Endocrinology apt today
My endocrinologist appointment today got me like 👆🏼 #whoa! IN A GOOD WAY. 😃
• My A1C went from 6.6% in December 2018 to 5.7% today!
• My average blood glucose 💉is in range 97% of the time.
For those of you who don’t know what this means, I have what looks like early stages of an #autoimmune disease called #Type1Diabetes. Because it’s in the early stages, I don’t need insulin…YET. Hopefully, I never need insulin (Dear Pancreas, hang in there and I will love you so good!) Many people don’t often discover T1D in its early phases the way I’ve stumbled upon it, so this may come as a shock to some of you. Most people discover T1D when they are peeing too frequently, feeling super thirsty, have lost a ton of weight, and their blood glucose is really high >>> often landing them in the hospital, in #ketoacidosis , resulting in a clinical diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes.
What the fuck have I been doing?
In 5 months, I have done some SERIOUSSSSSSSSSS self care, self work and prioritization. Some of you may have felt like I’ve pushed you off, or gone dark from communications a little bit. It’s only because I need time by myself to figure out what matters >>> my body. my spirit.

God damn. @mallycreative — I thought of you instantly. @kolina.nikolay : it reminded me of you too. I discovered it by searching #rosegold
