Continuing the tradition that pretty much everything that is good and healthy for everyone else is totally bad and unhealthy for me, I cancelled my gym membership this afternoon. I haven't been able to work out for weeks so I've been paying for pretty much nothing (I did get some help with stretching from a trainer a few times last month). The guy who signed me up last summer happened to see me and came over and said if I had something from one of my doctors he would put me on medical hold for next month so I wouldn't get charged (it is a 30 day cancel, so I would've gotten charged for 1 more month). I had my blood test results from 2 weeks ago showing my absurdly low blood sugar, and he said he thought he could make it work.
Even though I got a massage yesterday that felt great and toned down my GP, my upper back and shoulders are killing me! My masseuse said my trapezius muscles are seriously tight - and that's what's hurting so bad (just to be clear, I knew they were tight and painful, but she said they are even worse than normal).
Plus, now that the GP is toned back down, my hypoglycemia is coming back. This morning I had very mild crashes, but they've been getting a little worse all day. Hopefully by Saturday I will be back to full on blackout crashes so I can get the most out of the glucose tolerance test.
I'm also a little worried about what's happening while I'm asleep. Last night my cat woke me up several times. Usually when he wakes me up he wants food, but I filled his dish before bed, and if he wants food he keeps trying to wake me up until I either really yell at him or lock him out of the room. Last night (and a few other times in the past few weeks) he dramatically woke me up then once I rolled over and looked at the clock, he left me alone. Some animals can sense different medical conditions in their owners like seizures or high blood sugar - I wonder if my cat is sensing a hypoglycemic crash while I'm asleep and waking me up. Considering he didn't wake me up the several nights before while I was having a GP flare and thus my crashes were really dulled... I just don't know.
Still debating on if I want my mother to come up to take my to the appointment on Saturday (or even a few days before).
