I have a doctor visit tomorrow and I know that I am going to get yelled at. I have not been eating properly and I have not been testing. I have gained about 10 pounds since my last visit and I have not exercised at all. My A1c was 5.4 on my last visit but I know that it will not be that low this time, I don't need to test to tell me that. Going to Jack in the Box three times a week will not get you a good A1c.
I am not sure what I will tell the doc. I have been going through a very hard time the last three months. I lost one of my part time jobs. I feel hungry all the time. I feel like my brain is not working because I can't remember to do stuff or follow through on things. I am depressed all the time because i know what I am supposed to be doing but I am not doing it. I think the bottom line is I just stopped caring. I want to care but I can't figure out why I don't.
I was diagnosed last Sept 10th. I was so gung ho about changing my ways and was just happy to find out there was something wrong with me. I thought I could take on DM and I actually enjoyed the diet change and working on making me better. I lost 80 pounds in my first 6 months. My wife was so proud of me. Now I just eat what I want and don't do anything that is going to help me. How do I get back to where I was???
