So I've been dx'd for 3 years now, bs still unstable. I'm now on Metformin, Glyburide, Actose and Victoza. I've tried Januvia, Glypizide, Byetta, Novolog 70/30. Almost nothing can bring down my morning sugar until recently I'm using victoza. One injection a day, heaven! I was crying because I was running out of places to shoot myself. Probably going to be on the pump soon, maybe in March... planning a baby. I can't imagine having that thing on me 24/7 for I dunno how long.
I have good days and bad. How come THOSE people don't have diabetes I ask my husband. Between job loss, financial difficulties and all the stress is not helping either. Recently I finally tried to exercise 15-20 mins. a day to avoid having 4 shots a day. I realized I HAVE to do something. I hate exercising... and to think I have to do this everyday for the rest of my life ? I felt sick to my stomach.
I've been getting 60-90 for fasting lunch and dinner. Doc. said 60s is a little too low but I love having the feeling that I'm about to pass out and the shakiness. Cuz I know I'm in control and felt that I am doing something right. Just the other night, I woke up feeling all sweaty, shaky and sick, went to check my sugar and it had dropped to 40. My husband brought me a glass of orange juice and I was back up to 80 after 15 mins. Then I was thinking what if I didn't wake up? I could have just passed out in my sleep and died.
