ARLINGTON – The Six Or Seven Of You Who Still Read This Blog are probably wondering what I meant by this. And I’d promised you that I’d tell you exactly what the medical condition was once I got it under control.
Well, that hasn’t happened yet, but I’m gonna tell you anyway.
Since 1995, I’ve been a Type II diabetic – my cell structure doesn’t do a good enough job of absorbing the insulin my pancreas produces; thus, my blood sugar level is somewhat higher than it ought to be.
Through the magic of pills and
exercise…well, pills (grin), I’ve managed to keep my blood sugar under control. For a brief time in the early part of the decade, the Atkins diet had even allowed me to lose enough weight that I’d gone off the medication altogether.
Sweet. (Pardon the pun.)
However, the last couple of years the diabetes had caught up with me to the point where I had to once again employ prescriptions in order to outpace it.
Now, this turdbucket of a disease has caught up with the prescriptions. Right now, my blood sugar level is hovering in the 160s and 170s. Not good.
Am I gonna have to start an insulin regiment not too long hence? I dunno, but it’s not something to which I’m looking forward, should that be the case.
Will keep you updated. As always, watch this space, and thanks for stopping by.
