Hi. I just had a recheck on my A1c…it is 7.1 (same as it was in April of this year). Still waiting for dr. recommendations. This is starting to scare me. I am currently on 2000 mg of metformin daily…very nervous about switching meds which is what I think she has planned for me. I started an exercise program and trying to eat better 8/1/09…which I think helped keep my A1c down rather than raise it. I already have an anxiety disorder and I'm telling you that this whole diabetes thing just makes it 10 times worse. I have testing phobia as well so rarely test. Something I'm trying to get over. Just looking for some support and encouragement…it all just scares me which I know is a common reaction. I've only been dealing with this diagnosis approx. 2 years and it's like I found out yesterday.
