Diagnosed in 2007 as type 2 — initially was extremely motivated, tracked food, exercise, glucose levels almost obsessively — started with Januvia — plateaued out and was switched to Janumet… recently had ACTOS added as well.
ACTOS is horrible… my feet and ankles swell until they ache and no longer look human. I stopped taking it.
I resent having "special" foods on the shelf "for mom." I'm really struggling with my attitude. Sugar is not under control; don't want to go to the doc because she will just be mad at me. ggrrr
I know if I see my doc, she will put me on insulin. I feel like if that happens, I really AM a failure. Just frustrated.
