I know I've been quiet for a bit. Again. Well, life keeps me playing balancing acts and I don't what to bum you all out when I'm not feeling so perky. And I don't want you all to think I'm feeling sorry for my self, even though I probably am, when things aren't going so great.
My latest bump in the road came as news from my doctor. I am diabetic, tyoe 2. And so far no medicine but I am testing my blood twice a day. And I am watching what I eat, most of the time. And I do keep a food journal, most of the time. But I do faithfully record my blood glucose levels every time. I've lost weight and I'm eating healthy food most of the time. i exercise a bit more. So far so good.
But...I got this book on the things you should know in your first year of diabetes. It starts out fine but then it goes quite gloomy, talking about how you can never eat any of your beloved junk food, like cake and ice cream ever, ever again. And how I should be quite depressed on learning that I'm diabetic. Excuse me? Maybe I'm farther out there than I thought but being diabetic hasn't really thrown me yet. I'll grant I'm in the early stages and not having huge drops due to meds. Or maybe my anti-depressant is much more effective than I thought. But it just is, so getting all gloomy about it isn't going to help (I so wish that I could deal with more things tha way).
And I am not going to say I can't eat anything ever again. My contrary nature will just make me crave it that mcuh more. The fobidden fruit and all that.
Anyhow, enough of that. I just wanted to let you know what was up with me.
Now I'm off back to trying to pull together class proposals. Sigh, I'm just not as focused as I used to be. It is hard to concentrate and bring it all together....but I will.
Take care. I'll be back soon.
