I’m pissed. I really wanted there to be no reason for me to have this site. I wanted to give it up. I decided a few days ago that I wasn’t going to post then, I went to the doctor. I went because I’ve been having some stomach pain, gas, bloating, stuff that you don’t really want to write to the world about. Yesterday, while I was there, my doctor decided that it was time to do a round of tests to see how I was doing. It had been about six months since my last appointment, so I was due. I got the results back today, my A1C was 7.4. I honestly can’t remember what it was the first time I got tested and they said I had diabetes, maybe 7.4? This is definitely the highest it’s been six months, if not ever.
Here is the deal, it makes sense. I’ve been stressed for the last three months, I haven’t been taking my blood sugar readings every day. The doctor’s office scale said that I gained 14 pounds. I cannot tell you how much I hate that damn scale! If you look at this picture you’ll see that in the last 90 days I’ve only taken 108 readings, I should have taken 180.
Ultimately, what I’m most pissed about is that this is something that is going to affect the rest of my life. I cannot let my guard down even for a brief moment. Therefore, I do have a need for this blog. I’m not sure how this will materialize, I may post my food every day, but that seems boring. Maybe I’ll do a weekly blog post? Let’s see what happens, but I do know that I’m not going to let diabetes get the best of me. I’m going to garner the strength to get through this as best I can. But for tonight, all I can say is F&CK DIABETES!
