Still here. Still working on a better me. Just haven't had a spare moment to blog.
My blood work finally came back. After umpteen calls to my doctor's office, they finally gave me the results. Negative for rheumatoid arthritis, triglycerides were high, something else was high, and my thyroid levels (?) were normal. The Dr. put me on a diabetic medicine for a while... in the back of my mind I knew it was quite possible that I've moved into full-blown diabetes, but I was still a little surprised. She's also sending me for a thyroid scan- I go once, take a capsule, go six hours later for some kind of scan, then go 24 hours after that for yet another scan. Sounds delightful, doesn't it? Ugh.
+ I went through a drive-thru for breakfast today, but I only ordered one breakfast burrito instead of my usual two.. and I skipped the greasy hash browns. Celebrate the small steps, right?
+ I'm on a new medication and I'm having more tests done. Hopefully soon I'll know why I've been feeling so crappy and what to do about it.
+ I see from my Feedjit below that this blog is picking up some traffic. If you're visiting and have your own diet blog, drop me a comment so I can come and check your blog out, too!
