It has been a stressful week at work. It has been a stressful week with meds- I went back up to 5mg of Zyprexa- in the end insomnia got to me, as it always does. And then my mood started to get bad. So I am back to 5mg. But then this morning I overslept and had to get ready really fast to go to work and forgot to take my morning meds. So I have not been feeling that great, and had a bad headache all day.
I used to carry a day's worth of meds in my purse. But then I used it up the last time I forgot my morning meds, and have never filled it up again. I have to do that again.
But I am really stressed out about something else too. I recently had some blood work done. My fasting blood sugar, which is usually in the low 90's, was 100. That is the very bottom of the pre-diabetic range, and not where I want to be.
I work in healthcare, I see what diabetes can do. I don't want diabetes. So I really need to lose weight, exercise more- and maybe rethink the Zyprexa. I don't know. It is terrible to have to make this kind of a choice. Diabetes vs mental stability.
One of the things I did this past year that may have worked against me is to decrease my resterotrol. I was taking it twice a day- and it seemed to help with my blood sugar. But then I saw an article stating that it can be hard on the liver, so I cut it down to once a day- maybe that didn't helped. I will try going back to twice a day.
