Diagnosis - Diabetes, Type 2 - you are given a prescription for medication and told how to take it and the need to lose 50+ pounds. Then you leave the doctors office and that's it, except for regular check-ups about every quarter and blood work. Nothing changes except your life. Your doctor doesn't seem to listen and you continue to feel bad. Trying not to complain, you continue to explain your symptoms but because your numbers are okay, no one listens…but you still feel bad and seem to be getting worse. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, pains, nauseous, headaches, rashes, weakness, etc., more meds and life goes on. Symptoms continue with little concern from your doctor, more blood tests. Face the fact, you are diabetic. Deal with it! Lose weight and your life will change. It has taken two years to get a referral to an endocrinologist. All I want is to feel normal again. Check to see if different meds are needed, help relieve my pain. I have insurance, do some tests, check everything you can think of to eliminate these symptoms. Why? I want to feel normal but it feels as if my life has ended…test, record, take meds, eat, test, record, snack, test, record, eat, test, record, etc. I find it difficult to eat when I am not hungry. Please help with some answers! Thanks for allowing me to vent. I feel as if I am on a roller coaster and I want to get off. I AM SO TIRED.
