I think that you need to say to him, that you want to treat this as a new start, as if just diagnosed and for him to explain to you about it again. What treatment schedules he recommends, about testing, sick day rules etc etc. You are right, you do tend to get stuck in a rut, find things do not work or do work and wonder why things go wrong .... even if he tells you something you know, just politely nod, and make a mental note of it and ask questions if you need to.
Don't, whatever you do bring your dissatisfaction with your previous doctors. That would get his back up. If he does ask you why you have changed just say to him that you had been with the same doctors for the duration and that you feel you would like a fresh aspect on it, saying that he might have some ideas that you had not thought of.
You are not weird. I have also not had much doctor input for several years - lots of problems with doctors cancelling, one general doctor does not want to discuss diabetes etc. But now I have found a hospital some 45 miles bus ride away who will support my decision and choice to use pork insulins and my refusal to entertain the idea of going back on human insulins, and they are also willing to tackle my hypo unawareness!
