No carbs for me...cuz the nurse told me so

Wednesday, September 09, 2020

I’m having my PET scan tomorrow. Today I have to start the process. Little bit of carbs (what’s a little?) and NO sugar at all (what doesn’t have some kind of sugar in it?)........that tastes good.

It’s almost 3pm and I haven’t eaten since 8am. I wonder what my number is. It’s 2:52 in the afternoon, I haven’t eaten since 8 thirtyish and my number is 148. What is up with that? I take Januvia & Jardiance. With those and not eating you would think I’d have a lower number. Gah! I wonder if biscuits & gravy can stay in your system this long. It was so good 😊

I just ordered a Cobb salad so hopefully my numbers will stay there or even lower.

I never took diabetes as a serious problem. Even now, knowing I have diabetes I don’t really do anything different than what a person without diabetes does. It’s crazy. But I also do this with my cancer, I don’t treat it as if it’s serious. Same with the Parkinson’s. Is this denial?

Regardless of all that I know I need to do something, I just don’t know where to start that won’t overwhelm me.

    I suggest looking into a whole food plant based diet. It would definitely help with 2 of your health problems, if not all 3. If you don't pay attention to your health, who else will, my dear?
