So I got to the doc this afternoon. I knew I'd get a lecture about my diabetes, and I mostly went because of my back pain. I had been on five meds earlier this year, but had cut that number down to three (Zoloft, Abilify, and Amaryl). After today it'll be pushed up to six meds, with new ones for diabetes (invokana), blood pressure (lisinopril), and cholesterol (simvastatin). Oh, and he suggested using ibuprofen in addition to the Tylenol I am already taking, so I guess that's eight meds total to keep track of.
He also told me that in the next month I had to go to get an eye exam, foot exam, blood test, and x-ray for my back. And my a1c was 13.something. And it took 25 minutes to figure out where my medical records were (they are currently in a different county). This concludes my blog entry for today.
Things can only get better from here
