me smile :)
Please do keep reading. Until recently I thought that only a couple of people actually read this blog but I'm starting to realise that there are probably more of you than i think! For those of you that don't leave comments please consider doing so, no pressure, but if you do fancy it, its really straightforward and anyone can do it. Just click "comment" at the bottom of each post :)
This last week has brought some not so good news. To cut a long story short in 2006 i was on some medication that made my blood sugar levels go too high and became diabetic for a while. I injected for a a time but it really was too much for me as I hate needles and was just one step too difficult. I was then changed to tablets which controlled my sugars until they calmed down enough for me not to need treatment any more.
I still check my sugars once a week to keep an eye on them and they are ususally fine, however I have started to have some slightly higher readings. I'm now keeping a closer eye on them and have started the tablets again.
This has made me quite upset and stressed which in turn is probably not helping me very much. I'm not keen on doing my finger pricks and am pretty worried that over time things could escalate to needing insulin again. It is just something I will need to monitor but that I dont need on my plate right now.
On the positive side, controlling my sugars means that I am at less risk of infection (as the bacteria feed on sugar) and it may be they will return back to normal in time. Fingers crossed.
I have been in a very bad mood this last week and have had a big row with my family which isn't good. Things have calmed down a bit now though so hopefully I will keep my cool more easily.
Not much else to report. I will update again soon when I have some additions to the wish list :)
take care xxxxxxxxxx
