Type 2 Diabetes on the Fritz!


I am very frustrated this morning! Trying to keep track of my blood sugars while being a Type 2 Diabetic is ridiculous! I was diagnosed back in 1998 and it’s been pretty much under control since then, but now that I am retired, it seems to be having some issues.

I spend my days barely eating and trying to move around the house and it does absolutely nothing! I woke up this morning to a 192 blood sugar and I am NOT happy. About 2 weeks ago, I was averaging 150 in the mornings.

Right now, I am taking three 500 mg Metformin a day. My doctor wants me to move up to 4, but I refuse. I asked to see an Endocrinologist and she refused to give me the consult! I have one kidney and my blood sugar is NOT under control! Why can I not see the endocrinologist?!

I have put in a request to get a new doctor. I’m really hoping they have something to offer besides Metformin. I’m doing the best I can on my part, but I need a medication to do its part too!

Back From Hiatus!

Ok. I have been on hiatus. It has been forever since I have posted. SO much has been going on, but most of it has been internal. On my last post in June, I mentioned that I had begun taking CBD. I have seen many changes since starting the regimen. I really believe that it has helped me become more at ease in my own skin. I find that when I am home alone, I’m not AS hypervigilant as I used to be. I still have bad moments, but on the average, the CBD has really helped. I take the oil in the mornings and in the evenings, I use CBD gummies. I am really grateful for that it has helped!

I’m still struggling with trying to put myself on some kind of schedule during the day. My main focus these days is trying to get my diabetes under control and getting healthier in general. I prayed for this! I need to take advantage of everything God has put in my life.

I’m grateful today for so much!
