I have been avoiding something for the last 4-ish months. Let me go back before that. In October of 2007, I received a diagnosis of Papillary Thyroid Cancer with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Because of the nasty “c” word, they removed my thyroid completely. A couple of years later, I had a hysterectomy. Since then I have been struggling with weight and pre-diabetes. Back to that 4 months thing: my feet have been tingling and have started hurting. So I know that things have progressed even though I have been fighting to keep the pre-diabetes at just pre. Another issue is that I cannot take metformin. I just can’t. I don’t have that much time to spend in the bathroom. My body doesn’t acclimatize to it. I’ve tried. Multiple times. So I contacted the dr about what to do about the feet and if there are other medications that aren’t metformin. Let’s see if she gets back to me.
I also got compression socks, diabetic shoes and a glucose meter. I am trying to do the things that are scaring the ever-loving hell out of me. One step at a time right?
Better news.. I got a new book to help me do astrological charts. I am currently working on my grandson’s now. It is the thing that is keeping me sane-adjacent.
