Peek of Sunshine: Good News (medical update)



Hello, everyone.

I thought I would do a personal check in.  

I am realizing that on here, this is my 500th published post.  

Who knew I’d have so much to say? (lol)

Anyway, last time I wrote anything medical, I was experiencing a bit of agitation with my current doctor.  He told me to come in before I ran out of one of my medicines because he was contemplating adjusting it.  I would have come in sooner, but the Sweetie told them to refill it before realizing he wasn’t supposed to.

It was all right because it did place me at about the six week mark.

He’s still baffled at the morning numbers being consistently higher.  He has been looking at my food logs, so he can see if anything I’m eating is causing it.  Although he is still fussing that I’m not eating a substantial amount of snacks daily to substitute when I can’t always have a full meal, my numbers are in range, even with my morning number being high. 

He should be lucky I am having time to eat at all.  It’s tough working two jobs, carving time to dedicate to exercising, and making myself eat, since I don’t constantly feel hunger or the need to eat.  Especially when I’m deep into my writing zone, I’m so in the thick of it, I won’t even realize it’s been hours. 

Now, drinking is another thing entirely.  I will grab something to drink quicker than I will something to eat.

He arranged for me to get some more lab work done, which should take place at the end of next month. 

I did get some good news.  He has decided to try me on a lower dosage of my medication to see how I function.  If I do well, he will keep me on this amount instead of the higher one I’ve been on since I was first diagnosed. 

We will see what happens next.

Peace.
