So….. I had a doc appointment today. I haven’t been doing the best as far as my meds and water, so I knew my numbers would be WAY out of wack. I made up in my mind even before my appointment that I would give myself 90 days to get myself together.
My PA Nat is a cool chick. I let her know what had been going on with me and my family. She listened, took my hand and said, “Do you need me to do anything, prescribe anything?” I told her I was good, I just needed my familiar 90 days to get back on track. As we were walking out of the examination room, she touched me on the shoulder and said, “Call me if you need me. I mean it.” I thanked her again and we parted ways.
My A1C only went up .3 points and I gained 10 lbs. I thought my A1C would be higher so I’m encouraged. My BP was up though; I guess those baby back ribs I ate yesterday did NOT help.
As each day goes by, I feel better. I now have some baseline numbers so I can set some wellness goals. In the past, I would make myself work towards my goals no matter how I felt. This time, I am releasing control of my wellness journey and taking things slow. I will walk and work in my flowers again at some point.
Stay tuned, KP’s Wellness Journey Continues….
