The ups and downs of the job - a true test
So here I am in the US, now on Metformin SR and the road is bumpy.
So I duly upped my Metformin instant release to three tables a day having not really had many of the more unpleasant symptoms usually associated with these tablets... until I went to three. Severe headaches, dodgy stomach in the morning.
Now as luck would have it I manage to source a Freestyle Libre medical certificate that had been created some enterprising soul and had to go see the doctor anyway, so I pushed my case for the Metformin slow release, and started again.
However, there were still the occasional mornings with a dodgy stomach, still the severe headaches, and not surprisingly these didn't stop when I got Stateside which is challenging when you are stuck in a media centre all day.
But the curious thing for me with the metformin and so many carb heavy places to eat as concessions, I went the other way and was blocked solid. So much so I had to leave the media centre early last night because I felt so unwell - shaky, sick.
Thankfully nature took its course painfully but at least this morning I was able to drag myself to the fitness centre (well crusty treadmill) and a husband and wife team of lovely volunteers in the centre bought me greek yoghurt, berries and I brought a gazillion Oatwell Crispy Heart packages for breakfast.
Hopefully today it is not too late to catch up with a load of things!
