Diabetes is hard. And there’s no ignoring it…at least as far as I’m concerned. Regardless of what I’ve been doing for the quarter, I feel compelled to keep my appointments 4xyear. I was hopeful this morning when I went in. Well, until I stepped on the scale before I left the house. And then until I realized I would be a little late due to parking.
“Hhhmm, your blood pressure is up,” from my favoritest-ever office person. “Are you in pain?”
Well, yes I was in a little pain. However, the last time I had my blood pressure checked I was in a lot more and today was much higher.
Great foreshadowing to the rest of the appointment.
The last time I had my appointment my levels had been crazy high. This time, I really felt like they hadn’t. I was thinking maybe I’d even hit at 7. No. 7.8.
My doctor doesn’t give me a hard time. She talks about how it’s harder to eat right and exercise in the winter, yada, yada, yada.
I wanted to just crawl into a hole. Instead I went into work for hours and hours of meetings. And was glad i had insurance that allowed that $300 visit to just cost me $30.
