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.

Fibromyalgia and exercise


Doctors do tend to recommend that you do some light exercise with Fibromyalgia. Mine suggests walking (have a fitbit and slowly adding more steps) and swimming in warm water is another one.

Though for some this works the opposite and increases the pain. You have to decide which is more important to you and what your pain level is. I am trying to walk through mine before I become completely unable to walk at all and end up in a wheelchair.

Sugar level was 114…FitBit


Have to recheck it in a bit since I ate more carbs than usual and need to see what it did to my sugar levels.

I  just checked it at the 2 hour mark and it was 271. Way too high!

My numbers come down slowly. They should come down faster. At least they are still coming down.

I wear a fitbit now and keep track of my steps. I made a goal of 1000 and my son changed it to 1500. Still fighting to meet the 2nd goal.

My pain level isn’t that bad today, but I do have the external yeast infection again and that is sore. Have cream to put on it.
