Well, I've had quite a few challenges this month, here is the main one:
I started taking a new hormone called Symlin.
The good news, it cuts the amount of insulin I need in half.
The bad news, it metabolizes all of my psych meds very quickly and I have hallucinations.
I've been working with my endochrinologist and my psychiatrist to find a solution but so far there doesn't seem to be a happy medium. Chances are I'll have to stop taking the Symlin because the insulin works and the psych meds work, when I don't have it. It was supposed to be easier on my liver and hopefully help with my weight loss efforts. I'll see what the psych has to say next week, but my mental health and my diabetes have to be my priorities. It's just not fair that one effects the other so negatively.
I am still working out a couple of times a week and taking walks around the neighborhood. I'm off to update my fitness minutes soon. I'm just frustrated because I feel like my meds should work together to make me healthy, not work against each other to make me crazy.
I'm still here though and still fighting the good fight. I need to do some tracking and some exercise in the next week.
I start training for a second job on Monday and am hoping that I can handle working both jobs simultaneously. I'll give it a month at least to see how I do.
How are YOU doing??
Love to all,
