[IP] Re: venting
Thanks for the support everyone, sometimes I guess we all just need to
vent. Thanks :)
Valerie, I LOVE your outlook!!
At least you've got a safe place with with IP, where we all understand
you're coming from.
I don't allow my doctors to tell me I'm more prone to anything just because
I'm a diabetic. I tell them to keep it to themselves because I just don't
buy it. Whether or not I am actually prone to anything, I work very, very
hard to keep everything in normal range and I don't need them harshing my
Susan I actually just did my first 3 days with a CGM through my endos
office. The economy being what it is, even with insurance over the years, it
been hard to pay for the prescriptions that go along with type 1, and have
extra funds to cover everything else (doctors, etc) so I have been
skipping on things that I didn't really NEED, not to say I dont need an endo,
saying if it comes between paying my copay for a specialist, and paying my
copay for my meds, well then meds it is. I am finally digging out of my
financial hole, and starting to get the proper care back on track. Had a CGM
put in for 3 days, just went over the results with the nurse, they will be
fighting my insurance company to get me a CGM, but who knows how long that
will take. My endo has me attending an diabetes class as a refesher,

that would apply to me, everything seems aimed at type 2's, and though
educational, I dont see my beta cells getting a much needed a break if I drop
weight and exercise. Damn things have been on a permanent break since 1977.
But I am told it is another step to show the insuance company that I am
serious about control.
Jennifer, I'm glad you could vent to all of us. I do have a question:
said that your 10 year old saves you from severe lows. Did you ever have a
continuous glucose monitor? I've been using one and I just can't be
it. It's hard to afford, but I afford it anyway. Is there any way that
could possibly get one?
