Well it looks like the doc found the right medicine for me. Glipizide (Glucotrol) seems to be fine on my stomach. Although it was only one day, it was a huge day. It was nice not to be running to the bathroom due to the side effects of the other drug.
Food intake was good for the day. Slice of whole wheat toast with peanut butter for breakfast, salad and some crackers for lunch, and Chicken Parmesan for dinner. The chicken recipe was found on DLife.com and was wonderful. Simple, and in fact is my lunch for the day today.
While driving to another office yesterday to do some work, I had a mini breakdown. I had a round of “woo is me.” I felt like I caught this, like catching a cold. I know being over weight and eating habits could have triggered this. I felt like I have let family and friends down. Kind of depressing afternoon.
Getting out after dinner last night for a stroll did help though. Just three laps around the block, but I felt good inside and out afterwards.
