Diabetes STILL bites and I'm STILL struggling with it. However, I have some success this year with lowering glucose: it's called working at Amazon again.
If I take my meds twice a day, AND eat a very small amount of low carb foods, AND fast intermittently, AND climb a lot of stairs and walk a lot at work, I can come home with a normal fasting blood glucose of 70 to 100. But it takes all 4 of these to make it happen. The days I don't work, no combination of the others keeps the glucose down.
A Review of the Past Year in Super Speed
We sold a lot of stuff on eBay, removed nearly everything from Amazon (I don't want to take on the sales tax issues that are being created by having product stored across state lines), and tried working different local jobs. All were disapointments, but the cash helped.
This year when we opted to come to Amazon again, we also decided to stop renting the apartment since we never wanted to live there ourselves. So after divesting ourselves of a LOT of stuff, we managed to cram what was left into our storage unit, moved back into the Argosy with our son, and trundled off to Kentucky.
So I am looking at my online stuff and trying to decide how much of it I am willing to put time and energy into again, and it's not all that much. I'm getting older and I'm getting tired.
Happens to the best of us, so why should I be so surprised that it's happening to me.
No moral to this story ... unless you realize how short your life is and how important it is to be true to yourself and find your happy place. I wish you well on your journey.
