Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

There’s only like 6 of us on right now.

I miss Dane Lady and MaoriBoy and Eyeforgot and a whole bunch of other folks who posted here. I’m sad. I was sad yesterday for no reason and today I found out that someone I randomly thought of died recently, way too young. Life’s too ******* short.

Damn. Mice found the 50 lb bag of grass seed in the basement. Awesome.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

So...another whining session...

But first...my foot is doing a TON better. I'm able to walk now unassisted. Have been walking for the past few days. Still some pain, but it's getting better daily. I was even up doing a bunch of running around down town and grocery shopping today! Zero pain when I'm not using the foot! So that's awesome!

-I had a dream last night that's been lingering with me all day. I ran into my parent's old living room and my mom was laying on the couch...and I just knew she had passed away. I started to scream and to cry and to sob...but then she woke up and told me everything was okay! It was just a dream.
****

-During the night and bunch of my joints really started to hurt with very sharp pains. Especially my shoulders.
Not sure what that was about but I do feel better for the most part tonight.

-I went to the hospital a few weeks ago, and they changed the dosing of my insulin around on me...but I hadn't realized how much till I went to go pick more up today at the pharmacy.
I was prescribed 150 units of my fast acting insulin twice a day (I realize that's a HUGE amount)...the hospital changed it to 8 units 3x a day. Are you kidding me? I went from 300 units a day (and often times I was taking even more than this) down to 24.
I'm feeling miserable tonight from it...but I can't take my usual doses because I'll just run out of what they gave me today and then my insurance wont cover more and I'll be left with none at all and will really be screwed.
I e-mailed my doctor tonight explaining things. He's super good at getting back to me, and I just don't think he realized how drastically they changed my dose on me. I'm pretty sure he'll be happy to work with me to up my dose again.
...on a positive note, my A1C was a 7.1 yesterday...which is the best I've had since developing diabetes!

-I'm lonely. And I'm sad. I don't have any friends really...and I don't have any family I'm comfortable with.
I have no one to hang out with. No one to call.
I'm just feeling very alone.

-I only have 1 week left of having a car.
My driver's license has expired and I can't get a new one because I can't pass the eye exam they gave me...can't afford new glasses. I don't have any insurance on my car...and at the end of this month my registration tags expire. /sigh...I've been driving the car around with no insurance and no license, but I refuse to drive it with no tags. The police in my town keep an eye on that...and I actually got 2 tickets for it just 2 years ago. I'd REALLY be screwed if they pulled me over now.
I don't know what I'm going to do. It's overwhelming me a bit right now. I don't have friends or family to drive me around...there are buses and I can even qualify for a senior bus...but what am I going to do when I want to do a bunch of grocery shopping? Or to go out for some food?
I'm going to end up sitting in my apartment alone all day every day without the ability to go anywhere and it's going to become very dark I think.
I'm trying not to think about it.

-I have a TON of things I'm doing right now...and damn I'm trying to keep my head above water. Appointments and paperwork and stuff with my insurrance and all these damned adult things.
And I'm struggling to keep it all together. I'm trying so hard...I feel my battery draining.

-I've been very sad and depressed and things feel very dark and my mood has plummeted today.
I've broke out into tears a couple of times today.

-The lady I see who comes over once a week got her schedule mixed up and so I wasn't able to see her. Realy could use someone to talk to right now. I feel so lonely. So alone.

-Feels like it's just one of those days where things just don't want to line up for me.

-I'm super tired tonight but I know full well I'll be up needing to pee at least once an hour because I can tell my sugar levels are too high. I don't have enough insulin in my system. I'm going to have a very miserable night.

-I realize I'm pathetic.
I'm just depressed. I'm trying to hold on.
Meh.

The more I think about this, the more annoyed I am about it.
The doctors who switched my dosing around didn't even bother to call my regular doctor which he's super annoyed about. Him and I have been working together for years, and though he's not happy with the huge amount of insulin I'm on (he says I'm taking more than anyone else he's ever known)...it took us a very long time to get to a dose that seems to keep me pretty stable (as long as I'm not being stupid and skip doses or something).
They took me from 300 units of it a day...down to less than 25? That seems super drastic! Ridiculous!
I gave myself the 8 units from the new dose yesterday at dinner...but I felt like I mine as well have just injected myself with some tap water. It did nothing for me.
I finally gave up several hours later and gave myself more because I could feel that my sugars were running way too high.

My doc did send over a new prescription for me though thankfully...he too lowered it, but not anywhere near as much. He bumped it from 150 units twice a day...to 100 units twice a day. He wants me to check my numbers just once in the mornings and I meet with him again in 2 weeks and we'll go from there.

I'm just annoyed that they cut me back so insanely low. I don't know what the **** they were thinking. And that they didn't even call or visit with my prescribing doctor about it to get his thoughts? Dang man.

It's awesome that your A1C number was so low. Hope the change in meds
doesn't screw that up. Nove sees her diabetes doc this afternoon, I'm kinda
nervous to see what her A1C number is like. She had 2 days off school last
week for in service or something and my brain was hurting so bad I totally
forgot to test her and give her a shot at lunch. Ugh.

What would you tell someone who says he sends spoof emails to someone, but feels scared to death as soon as he sends them?
