And so I jump into the blogging world a bit late. I had thought about doing this before, when I was going through the endless nightmare (well, to me, anyway) of trying nothing (thanks, Dr. A!) and all the "usual" treatments. It was just such a negative time, though. Not because of the diagnosis; I had no problem with that (stay with me), but becuase of the utter lack of treatment options for someone like me. Well, there weren't someones like me; that was the problem. I first asked for insulin in January, but I didn't get it until June. It has completely changed my life. I'm not tired all the time, like I was for years before diagnosis (hmm)! I can correct a high before it saps all the energy out of me! It's definitely complicated for me, but I am so willing to do it. I find it sad and wrong when people tell me (and they do tell me) that I shouldn't be on insulin.
So, more about me. My diabetes manifests itself in a strange way. If I don't eat anything, my blood sugar will stay the same for a long time but eventually drop. When I do eat, I'm much like a Type 1. I don't understand it and neither do my doctors. It sounds a bit like MODY, but not entirely. I could try to get the genetic testing and hope I have one of the six genes they know about. It wouldn't change my treatment, though. I already feel like I'm explaining too much, but there's not really a shorthand for "I'm a freak!" Just kidding. Um, hi? How about that Blogger Beta? *ducking*
