Do you take the diabetes advice they give you with a grain of salt?
I always have anxiety before doc appointments. I have one coming, and I know my A1C is going to be around 7.7. Urgh. But with all the colds I’ve fought off, fever blister breakouts following (which always send my BG up), adjusting to Tresiba the past month and a half, and still adjusting…
I just feel like I won’t be heard completely.
We know all that goes into our management. Hell, the wind blows and our BG can go haywire. But they don’t always understand that. I feel this way esp. since I only see a PCP and most of these staff only deal with Type 2 patients.
I’m just wondering how you all get around any anxiety or stresses about seeing a doc, esp if your numbers haven’t been great. I’m trying my best to just remember that I know my body and my T1D the best. I won’t neglect any info I’m given, but ultimately I have to experiment and do what’s best for me, since after all, I feel like everyday is an experiment and we just hope we get a good outcome.
We are functioning as our own organ for cryin’ out loud. It’s almost like if we were our own hearts; pumping our chests non stop with no breaks because we would die if we didn’t. If we compressed too hard or too little, it would mess everything up. Why can’t doctors see it that way?
