So this thursday is the day that i officially start insulin. You may be wondering why I am not already on insulin (no I am not a type 2), I am a type 1.5, so since i was diagnosed over a year ago, my honeymoon period has allowed me to coast on diet restrictions and type 2 meds alone, untill now.
My sugars have been bad lately, so my family doctor said that it was likely a good idea to start insulin now. I have an appointment with my endo's nurse this thursday. Im starting on only a nighttime insulin.
I know that compaired to most people thats nothing, my situation is very unique. Its a big step for me and im more than a little bit scared, its all i can think about right now. I know that i will manage fine, im just terrified to start it.
I guess im just down in the dumps right now. I would really appreciate some advice from anyone.. or maybe a little cheering up.
