THIS IS A RARE VENTING BLOG....APOLOGIES...HAD TO GET IT OUT!!!!
I was listening to a Jillian Michaels Podcast today while making dinner and I feel more normal when I hear her voice, her struggles, her frustrations...etc.
PERSON WORTHY OF SLEDGEHAMMER-ING:
This person is 40 years old
a little overweight
sits on computer and sleeps and has a sales job
falls asleep in the car after he puts it in park in the driveway!
can barely walk because his body is deteriorating and his nerves are damaged....his feet hurt him badly...
from type 2 diabetes and the fact that he doesn't test his blood sugars EVER
Has high blood pressure
Has high cholesterol
Has bed bowel & urine accidents
His body is eating it's own muscle because he does ZERO activity
Had heart failure a year ago
has a corner of our kitchen dedicated to his medication...and yet can actually forget to take it....
if you check his car you will find empty bags and wrappers of candy and snack items
Will either NOT eat, or will eat a whole loaf of bread and 1/2 a tub of margarine in a sitting and down 4 liters of juice.
will complain about every freaking thing I make...even though everyone else raves about it...made healthy butter chicken tonight...and he complained because he couldn't taste the butter...give me a freaking break.
I will have to tell him to eat his vegetables
I will ask him to go on a walk...or take the dog around the block. (every 6 months or so, he's forced to walk and LOVES how he feels afterwards...forehead slap!DUH!)
He drinks raspberry syrup in coke by the pints
Gets moody, angry and tired due to do NOTHING, medication and laziness
Are you getting the picture....
I love this man...he is the reason I moved to this country...I have to honestly say...I hope he ends back in the hospital because at least he's their problem then and he's monitored and I can take my frustrations out on....well...nothing :) Id have none! LOL
My Tupperware Lady once said something...
"you being with someone so unhealthy, is like my husband bringing home rubbermaid(usa)/Sistema (NZ)"
At least if he was rich I could hope for a big inheritance one day in the near future, but all I'll be left with is NOTHING and no way to get off this island! I don't expect him to be an athlete, but I expect him to CARE and monitor himself and just not auto-inject his insulin without taking a reading...and taking ALL of his insulin...not just the slow acting ...blah blah blah....
So...do not feel you have to respond...I just needed a place to vent that he wouldn't see...why..because he doesn't use his SP account either! Big surprise!
