I am behind in pretty much everything including sending account expiration notices.
In March I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. At the time the only symptom I had was mild burning in my feet but after they started treatment it turned in to frequent body-wide from the neck down burning hell. Also allodynia where touch becomes pain.
This varies in intensity quite a bit. Some days pain is minimal and I am pretty functional, others it makes sleep impossible until it’s light out again.
If you call in the morning and I am unavailable, this is likely why. In that case please do leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I can.
I have made great progress in getting my blood glucose down. I’ve gone from an A1C value of 13.5% to 8.4% in two months. My doctor said this is quite possibly the fastest reduction he has ever seen. So I’m making progress. I am working towards getting it down to 6.7% or below at which point hopefully my nerves will begin to heal. That is a very slow process as nerves grow about a millimeter per month.
In the meantime I am working with doctors to better manage my neuropathy pain and improve my functionality and struggling to catch up with work. So please be patient with me, I’m not ignoring you, just a bit overwhelmed with health issues.
