Thanks to the most fabulous Ms. MollyJade, I now have an appointment scheduled with my endo. I thought (and secretly hoped) that it would be a while before I could get in, but I took the first available, which is Dec. 18!! Only TWO WEEKS! Plenty enough time for me to at least get some sugars recorded for him to look at. I suppose I should just do it now so I can see how bad my A1C really is. If I am going to do this, I need to do it right and this is one of the first major steps!! If it wasn't for Mollyjade, who knows how long I would have pushed this off. I probably would have delayed it until after a I had a downward spiral and then gave up...It is so much easier to hear "you need to go" from someone who understands, rather than from a nagging parent!! I have been so happy these past few days that I have been almost brought to tears. I just never imagined I could find support like this. I don't know what took me so long to find it as it is! I can so do this!! :~D

Yay! You're giving me too much credit though. Somehow making the appointment is always the hardest part for me too. I have to put "make dr apt" into my outlook calendar to nag myself.
