I Don't Have GD, But...

...I do have Impaired Glucose Tolerance. I'm quite not diabetic, but in it's beginning stages. I was poked every hour on the hour. The nurses were so mean. They straight jabbed the needles in my arms and left me bruised. This is my right arm right now. My left arm isn't too bad. The bruising has gotten better, but it still kind of hurts.
I do need to attend my class still this Friday and they will be providing me with a glucose monitor. They will show me how to check my sugar levels and they will also show me how to make healthier choices in my eating habits. Argh! The one thing I'm glad is that I do not have to take insulin to control it.

Maybe this will help me in the long run.

That's good news that you don't have GD! I'm sorry it wasn't such a good experience though. :(
