    We were just talking about this at book club last night – that merry-go-round of doctor visits trying to find someone who can explain why you don’t feel well. How much the medical community says things are just in your head. SO frustrating! And such a relief when you finally have a possible solution. Good for you to keep asking the questions and not settling for being dismissed. I hope the metformin continues to help you feel better!

      It’s frustrating, isn’t? Especially when you don’t feel heard. I don’t know if I will see any significant weight loss but I do feel a lot better.

    I take Berberine for insulin resistance. It’s an herb that seems to act like Metformin. I took it consistantly for about a month right before COVID, but then stopped because I thought it wasn’t working. Looking back on it, I realized that it was helping and that I should probably give it another try.

    I’m glad that you found a doctor that figured out what was going on. Having a baby really changes our body, inside and out!

      Interesting! I have not heard of that herb. I will have to look it up. Yes, having a baby does change things and I never knew how much!

    Congratulations on advocating for yourself so persistently. I’m sorry it took so long – and how wonderful you finally got a doctor who listened and found a way to help.
