Diagnosed in 2008 with type 2 and within the last year after finding a good endo I found out I am a MODY 3. I was hoping to reverse my diabetes and did everything to do so, lost all the weight (BMI 19)upped my exercise, low-carbed, the works. Now that I have been re-diagnosed and have an increase in meds, I know that reversal is most likely not going to happen. My last A1c was 5.4 but just went up to 5.6 this week. For the past month my numbers have been so out of whack following 2 months of pretty intense stress in my life with family events, illnesses, etc. Normally I can handle most things pretty well but these events burnt me out. Now that my BS are out of whack, I have had highs like I never have had before I feel discouraged and lost some hope. I am exhausted, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I get discouraged when I take my numbers and see the high ones despite adhering to my low-carb regime.
It has happened before where my numbers have been out of whack for a week or two but never this long or high. My endo increase my glimiperide but doesn't seem to be working either. I have become depressed and lethargic and must really push myself to exercise. Sleep is hard right now, I wake up often and rarely get a full nights rest. I want to feel better and have more energy, almost as if I need a shot in the arm or something... I am usually a positive person but these past months have taken it out of me and I have nothing left to give.
