    A question for the ladies here....

    Another question that I have....watching more Youtube videos of people announcing to their friends or relatives, that they are having a baby, the women all start screaming, jumping up and down, and start crying, while the men in the videos just smile and say congratulations. When do the women act like lunatics when they hear this announcement? I don't get it, I mean, women get pregnant every day, so why are these pregnancy announcements making these women act crazy? As a second part to this, when the wife tells the husband that she is pregnant, he is stunned....I mean, did they use birth control? If not, then what did he think was going to happen? It comes across to me as if, "We have never used birth control and now my wife is pregnant? I can't believe it!" REALLY? I can believe it! While I enjoy watching all types of videos, videos of this type make me wonder why these people are reacting this way? (maybe it's because I feel little in the way of emotions, so I can't understand how other people feel when they experience things like this.)

    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    I woke up early this morning to a 46 (2.55) so I ate some glucose tablets and went back to bed. I woke up hours later and I was at 86 (4.78), so I'm not sure which numbers to use, since the 46 is what woke me up, and I wasn't ready to get up and stay up at that time of the morning.....so maybe the 86?☺️

    8 ooops..that'd be birthday cake. FunDad, those meds are eventually pee'd out & end up in our rivers,lakes & ocean. There was real concern that Metformin was found in Lake Michigan in such high numbers that it was even in the fish. WE are killing our planet.

    I’m back, head hanging in shame.

    Dawn Phenomena is an utter pain. It seems there are a lot of variations here, but a small snack at bed time used to help mine. I don't get DP like I used to, but a small handful of nuts or bit of cheese right as I was heading to bed seemed to help a lot when I did. Some people will take a shot of some hard alcohol before bed with the idea that the liver will be too busy processing the alcohol that it won't have time to dump. Oh, and then you can also have liver dumps in the morning after waking up. I estimate I have around a half hour from the time I get up to eat. If I go outside of that window, I will get a liver dump. I read recently about the release of cortisol into our systems (separate from the DP dump earlier), another way the body has to make sure we have the energy to find food. Eating as soon as possible can stop that process from happening. It does mean the more time consuming breakfast meals I make get eaten for lunch or dinner (breakfast for dinner is a personal favorite). My morning meals are usually quick and simple. I rarely do something more complex than a quick scramble.

    102 I take complete ownership of this one. I had a horrible case of the munchies last night and ate way too many coconut flakes and almonds.

    I’m back, head hanging in shame.

    Updating: I’ve been using my meter frequently, to figure out which foods spike my bg, and when it runs high. I’ve got a dawn phenomenon big time. It goes down after I eat a somewhat fatty breakfast like eggs with cheese. Walking a bit more, and had much better bg overall on the days I took just a mile walk. I need to do that more now that spring is here, and walk without the dog at least once a day. It’s not exactly exercise with him. Any strategies to manage dawn phenomenon?

    101 I was at the drug store the other day waiting on a prescription to be filled. As I sat there watching people picking up their meds, and watching the four people plus the pharmacist behind the counter working their tails off filling orders and looking at all the medicine on the shelves and thinking about the thousands of drug stores across the country. It's incredible the amount of medication handed out. Sad really. But thankful we have it.

    A Thread For Humor

    I was at the dentist's office today, and they had some magazines there to read, so I grabbed a Reader's Digest, which I haven't read in many years, and I went straight to the "Laughter is the best medicine" section. Two things that I liked were these...."I have been able to keep to my New Year's resolution of making sure that I don't have sex with a Victoria's Secret lingerie model." The second one was, "those car commercials have grossly overestimated the time I spend driving in deserts and snow covered mountainous areas."

    89 this morning Jinx! Finally got some sleep last night. Only woke up a few times. I did this by taking 3 benedryl, opening the bedroom window fully with the fan and running it all night. Mr Fuzzy was a shivering ball this morning as it got down into the 40s. Poor guy.

    A Thread For Humor

    CONTACT WITH THE OTHER SIDE A FATHER PUT HIS 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER TO BED, TOLD HER A STORY AND LISTENED TO HER PRAYERS WHICH ENDED BY SAYING, "GOD BLESS MOMMY, GOD BLESS DADDY, GOD BLESS GRANDMA AND GOOD-BYE GRANDPA. THE FATHER ASKED, "WHY DID YOU SAY GOOD-BYE GRANDPA?"... THE LITTLE GIRL SAID, "I DON'T KNOW DADDY, IT JUST SEEMED LIKE THE THING TO DO" THE NEXT DAY GRANDPA DIED. THE FATHER THOUGHT IT WAS A STRANGE COINCIDENCE. A FEW MONTHS LATER THE FATHER PUT THE GIRL TO BED AND LISTENED TO HER PRAYERS WHICH WENT LIKE THIS, "GOD BLESS MOMMY, GOD BLESS DADDY AND GOOD-BYE GRANDMA." THE NEXT DAY THE GRANDMOTHER DIED. "HOLY CRAP" THOUGHT THE FATHER, "THIS KID IS IN CONTACT WITH THE OTHER SIDE." SEVERAL WEEKS LATER WHEN THE GIRL WAS GOING TO BED, THE DAD HEARD HER SAY, "GOD BLESS MOMMY AND GOOD-BYE DADDY." HE PRACTICALLY WENT INTO SHOCK. HE COULDN'T SLEEP ALL NIGHT AND GOT UP AT THE CRACK OF DAWN TO GO TO HIS OFFICE. HE WAS NERVOUS AS A CAT ALL DAY, HAD LUNCH AND WATCHED THE CLOCK. HE FIGURED IF HE COULD GET BY UNTIL MIDNIGHT HE WOULD BE OKAY. HE FELT SAFE IN THE OFFICE, SO INSTEAD OF GOING HOME AT THE END OF THE DAY HE STAYED THERE, DRINKING COFFEE, LOOKING AT HIS WATCH AND JUMPING AT EVERY SOUND. FINALLY MIDNIGHT ARRIVED; HE BREATHED A SIGH OF RELIEF AND WENT HOME. WHEN HE GOT HOME HIS WIFE SAID, "I'VE NEVER SEEN YOU WORK SO LATE. WHAT'S THE MATTER?" HE SAID, "I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT, I'VE JUST SPENT THE WORST DAY OF MY LIFE." SHE SAID, "YOU THINK YOU HAD A BAD DAY, YOU'LL NEVER BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED TO ME. THIS MORNING MY GOLF PRO DROPPED DEAD IN THE MIDDLE OF MY LESSON!"
