I have medicaid and all of my medical care is done through clinics, which in my case has worked great. I go to a large, well-respected hospital and feel very well taken care of. I see the same doctors consistently, and because all of my doctors are based in this one hospital, my records are in one system. It's all good... BUT my experience with the endocrinology clinic has been bad. As a result, I don't think I've gained as much insight into how to deal with diabetes as I might have. I have been struggling with FATIGUE, usually after eating, and it's gotten worse. After first being put on diabetes meds, I was actually having more episodes of low blood sugar... irritability and shaky hands if I didn't get food into me. But that has changed and it has me on alert. I admit I've gotten lazy with my eating habits, but it's mainly due to being low on money. Crappy food is cheaper. I need some intervention and intensive guidance about how to get it back under control so I don't have to start shooting insulin. I don't have a specific question right now, but I'll be paying attention and reading the posts. Thanks.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
