As i've posted before and not too long ago
I am preparing myself
and my body for the Insulin Pump.
Not only is it still a little scary to me,
as I feel there will be LOTS of unknown's
the prep work at making sure I am taking my blood sugar
every time I eat,
PLUS 2 hours after
and then with this new insulin
I am on
oh and not to mention,
I am testing anywhere from 5-9 times a day right now
and use 6 different needles to inject insulin a DAY.
(I know some people reuse needles to save,
but it gives me that rotten pain in the stomach when I think about it)
I also, in addition to these extra testings and Insulin Injections
I am also having to write down
this includes amounts of items of course, like my sandwich yesterday
2/3 cup Buffalo Chicken Pieces
2 triangles of Provolone
approx. 1/2 Cup shredded lettuce
4 slice of cucumber
7 pieces.slices of Green pepper
for ONE sandwich.
This doesn't include my drink or soup.
ugghh.. I know not EVERYONE can relate but this
is seriously a
FULL TIME JOB.
too bad I already have one, and bills can't pay themselves..
