Why Do I Feel Like This?...

Posted on January 26, 2011 at 12:08pm 3 Comments

Lastnight I went to Zumba class and forgot toe snack before hand, I went hypo just before bed so I ate something sweet then went to sleep. When I woke up my BM was 20.6mmol/Ls. I put the carbs in for my breakfast and let my pump give me the extra bolus to bring me down. I've carb counted all day and my BMs have been running below 10. I should be so happy that I've had a good day but I don't, today is the first day I've actually felt depressed.

I feel like everythings going backwards, I am… Continue

But the other part of me sees all the… Continue

Waiting for my insulin pump....

Posted on January 24, 2011 at 3:28pm 0 Comments

While I was waiting for my appointment for my insulin pump I continued frequent sessions with my Psychiatrist. so I could talk through any concerns. My main concern of course being weight gain...

I was told that I would gain a little bit of weight when I started taking regular insulin again, but my Doctor gave me a prescription for metformin which will help my insulin work better and stop it from turning straight into fat.

If I am eating healthy and doing regular exercise then… Continue
