#WeekendCoffeeShare with Eclecticali


If we were having coffee I would be mentioning how my pain from my Degenerative Disk Disease, Stenosis of the spine, arthritis and Fibromyalgia is constantly coming and going but has actually lessened quite a bit.


I actually have times where there is no pain and I am forgetting the pain pills whereas in the beginning I was anxiously watching the clock for the next one. My lumbar epidural is November 14. Finally less than 2 weeks left. I still have to get the EKG though.


I will be heading to my weekly brunch tomorrow morning with my BFF. We both look forward to that. Having diabetes limits my choices of food and I am on insulin. I take 3 shots with meals and a long term shot at bedtime. 4 a day plus all the finger pricking. I have been on insulin since June 7 of this year, My A1c has come down a lot and my daily readings are usually pretty low and under control usually anyhow. I have an occasional relapse for a special occasion or a low because I miscalculated my carb count. The Endocrinologist won’t like the lows. He wants my sugars above 100 and I am determined to get the numbers down to a normal range for a normal person, not normal for a diabetic. I belong to a group that has those goals. We eat under 50 carbs of grams per day and most under 20 carbs per day. Most people are losing weight with the low carb high fat diet or Keto diet (way of eating – WOE), but not working for me this time. Keeping my numbers lower, but not losing weight. So frustrating.

I got my automatic direct deposit in my new new bank account this morning and I closed my old bank account and now will be working with just the new one. Hopefully I remembered to change all automatic payments. I hated it when he asked me why I was closing it. I spun a half truth, half fib story. None of their business actually.

I wanted to get my hair cut before my lumbar epidural, but my favorite stylist is booked up until the day of my procedure so unless she gets a cancellation today I won’t be getting it done til a few weeks from now.

Have a great weekend and God Bless You All!
