It has truly been a busy day in many respects and because I went to the doctor and case worker nurse today I have a special edition of the Body Rabyd. I now have a new companion that I have to test my blood sugar every day right after I get up. A finger poke a day isn’t so bad, it’s the two prescriptions and baby aspirin as part of my daily regimen that is a real problem. I hate pill more than stabbing myself; I suppose to some that is odd.
The doctor say that he is surprised because all my other numbers look good except my sugar so he feels I can actually beat the diabetic label if I follow nutrition plan, exercise and use my meds as a way to speed things up a little. I have to monitor my blood sugar every day. Not necessarily at the same time and I was even encouraged a little to check it after a meal I might have questions about its effects on me. He believes we caught this before I have suffered any other damage including kidney damage so if I can get my sugar under control I might be doing myself a tremendous favor..
In short, I now have a battle plan to beat this thing so I am going after it. I want to beat this and no longer be considered diabetic but that is going to take an incredible amount of discipline both from an exercise and nutrition point of view. Well, now it requires this one two punch so I need to focus more than ever and be very conscious of when and what I am eating. I must be doing something right because when I tested my sugar today it was half of what it had been after a twenty four hour fast the first time. Just need to keep at it and be a good patient (damn it).
Blessings and Cheers!!!
