OK. The glucophage is making me feel terrible. Spaced out. Muscle weakness. Headache. Stomach problems. Tired. Trouble concentrating. Nausea. Chest tightness. I'm not me.
Today I felt terrible but I kept my commitment to complete the 5K. I had planned to run a mile of it but with all of the issues I'm having at the moment I decided to just walk.
I hate complaining but it was not fun. I started feeling extremely weak and lightheaded then sweating profusely around 1.5 miles. Fortunately I was able to finish and make it back home before my stomach went bad on me again.
Even then I was able to walk faster than I ran my first 5K. How about that?! :)
As far as the medicine goes, I'm not going to take it anymore. I'm going to try to control this insulin resistance with diet and exercise. Don't worry. I called and left a message with my doctor. I just can't go on feeling like this especially when I was feeling so good before. The thyroid meds have definitely helped though.
Yeah, I'm not feeling like myself but I'm confident that:
- I'll be running again
- I'll lose this weight
- I'll have energy
- I'll hike the Grand Canyon
PS My mom said it looked like I had lost a little weight. Then I showed her my new license and she said that it didn't even look like me. LOL
