I can't believe I will (hopefully - if all goes well) be done my degree in under a week!!! The official notice about my thesis defence went out to the university e-mail list. Now all I have to do is finish up my presentation and thinking about answers to questions I think I might get asked.
The last few days I have been sleeping ... LOTS of sleeping. And I did a bit of reading, and watched some TV. A lot of times I feel like I don't know what to do with myself. It's almost like I forget what free time is.
My blood sugars over the past few weeks have been crazy. Mostly high over the past week. And my infusion sets (the stainless steel ones) are itchy and hive-y. I am in denial! I do not want to start having issues with these sets too! I see my endo in September - I had thought it was August but I called to confirm the date and it's Sept. So we'll see then what my A1c and cholesterol are and, if it's still an issue, I might talk to him about these sets getting itchy now.
Another part of it might be that I'm finding it VERY hard to eat anything even resembling low carb. Over the week I was away on my second trip I tried eating eggs, and that did not work out at all. I'm going to try eating nuts next, but I'm waiting until my throat recovers from the eggs. *sigh*
I read about a study the other week that they discovered something to do with the root cause of EoE and hoped to develop some sort of pharmaceutical treatment for it. That would be so incredibly awesome! I'd still have allergies but this disease is more annoying than just plain allergies (at least those can be accurately tested for rather than just using trial and error) I'm still having issues swallowing though that might be because I ate eggs for two weeks ... in fact I'm hoping it is. Incidentally, I also read that they've developed a pill (I think) for people with celiac disease.
I am trying to get inspired to write a blog post for my BD&BD blog but I am not getting inspired by any of the drafts I have. If anyone has any suggestions let me know! Hopefully the more I think about posting something eventually inspiration will come, that's usually what happens.
