Ok am I the only one with this problem. I am taking 4 injections of insulin a day. My numbers are doing so good and I am very excited about that because I usually don't take my meds. Im trying to turn my life around and go healthy, but every day I have gained at least two pounds since I started the insulin. I worked hard to get those 14 pounds off a few months ago.

For the past two weeks I have been taking insulin shots because its the only thing that makes my sugar go down. I was suppose to be doing this for the past couple of years and haven't because i get tired of the injections daily and i get tired of low sugars and then high sugars.

Don't know if I'm doing this in the right place. First I stuck in a blog but then noticed this area. Just getting back into TuDiabetes after a big lull. noticed you live in Beaumont TX. If i had reactivated my doings sooner, we might have had a chance to meet. I was down in your area this past February. I live in Baltimore, but make regular road trips. Right now I'm in Northridge CA with my grand daughter.
