So I had my doctor appointment today and I am now officially Diabetic. Which sucks, BUT it is still really early days and she said if I ate well and got more exercise I would be alright. I need more fruit and protein and less carbs and sugar. Tomorrow I am going to see a dietician. Mom and I are gonna do weightlifting tomorrow too. I don’t need to test my blood glucose with a meter yet, I do have to come to the lab and do blood tests every three months though, and every other test is a fasting blood test. BLOOD! Bleh.
I don’t know if I am surprised or not. I think I thought I had more time before this was gonna happen. Like, five more years or so. I always suspected it was gonna happen to me though, because of medication I am on and also being Native.
I hope it doesn’t blind me or kill me though. I really don’t want to get all sickly.
But I was all sleepy this morning and mom said that was a symptom of diabetes. So that is disappointing. I’ve been REALLY tired these days.
I’m going to Kingston the day after tomorrow! Going to be there for a couple of screenings of my films and talk on a panel. Then visiting Toronto for three days. It should be alright. I’m looking forward to seeing my friend Louis! LOUIS!
I have a lot to learn about diabetes. I have a diabetic mom and a diabetic auntie though, so I’ve overheard a lot of blab about diabetic things. It’s not totally new to me anyway.
Well, I was really just writing this post to warm up and blab about my day before I go on to start writing my transmissions webisodes. I’d better go do that now!
