quick catch up. for last 3+ months Shaak has remained in the 400's, I have not updated her SS since the beginning of August because nothing ever changes. Every shot I gave her appeared to seep back out of her body, I know once or twice in a while I might make a fur shot but definitely not every time. While I don't know the cause I do know it meant every shot I gave her was not getting in, or else some how seeping back out. Part of this might be because she has lost so much weight, she is down to 5.5 lbs. I am sure she has to be hyperthyroid but I could not afford to get her tested again. I almost had the vet convinced to give her the medication for overactive thyroid anyway. She decided we should go on up to 4.5 Units of insulin and see where that got us. Well, first two shots after this vet visit again did not go in. So I called the vet and she told me to inject and while keeping plunger in to squeeze her skin shut around needle. Now while I must say this really ticked Shaak off and she tried to bite me, however, it worked and the insulin went in. She managed to drop all the way to 84 this afternoon and her PMPS was only 199. So since it has been so long since she got that low I chickened out and only gave her 1.5 u for her evening shot because there was no way I could stay up all night tonight to keep checking her BG tonight as my health just won't allow it. as a result her +3 was 284. Not even sure the insulin went in again this time, such a small amount made it hard to tell. I am just curious being as it has been so long since she has been in lower numbers any thoughts on what I should have given her for her PM shot. Please note like I said I have not posted her numbers in three months because all they ever were was the 400's and the occasional 300. I knew there was a problem but couldn't afford another vet visit so I just muddled through. I would have asked a friend to come over and see what might have been going wrong with my technique but my stress anxiety level is so high anymore my home smells of cat urine because Shaak long ago quit peeing in the litter box and I gave up on trying to clean it since every puddle was about half a cup of liquid. also my bedroom is such a disaster, we have boxes and clothes everywhere because we were in process of selling off tv and some other things and I have lost dresser and entertainment unit to store clothes and things. I just couldn't face letting someone see the condition of my home. My anxiety and depression has been such I have ignored most all social media due to not being able to face talking to people. I know you are my friends and finally I managed to squeak enough money together for a vet visit so I felt I could face you and get your opinion. Please be gently with your replies as I am emotionally fragile these days, much more so than ever before.
