Diabetes and me!


Yes I know! We are shit at updating our blog ๐Ÿ™‚

I am usually an upbeat, happy, positive person, I usually don’t let things get me down too much. I smile easily and often (though I do have resting bitch face). The last few weeks or a little longer I have been beating myself up mentally! I do not see too many blogs where people speak honestly about how they are feeling about health issues or personal issues and whilst I am usually a very private person – especially about diabetes! I am going to be as honest as I can be about how I feel, the changes that are happening, the food I am eating, the effects it is all having on me. I.am.going.to.be.accountable!

I hate diabetes!
I.effing.hate.it!!!!
I hate the constant finger pricking!
I hate the constant high sugar levels!
I hate that I ignored it and pretended it didn’t matter!
I hate that I did the wrong thing for so many years!

Change! That’s what it is all about now, change of medication, change in diet, change from bad foods to good foods, something I should have started many many years ago. I didn’t! My bad! Big time my bad!

I have gone from taking tablets to taking tablets and insulin – I also hate that ๐Ÿ™‚ Since going on insulin I have gone from my highest of 23.1 to my lowest so far of 8.2 which happened this morning, I started insulin on 15/6/2016. It is a craptastic photo but you get the idea ๐Ÿ™‚

Gone are the lollies, chocolate, chips and other crappy junk, soft drinks went long ago though occasionally they make their way back into our fridge! I prefer to drink water these days.
I have started making healthier choices, I just need to start making things from scratch with healthy product ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I made date balls and strawberry balls. OMG so good, no sugar! (well except from the fruit itself) winning! Strawberry Balls Recipeย here
