Yeah, That’s Me…

Well, here I am, another week and I have to say this one is a bit different.

First of all, I do not feel very well.  Can’t say I am sick, but I am a bit nauseous, tired, and well done in.  Now, the tired could explain it all.  I mean, I am tired and when that happens, nothing else seems to go very well.  Are you that way?  I am tired because I sleep so poorly at night.  Small update! – I ran out of my Rx sleep aid two nights ago and so did not have any that night.  I took my herbals and, well, I slept just as good.  That is a striking difference from not sleeping at all when I ran out before.  So, yesterday, I picked up my Rx ($44) and decided to not use it again last night.  Result?:  the same.  I slept just as I did the night before.  I am setting the Rx aside for now and will keep trying.  I decided that if I go an hour without falling asleep, I will get up and take it.  I am also going to try going to bed earlier.

Next up?  My vegan diet attempt.  It has been over 7 weeks and I must say I feel I am still doing well.  My blood sugar may go up, but it goes up slower and it drops very fast when it is high.  I measured it today and it dropped 76 points in an hour!  That’s as compared to 8-10 before.  I think this means my body is doing better at processing the blood sugar.  We shall see.  I went to the doctor yesterday.  My weight was down a bit (my scales at home first thing in the morning show a current 6.2 lbs. in 7 weeks).  My blood pressure measured at 110/70 (great!).  I had my blood tests so I will know that by Friday and will update you.  My current A1c is 6.9 (Borderline).  I am hoping for about 6.7 with this test and an eventual 5.7.  As I have said before, I am also looking for a removal of some Rx.  Specifically, my Simvastatin (cholesterol) as I don’t take it in anymore.  Also, I hope that my sugar meds and my blood pressure meds can be reduced or AH! done away with.  We will see.  I am not in a hurry.  I feel better than ever; my movements are better and with less pain; and I have more energy overall.  Happy for me.

But, as I said, today I am BLAH!  It’s a bit late, so I will close here and head off to bed.  I will continue the practice of doing my two writing prompt posts on Wed and Thu evenings and try to do a Friday post like this one.  Thank you for keeping up with reading me and commenting.  I am still trying to read a lot of your posts.

Namaste,

Scott
