Since last week, I have found out that I am now a diabetic that is taking medication for that, high cholesterol, and a UTI. I have have to change my diet down to practically what the rabbits eat.
This is soo hard to do and I've done it drastically, so now I am having carbohydrate withdraw. Needless to say between the medications ( of which I have never had to take medication for anything but a migraine and that was Excedrin) and the withdraw of carbs, I can scream, and I have!
I have snipped off Ed's head quite a few times which I do not mean to but he at times takes it like I do mean it. He does get irritable at times w hen things have to be done and he just doesn't do them. I am the one always taking the initiative to get things done...he is lazy! He does work long hours but it is only 3 days a week, sometimes 4 (12 hr shifts) So when I say something...he goes in the room and shuts the door and gets on the computer. Somethings gotta change...and soon. I feel like I'm the only one that can do anything here. My kids included along with Ed. URGH!!!!
Anyway, back to the carb withdrawal. I do get fruit or yogurt and some diet pepsi in but that just doesn't get it. I also have to start loosing weight because I am hoping to get approved for gastric bypass. Over the years the weight and depression just creeped (?) up on me and now I have to do something about it. I am so frustrated lately.
If anyone knows of a web that may have some low cal, low sugar sweets recipes that I may try, please let me know. I am beside myself and it's only been a week. OOPS! Just thought about it, I can have jello...whooohoooo!
CRANKY, IRRITABLE, SNAPPY, GRUMPY, MEAN and I could just lock myself in the closet!
Any ideas that can help me through this adjusting time, please let me know. I don't like the way I am lately.
