this is a ridiculous thread i’m sorry i read it
today i’m a little high but not so bad (like 160s) i am really annoyed that my doc didn’t answer me yet am i wrong?
ok so now i put the pump in a brand new place that i haven’t put it on in a while… i also stopped eating (allsgr8’s suggestion last time this happened but this time i wont eat at all) and changed isulin bottles and now it’s 118!!!! it’s the weirdest thing that it happened! emailed my doc (the only waty to get a hold of her….) and now waiting to see what she says cuz i know that as soon as i start eating it’s gonna go nuts!! i wonder if it’s a lack of sleep cuz i haven’t been sleeping well at all. i will iyh ask my doctor about that theory….. it’s crazy at times like this i HATE HATE this “thing” (i don’t want to call it a disease…) i guess we just have to daven that Hashem help us in controlling….
ok here’s my newest prblem….for the past few days i have been having very high blood sugars, and nothing i do will bring it down. i feel like i am resisting the insulin. i have been bolusing extra for the carbs i eat, i put a temporary basal rate (+15%) and changed my pump ( a few times already…). for example, last night i went to bed at 95 (the only good number for the day) i woke up at 315. i corrected 12 units instead of the 8 it normally would have needed. i had an eggwhite for breakfast (which normally i wouldn’t need insulin for) and a coffee. i bolused 6 units for that instead of the 3 i normally take, yet when i tested 3 hours later my sugar was 271!! i feel like i am resiting the insulin and i’m afraid it’s just going to drop very low when my body decides to accept all the extra insulin i am taking! this has been going on for a few days! (yesterday was a high of 415!!!) what am i supposed to do? do you have any idea what is wrong???
me too so how do we do that?!?!?!?
chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate!!
maybe the mods could give us eachother’s email address and we could just be ion touch that way….
i wish we cld get a hold of eachother too! i think it would be nice to have friends that really understand what we go through! oh well i guess this will have to be enough for now
reb- BH!!!!! i’m so happy to hear that! funny how the virus manifested itself with the same symptoms….
allsgr8- idk why i don’t go i’m just not tthe type to go myself without a friend or family member i tend to be shy with new people and i’m not a good at socializing (spelling?) but they are supposed to be amazing!!
i didn’t know there was one.. but i’m not going anyways so i guess it doesn’t matter
this shabbos i was by my brother and my nephew was telling him about the parsha. he was saying how avraham was trying to get lot back from the kings. he said “they took sand and threw it and it turned into knives, arrows and spare ribs!” he said it so seriously that we could not stop laughing!!!
reb- that is understandable to me actuaaly (that you are more nervous) because you know how it is to live with diabetes and i’m syre you don’t want that for her…. she doesn’t know like you do so she’s prob not AS nervous!
keep us posted!
i think we all do… diabetics and non diabetics alike… doubt is part of life.
for me i doubt that anyone can “accept” it though there’s nothing to be accepting. i also feel like no one will be able to help and understand as my mother can because she’s been there the whole time.. idk the whole shidduch thing is hard enough without diabetes
haha allsgr8 you read my mind i was thinking the same thing!October 14, 2010 5:16 pm at 5:16 pm in reply to: Hashem talks to you every day, how to see Hashgacha pratis #701675
AinOhdMilvado- you’re very right thank you for pointing that out!!
i teach first grade and the way we learn new words is i put the words on the board and then say a sentence and they have to put the correct word in the sentence. one of the words was “lemonade” the sentece was “my dad sips_______ from a glass” to which one of my boys called out “BEER!!!” i couldn’t stop laughing!!
Frumladygit wow i got the chills! very well said
i’m also really nervous about pregnancy but when i asked my doc abt it she said that diabetics usually have a safer and healthier pregnancy than others because they’re so controlled. you work with a nutrtionist and are very closely monitored and then there is no reason why we can’t have as many kids as we like…. it’s just a scary thought because it is unknown to us! i think we just have to do our best and trust Hashem…
i wish that everyone i love and all of klall yisroel will always be safe and happy
the only coffee i drink is decaf and i don’t drink soda ever so i don’t really have any caffine in my system late at night when i want to sleep
my last a1c was 6.7. thats very good for me my doc was very pleased! i was very proud and shocked it was that low i made them double check. because for some reason as good and in control i am i can’t get it lower. the main thing is that we try our hardest and i definatly am!
says who- what are these pills called? are they over the counter or do you need a perscribtion?
i used to be like what you described and one day i “woke up” (no pun intended) and realized that i have no excuse not to daven! if i want Hashem to answer me and give me all i want, and after i realized all Hashem does for me i was ashamed of myself! how could i sleep when Hashem is waiting for my tefilos! since then i try my best to allow myself enough time to daven wih good kavana. i wish i could say i go to shul every week but i can’t (yet) i hope i could work on myself and make up for the times i missed!
i have a lot of trouble sleeping, both falling asleep and staying asleep… i tried everything.. my friend told me she heard that if you say Perek kuf lamed gimmel (133) in tehillim you will fall asleep in a few minutes and stay asleep… i have yet to try it.. has anyone ever heard this??
popa i think they were refering to Niagara falls in Canada?
i get such issues with certin medications it’s the weirdest thing! i wonder why that’s only me….
i have a dell and i’m happy with it….October 8, 2010 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm in reply to: Hashem talks to you every day, how to see Hashgacha pratis #701659
all such beautiful words!!!!
i have a story which really opened my eyes to this fact… they say that on your hebrew birthday Hashem answers your Tefilos so of course on my birthday i davened for a lot of things including a shidduch. the NEXT DAY i get a phone call from a Shadchan telling me she has someone. it ended up not being for me but i hung up the phone and i cried because i felt like Hashem was talking to me saying “don’t worry I didn’t forget….” since then i try very hard to notice the “small” things in life that Hashem helps me with… ie: i drop a lense and i manage to find it… or i manage to get a spot in front of the place i need to go etc!
i think it’s important to realize that Hashem does EVERYTHING for us no matter how small it may seem!
just to clarify… i am not talking about any specific person here i was jst talking to a friend about yom kppur and how it feels good to be “clean” then we gpt into a discussion about if we are ever really clean and this topic came up so i was wondering what people thought.
artchill-thanks for the clarification but i meant working on the middah that MADE the person do the avayra in the first place ie: jealousy, pride, anger etc. i probably should’ve writen that.
what if the person did not hurt anyone but Hashem and themself and no one knows what they did….
thanks everyone your suggestions and advice were much appreciated!! i did what all of you said and now i’m only a little high as opposed to really high! now lwt’s hope the anibiotics don’t make it go up more… does anyone ever have problems with medications other than insulin? generic brands of everything make me crazy!!
health-no reason to go to ER forbstrep throat but thanx
forever1- i did 10%increase u think thats enough? i don’t wanna do too much higher cuz im scared of lows
help i am getting sick and my numbers are going out of control! they always do when i am coming down with something….. i hate it cuz it always makes me feel worse than i already do? i can’t get my numbers down! anyone have any advice??
thats the best thing to do! i do it all the time too =]
BOSD maybe it’s a bad batch of insulin? check for keatones!
for me it’s the opposite.. i always feel horrible when it’s the sligghtest bit high (the higher it gets the worse it is..) but a lot of times i only start feeling low a tiny drop [like i would think it’s in the low 80s…] and it’s very low like in the 50s!! it’s really scary because i really think it’s not that low…. i learned to always test my levels the second i start feeling not completely perfect….
i had same problem before i was diagnosed mosh3
sandpaper mouth for me is when levels get realllyy high so i get reeeeeeeaaaaallly thirsty that my mouth feels heavy and gross!!!
i don’t eat honey because i just don’t like it (its just sooo sticky!!!!!!)so i dont have th extra sugar problem!
and sometimes drinking water with sandpaper mouth just doesnt help does anyone find that?? i hate that feeling!!!
i think cell phones are good with BASICS only.. meaning incoming and out going calls… it helps people feel safe.. but then add texting and internet on the phone along with all the other ‘mishagas’ i think it’s gone too far! people (including myself unfortunately…) can’ go two seconds without their phone! i hate that about myself and i am working very hard not to be so dependant on it!!! it’s really not easy in this day and age!!
health-i’m definately npt the type who does nothing i do as much as i could… eat right, exercise daily, bolus correctly, go to the doctor every 3 months etc…. i do my hishtadlus…. i was just saying Hashem decides because i wanted people to stop argueing about genetics… (and while were on the subject….i happen to believe that there is a lot of genetics involved in diabetes and i would NOT marry someone with it because i don’t want this life for my kids.. but i also know that it doesn’t come ONLY from genes as i do not have any one in my family from either side for generations back, that had any form of diabetes, type one, two or gestational. but i do think genes do have an feect to some extent so i don’t think a blanket statment can be made as to if it is or isn’t hereditary, we’ll never know the truth so that is what i meant by my comment about Hashem. and if you re read my comments you will see that i never claimed in any way shape or form that we don’t have to do our part, and if i did please point it out to me so i could corrrect my mistakes..)
BOSD oysh thats the WORST!!! mustve been so so hard!!! i don’t know what i would’ve done!
health- i don’t understand why you feel the need to be mean about everything.. could be you were joking (it’s hard to tell in typing) but i did not find it funny and i just want to say i’m beginning to take offense from you it’s really not fair…. now i’ll let it go because i’m trying to work on myself….
BOSD i 100% agree with you and if i recall i never said we shouldn’t do our very best i was just trying to make everyone stop going sooooo deeply into genetics! i’m sorry if you took it the wrong way but trust me when i say i know we have to do our best!!
over yomtov i foumd it really hard to estimate how much to bolus at each meal therefore i was on a roller coaster.. too high then too low etc. after 4 meals i had enough and ate salads and low carbs i can’t deal with another set of 6!!!!!
my statistic..100% of all people with diabetes got it because the Ribono Shel Olam decided that they should have it… PLAIN AND SIMPLE!!!!
why are you people still arguing???? you know youre not gonna come to an agreement!!! PLEASE move on!!
here is my opinion on this whether anyone wants to hear it or not…. we will never agree whether it is genetic or not because there is NO way we will EVER know… Hashem decides who gets it not science, not genes, not anyone but the Creator of everything Himself!!! so can we please stop argueing (right after Yom Kippur i might add…) and move onto something that can actually help us? because even if we can agree on if it is hereditary or not.. it won’t help anything! please everyone can we move on???
oysh i’m so sorry rebbitzen… i know it’s sooooo hard on yom kippur!!! i messed myself up because when i tested right before the fast it was 301 so i gave correction but i forgot that it was right after the seuda so i drank ,some juice right before but i still had too much insulin in my system i was so scared… it sropped really quickly i had to suspend all insulin delivery for 4 hours (not all at once but 4 hrs total) at night then jst did a temp basal for rest of day.. at the very end it was 71 but at that point it was ok to wait till havdala… it was very nerve wracking i’m happy it’s over!! (now lets see how long it takes to get back to normal…)
i dont doub there are boys with diabetes but i find it funny that we’re all girls here…..i am looking for a working boy who is kovia itim (ie: a shuir etc)someone who is “with it….” i don’t know if i would marry a boy with type one…. do you think it would make the chances for my children to have it if BOTH parents have it?? if there is no chance then i would have NO PROBLEM marrying someone with it… cuz i know that there is nothing wrong with it i just wouldn’t want to bring that on my child… am i making any sense????
lol allsgr8 it’s just funny to me that i never heard a biy having it it’s a bit weird to me……
health-i’m not sure ALL type one diabetic cases are genetic though i did hear that theory…. i happen to be the only one in my (quuite large) extended family who has it… and i’m talking about from generations back. though i do know a 9 year old girl who’s father has it (hey another man with it…….. i forgot about him lol) so that is a proof to your theory as well =)
