Nooooo, not flannel!!! Lol
@SydneySentinel not a fan?
Too hot! I'm already like a furnace when I sleep.
I only tried satin once and nearly slipped off in my sleep.
😂😂😂😂 it happens but makes U feel so good when naked
I’ll give you that. I don’t think they’d work well in the winter?

Never tried those, I’ll have to take a look.
My feet are always cold.
Flannel sheet's might help.
You're such an enigma Sydney.
Lol because of my choice in sheets?
Nah, it's just that you talk about being a penny pincher. But then you say you buy the more expensive sheets. It's kind of a contradiction. Which isn't a bad thing, just confusing.
@chitown ohh gotcha. So I already don't sleep very well and I'm prone to nightmares. This is one of the ONLY things I splurge on (and I wait for them to be on sale and I'm GOOD at finding sales on sheets). I have two things: sheets and perfume. Perfume is like every other year at Christmastime and sheets maybe the same frequency.
Ok i get it now. Is that tied into the diabetes or is stress related?
No, I've been prone to nightmares since I was a little kid. Active imagination, I guess! No, my diabetes is under control now (almost nonexistent) but once you have the label, you have it for life. "Diabetes controlled by diet and exercise"
Really? How did it change so fast? They didn't put you on any form of medication?
Oh, yeah. They put me on meds immediately because my sugar reading was so high, it was near comatose level. I panicked and cut all the bad stuff at once and my numbers got too low. Once I saw a nutritionist, she gave me a dietary guideline. First she tried to get me on three meals a day, which I have never done. Now I eat two meals and two bigger snacks, all containing the proper nutrition content that I need. I've always been pretty active but I increase the length of physical activity. My nutritionist did not recommend this but on the weekends I do intermittent fasting (if it can be called that being only two days a week). I still eat healthy meals during the weekends but like yesterday I had two slices of pizza plus lots of veggies. Then I waited 3 hrs and had birthday cake with my daughter. All of this suits my lifestyle and needs and I feel really good. I still have to take the meds but I'm hoping to get off of them within a year (realistically). Sorry for the lengthy explanation.
No, gimme the long explanation lol. As i've said before my mother is diabetic (yeah type 2) So it runs in my family. The way you used to eat sounds kind of familiar. I would skip breakfast, nibble a bit for lunch and eat like a hippopatumus for dinner. When i'm at work i don't want think about eating, i'm busy. But then i'd make up for it later. Not the healthiest i know. Between 20 and 40 i never went to the doctor. When i i finally went they told me my A1c was bumping right up against being being diabetic. So over the next 7 months i lost 70 lbs. And that brought it back into the normal range. Over the past couple years i've fallen back into bad habits. And my weight and a1c has since creeped back up. My doctor is starting to get on me about that again. Fear is a good motivator. Problem is i'm lacking the motivating fear that helped me before lol. I'm hoping that spring will get me going again. Lol
How long has your mom had type 2? Was she able to get her blood sugar normal?That's awesome that you lost that much weight. The doctor really scared me with the long term consequences. I don't want to die and I don't want my daughter to have to take care of me, especially if it's something I can fix. My sister was hoping for a fear motivator-- she's a little bigger than me but carries weight a lot differently, plus I'm a few inches taller. She said she went to the doctor a few years ago, hoping for some wakeup call but her health is pristine!
Your sister, poor her? Lol my mom is 75 she's had it for about 15 years. I'm not sure how to classify hers i mean yeah her readings are nothing like yours were. She talks more about her a1c and tries to keep that from getting any higher. But she's on insulin. Of course that has only been within the past 5 years. Or so. That's what confuses me is how the different people i know with it have it treated differently. And talks with my mom just leave me confused as she makes her own diagnoses of things. I don't want discount her knoewledge as she raised all of us and kept us healthy lol. But she contradicts a lot of doctors.
Every fucking question on this site is now under, "sexuality."The mods are brain-dead 12 year olds.
LOL. Cool. I got no sheets - just a blanket. Dear god.
So 300 grit sandpaper?
