I have been feeling under the weather, and the weather has been yucky! What gives?
It was my 3 month appointment. I got good news and bad. Good news? My A1c was 5.8! Yay! That makes me happy, especially since I had a couple of really crappy BS days! Bad news. . . . kidneys are not doing well at all. I have appointment with a kidney specialist next month. Although we live in a valley of 100,000 we have no specialists for kidneys, kids, or diabetes. Around here we all go to Internal Medicine docs. No offence to my doc, but I was a little shocked when I excitingly told him about Dexter, ans he had no idea what a Dexcom was, or how it functioned. I told him I need help with fine tuning basal rates, he had no idea what I was talking about. He is sending me to a CDE next week. I am nervous because I am supposed to talk to him about going on a diet that works with all dietary restrictions. I have been told he is really hot, and he is a personal trainer. Not excited. If life wasn't complicated enough, now I get to park my fat a** in a room with a hottie talking about weight....nice.
My supposed "idiopathic edema" is getting worse by the day. Up 10lbs one day, and down 9lbs the next. It's so tiring, and I hate it! I have been so good about following salt and liquid restrictions! I am ready to say screw it, at least the liquid part, I feel like I am crawling through a hot dessert all day. I am so thirsty! Seriously, 6 cups a fluid a day? I can drink that much after 1 hour at the gym!
It's gotta better sometime! On the bright side it's fall and I sure love Halloween. My boyfriend helps keep me sane, he is so amazing!
