And The Journey Begins.

No surprise to me that two weeks ago my Dr. told me I had type 2 diabetes. I had been denying it for probably longer than I should have. Ignorance is bliss, and in my case it wonderful. Now that time is over. When I went in the first time I was happy, looking forward to getting it confirmed and on the road to getting rid of it. I gladly went down to the blood suckers and gave them I don't even remember how many vials of my blood. Then waited until the next day to hear what I already knew was coming. Type 2. The whole family joined the gym and that week I went three times. I was feeling pretty good about myself until Monday. I remembered the lady that called to tell me about my results. She told me that my Dr. wanted to see me in two weeks. I was surprised about that. He had told me a month. On Monday I got a call confirming my appointment for today at 9:45AM  I didn't even remember making that appointment. So now I am worried. What is he going to tell me? He did order more blood tests and I went in last Wed. for those. Will he tell me that I have to be on the insulin pen? I don't like shots and I would rather avoid them if possible. I am really freaking out. What damage have I done to myself while in my ignorance phase? For the next hour and a half I will be getting ready and going to the appointment. So maybe my freak out will stay to a low grade one. Wish me luck. 

My appointment went well. He was just a little worried about my white blood cells and being anemic. I am just to continue taking the iron pills. He wants to see me in 6 to 7 months. My goal is to be down 20 or more pounds, and have walked, ran a 5K by then!!

Road Rage

I has it, road rage. It's not been diagnosed but everyone that has been in the car with me for any length of time knows I have a mild to moderate case of it! My pastor has said that everyone is a pharisee about something. That thing for me is the rules of the road. Don't get me wrong I do speed, 5 over. I just get out of the way if someone else wants to go faster. What drives me crazy is I will be in the right lane, someone is tailgating me. They go into the left lane to pass me then come back into the right lane, to then turn right IN FRONT OF ME!! Grrrr. Other issues I have are people not getting all the way into the turn lane. The people that smoke, are on the phone and driving. How in the world do they think that doing all of that at one time is safe?? I thought that the road rage would go away now that I have a KIA Sportage, but no. I still get ticked when people do not use their turn signals. I know that I will have more issues once I get to know the new car, but for now this is all I have!! Thanks and use your turn signals!!
