I'm Still Shuddering!

I made Sweet and Sour Pork with white rice yesterday evening for supper. It was delicious. The super lean pork chunks were so tender, you could cut them in half with a fork and the sweet sauce with pineapples, onions and bell peppers were scrumptious.

I regret having eaten it. The dish was a "no, no" for diabetics. My sugar soared uncontrollably and no matter how long I ran on my treadmill, the sugar continued to be exceedingly high. I ended up taking 2, instead of 1 of my Glucovance pills.

I felt so fatigued and sleepy that I just went straight to bed and fell asleep.

I had the most ghastly dreams imaginable. I still can't get them out of my head.

In the first dream, my doctor was systematically groping me. He started feeling my feet, then my ankles, and continued until he got to my thighs. Then he grabbed my hands and continued touching me until he got to my shoulders. Then he said that my limbs would have to be amputated because of the diabetes.

I really have a web page with video links to most of the be-headings by the terrorists. I now realize that I should never have seen them because the second dream I had last night, had to do with one beheading in particular. In my dream, I was there in the flesh, looking at the man being beheaded. His face was inches away from my face. I saw in vivid color and in slow motion the actual beheading with a very small knife. The man kept looking at me, begging me to save him. I couldn't move. I couldn't do anything. After he had been beheaded, the terrorist grabbed him by the back of his head and dangled it right in front of my face. The victim still wasn't dead and kept looking at me in terror. I saw tears fall from his eyes all the while, staring at me. Then he closed his eyes and his whole face shriveled inwardly. The bone and flesh from his neck dripping with blood.

I believe I had these dreadfully vivid dreams because of my blood sugar. I don't know if by taking 2 pills instead of one, lowered my blood sugar too much, or if it was still too high as I slept.

I will never eat Sweet and Sour Pork with rice again.

I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me
ever after, and changed my ideas; they've gone through
and through me, like wine through water, and altered
the color of my mind.

Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams
than the imagination when awake?

Blood sugar can do some funny things for diabetics. You may have been on the glucose roller coaster, going alternatingly high and low depending on whether the food or the meds were winning at any given moment.

You are so correct. This is the first time this had happened to me. I had super too late in the evening. Maybe if I'd of eaten it earlier, my daily activities wouldn't of permitted the sugar to go so high. I did have a pretty big portion of the dish 'cause it was so good. Maybe if I'd of eaten just a small amount, I would of been okay.

Anyway, I'll just keep away from this certain dish from now on. The recipe called for lots of brown sugar, pineapple juice and pineapple chunks. Eating that, plus the white rice just did me in.

i love the bronte sisters.....

is there nothing that controls the blood sugar? like something you can eat right after to sort of balance it out?

The Bronte sisters are among my favorites, too.

Diabetes is an incurable disease. It is a frightening disease, with great possibilities of going blind, leg amputations and the list goes on.

There is really nothing you can do when the blood sugar shoots up, and this happens when you eat things you shouldn’t. Exercise helps a lot.

It is infuriating because I’m so limited in the things I can eat. I love sweets, especially chocolate and it breaks my heart that I can’t have any. Just about everything turns to sugar. I love pizza and make it on weekends for the whole week. I eat a tiny wedge and immediately start running so the sugars don’t go too high.

I constantly keep my skin, especially my feet and legs, moisturized. I go to a Podiatrist once a month for a pedicure. There are so many things I used to enjoy, such as skydiving, that have had to be stopped altogether.

There are many people out there who have Diabetes and don’t know it. This is why everyone should go to their doctor and be tested, at least once a year.

How sad 'cause I love sugar so much.

I'm feeling much better. The only thing
that's bothering me are the ugly dreams
I had last night.

I hope you feel better...

huge hugs....
