I've been out for a while, and I wanted to let some of you who were concerned know what's been going on with me. This is sort of a journey that some of you have followed a while. I finally have a doctor that has listened to me about being tired all of the time. And sick half of the time. Along with the symptoms I've complained about on here, I've also been having numbness and tingling in my arm and leg (but not the diabetic type). I've been having issues pronouncing words correctly and using the wrong word for what I want to say. Due to my symptoms, I'll be being tested via MRI for MS on Friday. I've also already been tested for Lupus and RA (both came back negative). If I'm also negative for MS, I'll be seeing a Rheumatolgist for further testing of disorders such as fibro.
I've also learned that my current diabetes medication is not effective for me anymore and I'll be making an appointment with a specialist to see about changing my medication up and possibly adding insulin to my day. Most days my fasting is over 250, and 2 hours after eating, even with a breakfast of whole wheat toast, 2 eggs and 2 bacon strips, it jumps up to over 350...ON medication.
As such, I haven't been feeling well, and I haven't even been using my computer much, mostly my phone to check facebook and twitter. And so I haven't been logging in to spark people. That is where I have been. I'm ok, just not sure about what the future holds at the moment.
