Die uh beat us

I'm not going to let diabetes beat me. This disease fucking sucks. My pancreas fucking sucks. But I'm making changes that are for real.

I have quit smoking.

I have started insulin as a boost to the oral meds. I'll be seeing an endocrinologist in June to get on a better regimen. My sugars are still high and not showing that much improvement.

I'm still eating close to paleo, but it's hard to call it paleo right now. It's all about the carbs. Cheese and yogurt are back. I'm working on easing sugar back out. It's everywhere and it boosts the carbohydrate counts big time with any food. Milk and coconut milk are about the same, but I use coconut milk for the most part.

My sleep habits are still not the best. I need to get back to work on that. I'm heading for bed at about 11, but I'm still napping during the day. It would be good to get rid of that nap time.

My exercise is good, but not great. I can boost that up. I've been at home for a couple weeks with one more to go. The dog is taking steroids and can't be left alone for more than an hour. We've spent a lot of time outside doing gardening. I do something every day, even if it's not full blown exercise.

I am not my disease, but I think I need to be my disease for a while.

Diabetes sucks.
