The 3 D's

Diabetes, Depressed and it's that time of Da month.

Enough said?

Seriously, though, I have lots of things that I'd like to post, but I've been feeling kind of blah. Okay, not kind of...really blah. I covet my bed and I wish I could retreat to the cool darkness of my room during the day.

And really, Arizona? 105 degrees still? Give this mama a break.

I'm waiting for a call back from the endo again - Adam's been bottoming out after breakfast...this morning an hour and a half after his insulin, he was at 55. Gah. If I don't get a call back today, I'm adjusting his dose myself.


  1. Oh NO... THOSE 3 "D's" - here's another "d" - YOU'RE DOOMED - LOL.

    Hang in there...and I hope you hear from Endo today. Bummer on the lows. (((HUGS)))

  2. The "perfect storm". Ugh, I hate when I get hit by a bunch of stuff at once. Hope you emerge from the funk soon, and that your endo will get back to you SOON! Our CDEs never did and that was the kick in the pants I needed to do adjustments on my own... I just got tired of waiting. It did take me until 6 months post-dx to work up the nerve to do it, though!

  3. I hope you get feeling better! I guess I can't complain about it being in the upper 80's in Utah.
    Best wishes, and hopefully you get a rest soon!

  4. Hang in there! From our experience and from all my readings that 1st meal of the day (breakfast of course) is a perpetual bear for those with the D. We still haven't beat that beastly spike after breakfast yet...it's almost more of a timing thing I think...but I haven't really figured it out yet?! Damn D! In the beginning when I wanted the endo to call back (hee hee) I would call and leave a message that I was going to change this carb ratio or that basal and wanted the endo to verify what I was doing was ok. It usually got a response (even if I had no intent of doing it on my own!) pretty quick, they don't want us newbies gettin' too big for our britches right off the bat! Little sneaky I know...but hey you need your info to get a handle on the lows. Good luck!!!

  5. Enough said, new friend! I've totally been there...in fact I was there just a week ago! Hope your endo is helpful in adjusting for those lows! Next week will be better...keep your eye on the prize!

  6. We live in small town with no endos. Pediatricians don't seem really into helping with the day to day. We speak to our CDE when we want to make a major change but otherwise we make needed adjustments on our own.

  7. Three D's - a triple threat! Been there, done that. Not fun. I'm sorry you're not all sunshine and smiles. :( It's been a few days since you posted that, so I'm hoping you're doing better now!!! ((HUGS))
