I’m starting to dislike my monthly doctor visits. As I write this, I’m thinking it is just as bad as the mother nature monthly visits! (Sorry Guys!)
I had all kinds of good news today! Granted a good portion of it is self-inflicted, however, the other part is my body rebelling. I’ve been letting what he said sink in for a couple of hours and now I just have to get it off my chest. So, excuse me for ranting.
Like I said, I am to blame for most of my health problems. I’m overweight and I don’t watch my diet, especially since I have diabetes. Plus the fact that I am not active! My first bit of good news was that my blood sugar is still out of wack – HAH, go figure, I’m not watching my diet very well. The next piece of good news is that my overall blood sugar test (A1C test) was just above a 7. Granted a 7 isn’t the worst it could be however, it isn’t the best either. He’d like to see it around 5-6. The next great news was that my kidneys have more protein in them than they used to, which means my diabetes is starting to affect them. If I don’t get my sugars under control and lose the weight, they will start getting damaged and unfortunately, there is no reversing the damage. The last wonderful news is that I am having an ultra-sound on my calf this Saturday. There’s a possibility that I have clots forming in my leg. *sigh*
Will this be enough to kick my butt in gear … well, maybe. I just have to go the the 5 stages first. I think I’m still stuck in denial, heading towards the mad!
Well, thanks for letting me vent. I’m going to sulk in the corner now. Hope ya’ll have a good night.
