Does Fear Stop You?

Well, there have been no surprises or anything new this week.  The appointments that I have set-up are for the second week of November.  So, I have no new results to share with you all.  Right now, I am just trying to keep my glucose stable.

Help Me With My Stress

This was another very hectic week that I happily said farewell to.  We were very short-handed at the office this week.  Four employees were out sick, on vacation, or had unexpected family issues to tend to.  That means my workload increased by three extra tasks.

Move More to Feel Better

Sir Isaac Newton is quoted as saying, “an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an equal or stronger force.”  I want to stay in motion.  But sometimes I know I allow my thoughts prove to be stronger than my will.  This despite what I know to be true about myself from experience. Take exercise as an example.

Topic:  The Need to Take Meds ‘As Directed’

‘As directed’, may be just a little phrase, but it means a lot.  When your doctor prescribes medication, she does so for specific reasons.  She even takes into account your weight, and the stage of condition.  Recently, I learned the seriousness of following my doctor’s orders.

Coming To Terms With Diabetes

I was diagnosed nearly three years ago as a Type 2 Diabetic.  This was not a complete shock, but a shock nonetheless.  At first I was distraught, but became determined to beat this.  Especially after my doctor dispelled the notion that once diagnosed one would have to remain on medication until death do us part.  That’s how I felt, that diabetes was like a bad marriage that one could not escape from.  This is the first time in my life that I was happy to have been misinformed about something.

Farewell

I had another busy and emotional week…Tuesday dropped off the kitties at the vet’s office for their surgeries.   Before going in I had to love and kiss on them…of course I cried then cried again when I got back in the car.   It’s bad enough worrying about one kitty but four.  I knew it was going to be a long day but luckily I made plans to take my niece shopping for dorm stuff and groceries.    We had a great time started with lunch, went to Sam’s then Target.   Of course with all the stuff we got at Sam’s we had to make a run to the dorm.   Took us 4 trips…thank god for elevators because her room is on the 4th floor.    Brought back memories from my younger years….the staples of life…mac and cheese and the all time favorite ramen noodles.
