I know what you mean about the 25 years of living with Diabetes. I too have been taking shots and pumping for 25 years. My family will try and get me to go to the doctor more often and I tell them I know what I need to do to keep things under control. My blood sugar was 390 earlier and it's because I forgot to take a shot when I ate breakfast. So, if we know our habits are the problem, why can't we change them? I'm trying to (note to self......remember to take shot when you eat!!), but I guess it is all about balance. Sometimes I feel like I'm in control of the disease (exercising & eating correctly) and other times I feel like diabetes controls me. I guess we need to stay in control!!
Well Mr guy(abetic) you need to take control and get that A1C down. Don't you love it when people tell you that? It kinda p***es me off! I know you couldn't feel good with an A1C of 11.8. Wish I had some magical advice, but I don't. Have you thought about going to shots? I recently went back to shots after 9 years of the pump and it has been great for me. My A1C is about the same as it was on the pump, but it has been a nice break.
