I am usually a positive person. I have tried to understand that this can be regulated. This is not the end of the world. I have willpower and I am strong minded. I got this.
But checking my blood four times a day is a reminder four times a day that my life has changed. The oral meds and injections make me feel nauseous and give me diarrhea. I walk through the grocery store thinking of all the foods I can no longer enjoy. My wife reminded me that tonight that I could not have cocktail sauce on my shrimp and I snapped at her. This is not her fault.I apologized and I made my own sauce that was healthy and pretty good using Franks Hot Sauce, horse radish, wishteshire , V8, a squeeze of lemon and coconut oil. She put the cocktail sauce back in the fridge and ate my concoction instead. (I have a GREAT WIFE)
I am worried that if I am this down after only three weeks, what will I be like after grinding this out day after day for years?
