Recently I have been thinking about my diabetes and what it means to me. I have worked VERY hard to get my A1C down to 6.2 but I have also paid a very high price health wise to get there. I take 15 medications a day plus I work out (that is on top of being on my feet all day at work walking at least 2 miles a day) I always have heart burn, constipation, loss of apatite, and so forth. At times I wonder if it is worth it. Then there is the constant disagreements with the doctors office about my treatment, the fight to get refills called in to the pharmacy, and general concern over the level of care I am receiving. Unfortunately I am on state aide so I cannot just switch doctors and move on until I find a doctor I am comfortable with. What I am wondering is do these thoughts occur to others here that it sometimes isn't worth all the trouble to do these things?
