Hey guys, It's been a few years since my last post. So I'd just like to say hi again! Anyway. This is the first time I've actually been worried about going back to school. I had a Cortisone injection and, for the first time in years, I have no idea what my insulin doses should be AND I'm going back to school in 2 days!!! agh! Back in January I sprained my ankle very badly and it still hasn't healed yet. Until a few days ago, I was unable to run or put weight on my toes. I went to a podiatrist who told me that this will take a few years to heal. She told me the only thing she can do in the mean time was a Cortisone injection for the swelling. I said "yes" not knowing what this would do to my blood sugar. Since that shot 4 days ago, my ankle finally feels fine, but my bloodsugar has SKYROCKETED. I've already increased my daily Lantus from 21 to 30 units a day and I'm STILL waking up high. I've even had to DOUBLE my Novolog! You'd think a podiatrist who specializes in diabetics would have warned me! I tried talking to my endo, and she just said to take as much insulin as I have to to bring this down. (I kinda figured that out already) I go back for marching band in 2 days. I still don't even know my insulin doses and now I'm going to add in new exercise into this equation. I don't know how long these highs will last either and I don't want to be out on the field when it finally wears off. As much as I don't want to do band right now, I'm getting a $2000 scholarship from it so I need to go! I guess I just need to vent. This is the first time since highschool that I've literally been scared of my own diabetes. I'm NEVER taking Cortisone again!
