Rough time between Bipolar and Fibromyalgia and Diabetes


I am having reactions to diabetes meds and last one landed me in the hospital ER for dehydration, low magnesium and diarrhea and vomiting. Having a rough time lately.

All I do is sleep now that I stopped the antidepressant Paxil. It wouldn’t let me sleep.

Sugars are high again. Back to my old medicine and trying to clean this weekly injection out of my system. It sent me to the ER. I had 2 bottles of liquid and a bottle of magnesium.

Almost threw up in the ER 3 times. Holding it down was unpleasant, but throwing up is even nastier.

New diabetes pen has sugars all over…


It is called Tanzeum. I was wrong with the name the other day. They decreased my oral meds and said it will take a couple of weeks to settle down. I was only 74 the other day than today it was 159. Crazy.

Got my new diabetic shoes. Took forever. The smallest pair is too big for my feet. She had to rig them to fit.

Ask for What You Want from the Lord!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 7:11 NLT

“How much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask Him.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not only does He help you pray, but He will show you what to pray to remain on His path for your life. God wants you to know his will. He is more motivated to show you his way to your path than you are.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Thank you for loving, protecting and providing for me.

Amen

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you! I Corinthians 6:23

Happy Mother’s Day! New Diabetes Pen!


I couldn’t take the Victoza daily pen, sugars too low and no appetite. So I went back on oral meds only. Sugars rose at night, but were fine in the morning then all of a sudden they started rising in the morning too.

Went to my Endocrinologist Friday and now I have a once weekly pen which is called Tambien I believe. Very difficult to set up to take. Huge directions to follow.

I got it ready and took it. It didn’t hurt, but my sugars were really high that night and I had very little carbs. This morning woke up feeling lightheaded and shaky. My sugar was low, only 74. Grabbed some applesauce and then retook it and it was 125, much better. I might have to take a snack at bedtime every night to avoid this, but then again it is a weekly dosing pen and may not act that way all the time. I need to watch the trends. The good thing is my appetite is back. Thank you God! I have been praying over this situation.

He Died on the Cross for Us

by Teresa Smeigh

Seek Me with All Your Heart

Jeremiah 29:13  You will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find me when you search for Me with all your heart.

~~~~~~~

A commitment to spend time with God is as serious a commitment as any we will ever make.

The quality of our lives is affected by the time we spend with Him.

Do not become slack in the time you spend with Him because you know he is always available. Make him your priority.

~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

I am sorry for the times that I do not make you a priority in my life and do other non-important things. I shall make a commitment to spend time with you every day.

In the Lord’s name I pray,

Amen
