Fasting numbers still high


My fasting number this morning was 216. Definitely still high although better then the 300 plus the hospital was getting. Have a few weeks to wait to see the PCP and whether he is going to do something this time or I have to demand treatment and/or get a endocrinologist. I have so many drs in my life. Half I don’t see right now thankfully, but I need a few more as more and more things go wrong with my health.

Tonight I go to the chiropractor and must remember to tell him that I had a Lymes test done. He is one of the drs insisting I have Lymes Disease. Actually I just called his office and left a message in case I forget.

I do thank the Lord for giving me my life back and for allowing me to continue with his plan for my life.

Praise the Lord,

Tessa

 

After the Lymes test


I had to go to the APN psychiatric nurse for my medications.

I had to go to the pharmacy and get the diabetes supplies, and new scripts. One had to be ordered as always. Had to go back because they forgot to give me the meter.

I messed with it for quite a while to get it working. I usually don’t have trouble with these meters. Before dinner my reading was 237. Still too high.

Charity care has been approved for 100% so I don’t owe the hospital  over $2000 now. Just a few smaller bills for other things.

Praise the Lord,

Tessa

Lymes test done, now the wait


Went this morning and got my Lymes test blood drawn. She did a good job. I barely felt the stick.

At 3:30 PM I have my psych nurse appointment about my medicine. It is giving me terrible insomnia.

After that I have to go pick up my diabetic supplies.

Busy day for  me.

 

Praise the Lord,

Rheumatologist, Lymes Disease and Fibromyalgia…


I asked about the possibility of a misdiagnosis of Fibromyalgia rather than Lymes Disease and he says I probably have both as many a case of Fibro is caused by Lymes Disease. He gave me a script so I can be retested, but he still feels I have Fibro especially too since I still have the target/trigger points. Should know something in a couple of weeks.

The treatment for chronic Lymes is IV antibiotics for a good length of time. Though if it is can lessen some of this pain I should be most grateful.

Love,

Tessa

 

Cooked dinner…


Well as a step in making myself more useful and not something to be pitied, I cooked the dinner today. It was just chicken with veg on the side. I thought it turned out good.

I finished emptying a large box and put things away or trashed/recycled what wasn’t really needed. I pretend my son’s voice is in my head asking me “do you really need that?”

Gave the drs’ office the info so I can get my glucose meter and start checking my blood sugars. Maybe it will be ready tonight.

My chiropractor says he feels my Fibromyalgia is really Lymes Disease (chronic long term Lymes causes the same symptoms). Now my son started researching and he wants me to see if I can get the treatment (I had 2 deer ticks lodged on me for 3 days years ago) and see if that helps. I don’t know where to start or if the insurance will pay for it since the last test was negative except for one positive band out of the 4-5 required. Dr says those tests are no good anyhow. They are saying a lot of people are being mis-diagnosed.

Love,

Tessa
