It is that time again to hit the blog trail again! Sadly lacking over the last couple of months, so please do except my apologies. The 2 lads in the picture have something to do with that!
Personally for me, things are real tough with no sign of relenting. I find that when times are hard, one’s own health does suffer not only physically but psychologically. No more than now!
Just the other week I had a Endo appt. which to be honest was disappointing as it felt as though I had wasted both mine and the doctors time. Hindsight would suggest that the appt. could have taken place via email for example.
It did return a A1c of 7.7%! Not so bad you say; and I guess it could be worse but we are swinging wildly from the glucose branches at the moment which results in a massive deviation everyday.
I have discussed a pump with my doctor but still face a battle to get him to give me the nod and put me forward for one. Frustrating to say the least but all I can do is manage accordingly, keep pushing, keep learning, keep advocating and keep trying to look after myself. “easier said than done, though”.
In readiness, and to demonstrate my readiness I have even picked up a copy of “Pumping Insulin”, started to read last night and will hopefully help me decide if I am ready to use a pump first off and if ready to be able to hit the ground running. We shall see!
That said is a little update on me. If you are facebook please head on over and like my Diabetes in Spain Facebook Page, would appreciate the like love.
Until then salud@s
