Diabetes and Stress: Naughty cocktail

One thing I’ve learned with all these years being diabetic is that this disease and stress don’t mix well.

My husband and I applied for a house but they refused because I am now a Full time stay at home Mom and he hasn’t been working in Canada for more than 4 years. Fun! I’m over it now but it’s frustrating to have to go through all the paperworks, the banks, the sellers, etc… And stress about it since it would have been our first home. Well, I guess it wasn’t meant to be. But now what? We have to move soon and that’s two hours away. Traveling with a year old child is not all fun and games and I’d rather not travel a whole lot.

Anyways! With all that said, you can understand a small part of the stress I’m going through these days. Only thing is, instead of waking up with a beautiful reading of 5.2 mmol (96.6mg), I wake up with a not so super 10.0 mmol… (180mg). It’s not that hard to fix a high blood sugar, but it’s annoying to have to deal with all that. I feel like I’m pregnant again! (Pregnancy tends to mess your blood sugar readings. A lot!) And the fact that my blood glucose isn’t regular stresses me! HAH! It’s a never-ending malicious circle.

What do you do to lower your stress level, diabetic or not?

    Definitely not fun trying to relieve stress. I find that preoccupying myself helps a lot. I am a busy college student, so sometimes I take a break from what’s at the root of my stress (homework) and just watch a TV show or look through family pictures in my photo albums.

  2. I like a wide variety! From Biographies to sci-fi fantasy… Right now I’m right in the middle of the Game of Thrones series (3rd book) and I just bought The Hunger games. Can’t wait to read those! What about you?

  3. Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I truly enjoyed reading it, you happen to be a great author.I will make certain to bookmark your blog and will come back at some point. I want to encourage you to continue your great writing, have a nice day!

    Appreciating the hard work you put into your website and in depth information you offer. It’s great to come across a blog every once
    in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material. Fantastic read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
    Hi! I’ve been reading your blog for a long time now and finally got the courage to go
    ahead and give you a shout out from Humble Texas!
    Just wanted to tell you keep up the great work!
    I’m really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A small number of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?
    I’m curious to find out what blog platform you are working
    with? I’m experiencing some minor security issues with my latest site and I’d
    like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a fantastic
    job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely
    quick for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!
    Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide
    credit and sources back to your blog? My website is
    in the exact same niche as yours and my users would genuinely benefit from some of the information you present here.

    Please let me know if this alright with you. Thank you!
    Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with? I’ve
    loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I
    must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.

    Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a fair price?
    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
    Fantastic site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any
    message boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
    I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Appreciate it!
    Hello there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading your articles. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same topics? Many thanks!
    Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; we have created some nice practices and we are looking to trade strategies with other folks, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.
    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for
    your blog. You have some really good articles and I believe I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off,
    I’d really like to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Thank you!
    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. Nevertheless imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the very best in its niche. Awesome blog!
    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you
    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a
    hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks
    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission.
    Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.
    Have you ever thought about publishing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based on the same ideas you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would appreciate your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot
    me an e-mail.
    Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared
    this website with us so I came to take a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m bookmarking and
    will be tweeting this to my followers! Great blog and great style and design.

    Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!
    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s
    tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating
    it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

    It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this excellent blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.

    I look forward to brand new updates and will share this blog with my Facebook group.
    Talk soon!
    Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even
    using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, amazing site!
    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a
    blog article or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
    At this time it looks like BlogEngine is the top blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    Exceptional post however I was wondering if you could
    write a litte more on this subject? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Kudos!
    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Bless you!
    Hey! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done a wonderful job!
    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.

    I would be fantastic if you could point me in
    the direction of a good platform.
    Hello there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
    Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is
    very much appreciated.
    This design is incredible! You most certainly know how
    to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was
    almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!
    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more
    enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.

    Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Excellent work!
    Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to
    me. Anyhow, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll
    be book-marking and checking back often!
    Hi there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group?
    There’s a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Many thanks
    Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!
    Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying
    for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Appreciate it
    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from
    an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Cheers
    Hello! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know
    how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from
    my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!
    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll
    go ahead and bookmark your site to come back down the road.
    All the best
    I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire
    someone to do it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. many thanks
    Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but
    it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent choice
    of colors!
    Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know
    a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not
    sure why but I think its a linking issue.

    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
    Hey are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but
    I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
    Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but
    have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
    issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to
    no back up. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

    Hello! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m absolutely enjoying
    your blog and look forward to new posts.
    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against
    hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?
    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very
    good gains. If you know of any please share.
    Thanks!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m
    assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
    Hello! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new iphone 3gs! Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the superb work!
    Wow that was odd. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted to say superb blog!
