Skipped Pre-diabetes all together...
Friday, March 10, 2017
I always figured I would have time to make changes. I figured that I would go in for my physical, and I would find out my blood sugar was slightly elevated, and I would be told to make diet and exercise changes and then be sent home. I never imagined that a conversation with my mom would change my life so dramatically. Am I being over-dramatic? Possibly. I mean, I just found out that my blood sugar is 433. 433!!! Holy crap woman! What on earth are you doing to yourself??? Seriously now. Ok, so after the breakdown crying jag on my mom's bed, I asked her for some diabetes books. She handed me one of her glucose monitors that she never uses anymore, and a brand new lancing device. She showed me how to use them. Then told me to read up, and get to the dr. Oy. I've been around diabetics my whole life. I just thought I had more time before I joined the ranks (I mean seriously, it runs in our family, I figured it would happen some day no matter what I did). Here's to lifestyle changes when I have no choice any longer.
Hoorah. I got this.
