i have been told, since i was in the hospital, that there are new highs and lows. 120 for low and 180 for high after a meal. will have the recheck next week. we will see if the new numbers work. very confusing to me. guess we have to do what our doctors tell us. huh? i can't tell exact numbers without out testing but do know when it really high or really low. am testing more often these days.

You are doing so well now. People don't realize how tough we have to be to get along.My dh use to tell me are you doing this or that. Would say of a friend on insulin, she cheats because she took extra insulin at times.It made me so angry that he would judge like that. So I asked and was told it was ok to take extra. But now that i'm have to use it I still cut out a carb and it works just fine.I cook for my family and we do well and we eat like others.
I wanted to ask, did you find out about salt in homemade bread? It seems to me,sine we are not eating a whole loaf at one time a small bit of salt should be ok. I leave out any sugar in the bread and foccafias I make add a little more yeast and it's good.

kades, i found a couple of recipes for bread with no salt. you are right about the amount. but burger buns, and premade biscuits have salt, so gotta find ways around it. i made pumpkin bread (in small pans) and left out the salt. seems fine. the filling with cream cheese had sodium and i thought that was enough. i love to bake, so will work around the sodium and sugar. i used splenda in the breads. part white and part brown. they are just wonderful. will use recipe again. i thought the salt slowed the yeast down. so if not there, would we need to add more yeast? sometimes it seems we must be chemists.

don't go by what i say. but the visiting nurse ,she is one that told me. i haven't been able to find info. on line. going to dr. next week and will see what he says.

i really wish you would find someone to guide you. should be a dr. or nurse that knows and helps you with treatment.you wouldn't have to go forever just till you are more comfortable with the rules , etc.

Hello everyone!!

I had an interesting day.

Adventure #1:

I had to completely take apart my electric pencil sharpener today. My girl sharpens those "grease" pencil type colored pencils in it even tho I have given her many of the little hand held to sharpen them in. Two problems - 1 -those greasy soft pencils are toxic to the electric sharpeners
2 - she never dumps the dang shavings hopper until it won't fit another fart in it and the whole inside is clogged!!


It stopped working and mom had to play doctor!!

1 - There was an entire tip of a grease pencil broken off in the blades.
the whole inside was greasy
2 - There was so much shavings stuck inside the works I had to bang, blow and cuss at it!!

It now works!!


Adventure # 2:

My girl and I took apart and inventoried my hall pantry.

I now have a spreadsheet listing - Product, Brand, Variety, Size, Quanity and the shelf it is on.

I will print it out and put it on the inside off the door.

I have 2 more closets/pantries to inventory (one is my spice closet).

And I am pulling an all nighter!!
