Dealing with gestational diabetes

As Salam Alikum Readers

Haven’t posted much of anything recently due to the fact that I’m struggling with how to deal with gestational diabetes .

I have to prick my fingers 6/8 times a day depending on f my sugars are too high or low not so fun my fingers sure hurt.

I also have to give myself insulin R in the morning with breakfast and in the evening with dinner and insulin N at bedtime so that involves filling up needles and poking them into my stomach three times a day ow.

I have to count carbs what a pain in the but and my nutritionist gave me this booklet to try and follow and sometimes I just want to scream because I’m not hunger and don’t want to eat but must eat because if I don’t eat on time it throws off my blood sugars.

Prayers To Allah

I am praying to ALLAH

Every day, every night

To guide me straight,

No left,

No right

To grant my soul a peace of mind

to shine his light into my heart

To teach me the things that are right

To show his mercy,

To me his care

I always pray to ALLAH …..

For Saber

For Iman

To guide me on the straightaway of Islam

Allergy Testing

As Salam Alikum Readers

My post is going to be about how I have been feeling and to be quite honest I don’t feel that great.

Last Thursday I saw a neurologist because I was having daily headaches and I was unsure as to what kind the good news is that they are not migraines and the bad news is that they are classified as sinus headaches and due to my long weird history of weird reactions to medications the neurologist that it would be best to figure out exactly what was triggering my headaches so I contacted my primary doctor and she ordered a allergy blood test which means I had to stop all allergy medications so I haven’t taken any since Monday night and it’s not been fun since then I have been so itchy and sneezing my eyes hurt and feel scratchy and dry I have weird rashes popping up all over my body and I can’t stand to even smell any type of perfume or cologne it sends me into sneezing fits as do most of the plants that are blooming.

I can’t weed my garden as I planned and I’ve been basically hiding indoors to try and not feel so blah and sneeze all the time .

Will post a update when I know more.
