I hopefully wouldn’t be so damn concentrated on myself. I wouldn’t be so worried about dying early. I would not be attached to a CGM which seems to dictate my every move. If I hadn’t been dx in 1959 with 22 yrs of faulty urine testing and if I hadn’t blindly followed a very low carb diet while ignoring my rising LDL maybe I could have avoided heart stents.
I had an ultra sound yesterday on my carotid arteries and am now very worried about what the results will be.
Although I don’t think diabetes is nearly as awful as some diseases, this is bad enough. I get tired of it especially after a week of rollercoaster bloodsugars. After two nights of giving shots throughout the night I finally figured out that my 20 day old Tresiba pen was no longer giving me insulin that actually worked. I am thankful that since I changed pens I am now off the rollercoaster, but I am pretty sick of diabetes at the moment.
I wouldn’t mind living a healthy life where my eating isn’t strictly monitored and I could skip riding the bike once in awhile.
I am sick of focusing my every move on this disease. Before stents I really never thought I would die early, now it is a daily worry.
Just want to add that I am more than grateful for my CGM, because it will hopefully help to extend my life. I am very happy that people now being diagnosed with diabetes will be able to live long healthy lives as long as they pay attention to their illness.
