I was just diagnosed with type 2 in May of 2011. I saw a nutritionist, and was not on any medication. I brought my A1C down somehow from 7.2 to 6.8; 2 weeks ago I had another one that read 6.8… ok, no change, but still not 7.2
I stopped seeing the nutritionist in August. It was my own choice.
Recently, I have had some joint pain in various areas. I have been through CT scans, blood work, ultra sounds and a HIDA scan. I get those results on the 15th.
In the meantime, yesterday (11/11/11) my meter registered 230 mg/dl. It had never been this high before, and I haven't done anything differently to cause it. Doctor has me on metformin now.
I am so depressed about this, this is as down as I have ever been. I am scared. I do not understand why it is happening to me. I do not know how to handle it. I can't seem to find any answers to any questions, and really, do I even KNOW what questions need to be answered? I swear this disease is horrible. I am losing any motivation I had to fight it. Been crying for 2 days now. I am only 37 and a mom of two minor children. I'm lost :(
Thanks for listening. I just needed to vent.
