I'm usually a very strong person but today I had a major break down and bawled like a baby!! I'm so frustrated with all of this. I am now taking 500mg of Metformin and Diamicron twice a day. I then take my insulin shot at night. This morning my BG was 24mmol. I checked my BG 2 hours after breakfast and I had dropped to 16mmol. I tested before dinner and my BG was 10mmol. I tested again 2 hours after dinner and my BG had dropped to 8.7mmol. About a half an hour later I felt sick and just reallly weird so my husband made me test my blood again. It had raised to 17mmol. That is when I broke down. I hadn't had anything to eat since dinner. I'm still sitting at 17mmol.
The meds I am on are making me feel sick but I know I have to take them. I'm just getting so frustrated because I am doing everything they have told me to do yet I am getting no changes.
I live in a small town 45 minutes from anywhere and I can't drive (doctors orders). It is too cold to go for a walk. I'm getting lonley and starting to get depressed which is not like me at all. I am usually a very upbeat person.
Sorry I just needed to vent and everybody here is always so helpful and so friendly. It's the only place where people understand. Thanks for listening!!
