I’ve been branded, tattooed, wrapped and thrown to thee wolves in Apr 2011 by the good Doctor who constantly leaves me perplexed and puzzled as I wonder what’s a pre- diabetic, now a Type 2? “Here! Take these pills – they’ll help!” as I scratch the back of my head wondering aloud… “No… got to be a better way!” Let’s just say my doc is now the one who is constantly surprised and puzzled now.
Its been an intriguing journey so far, full of surprises where small things influence giant things as I stumbled along learning, adapting and wonder what next wee surprise is around the corner…
Anyway, was a chubby one who decided I needed a new mirror especially since I couldn’t find the remote to change the picture, “Same crappy show scaring me to death!”
I huffed and puffed, and wheezed as I dragged exercise equipment out of the basement, up three flights of stairs while standing in a cloud of dust and cobwebs, a true miracle that I actually lived to tell that tale! I managed to lose 90 lbs, dropped from 4xl to L shirt, a 50 waist to a 38. I really hate buying clothes, I really do… and then I have this puzzle to figure out. I finally managed to get my A1C from bouncing 6.1 to 6.5 back down to 5.8 in the last recent test.
One has no idea as to much frustration I have gone through trying to figure out what an A1C is! I managed to get my Blood pressure to a rock solid 120/78 from a 150/100 which amazes my confused doc, and me!
Lets say I was a very naughty one who loved chocolate covered strawberry filled cream puffs or burnt almond rum flavoured cheese cakes while lounging around!
I listened (once I clean my ears out), and learned from here and there with very little assistance from the usual sources, pestered others here and there. Its been a frustrating challenge at times; at other times, I find it amusing especially after my last doc appointment as he pondered over my data, his data, muttering “You’re not diabetic!”
Life goes on… but that was soooo hiliarious!! I lost it!
A few know me from other forums as I keep looking around, finding tidbits of info, here and there, re-adjusting as I go along this journey. So I sound silly asking about this and that…no worries, I am used to it! :)
Cheers One and All!
