In the attempts to keep myself busy enough to not miss my boys so bad, I’ve stretched myself, on my own, pretty thin. Now, if only stretching this way worked to thin myself out for real, that would be magnificent! Rather, it does not. *Sad Face*
Getting right down to it … I have Type 2 Diabetes. Of course, I am not at all a text book case. Nothing about me can ever be text book. Rather, levels are all over the place. They can be normal for a few hours then sky rocket. Labs actually shown that I was sitting on the boarder and the doc wasn’t going to do anything, but The Nephew, who has Type 1 Diabetes got a meter for me and I recorded my numbers for her as he suggested. If not for his suggestion and those off the wall readings, I’d still be in the same place … feeling like crap, scratching my head, and wondering what in the world is wrong. Diet, exercise and a complete life change is on tap for the rest of my life. The doc wants to re-do the A1C labs as they didn’t do them the last time she ordered them. She also ran a whole slew of other tests as well to go along with the whole slew she’s already ran. Have I said how much I like this one? Well, I like her. She’s diligent … thorough.
Also, to add to my already piled on plate of yucky stuff … I have Fatty Liver. Yep, big fat o’liver. Which was found just as a side note to something else I was complaining about. Again, lifestyle changes. Got a rather long, love filled, yet harsh lecture from Lucas about how I won’t get to see him grow up to be a man if I don’t change my ways. He’s right too! So, if ever there was a wake up call, Lucas rung my bell.
The Bug (Nephew) is a chef, so he’s going to be doing most of the cooking around here as the doc really sent home the fact that the fried comfort food as got to go. If it’s not boiled, broiled, or baked … it doesn’t get eaten by me. Hey! Cake is baked! And I like cake!
Update on Rexulti and Restlessness:
I had to start taking Rexulti in the morning, as it simply aggravated my restless legs way too much to take it before bed. It’s been a night and day difference. Although about 8:30 p.m. I begin to feel restless and need to start taking the Mirapex before then. Because once that feeling sets in, it’s hard to get it to stop.
I haven’t slept more than 3 to 4 hours in a 24 hour period in over a year and a half until last night. I went to bed around 9 pm and slept till 5 am only waking at midnight but falling right back to sleep. I have Trazodone to thank for that nights sleep. Getting me back on a normal (if anything I do can have that word associated with it) sleep cycle.
Still so much left to do … wowsiers! Till next time!
