Well it's currently Day 13 of me being diagnoses with diabetes. So how am I doing? Well, it's officially official. My bloodwork came back with confirmation of being diabetic. Which beats having something weird and esoteric in my pancreas. Been doing the blood testing twice a day per my doctor. Once when I get up, once after a meal (usually dinner or lunch). Don't like the jab, but I'm not needle phobic at all, so it's more of a 'sigh' *bleed* *move on*. Blood sugar is going down, which of course is the way we want things to be going. Yay medication and diet.
Speaking of diet, I've gone from an average of 3000 calories a day, to under
2000. How, setting limited portions, snacking on cucumbers and tomatoes a
lot, and trying to be mindful of how I'm doing. The snacking urge is hard
to ignore, I hate being hungry. But my stomach is shrinking a bit, and
I've found stuff that works well for me. So I'm doing ok. Trying very hard
to not set myself up for a fall. If I go over calories/sugars, then oh
well. Try better tomorrow. I'm going to go over tonight by a bit. (I
treated myself to NYC pizza, was good and only ate two slices. That was
hard). But I don't have to be perfect. Just have to improve.
Otherwise, I'm kind of kerfrazzled, the vision stuff is scary, but I think
my eyes have settled down to a point where I think that unless they find
something else wrong, And if they do, I'll deal. Though if I stop being
able to read, there will be problems. Work is stressing me, lots of
meetings, lots of questions I just don't know. Company buyouts are
stressful as heck. I ended up taking today as PTO to just decompress.
Tomorrow and Sunday are more decompression time, need to do some more
chores around the house, read, and really, REALLY try to catch up on sleep.
Speaking of reading and sleeping, I think that's what I'm going to do.
