|Lunch with the Girls|
Jamie took me home and I had a nice surprise when I got home. Frank was cooking fried okra, and hamburger patties. He sliced up some tomatoes to go along with it, and it was delicious. What a treat for me as Frank doesn't cook very often. He tells me he isn't a cook. Jamie and I had stopped by the store on our way home, and I had picked up some chicken and salads thinking that would be an easy and fast dinner for us. We had that for lunch the next day.
The nurse from Dr. Gorman's office called during the week and said everything was normal in my blood work. I realized later that she didn't give me my A1C results, so Bret suggested that I have them fax my results to his office. When I went into Bret's for a treatment he told me that by Europe's standards I did have a thyroid problem, but the US had moved up to a higher number in the blood test. So that explains some of my fatigue. Bret and I talked about Lipitor for my cholesterol, and all of the bad side effects from this medication. I decided to quit taking it, and I swear I felt better the next day, and the best part is that the dizziness went away. To my surprise my A1C test hadn't been done, so now I have to call the doctor's office and see if this was a mistake . I think it was as I had made the appointment for a Diabetic check. The nurse seemed to be in outer space that day, as she put my weight at over 200 lbs and the doctor had to weigh me again. She is the one who does the blood work. I am thinking either the doctor didn't have it marked or she spaced it. Thanks heavens I didn't weigh 200 lbs. even though I still weigh too much. Oh, and when Frank went in to the doctor to get his finger stitched up, the nurse told him she was waiting for me to come in for my blood work. I had a bruised arm proving I had the blood work done. Go figure, so I am thinking she spaced the A1C test so I will have to go in and get stuck again, and I am a hard stick.
I was reading in one of my Diabetic magazines that fatigue goes along with Diabetes and is a common complaint. So I guess I have to resolve myself to the fact that I will always have fatigue.
