Diabetes and Fibromyalgia

I went to the doctor on Thursday just to be told I have to undergo another bloodbath. Monday, if the lab is open, I have to go and have a shit ton of blood work done. GTT, insulin level, Sed rate, ANA, Rheumatoid factor, and a Hepatitis panel.

They're confirming the diabetes and trying to rule out everything before they give me a Fibromyalgia diagnosis. My liver enzymes were three times the normal rate so they're also checking for some sort of hepatitis just in case. She wants to figure out my levels are so bad.

I go back to the doctor on Wednesday. It's bittersweet actually. It's nice to know that I can finally get healthy, but it's a shock to me that I have so much wrong. It's scary because I have no health care, no real way to get health care. I'm also worried that because I'm breastfeeding, I can't take Lyrica. It's the only drug that I know of that is used to treat Fibro and I can't take it.

If I do get the diagnosis, do I wean C so that I can be healthy or do I continue to breastfeed and deal with the pain I'm in? /gaah It's so hard to know what is right. It's down right stressful and draining.

more exercise...

Thursday I did 15 mins on the treadmill and tonight I helped J clean up after the basketball game. My body has been hurting like crazy and I hope that over time the exercise is going to help ease the pain.

C popped another tooth through(1-17-09). That makes 5 teeth. /thud

15 minutes on treadmill


Last Saturday I helped hubby clean up after a basketball game so I pushed a dust mop and got in my walking that way.

Monday I did 15 minutes on the treadmill. Today I did 15 minutes on the treadmill.

The more I do the easier it gets. I'm hoping to be able to up the pace just a little bit soon!

my childhood home is burning as i type

i'm some what in shock but my mom called and told me that the house i grew up in is on fire and is burning to the ground.. RIGHT NOW.

I spent 21 years in that home, my dad owned it before my mom and dad got married, and my grandfather owned it before that. 3 generations of my family in that house.. and it's on it's way to being gone, Right Now.

I'll post pictures of it later tonight, or tomorrow.

Dr. Appt

I lived and it wasn't to horribly painful. I go back next Thursday to check on my blood work and to formulate a plan on what to do next. I lost 6 lbs since Dec. 10th. I'm down to 386. My blood pressure was 112/76. That's the lowest I think it's ever been.

All in all, a great start to a healthier 2009.

Type 2 Diabetes

I got tomorrow morning to a doctor to talk about me having type 2 diabetes. I've been checking my sugar after meals and fasting and they are not good at all. I had gestational diabetes and had to be put on injectable insulin. It was horrible because even with the insulin my body didn't tolerate most foods. Hopefully with some diet modification and exercise I won't have to go back on shots.


15 mins on the treadmill 126 cal. lost
