I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s yesterday. I can’t say I was exactly surprised, but it’s still a bummer… just one more thing to add to the list… now I wonder if more autoimmune junk won’t be coming my way too… really my biggest fear is celiac, I don’t want to have to deal with that one…ever I mean, I’m sure I could if I had to, but it just seems tough.
On the bright side, after 9 years with T1, my kidney function is perfect, my eyes still look great, and aside from my cholesterol being a bit out of whack likely from the thyroid issue, I’m doing great… that makes me happy. I am complication free and I hope to remain so for a long time - I think with the newer D technologies being developed all the time, the odds are really on my side there
I’ve finally started the process to get back on a pump too. I saw my CDE yesterday and she agreed to let me “skip” the next two parts of the education series she normally does with patients pre-pump since it’s clear I know what I am getting into (plus I was pumping before, so none of it is super new), but I do have to meet with a dietitian in a couple of weeks to make sure I know how to carb count (ugh) - they couldn’t waive that one for me, even though clearly it’s what I’m already doing and what I’ve been doing since 2001, but then I will be approved to order my pump and my pump "re"start is scheduled for 5 weeks from now… woohoo!
Now to just figure out how to come up with my $2500 deductible… ouch! Oh yeah, and figure out what color I want… I’m going to be getting a PING, and I’m torn between green and pink! I think I’m leaming towards pink with a green skin, but I may change my mind… at least with the skins I won’t be stuck with one color anyways
