today to get a refill of one of my prescriptions. I wasn’t really paying attention to anything, standing in line, caught up in my own little world. But then I heard a child crying so I looked over to see what was happening. The pharmacist was teaching a parent how to prick her son’s finger to check his blood sugar levels. And he was crying because it hurt. And all I could think was that he looks to be only about 2 years old. He’s too little to have something as big & terrible as diabetes in his life. It broke my heart & I almost started crying right there in the store. I hate this disease. 20 months ago

For whatever reason, my body has basically decided to give up the fight & let the diabetes win :( My A1C results suck and my daily poke tests suck. Despite my very strict diet, my exercising, & my medication, we can’t get my blood sugar levels under control. So after slowly increasing my dosage levels to the maximum amount, which didn’t really help my sugar levels at all, last month my doctor added a second medication, which also hasn’t done anything to make the situation better. So yesterday my doctor told me to stop taking the second drug & she put me on yet another new one. This is the 6th medication change in 6 months & things aren’t getting any better. And yesterday, she told me that if we don’t get things under good control soon, it’s going to be too dangerous for me to get pregnant. So then on the way home from the doctor’s office, all I could think about was that I wasted all my childbearing years on TJ, Brahm, & Rodney. Gods above, I was an idiot. I want to have a baby with Matt & I hate that this disease might not let me do that now :( 22 months ago
Test results aren’t where my doctor & I would like to see them. Added another drug & also one more herbal supplement to the daily medication regime :( I could open my own pharmacy there are so many pills & liquids in my medicine cabinet. 23 months ago
was the year of my diagnosis.I am a Type 2,but the doc said I am a “mix” of type 1 and type 2.I have cleaned up my diet,eliminated most junk,”white” foods,and regular soda.Trying to lose weight also,which is more of a challenge since I have neuropathy in my feet.(The pain is what led me to the doc,which led me to my diagnosis)I am currently on Metformin,but no insulin,thankfully.I am having difficulty affording my med and test strips however,so I am trying to get help with this.The biggest probs I have are carbs and keeping my diet varied so I dont get bored… 23 months ago
