Diabetes and Garbage and Recyling Night...

Medical concerns. Please, please feel free to skip!

So, I think (?) I mentioned today that I tried taking Glipizide again last night (for the first time in weeks).

Um. It's so not working for me.

I was just gathering up garbage and recycling (it's Wednesday night, after all), and I suddenly broke into a HEAVY sweat and started to get shaky. So I think: "Well, I had some candy a bit ago, so I've just made my count go way up." Being me, I go and test it again. (I've done so several times today already.) It's 99 (and clearly dropping).


I mean, I took that pill around 24 hours ago!!! How can it still be impacting me now? But it obviously is.

Yeah, 99 is in the 'normal' range that I'm shooting for. But for me, having been high for so long, I clearly need to slowly work my way back down to normal. When I get below 100, I start to feel BAD. (And I mean bad, as in I can't really function bad.) Marilyn mistressmarilyn wants me OFF the Glipizide, period. I spent much of the day feeling really lousy, and this seems like a ridiculously strong drug. So I think I'm quitting it again for now.

And I'll stop worrying about results that are 150-ish for now, until my body starts coming down gradually...

Right now I need to get back to finishing up the garbage and recycling so we can head to bed. Wish I wasn't in this sick sweat! (sigh)

Ron didn't finish with our computers today, so he'll be back again in the morning. Then we'll both head into the festival office after that.

I couldn't get myself to nap tonight (in spite of being dead tired), so I'm looking forward to heading to bed...
