I'm at a loss. I followed the meal plan my endocrinologist gave me and I almost passed out the first day I followed it. So I did some research, I played around with recipes and I STILL cannot get my numbers down. I'm so damn frustrated I want to rip my doctors and everyone else around me's face off! He keeps changing my insulin and it still does not bring it down! I have cut rice, white bread, even reg whole wheat and moved over to whole wheat thin bread (which are only 16g of carbs) they say to eat 1/2 c oatmeal plain or with fruit but no matter what it spikes my sugars (raisins 1 tbsp not, less then half a banana, apples cinnamon), I have always ate a lot of vegetables I used to be a vegetarian, I cook well and I cook everyday and I'm tired of it because it doesn't work! I've cut my salt intake, no more pasta, bagels, egg sandwiches!!!! I do not know what the hell I'm doing wrong! I am trying so hard to follow this absolutely ridiculous diet (or as I like to call it the starvation tactic) my doctor gave me but I'm really hangry!!!!! I keep reading follow your diet but even my doctor told me the one he gave was only a guideline I don't see how I am supposed to eat 2200 calories on that damn diet! I don't get it! These diabetic cookbooks/books are terrible!! I can't do it anymore and I'm so frustrated and I need help! Oh and I can't exercise because my OB wants me on bed rest! Which I have to work! I can't use my time because I'd like to use it for when the baby comes...if it comes at this point!!! The doctors have me sooo damn paranoid I'm losing sleep every day! I'm at a loss and have no one to speak to! I can't afford a dietician specializing in diabetes! I just want to scream! I've lost weight too! I just don't get it! HELP!!!!!
