Dec 11, 2016 · My best mental health treatment is hiking in Mental Health

Walking is good for the soul and too suffer from Chronic depression and am a disabled Vet because of it.  I walk at the Port of Baltimore as I work there as a state employee.  The scenery is quite different as I see ships, tower cranes, heavy equipment of
all kinds, plus seagulls, sea birds, and the water; it can be intoxicating.  As I am Catholic; I pray my rosary while I walk; it becomes (for me) a mantra and I find a peace in it.
  Keep going and enjoy . . .

Just be patient with yourself as it is not easy . . . it’s one day at a time and sometimes – it’s one hour at a time. Take care

Before my cancer/radiation my treatment regimen was max Metformin and Jenuvia once a day. My numbers was good in the 110 to 130 range. Now in addition to Metformin/Jenuvia – I am on 18 units of insulin at mealtime. My numbers are in the mid 100’s, and I feel pretty good.

Question: I had 17 radiation treatments for stage 1 Stomach cancer; can radiation affect my pancreas?
Before the radiation my numbers were great averaging about 113 – after the radiation my numbers have greatly increased and are all over the place, as a result I’ve been placed on insulin. I am the same guy – and really the only thing that has changed is I had radiation. Am I to blame or could it be the radiation? I just don’t know.
