I'm refocused on my self-care and I got lab work done and a doctor's visit. My blood sugar is in the borderline range, so I'm having to stop eating sugar as a way to cope with caring for my mom and dad.
I am so proud to say that I have stopped all sugar except for very dark chocolate. I'm also focused on activities that make me happy to decrease stress. I'm starting my exercise program too. I burned off about 5 pounds of fat and that feels good. I figure that if I can accomplish this now, while under stress as a caregiver, I can do anything!
I want to buy a blood glucose monitor to help me see what affects my blood sugar so that I can use that feedback to motivate me to make more diet changes if needed.
Does anyone here have any experience with blood glucose monitors and which ones are the best kind?
I look forward to continue to improve my self care.
