I'm really bummed out today. I went to the doctor after having had my blood tests, and my cholesterol and A1c are up. So she put me back on the medication I had weaned off of, and she prescribed me cholesterol medication. She said with my family history (my mom had a severe stroke and heart attack) we have to be careful and protect my heart. So now I'm taking 2 meds for diabetes, one for allergies, one for cholesterol, plus multivitamins and baby aspirin. My goal is to get off the diabetes meds, but instead of achieving that (in spite of the weight loss and healthier eating), I had to add a medication on.
Well, back to the drawing board. I have been under stress after my mom's illness and spent most of the summer helping move her to the nursing home and helping my dad, and overall, I've dealt very well, but it definitely wasn't the usual routine.
I just need to re-develop my food and exercise plan and stick to it. Still, it's very frustrating.
