Something went wrong with my last post.  The whole thing was not a quote.  I added some of that to what Pastor Roger had said.  Anyhow, I am just going to have to let God work it all out for me, that and another problem that has started.  I almost fell out at work Tuesday night.  I ate a piece of pizza and about five minutes later I felt like I was going to be sick and I got really hot and started running a fever and I sat down right before I fell down.  There wasn't anything wrong with the pizza because my boss and his son ate all of it but a couple of pieces.  And I only ate one piece.  Anyhow, I had a really high fever and I got dizzy and I had a bad headache and my heart felt like it was about to beat out of my chest.  Mr. Marshall was just about to take me to the ER.  After about an hour I stood up and I almost hit the floor.  It was like my head was heavier than the whole rest of my body.  I started feeling bad around 6:45.  Mr. Marshall (my boss) wouldn't let me drive home until I got over all of that so I didn't get to go home until about 9:00 Tuesday night.  He followed me home then to make sure I got there okay.  Anyhow, he seems to think that it is my sugar but together with a little stress.  And daddy seems to think it's my sugar too.  If anyone has any ideas of what's going on, I am open to them!  I really haven't felt quite right since.  And I've lost almost 3 pounds since Tuesday morning.  It seems like everything is happening to me!  Thanks for your continued prayers.

It is possible that you had a severe anxiety attack since you've been under alot of stress.  But you should go to the doctor and get a checkup...just to make sure that everything is ok.  If the doctor doesn't find anything wrong with you, it might have been from the stress of everything.  If so, try to take things easier in order to let your system have a rest.

Are you a diabetic?  Stress can raise sugar levels, too.

3 pounds is not a lot to be concerned about. A persons weight can vary up or down as much as 5 or 10 pounds every day. There are a lot of things that could cause this problem sister. You have been under a lot of stress lately and that can cause some very real problems. Like DW  said, I suggest that you see a Dr and let him check you out on this.

In the meantime my prayers will be with you.

Yes, or lower them which can also give the same symptoms.

It is possible that your sugar levels are off sister.  I would see a doctor, if I was you.  I will keep my prayers going for you, and family members.

I don't know, that's what everyone else seems to think too.   I can't stand going to the doctor though.

I think that's kind of what Mr. Marshall was saying.  I don't know though.  As far as I know I am not diabetic.  Mr. Marshall said that my sugar had probably dropped because his does the same thing, so I ate a jolly rancher and some crackers and like half of a fudge round.  Everything made me feel sick though.  When I finally got home, I tested my sugar and it was 196.

Last year I passed out and fell in the pond while fishing.  Thank God I wasn't by myself that day.  I would have drowned.  I went to the doctor and the didn't find anything.  They found a very minor heart defect, but they don't think that's what made me pass out.  They said not to worry about it unless it started happening a lot.  But that was a year ago.  

And I forgot to mention that I haven't been able to sleep and I haven't hardly had an apetite for the past week.

Dear MJC..

I know it is hard to go through trials and especially that with your family as I have been there...but I have never been alone and you are not either...God never slumbers and He is always with us..It is comforting to know especially when we feel so alone..You are in my prayers and your family...I think it is wise to have a check up with your doctor...
I wish i could just hug you...Thank God for the brethren who are filled with the love of God that extends towards the brethren in times like these...

My dad is diabetic too.  I used his meter to test my sugar.  He has to take to insulin shots a day.  But I didn't think too much of it because I had just eaten, even though I really didn't eat that much.  I really am trying to avoid going to the doctor though.

Those levels are considered to be what is called pre-diabetes. Unless they go over 200 they don't treat it with insulin shots anymore. If a person suspects low sugar level they should try eating an orange. It is better than candy for it. Sister a Dr does seem to be in order. It is best to get these things early as the treatment is less difficult.

Diabetics can pass it from generation, to generation.  I was found passed out, when I was found by a Church member.  Sister, I pray you don't have this happen to you.  Before that happened though, I was normal, no sign of being a diabetic. No I don't take insulin shots though.

By the way, I dislike going to the doctor as well.

You are definitely right about the insulin thing.  My dad was on pills for his diabetes for a couple of years before he started taking insulin.  I reckon I do need to go to the doctor, as much as I don't want to, its probably the best thing for me to do Sad

Thank you sister, I'll be praying that you can control it like I do mine, through diet.

Edited to add;  I should said; if you have diabetes being able to control it through diet.

I don't like going to doctors either.  Smiley

My mom was found to be diabetic about a year and a half ago (after we were almost mugged by two men).  At first her blood sugar fasting level (after sleeping all night and taking the blood sample in the a.m.) was low 200s.  She started on 3 Glyberide pills a day.  Now she is down to one pill a day and her blood sugar levels are great!

I mentioned a  possible anxiety attack because you mentioned your heart pounding like crazy, you being dizzy, hot, and your head felt heavy.  If your doctor does not find anything wrong with you, stop drinking caffeine, no sodas (too much sugar affects a stressed nervous system) and eliminate chocolate (the chocolate, at least until you are feeling better  Smiley ).  And, please try to reduce your stress levels.....try to get some relaxation.  I know you've been going through alot with your family and job situation.

Well, I really don't think that this is an option at the time.  I found out Tuesday morning that my preacher is leaving.  Next Sunday morning is his last service.  He is moving to a church about 40-50 miles away I think.  He said that it wasn't anything that happened here, but he felt like God was just leading him elsewhere.  I understand and I don't hold it against him or anything.  But this is just one more thing.  I also just bought a truck from my grandpa.  I am working every hour I can get right now to pay for it and the insurance.  Insurance for a 16 year old is not cheap!!!  The boy I used to work with quit so I am taking up my hours and his too.  I also need the money so I can get some tires, and the transmission serviced and a few other things.  And school started back Monday.  I can't stand it.  I am not going to quit or anything, but I just can't stand it.  The only class I really like is Chemistry and my computer class.  Please just keep me in your prayers.  It seems like a soap opera.  Every time I post its something else!  Thank you all so much!
