Hi everyone, hope you're all doing okay. I've had a couple of messages asking how I'm doing, so I thought I'd post an update in case anyone is interested. Diabetes-wise, things are getting a lot better. I've switched back to Novolog from Apidra and now things actually seem to make sense. Figuring out adjustments for the weeks I'm on the BC pill vs. the week I'm off it, as that affects things, but it is really encouraging that my adjustments actually work now. I've been dieting as well, so I'm not sure if that has had a positive improvement on D stuff. I've heard a lot about how tough it is to diet with D, but I'm pleased that for me it actually hasn't been that bad. I started at 142lbs, not overweight (I'm 5ft 6) but I was gaining steadily. Just over a month in, I'm at 132lbs and I've been exercising a lot, which is good (physically and emotionally). Happy about that, especially if it's improved things with D. My meter average is now around 160, and it was over 200 before. Still some work to do, but I'm hoping in December my a1C will be back below 8. Mental health stuff is more complicated, but I'm getting fairly intensive help and people keep telling me that's the most important thing. I'm seeing a psychiatrist on a regular basis, plus having cognitive behavioural therapy, relaxation/meditation/general self-help exercises and anti-depressants. I was previously on Citalopram, and I didn't know whether it had helped or not (I was functional, but barely and not able to do a lot) so psychiatrist switched me to Sertraline. In the week where I was coming off Citalopram and Sertraline hadn't kicked in yet my mood plummetted to the point that I was totally not functioning at all. Since I've been on Sertraline I'm back up to the point that I was at on Citalopram. It's not great, I am generally functioning at quite a low level. I can just about get myself to work in the morning, but once I'm home I'm exhausted and I really need the weekend for recovery. It's hard to even describe how difficult it is, but I'm trying, and hoping that I'll be able to deal with the workload when I get back to university. The problem is, I'm functioning at such a low level that it's really hard and sometimes impossible to put CBT and self-help stuff into action. I might be switched to another medication to try to get me to a point where I can respond to these things; will see at my psych appointment on 29th. This has turned into a really long post; sorry about that. Just wanted to let you know how it's going, and recently I've been awful at replying to PMs (sorry!). If anyone has experience with any of the stuff I've talked about, I'm (as always) grateful for any advice/support.
