June 5 - Sick
Thursday, June 05, 2014
Was sick as a dog last night - thought I'd actually have to go to the ER it was so bad. This diabetes is really doing a number on me, even though I am keeping (for the most part) my carbs in line. In my case, when my glucose is out of whack, I get nauseous rather than the shakes.
Hated to call in today and miss out on an eight-hour shift, especially since work has made a big deal about my calling in, even though I've only called in three times this year. I WOULD have seen the doctor Tuesday if work hadn't messed it up. HR personally entered the request for the day off then they went and scheduled me to work. So now I won't be able to go in before Tuesday.
I am hoping this new doctor will adjust the meds. I think the last doctor put me on high-blood pressure unnecessarily just because my readings were up a bit. At my original doctor, they always took a second reading to be sure it just wasn't "white coat syndrome".
I'm really tired of feeling yucky 90% of the time. I'm used to being able to do whatever I want without all these restrictions. I haven't even been able to go to the rec center regularly because of the foot and stomach pain that seem to always be present.
