Been Awhile

Thursday, June 24, 2010

So it has been almost 3 months since i posted a blog on here. Well during this time a lot have happened. I moved back in with my parents, been stressing out with school and work. To sum it up I have been dealing with alot of things. I manged to loose 4 pounds, even though my eating has not been the best and i have not been exercising like I should. The bad is that for the last 2 weeks or so I have this sore on my left leg, i think it maybe a leg ulcer and it hurts weather I am standing sitting or walking. I had one earlier this year but by the time i went to the doctor it had heeled but the doctor still tested my blood for diabetes and other test and everything came back normal. I have no medical insurance so I have to go to the clinic so the nearest appointment i could get is for next week. I hope they can tell me what's wrong and what I can do to keep from getting these sores in the future.

    yikes - I'd definitely keep an eye on these ulcers. My dad is an insulin dependent diabetic and he has an ulcer on his foot. He gets these pretty regularly. He just had his most recent wound debreaded (dead flesh removed from the wound) the other day. And a few days before that he had an angiogram to clear up a blockage in his lower leg - he had almost 100% blockage and his wound couldn't heal properly - due to the lack of circulation. The doctors were fearful gangreen would set in and they'd have to consider amputation.

    So please keep an eye on these things.

    I hope you feel better soon! It must be painfully sore. Try to take it easy - your body will have more energy to heal that way.
