Hi Yall, I go to the doctor on the 18th. We are going to talk to her about going on insulin. I have brittle diabetes and have no control. Its a constant rollercoaster ride. Have a LOT of trouble keeping my BG up. It drops several times a day and its hard to get it up and keep it up. But then after I get it up my BG spikes to 237 or more. I am eating snacks, I am meeting my carbs but still drop. I am not scared of insulin anymore. I dont know what else to do. It has been almost six months since I was diagnosed with type2 diabetes and have done exactly what the doctor has said. I have followed directions, suggestions and ideas. I am either droping and fighting to keep my BG up and feeling weak, dizzy or exausted or my BG is to high and I feel weak, dizzy and walkin like I have rubbery legs. I cant work, I am having trouble standing up to do dishes. I have so much more bad days then good. We are going to have to try something else. So, thats why we are going to talk to doctor about insulin. I have been told by some people that I need to back off of my meds and just control my diabetes with diet and excersize. That is not the answer!!! We have got to address the diabetes. I am ready!!!! I want my life back!!! I just got a new horse that I want to ride sooooo badly, but I cant if I have no control and will drop while riding her. I lunged her yesterday and did some ground work with her. I ate before I went to her and still passed out in the field. Thank god hubby was with me. That man has saved my life soooo many times. I know how lucky I am to have him. I should be controling my diabetes not my diabetes controling me. But that is whats happening. My diabetes is controling me and I am sick of it!!! Its time for me to take control. I need help to do it. I cant do it on my own. I have prayed and prayed for an answer, a cure. Now, I am praying for control and help. I live my life by the serinity prayer. "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change." I cant change that I am a diabetic. " The courage to change the things I can". I have the courage but I do need help. " and the wisdom to know the difference." I know the difference and am ready, willing and able to change. Lord help me!!!!!!
