Blood Sugar Starting To Drop


I took it this morning and it was just 149. Yesterday’s was 185 and the day before 177, and the day before that was 200. The medicine seems to be working. It still might need some tweaking, but I am seeing progress.

The hardest part is not eating when I wake up in the middle of the night. I always snacked on something. Now I don’t eat after my dinner whatever time that may be. Sometimes it is late and that usually makes the numbers higher. And my last meal did contain carbs. Another reason sugar goes higher in the morning.

Now if I could just sleep. Nurse changed anti-psychotic to morning instead of before bed since it causes insomnia and I already suffer from it. We shall see how it goes after a week doing it this way.

I am at least thankful the medicine for the diabetes is making a difference.

Fibromyalgia and Mammograms


Getting a Mammogram with Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

A mammogram is painful for most women. Add Fibromyalgia into the equation and the pain in the nerves in the area is tremendous. Most of us can’t stand the lightest touch.

I have had many mammograms in my 59 years of life. The first ones didn’t bother me much, but once the Fibromyalgia had settled in to full flare-up there was no way I could get by without intense pain.

Ladies I now inform my technician of my Fibromyalgia and ask them to press only as hard as they absolutely have to. Amazingly they don’t have to squish as hard as they do. They were able to get the pictures without squeezing hard. And I don’t have to scream in agony. Yes, they can hurt that much due to the Fibromyalgia.
