Well, I saw my Neurologist yesterday, and it went pretty quickly. He was very interested in the Diabetes diagnosis, and asked a few questions about that, and wanted to know if the Physical Therapy was helping – I said it was – and that’s about it. I did ask him about my hands going to sleep, and he did some checking for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, but nothing he did made my hands tingle. I didn’t really think it was CTS. He thought it might have something to do with the Diabetes, and wants to explore it further in 6 months if I’m still having trouble with them then. Sounds reasonable to me, as I hope to have lost enough weight in 6 months to be out of the diabetic situation.
One thing doctor’s appointments do is get me out of the house with an excuse for eating out, and I pigged out at the best Chinese restaurant buffet in town. We don’t go there too often for just that reason … we BOTH pig out. I was pleased that my blood glucose was reasonable afterwards, particularly since I had indulged in a small piece of red velvet cake for dessert. It’s so odd how I can eat at home what seems to be a 100% diabetic conscious meal and end up with high numbers 2 hours later, but have a small dessert when we eat out and not have high numbers. Weird.
I’ve dropped another pound this week, which I’m really glad of, and I’m getting to wear some clothes that I had almost given away, as I didn’t think I would get back down to that size ever again. Now THAT’s a good feeling!!!
So, without any whining, I’m going to quit this post while I’m ahead!!!
