NOBODY had a Better Tuesday than ME!!!
Here's were things get impressive. I went into the lab where I tested my sugar with my own meter (115 thank god! there is nothing worse than being high at the endo)and then she used the extra blood on another testing strip. Within 5 min the had my A1C!!! CRAZY! They also downloaded all the tests of my meter onto the computer which I didn't even know you could do! (PS. 7/12/o5 my A1C was 9.5 and last night it was 7.2! I can't even explain how great that felt.)
Dr. Robin Goland in my new endo and is the first doctor I have dealt with during the course of this disease who talked to me (as opposed to at me), looked at me when I talked, cared about my story, and I never felt like she was rushed or my questions were stupid. She had all the time in the world for me.
She asked me to rate how I felt about diabetes on a scale of 1 to 10. 1 being I hate this and I would rather be dead and 10 being I have never been happier. I choked out a 3 and then lost it. She says everyone cries but I think I broke some kind of record. At the most touching part was she teared up too.
I also got to meet Leigh who will be my diabetic educator. She herself has been a diabetic since her teens and is pregnant! When I heard that I felt like I had been punched in the chest. I couldn't breathe and started sobbing. I have been told that I wouldn't be able to have kids by some very mean and stupid people and standing before me was a young, healthy type 1 diabetic who will deliver a wonderfully healthy child. Leigh, Dr. Goland, and I all needed tissues and a deep breathe.
I have been panicked recently and I feel an amazing sense of calm today. These people care soo much about me already and we just met. I can't believe I am this lucky! I have the worst f-ing luck in the world so I guess I deserve a break!
