Health, mental or physical, is probably more complicated than software. I guess you already knew that, eh. Being old and feeble minded myself I can’t give you any valuable advice. But, since I DO have some extra advise that I haven’t even used today I’d be glad to share it with you.
I’ve been taking prescription antidepressants for a LONG time and am currently using… hmm, what the heck IS that stuff called … it’s an SSRI and since it’s sort of expensive I thought I’d wean myself off of it, but after only about a week I realized that it was actually working, so I went right back on it. I just had a look on the bottle, it’s Viibryd. The cat was on my lap so I had to wait for her to jump down before I went out in the kitchen to get the name.
At any rate I’ve been seeing reports that depression is somehow related to diabetes. Isn’t EVERYTHING? I think more likely LIFE is related to depression. At any rate I used to use an insulin pump but now use Basaglar (twenty in the morning, fifteen at night). During the day I use Novolog and regular insulin (the cheap stuff I can get at Walmart for twenty five bucks a vial). For a little over a month now I’ve been using a Freestyle Libre. So far it has worked really well for me and it has made tracking and correcting my glucose levels actually FUN. How weird is that?
OK, I’ve been retired for about ten years. I was diagnosed with rectal cancer and the chemotherapy ■■■■■■ up my brain. I actually enjoyed the whole thing and had always figured that since I had diabetes I wouldn’t get anything else. Right! It turns out that one can have a LOT of “things”.
When I was forced to actually WORK for a living I was a cardiovascular perfusionist. I’ll let you look that up all by yourself. Once I retired I figured it would kill me. Wrong again. It only took a couple of hours for me to get used to it.
So, lemme know how YOU are doing. I’d really like to hear from you and find out how YOU are dealing with health care issues these days.
