Damn I hate this Metformin. I started back on the 3 times daily dose last Friday and it's been a fight to stay functional around here. I've gotten so I do not want to even eat because I KNOW I'll have to take one of those damnedable pills just afterwards. I think you were right the other night iggy, it's possible the sugar keeps crashing out. Just enough to tire me out, but not enough to do anything worse yet. So do I wanna be tired because I havent eaten OR do I want to be tired because I had to take my medicine? Not that I have a choice...Im supposed to be taking the stuff for something OTHER than my blood sugar anyhow. The first pill makes me drowsy...kinda like I hadnt eaten in hours OR hadnt gotten enough sleep (not that I normally get much sleep but I do get enough to function on). By the second pill, Im ready to crawl into bed for the night. Hubby came home last night and took one look at me..."Honey, what's wrong?". Ok this tells me I dont look right either...gee thanks. By the 3rd pill....well I gotta apologize to Chicago...sorry hun, I did mean to come back into MSN.... At 1015pm I was in bed and by 1030pm I was snoring. Does this mean I got a good night's sleep? Hardly as I was awake half the night for one thing or another. It took me 2 hours to get fully awake today....I ate my first meal about 2 hours or so ago but didnt bother with the pill yet because I really need to get things caught up first. I *think* I got all the blogs read and pretty much commented on. I do have another 1-2 entries planned but I suspect once I take my first dose, I'll be out of it again so this will have to suffice. I've written the obgyn's office again and Im hopin to get a note in the next day or so (she's out of the office until Thursday) so I plan on staying the course until then. *sigh*
I have, however, managed to get my rides in daily...tired or not.

Both trips were done shortly after takin my meds and boy I was whipped afterwards. I havent taken my pill yet so Im hoping for a slightly better ride. Id better go grab a snack before I hop on the bike.
