I’ve been living a lie.

I have been living for five years believing I was Type 1 in the United States. I got a call about a blood test I did recently while in Norway to measure how much insulin I actually make. I make insulin, but I just can’t use it which is the description for Type 2 diabetes.

Really?

Today I will be getting different drugs and starting a different diabetes attack plan. This plan does not include my T:Slim insulin pump or (for right now) a Dexcom continuous glucose monitor. Those are commonly used for type 1 diabetics. I will be on two insulins and eventually an add-on tablet medication when I come back to Norway.

Life will change.

I WILL BE FREE OF MACHINES ATTACHED TO MY HIP!

WOOHOO!
