Reintroduction: RottyLover
Hi all. I have been MIA, my husband of 40 years went into hospice in April and died Oct. 29. So I have been fighting the grief and depression. I had lost about 140 pounds over the course of a year and a half and was decreasing all my meds. Finally, my last fasting A1C, after 3 months on no diabetes meds at all has remained at 4.6. I have gained back about 10 pounds and have been holding steady at that for about 2 months. I still walk on the treadmill every day, at least one hour, some days 2,3 or 4. Not all at once. I am really fighting not to overeat and to cut back on the nutter butters I became addicted to when Jim died. Old habits die hard. Going in tomorrow to get injection in my knee and found I have pretty bad arthritis in my neck and shoulders, along with a small tear in my rotator cuff. Seeing a neurosurgeon next month about a problem with my neck, possible disc issue. Also found out I have cataracts and some macular thing, no surgery needed yet. So that's my life the last 9 months.

RottyLover, thank you for updating us. My condolences on the loss of your husband -- and on the other medical complications you're experiencing.

Please consider this forum a place to find support in maintaining your excellent A1c results and your efforts to not let old habits take hold. Wishing you peace...
