The past couple of weeks have been tiring for both of us. Rick is constantly feeling hungry because he’s not snacking between meals but on the other hand can’t eat a large meal as he feels full quickly. His medication is giving a headache as one drug is reducing over six weeks then stops. The other will increase over six weeks then he will just be on that one for diabetes. This is on top of his pain killers and simvastatin for high cholesterol. Add what I have to take and it feels like a mini chemist in our home.
When we found out what was wrong with Rick my stress would ease which it did for a few days. Now I am even more depressed than I felt before we found out Rick has diabetes. I’m still walking the dogs on my own even though he is feeling better which is annoying me. It’s tiring making Rick eat at regular times as well as normally he wouldn’t eat breakfast but I’m insisting on it. Today I was on such a downer I haven’t taken my tablets but actually feel a bit better now for not taking them.
