Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!! much frustration in this business!
Been in the bed for 3 days with another bought of gout foot...let's face it my feet have not been the same since the full on attack I had back in Dec. but I am pretty sure the problem with me us dehydration for the most part. I need to DRINK more! I've been drinking water, herbal teas and eating grapes for 2 days now and a LOT and it definitely has improved the foot pain.
I have been checking my sugars as well and they are a little higher than usual so I'm concerned.
Next time...I'll be told I must take meal time insulin 4 times a day...this is NOT going to work for me and I'm VERY likely to end up hurting myself!

Ooooh the frustration!
However, I KEEP trying to get it right!
More chicken and fish, less red meat...more fruits and veggies, less cheese....more water, NO caffeine...HARD HARD HARD!!!!
I won't give up because I need to FIGHT every day to be stronger and healthier in as many ways as possible!! Mentally, emotionally and physically!

Feet Again

It never really seems to go away.
I'm trying to drink more water and I'm trying to eat fruit and veggies but it's such a long slow process and I get frustrated and give up. :(
It is so HARD to make all these changes!
I have to keep trying up is NOT an option!

Just waiting for results of the bloodwork and whether or not the Dr. will refill my cholesterol meds.
Still need to make an appt. to go to Diabetic Clinic and soon enough it'll be Kidney Care Clinic again...
I dunno....trying to eat and exercise and having a difficult time. Baby steps, one day at a time...doing my best...
