Hello. I'm Joni. I'm 33 years old. I got dx'ed with type 2 diabetes in November of 2009. I'm on metformin, 2000 mg a day, glyburide, 5 mg, leviemer flex pen, 26 units at night, and humalog flexpen, with meals. I can NOT control my levels. I do from one extreme to the other. I'm either way too high or way too low. It's crazy and drives me insane. I'm trying to eat a lot healthier, and watch my portions, but nothing seems to help. I'm upset with it. When I was first dx'ed my normal range was 400-550. It is coming down, slowly. My normal now is between 350-250. Sometimes it's in the high 100's. It gets disappointing trying to control it. But I'm determined to beat it. Just hope that I can.
I also have PTSD, depression, anxiety, liver issues, low self-esteem, and social phobia, but not to an extreme. I can be around people, just not crowds.
I'm looking forward to making some friends here.
Thanks for reading!!
