Post 252...

I meant to point out of my 250th post, but with the diabetes bs I forgot... This is actually post 252, but hey! Better late than never, right?!?!

I haven't felt much like talking the last few days. Kinda' just wallowing in the "poor me" feelings. Not real healthy I know. But, jeez, I poked myself EIGHT times Thursday morning, and couldn't get enough blood into the test strip for the test. And, that's using "the world's smallest needed sample" test kit... I wasted like 5 test strips and 4 lancets, and had myself so worked up by the 8th time that I was dizzy and naseous so I gave up and laid down for 5 minutes. It took 2 pokes and 2 test strips yesterday, and 1 today. Of course, with only minor adjustments to my diet (as the doctor didn't give me any new guidelines) my sugar went from 275 on the 17th to 245 yesterday and after 1 dose of the medicine to 216 this morning. I have to run though so...

Congrats on the 252nd post!!! That is alot of blog posts! LOL

Awww hun...I'm sorry you are having to deal with this blood sugar stuff. ((hugs)) I don't think I would be much good at poking myself either. It must be so frustrating. I'm glad tho that the numbers have gotten better. That is a great sign! I hope it continues that way.

Hope you have a good Sunday. :) The girls right now are getting ready to watch the Hannah 3d movie that is on at 8pm. They are parked in front of the tv right now...waiting patiently for 8:00 to come. LOL Atleast Brooke can tell time so she understands how much longer but Skye....OY! She is helpless. LOL

Hey girlie! Congrats on 250. Awesome number to hit. And love the pages. You must be on well over a 1000 since you started blogging.

Sorry to hear about the blood sugar, diabetes issues. I've been avoiding mine. Not good I know. Hang in there. I see that Fantacy sent ya some info. She's a great lady and is full of info. Hopefully it will help.

Hope you get those templates somewhere soon. :)
