No not again....

Sunday, July 12, 2015

And here we go again, reunited nearly 4 years after the 2nd reunion - but who's counting. I not only bring with me my friend Mr Diabetes but a new friend, Ms Cushing Syndrome. This rare disease has wreaked havoc on my body for nearly 3 years. Today was yet another "wake up call" for me. My sugar has been out of control as a result of my out of control eating habits since Nov. 2014 - well, NOW I'm on insulin. I'm determined that when I go back for my evaluation, to get off this mess and get back to the low dose Metformin I started off with and then hopefully off all meds. I used to brag to my cousin's husband and another friend about my "under 100" numbers. Would take pics of my meter and send it to them. That's what I get, I guess. I got cocky. They chnaged me from Metformin to the other one and then to Januvia. Januvia, for me is when things went down hill. Numbers in the 300s!!!!!

So, I want it to be said I did my part and as I battle this Cushings,, I pray I can control the diabetes enough to get off this insulin - so I'm back because monitoring my food through here will help me see what I"m eating and really and truly see where I've "done too much". Will start tomorrow since I was just discharged from the hospital today.

    I hope that you are feeling better soon. Best wishes with the diabetes. My sister struggles with it also and I know that it is not easy. I am not familiar with Cushings. Tracking your food will definitely help. I totally mess up if I don't track.
