So, last week, after seeing my numbers, which were basically 100% normal, my endo provisionally changed my diagnosis to T2, pending results from autoantibody tests. Well, those all came back. ICA2 was 2.9 (reference was under 1) and GAD65 was 165 (reference was around 3). Apparently, LADA patients are around 5-10 for GAD65, usually. So, crap, guess I am T1 - on 2 units of basal a day for months. No covering carbs since August. No idea what the hell is going on, and the endo is out of ideas as well.
Right now, I feel a bit like someone kicked me in the tender parts. You know what the odds are, and this is what I was expecting, but still . . . you hold out hope, and think, “well, just maybe . . . .”
And the worst part is, I’m stuck at work, can’t reach my fiancee or mom, and can’t just run off and disappear . . . .
I need a hug.
