Well, our trip is coming up! I can't wait to see my granchildren and my daughter and son of course. I have had a rough time lately with pain in my back and legs and feet. Or should I say all over! Our lovely state says now you have to go to a pain specialist..So I went and I had to do a drug urine test.. Never done one in my life! Felt really strange..Now understand due to my car accident and leg problems, I have been on pain meds for quite some time..I don't like taking them but you have to do what you need to do to keep going! Walking is very hard for me and I struggle with it.. If I do to much, I really hurt and if I don't I will not lose weight! So I walk and then I hurt.. Such a cycle but I have learned to live with it..This doc is not about the handing out the meds, he wants to try and find out if we can do something different, which I am for, But , I draw the line at surgery..I have done 9 surgeries in 9 years.. I am so done with that! So, MRI's coming up..My general doc diagnozed me with fibromyalgia..Not too happy with this, and my endo doc says I am borderline diabetic.. So can we say , falling apart!
Well, I have decided today that I am 53 years old and going to live and endure whatever they throw at me.. I have been yoyoing on the weight but , back to losing ..I have started the low carb diet due the endo doc, she says it will help with the blood sugar thing..It is working as the scale is going back down..
I am really looking forward to Alaska , not the plane ride 8 to 9 hours, but those cute faces will be at the end of it..My son in law has a big boat and we are going to go fishing and sight seeing..I can't wait to see my 5 and 7 year old catch a fish.. Yes they both fish..My DH is also excited about the fishing..Just hope any bears are far away..I would like to see one, but not too close..Yikes! Well back to sewing, I have been making me a new wardrobe, due to weight loss nothing fits, I hope to be finished by the end of June,, Wish me luck..
