A Week of Agony

Monday, February 01, 2010

I am so glad last week is now over! If it wasn't one thing, it was another. I started off the week sick as a dog. I had a cough that would not go away...found out it was bronchitis...after it was clearing up. I still have this cough and am now losing my voice. Last week was also finals week at school. Because of me not feeling so well, I did not even start my finals until Wednesday night. Then Friday, I received another blow. I was diagnosed with diabetes. Actually not that is not quite true...yet. My blood sugar levels are really high right now, but not enough to warrant treatment at this time. However, after telling the doctor I am trying to conceive one more child, he preceeded to inform me that if I do get pregnant that I WILL be diabetic, without question. I have to be retested in 3 months to see how my levels are. If they are still high at that time, they will begin to treat it. Which listening to the doctor explained so much. The sugar was actually mimicking symptoms of my underactive thyroid. I am constantly thirsty (hence why I haven't had any problems drinking my water), constantly tired (especially after eating), always freezing, and having a hard time losing weight. It also explains why my vision has been changing. So fast forward to Sunday. Last day finals can be turned in. Psychology final: 660 words written of a minimum 1400 word count requirement. Education final: 164 words written of a minimum 1750 word count requirement. I finished my Psych final around 11 pm. I turned in my Education final with 1232 words at 1:55 a.m. So I had to turn in my final, unfinished. I am hoping I scored high enough to pass these classes. I am just 6 classes away from getting my Associate's degree in Psychology. I do not want to have to redo these classes again...once was more than enough. This morning has been another horrible start to my week. My fiance decided to stay up all night long playing PS3, with the excuse of staying up so that when Gage woke up around 5 a.m. he would be awake and could deal with him since I was up late working on finals. Some help. He brought him down. I had to remind him to change his diaper; I had to feed him; I had to stay awake and take care of him, because Matt decided to pass out soon after bringing Gage downstairs. So the only reason he stayed up all night and used Gage as the excuse was so I wouldn't say anything about him playing all night. Well, I hope he enjoyed his all nighter, because his days of ignoring us for his online PS3 buddies are over! I am sick and tired of this crap!! So enter my world if you dare!

    The bright side is that it can only get better, right?? I'm on a quest now to lose weight so I won't need to go on any medication and I won't have to hear the doctors say "Taryn, you are officially diabetic now." Still waiting on my grades. It's killing me not knowing if I passed the classes or not. This term, I am going to make sure I turn in all my assignments (sick or not) to make sure this does not happen again. Thanks for your support. As always, you know just what to say. emoticon

    Oof sorry to hear that your week was bad. Hopefully things work out where you wont have to take treatment, and you wont have to worry about diabetes.
    I hope you passed your finals too! Its hard getting that much work done when you are stressed.

    Good luck!
