Medicine

I have been prescribed medicine by my doctor.  I have to take it before dinner.  One day I took it about an hour beforehand.  That really didn't work.  The problem is remembering to take it closer to to eating.  Today, I forgot and took it AFTER dinner.  Hopefully, it will still "work".  I felt good today.  I have a broccoli slaw with dried cranberries.  I have had two good sized portions today.  Dinner was burgers made from venison.  Maybe tomorrow, I can get some exercise.

Fatigue

So, I had a really nice day on Thursday.  Went to a pool party to celebrate my son's end of the school year.  Packed my own lunch so that I wouldn't eat junk.  But I got home about 4 and was so tired.  Asked my husband to wake me up after an hour.  He woke me up at 6:30.  And I didn't have any problems sleeping last night.  Therefore, I googled my symptoms and found this article: http://www.all4naturalhealth.com/diabetes-fatigue.html .

My journey

Monday evening, I discovered that I have diabetes.  The really frustrating part is that I felt like I was pretty aware and careful.  I wasn't given a lot of information about what to do so please journey with me as I figure all of this out.

A little bit about me.  I am a Christian.  I am a mother to three boys.  I have a family history of diabetes, so it is something that always been on my radar.
