Well ive been type1 for 10 years now. my diabetes history is pretty awful. at the time my mom was on disability and we lived 3hours from Sacramento, so she couldnt take me to a specialist often. so when i got my pump i never went back again so i never got proper training to use my pump. i mediocre took care of myself. we moved to GA and i was kicked off of medicaid because i was 19 at the time, so i had no way to get insulin or pump supplies anymore. and it was 2009. GA was still suffering from the recession and i couldnt land a job because no one was hiring. i lived off of charity of a free clinic i went to. finally got a job and attend school and i used all of my 20hour 7.25 an hour paycheck on rent and diabetic supplies. still not ever being able to see a doctor or an educator.
fast forward to recently. had insurance under the marketplace and now i have some through my job. I have an endo, but he doesn’t take care of me. He started me on tresiba and afrezza. my A1C was 9%. The tresiba is god send. I love it. the afrezza worked for the first couple of months. its been 4months and afrezza doesnt work like it use to. I have to use double of what i used to use which i didnt figure out till i read some forums here. I called my dr. office and one of his techs said that other paitents are saying the same thing.
I think i need a new fast acting insulin but i dont know which one. for years ive been using novolin R because thats all i could afford.
i just bought some novolin R because i’m losing hope. but i’m sort of scared to use it because i dont want to go low. sigh. my primary care doctor referred me to a new endo, but i havent recieved any phone calls and she didnt exactly hand me a referral or anything, so idk how thats going to work. i am lost, so here i am
