Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

I Wanna Be Sedated

Well, we're approaching the first week on Glucophage. At my last exam my level of insulin was high and the dcotor felt I have Metabolic syndrom, AKA insulin resistance. I'm not up to full dose yet, but I'm feeling the effects. I'm much more tired that before. The other day I felt the "sugar crash." I haven't experienced that for a long time.

Hopefully with this treatement I'll be able to lose the weight. I walk about 6 to 10 miles a day at work (I used to wear a pedomoeter) which should be enough to keep trim, but I'm gaining weight (just a little every year, it adds up). I'm over 300lbs right now. I work like a mad man in the yard. Not as much as I used to, but I can still sling wood and dirt better and faster than younger kids (I know this by helping my neighbor, and he hires kids to help).

This weekend we go to twice daily doses. In another two weeks I'll be up to full dose.
