Weight Loss Surgery Journey

Weight loss surgery has changed my life forever! Since having the gastric sleeve surgery earlier this year, I IMMEDIATELY stopped taking a handful of my diabetic prescriptions, including ALL of my insulins. The only prescription I am currently taking is 2mg of Gabapentin at night, that's it! I'm waking up with a fasting bg of about 95 right now so I'm thinking I may change to 1mg fairly soon. I'm hoping by January 2014 I will be medication/insulin FREE!!!! Before WLS, there was no hope for me…See More

"I just keep sachets of sugar around. 1 is about 5 g of sugar and is perfect, and isn't many calories. Sure beats keeping candy around, which may well get eaten when it's not meant to be. I've only eveer taken a sachet of sugar when I…"

Swimming in Insulin

Posted on May 5, 2010 at 7:58am 10 Comments

I have often wondered if I would be a good candidate for the pump but no one has ever explained it to me. They just keep shoving insulin my way... I wake up with numbers in the 150's most days, sometimes a little higher. I take shots of Levimir, 60 units in the morning and 60 units at bedtime. I also use the Novolog stick pen during the day, as needed. I have peripheral neuropathy in my feet that hurts like HELL. I take 800mg of Neurotin daily for the pain along with a Vitamin B complex and…

Pain Pain Go Away

Posted on April 20, 2010 at 9:45am 11 Comments

I fall asleep each night in pain, I wake up in pain every morning. Is this any way to live? The pain is the kind that has no name. I t can not be described in a word or even in a feeling or even in an emotion. It's just pain, pain in my feet. I want the pain to go away. I want it to leave this world from the tips of my toes into eternity and to never ever come back. Not after me, nor anyone, not even my ememies. Pain is no ones friend but it is everyone's enemy. For some reason I have…

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, OUCH!

Posted on August 10, 2009 at 1:59pm 3 Comments

MY FEET WON'T STOP HURTING!!!! So I am taking a few different meds and a OTC cream to help but they still hurt like hell. Here is my newest problem though, my legs twitch in the evenings as I am winding down for bed. As I am laying on the couch or in bed watching TV just chilling out my legs have this uncontrollable electric shock feeling that make them twitch. Its crazy as all get out and I can't stop it. Sometimes it starts as early as during dinner and I can feel them under the table begin… Continue

Lyrica and weight gain

Posted on April 17, 2009 at 6:50am 10 Comments

So I am now looking into the fact (or myth) that Lyrica causes people to gain a significant amount of weight. Since taking it myself I have noticed a increase in my weight which I don't need. I lost about 50 pounds two years ago and have managed to keep it off until this Lyrica came along. Bummer huh? I just added Cymbalta to help with my neuropathy pain and the depression I am experiencing along with it. Only on day two of the Cymbalta so I don't have anything to say about that as of yet. Just… Continue
