I am a type two diabetic. It is progressing quite rapidly. My a1c's are rotten. I am taken 30units of lantus in pm. I take 3 Amaryls, 1 avandia , 1 prevacid, 1 atcand. 1 zeita.
Since I started taken diabetic medicine, my cholestrol has gone up and up. I work from 2:45 - 8:15pm. Which is one of the problems, I eat supper late.
I work out 3 - 4- 5 times a week. And I mean hard.
I am sick of all this. I fight depression on a regular bases. I have started taking something to help me sleep and that has helped my numbers.
I am doing better now that spring has come and I can play in the dirt. I love to garden. I love to sew and do all the momma things. I love to cook. At least until I became diabetic.
Since menopause has been gone the migraines have gone. So life goes on one day at a time. I am the cheerleader at work. The one who champions every one. And sometimes I get tired. But I love my job.
I have to work on being positive. I am very spirituial. I do Reiki. And I hand make most everything. I love life for the most part. But taking the pills every day, is getting rough. And the shots and the whole scenario.
I will surrive. I am old school tough. But there are days I flirt with the idea of not doing it any more. And as long as the positive outweigh the negatives, I am okay.
