Has it really been 3 weeks?

In my defense I spent one of those weeks in VA. But that is a different post.

On April 30th I was given a prescription for an insulin pen. I promptly tried to fill said prescription only to leave the pharmacy with the drug but no needles. My doctor forgot to prescribe those.

So on May 2nd I began nightly injections. The dosage has slowly gone up each night, and I think I may be almost at the right place.

I have never had problems with needles, so I wasn't too worried about it. But even someone with an adverse fear couldn't really complain too much. The needle is ultra fine and you don't feel it. Course I am injecting it into the fat on my stomach around my belly button. Which is exactly how the nutritionist described the process to me.

So things are moving along on that front. I have 2 nutrition classes coming up, a follow-up appointment with endocrinology, and we finally scheduled A for a physical near the end of the month.


I wish I could say there was more going on, but in all honesty it's just been the status quo here. I do plan to write about the trip and what we are working on as far as our future together. But first I need to get caught up with work!


  1. Do you feel differently now that you're on insulin?

  2. I don't feel any different, but my blood sugar is better. There will be more posting! I promise!
