frustrated, no hope
Tuesday, December 10, 2019
well things continue to be stressful here. Saw my cardiologist today and after waiting over 2 hours to see him, he says everything with my heart is where he wants it, just lose weight and get my diabetes under control. Gee, thanks, Captain Obvious. Like my husband said, if I needed to quit smoking or drinking, they would have tons of resources for me. But they like to tell you to lose weight, then send you on your way. Yes, I know ways to make that happen. but smokers and drinkers also know how to make it happen. I just don't understand why overweight/obese diabetics are just sent along their way. I'm doing lots of damage to my body too. My doctor even said my diabetes can hurt my organs. Well then help me doc! I even tried to get in to our diabetic educator at the hospital where I work. My one on one meeting was fine, but the info I really wanted is in their all day class. That I really can't take off to attend. So that was a bust.
Blood sugar is 339 right now. It was over 300 this morning. I have a horrible headache and my vision is blurry. I see my endocrinologist next week, but I have no hope of his help because he hasn't given me much either. 4 months ago he told me to just lose weight.
