Just got home from a night at the emergency room. Endured about 12+ hours of pretty intense pain in my stomach, was beginning to think something was really wrong. My wonderful friend Miss Julia took me in when I finally admitted to myself that something was not right. They gave me morphine to cut the pain and an IV with fluids because I was dehydrated… and ran some blood tests and such to see what might be up.
Suspected it might be my gall bladder finally acting the fool, but turns out, nope, everything was fine there. Some sort of gastrointestinal virus was causing the pain and other symptoms. Should pass in a day or two, they gave me some nausea and pain meds for that.
But then the Doctor had to drop the heavy news. He’s pretty sure I have diabetes.
Wow. Okay. Hmmmm. Still kinda trying to wrap my noodle around it all. Funny, I gave up pop three days ago, and have been working on getting my diet in order. Even ordered a juicer a few days ago… guess it’s time to learn how to use it.
Not really sure what is the next step, but he suggested I follow up with my regular doctor and get a firm diagnosis.
Aside from just the normal stuff everyone knows about diabetes, I really don’t know a whole lot on the care, the life expectancy, the issues and results of such a thing. Kinda scarey for sure. Still kinda just thinking about it all, guess it’s time for some serious life changes, goals and thinking. And praying, of course.
Lots of praying.Pin It
