111 today. Happy International Day of the Girl to all the girls and girls at heart!

@Carol_42  I hear you! Sometimes the discipline feels like imprisonment and we need to escape and vent. Sending you warm hugs💖😘

Thanks.  I'll take all the hugs I can get.

L@@K-> -> 5.6

 

It was 6.4 at  3am & the hunger pangs kept me from returning to sleep, that is until I had toast & Vegemite..slept soundly once more.

120 immediately followed by 118. Had pizza toppings for supper last night (no crust). Had to poke each finger - three of them twice - to get blood today. After washing my hands in hot water! Really don't like it when that happens....

96 this morning.  I'm with you Betty re. trying to get blood from these fingers.  It's so easy in the summer, but the fall and winter struggle has begun!

172 (9.6) at 9:50 this morning. Bah! The later I sleep, the higher the BG. And the worse the pain and weakness. Had to even get my partner to tear open the paper from the alcohol swab this morning and to put the needle on the insulin pen. Too weak to do it myself. He usually gives me my breakfast bolus anyway, but I normally get the pen ready to go. After the Advil takes effect I should be a little bit better but this morning I could barely get up out of a chair without help. Hard to believe I've gone from virtually no pain and the ability to do most everything someone 20 years younger could do to this state in only about a month's time. And I still have no clue why.

Sometimes when I poke my finger, I can't get enough blood out of it, so I just let my arm hang down by my side and swing it back and forth a few times, and that usually produces more blood.

113 this morning. Uff Da I do hope you find some relief. I've been having excruciating pain in my arms and shoulders and a great deal of muscle weakness. My blood tests showed high uric acid not over the limit, but at the top of the scale, which can cause gouty arthritis. I'm now having half tsp of bicarbonate of soda in a glass of water 3 times daily and apple cider vinegar on mornings. There's been a small bit of relief but I've just started. I've also found that lying in bed makes the pain worse.
