Week One Take God Only Knows
Friday, June 01, 2018
So I've just gotten back from the doctor's office. I haven't gained or lost anything by their scale since December but I know that 7 days ago I was at 236 and today I'm at 232. I've lost 4 pounds this first week of actually trying to see if I can make that journey into Onederland. I will be curious to see what my A1C is this time since it was atrocious in December (12.6) all my other numbers thankfully were perfect then, my sodium and chloride were actually even a little low. So the mostly vegetarian diet has helped with other things, just not my diabetes. We added one more additional med for that to see if we can get my fasting numbers down to normal and I'm supposed to go back in 3 months.
I also asked for something to help with the depression. I suffer with SAD and usually it resolves itself by April...it hasn't this year. Tears just below the surface for no reason, tired all the time, no ability to act consistently on my own desires...welcome to 50. My word for the year is "Flourish" and I wasn't flourishing in the area of my mental health so it is time once again to get some chemical assistance. I took this particular med 6 years ago and it helped immensely so I'm hopeful about it doing so again. I'll pick it up this afternoon and start it in the morning.
I'd love to go in for my September appointment at a much better weight and a healthier place all around. For now though I'm going to be pleased that Week One Take God Only Knows has been such a success. Onward!
