I said I would give you guys an update and that is what I shall do. I have had a lot of ups and downs with these medication changes. I did a lot of crying, had to re enlist the help of my therapist again, and just sleep a lot of things off. I had to accept help from people that I have never met in my life that truly really cared about me. It was an eye opening experience.
Right now, I can say that I am doing a lot better (except that the medication changes have messed up my menstrual cycles so I get two week periods which sucks). I have a lot more support because I have opened up more to people.
According to my A1C, technically, the diabetes (AKA DM) is gone but my doc wants me off the Metformin for 3 mos to retest before we truly wave goodbye to that trash. I stopped taking it the day she sent me my lab results. So I will retest and see her. Wanna know how much weight I have lost? Almost 30 lbs. And this is mainly because of the med change. I haven’t been working out as much (sprained my ankles) but I have been eating right. But most of this is from me pretty much not eating at night (which the Seroquel makes me do). Anyhow, this is just a quick check in for you guys (that cared).
Once my ankle heals, my dog and I will be out there killing the hills and I will be back on my weights again (I mainly do upper body things now and light elliptical work). I’m sure Gary will be happy for those walks again.
Thanks for reading. 🙂
