So far, things have been much easier than I thought they would be. I think having this outlet has been the difference. I know it is still early, and I do expect some goof ups and some down days, but right now I am feeling very positive about this entire journey to recovery. I think once my body starts to gain more weight, though, I will begin to get much more discouraged. When I am feeling down about myself, I don't seem to want to fight so hard.
Yesterday was a good day, until I went to eat at a restaurant. But to be honest, even then it wasn't too bad. I got home and my BS was in the 300s, so I took insulin and then before bed again, it was in the 300s, so I took more. Well just now it was 116, so it worked. (Although I SHOULD have checked it in the middle of the night to make sure it was ok, oh well, next time).
Of course, I didn't schedule an appointment yet, but I am getting there. I am just not quite ready.
