The Journey: Episode Thirteen

JUNE 8, 2020

So I had my doctor appointment on May 28. I was given an insulin limit of 85 units. On May 29, I went up to 75 units and decided to stay at that dose, mostly because my pens have about 300 units each and that gives me four doses per pen. Since I have to pay about $100 per box of five pens, I can’t really afford to increase.

I have tried out taking my insulin literally within an hour of going to sleep and I have seen my blood sugar go down in the morning. Not down to the goal level, but pretty close. So far I have been under 150 mg/dL so that’s at least a win.

I kind of hit a plateau. My weight, my medication, my blood sugar, all kind of hit a level plateau for the last couple of weeks. It’s not great, but it’s not bad either. Now I just need to bring all of these numbers down instead of going up. I hope that I can do that. I need to get my health and diabetes under control.

This pandemic isn’t doing me any favors and not being able to work is really bringing me down, but I can get through this. I can make it through this and come out for the better. I know I can.

On another note, my sister is back home from visiting with her husband. The plan is for her to completely move out and in with her husband by the end of July. Then my husband and I can move in to her room and we can actually sleep on a bed again with a little bit more privacy. I think I’m going to miss her, but she’s so annoying that I think it’s going to take a while before I miss her at all. I know I’m going to miss her cat, Penny, because she hunts the cockroaches in this house and she does a good job at it.

I know this one is a little short, but I have to take my dog to the salon now. Thank you for sticking around and enjoying the content. Stay safe out there!
