Went to see doc, today, for monthly check-up..Since my blood sugar has been in such good control, he's cutting me down to 1/2 a pill once a day; then, next month, we're going to take an A1C, and if it comes back at ;east as good as my last one (5.2), then we're going to go for none at all..If I manage to get that done, I will have hit one of my goals, which is to get rid of my diabetic meds..Woohoo!
He's also finally listening to me, and weaning me off the antidepressants..I was on them twice a day, I've been doing just one a day for a month, so now he's cut me down to one every other day, to see how that goes..I told him I've started writing, again, and of course the exercising, which as he said, is known to help with depression..Sooooo if I can get rid of that one, that's two gone from my arsenol..now, I need to get him to check my cholesterol, again; If I got my "good" cholesterol up where it's suppose to be, that may be #3..That'll be about as many as I'll be able to get rid of, but getting rid of those, shows I'm on the right path, and improving in the areas I can improve! But one thing at time, and right now, that's getting rid of that pesky 1/2 pill lol
Never thought I'd be excited about seeing a doctor and/or getting bloodwork, but I can't wait for next visit! lol
