But, this could well be the case. What did you eat today and yesterday? What was your fasting?

my short answer ...I gave my nutricianist the long, honest answer today...she and i talked about my doc. we were trying to figure out whats with my doc....but my short answer is carbs. I believe my fasting was 190...but it may not have actually been a fasting..marge gave me a better sheet for record keepnig today... still have to find space to writ if it is fasting for real or not- I often eat in the night. been working on that but since dan died...its harder to care.

I understand what you are talking about. Being widowed is a really hard state to gain your balance. I tended to have an altered schedule for months and am so glad I didn't know I was diabetic at the time. I tended to eat whatever was handy and went from starving to not caring at all. It does get better in time. Stay the course! Things do improve.

Three weeks. It must be hard. For me, I think that would be the time that the reality was really setting in. I can't imagine what you're going through.

Of course you do expect him to be there. I remember how hard it was coming into an empty house. It took time to get used to leaving lights on for me alone when I left, how hard it was to learn to cook for one person, sleeping alone, etc. The important thing is learning to cook only for one person I've found and make myself sit down to eat regular, if simple, meals at a regular schedule. That controlled me when I finally got the hang of it. Be sure you eat regularly and well enough for basic nutrition. Boiled eggs (shelled and stored in water as Shanny mentioned in another thread) and lots of cheese on hand to snack or make something of a meal, keep greens frozen or fresh on hand, berries in the freezer with yogurt for b'fast or a snack if you want. Mainly take as good of care of yourself as you can. You'll find it helps to have nutritious food on hand to do this.

You'll get thru this period, but be easy on yourself as you drag thru it. It does get better, I promise. Use all the help offered, sleep when you want, ask your doctor if you need something to help with that and realize a whole lot of us have gotten thru these days and you will too.

(((((((((hugs))))))))))

(((Violet))) I'm so sorry, hon. I had no idea it had only been three weeks. Of course, you still expect to see Dan. You see something you want to remember to tell him. You hear something on the radio you want to tell him. You know what? Tell him anyway. Just say it out loud. He'll hear you and it could make you feel a little better. When my brother died, I talked to him all the time and would listen for what he would respond. You know Dan well enough to know how he'd react, so "listen" to what he says. You know he'd want you to take care of yourself, so get enough food in the house to snack on or make a simple meal, as the others have said.

Let your grief run as it will - it's perfectly natural and nothing to feel bad about. Take your time to come to terms. Listen to your body when you need rest, or to cry, but be sure to feed yourself. Dan would want you to.

And remember that we're here to talk to. Don't hesitate to talk to us. We're here for you.

(((Violet)))
