I hurt my arm fighting with the intruder who broke into my house and finally got up the courage to see my dr about it last week. The pain is so bad i can barely move it. The dr. sent me for xrays. The tech told me i would be hearing from my dr. Since no news is usually good news when it comes to xrays i asked if this meant that my injury was significant. She said yes and also said i should probably be wearing a cast until i see the dr. I don't think anything is broken but something must have shown up. What other types of injury would show up on an xray?View Thread
Now that i think about it you're right. I must have been in touch with my inner Morrigan. Really i have no martial arts training and the body strength of a sick kitten. It really was adrenaline. My dog is sort of big, he's 90 pounds, and usually vicious. When i walk him he lunges at everyone and his vet, and all the vet techs, are afraid of him. I really feel betrayed by his failure to back me up. The only thing i can think of is that he has a fear of drug addicts. He might have been abused by them as a puppy and the smell of the chemicals in this guy's system triggered some bad memories. He had a complete psychological breakdown. He was back to his old nasty self yesterday and tried to eat a neighbor who came over to ask me what happened. This guy told me that he tried to bite him through the fence when he works in his garden.View Thread
I'm in work. My bs has come down a bit, 280 now, but i still feel rotten. I really hurt my arm fighting with the intruder and pulled muscles in my chest and neck too so i'm in some pain. This isn't helping my numbers either.
I will have to check out the anxiety board. I did post on the sexual abuse board. Although this incident has nothing to do with SA i do suffer from a past history of it which makes me more prone to panic and anxiety.View Thread
I'm a type 2. i take my pills everyday along with 100 units of insulin and i'm far from fine. I have many complications and extreme highs and lows. Actually, over the years i've been on this board we have lost many type 2 members to diabetes complications. They all took their pills and none of them were "fine". Diabetes, both type 1 & 2, is a killer.View Thread
Sorry for the delay. I'm not able to post from home. My sugar is still very high, in the 300 -400 range. I haven't been able to sleep or eat. I can drink , i'm very thirsty actually, but when i eat i throw up. I haven't been able to calm down or stop shaking either. I'm sure the high bs isn't helping but the real problem now is my anxiety disorder is really out of control.
Thank you for checking up on me. I really do appreciate the concern. This whole incident has made me feel very alone.View Thread
I had a scary experience last night and my bs has been very high ever since. I fell asleep reading and was startled awake by a man pounding on my door. I could here him yelling that he wanted his wife. I called the police but before they could come he actually broke my door and entered my house. I really though i was about to die. This man was crazed and very scary. I somehow managed to throw him back out the door and throw my weight against it to keep him out. He fought to get back in for a while but the police finally came and took him away. I wasn't really able to calm myself after this happened and when ever i test my meter reads High. I think that with my meter this means over 600. I've taken my normal insulin, 50 units of Humulin 70/30, but it hasn't helped to lower my blood sugar. I have a vial of Novolog and i'm thinking about taking 50 units of it as well. I haven't been able to eat today. I don't have the money for the dr.s copay so a visit to him is not possible right now.
Should i just keep drinking water and wait it out or try the Novolog or more Humalin. Does anyone have any other tips for lowering bs or calming myself down. I have an anxiety disorder but have never been able to take any drugs for it since i can't tolerate the side effects. Right now between the symptoms of very high blood sugar, and just plain old terror, i really wish i didn't throw them away.View Thread
Well to be blunt it can kill him or leave him blind, in kidney failure or without his legs. I'm pretty sure he knows this already though. Unfortunately, despite you love and concern for him you can't force him to take better care of himself. Maybe he should look into getting an insulin pump. I've heard that some people gain good control with one.View Thread
I'm glad you're going back to school. I remember you said once that you didn't like to read because it was boring. I believe you think this because reading is hard for you. It actually makes me very sad that you have a hard time reading and don't enjoy it. Without being able to get lost in a good book i know i would find life unbearable. I suffer from mental illness too but i'm thankful i don't really have any learning problems. I really hope you can find some help with yours because it will make your life so much better.View Thread
