What I take?
My new normal of taking medication has been the challenge I never wanted to face. Now, here I am taking medication to keep my blood glucose levels down. When I first started talking insulin I was taken about 4 shots a day and 5 on Sunday. Yes, my doctor had me taking a slow acting insulin (Lantus) at 40 units for the day. Then I took anywhere from 10-15 units of Novalog before each meal depending on what my blood glucose levels where. Then once a week I take Trulicity in order to help my body’s natural insulin work better. Image never liking needles and then being forced to take shots like you are a human pin cushion. I was so depressed when I started taking insulin. It was a dark place for me. I didn’t want anyone to see me taking the medication or talk about it. I tried my best to hide my feeling on the matter but with no success. Family and friend knew the struggle and they were the rocks I needed in that time. Never knew I had so many people had my back until this happen. As of today my insulin régime has changed for the better. Because I’m watching what I eat and working on living a balanced life. I will give an update soon on where I stand with the insulin as well as my A1c and weight. Looking forward to taking you guys on this journey of living a balance healthy life. Becoming the best version of myself I can be. If you are struggling with some of the same issues. Let me just say YOU WILL MAKE IT! Took me a long time to realize that but I’m happy I know it now. Happy Releasing!
