Portrait of a Diabetic

After reading “Portrait of a Diabetic” I’m comforted in knowing that I’m not by myself in trying to manage my Type 2 diabetes without taking the drugs pushed by the pharmaceutical companies and most doctors. I was diagnosed with this dreaded disease in September 2013 and it has been a struggle, to say the least, to find ANYTHING to eat without loads and loads of sugar. So in that respect, I sympathize with Grayson. Practically EVERYTHING sold in the supermarkets is loaded with sugar in one form or another. I took Metformin 500mg twice a day for almost 2 months and began to have severe stomach distress. My upper stomach bloated out and I got to the point where I could hardly eat anything. And I was constantly hurting from up under my breast bone all the way through my body to my backbone. When I told the doctor she suggested I cut back on the pills to once a day. When that didn’t relieve the symptoms, she suggested I take one tablet every other day. The symptoms continued so I was advised to cut the tablets back to every two days, and on it went until I was only taking one pill a week and when that still didn’t help, I just quit taking the tablets altogether. My blood sugar level has never gotten higher than 195 and normally stays around 121, although I have had several readings in the high 80’s. Thank you, Grayson for your blog. I haven’t tried the all meat approach, I’m gonna give it a try since I’ve practically tried everything else.

Life sure must have been boring because it sure hasn't been since! I hope you will enjoy the ramblings and rants of an old grandma who is trying to make up for all the years of apathy towards who was elected into all branches of our government beginning here at our local level going all the way to Washington DC.
