Infamous Endo Update.

Beware angry Diabetic teen ahead:

Still no reply from the Infamous Endo (IE). Curious, very curious. I love the fact that when I sent him an email about he home schooling I am doing so that he could explore it for his kids, response in a few hours. Yet, where my health is concerned I have waited almost 4 days, I mean just a simple reply would work. I am not asking him to answer any questions, just respond! Just because 2 of those days are the weekend doesn’t matter, it takes about 2 minutes to jot a simple reply to at least let someone know you got the email. And HELLO! Email doesn’t just work in the office! Okay maybe I’m being harsh, but you know diabetes is harsh and I am taking a stand for myself. In no way do I think that pumping will be the solution to my all of my problems. I’m just asking for the chance to put it on the discussion table. Diabetor and I are going to be together forever, and I want to know that I have done everything possible to make sure that forever is a long forever not a short one. Seriously, am I asking too much? I really don’t think I am. Maybe I’m just cranky since I have to get up at 3 every morning to preemptively correct my dawn phenomenon. Maybe I just don’t want to deal with 7+ shots a day any more. Maybe it’s because after almost 11 years I finally see this is going to be forever, forever. Not just the next few years. Maybe I just wish this wasn’t my burden at all. But I don’t think I am asking too much for a response! I seriously don’t want my next post to have to be about finding a new endo, but start thinking just in case.

PS. If your suggestions involve me returning as a patient to Children’s Hospital, save them. I’ve been there and done that. Surprisingly IE is way better than those people.

UPDATE 9:35 pm

He emailed back!!!!
"I would suggest that you undergo a 3 day continuous glucose monitoring study tosee if that is indeed what is going on. Call me in the office to arrange."

So I'm done being pissed off.

That should be interesting. I'll be you're surprised by the results.

I hope it goes well.
