I just got a new Dr because my insurance changed, and I am concerned at all the meds she is throwing at me. A Birth control (i have pcos and was on a 4 week bleed), Metformin (which i am having the standard tummy problems with), and a bp med which i had to cut in half because of side efects and dizzyness, and a Vitamin D3 suplement that i just started today. My A1c is VERY high (11), and i understand the importance of bringing it down, but she also wants me to take a glimipuride. I have taken it before and it killed my libido, but she insists i take it. My metformin is er (Extended Release) and still not up to the full 2000mg she wants me to get to, and My fiance and i are hoping for a family very soon. I have read up on the other side efects and warnings of the Glimiperide and it clearly states to not take it if you plan on becoming pregnant. I feel like my Dr is not listening to me, Especially since she seem so focused on JUST my A1c and not anything to do with my wish to start a family or the original reason i went in. I also understand that it is dangerous to have my A1c so high during pregnancy, and the 1000mg of metformin is actually lowering my blood sugars already (from 200-180 fasting to 146 this morning) and i've only been on it for about 2.5 weeks. I am a little depressed because it seems like i am doing almost everything right, and my a1c is redonkulous, plus I hate the feeling all these meds are giving me. I would just find another Dr, but my insurance SUXXX and the next closest one is 30 minutes away (in good traffic) and i dont want to have to take a day off work because i have a dr apt. Thoughts? Advice? Help? I am feeling like i am losing an up hill battle so encouragement is also welcome.
Look how your sinful hands tainted me. Your fingertips leaving tendrils of fire as you traced my skin. Searing me everywhere. I still smell the smoke. The burn is still as raw as the first day. Look at the mess those sinful hands made. As you shattered me with no regard. Look at the state of my fragile heart. Broken and barely beating underneath your feet. Those sinful hands were all the...
