I mean I’m not right now standing outside wearing panties and pasties. Heaven forbid. It’s rather cold!!!
It’s my lunch break and I’m actually sitting on my sofa drinking tea and eating lunch.
The sight is track pants, sweater and looking like I’ve not really slept in a long while.
It’s Friday and away goes another week of life that I frantically would like to get back and change. As you know I’ve been experiencing a hyperglycaemic period which is something very new to me.
It was very upsetting as well as surreal as no one was listening until I spoke to the 111 service. Yesterday I had blood tests I was told to expect back next week.
They were it appears returned late to the surgery yesterday and a GP had to ring me which he did early this morning.
As a result it confirmed that I was not ok and they’re sending me extra medication. I have to double the lot I take now by slowly introducing in the next week and I’ll be retested in 3 months. If it doesn’t work then it’s injections. Something I really wasn’t expecting.
I don’t want that in my life. I struggle just to do my prick tests so that thought bothers me huge time. So fingers crossed I don’t end up there.
Apparently my reads are worse than when I was initially diagnosed so I have to make huge lifestyle changes.
Covid impact? Yes . Life has been harder during this year and I guess lack of my lifestyle activities has had a huge impact. On top of that the depression I feel about lack of people contact.
I’m not alone I know. So maybe we should set up a friends group for people who struggle?
Anyhow think on that. Back to work I go. Saturday sale!!! Don’t forget.,
Satin Doll ruffle panties and panties from Entice for the Saturday Sale
It’s 10 pm here U.K. time and unlikely I’ll get much sleep tonight.
I’m exhausted to be honest but I also don’t feel I can go to bed. I’ve had a really rubbish few days. Like really rubbish. I could have said days ago, Sunday, yesterday but I didn’t.
I try and just crack on as nothing worse than a whiner.
So I had the vaccine on the 12 March and ached a few days like an old woman. Job done all over.
Wednesday last week a headache started. Got bad Thursday night/Friday morning into Saturday. Apart from headaches felt ok if not more tired .
I put it all down to side effects.
Sunday started getting an odd nausea moment now and then. Monday comes and I’m literally buzzing and more awake and alert I’ve felt in a long time. On top of that I’ve been peeing like a ridiculous constant and can’t stop drinking.
Then the nausea gets worse and keeps coming. Then the sweating. In the meanwhile I’m starting to test my sugars to make sure I’m ok. They’re reading 23 then 21 and basically been that way a few days.
Today I tried to get a call back from a doctor at the GP surgery and instead I got a call back from a nurse. I describe what I’m feeling and that I’m constantly peeing and can’t satiate my thirst.
So the first thing she says in her why you wasting my time voice was to say in a gruff voice “why are you testing your sugars” errr I’m a diabetic!! Then proceeds to tell me I shouldn’t have to. Well gosh tell the doctor then as it’s the doctor that prescribed me the stuff to record my readings.
Nurse then proceeds to tell me I either have menopause or I may need a check as she thinks I have a prolapse!!! So yes what can I say at this point? What part of diabetic did she not hear.
But let’s make things worse. I said I need to be seen. So an appointment is made for me today at 3pm. Nope not see a doctor but the paramedic!! He who doesn’t know about diabetes at all.
It gets worse. So he takes my blood pressure. It’s high but he says he isn’t worried by it, takes a blood test to read the sugar, it’s high and he says I shouldn’t worry about it as it’s normal. So again my mouth was agape. ( in my masks). Anyone with a brain cell knows a diabetic should go above 12 at the worst but 21 that’s serious.
I hand him a bottle of pee and he asks me what for. Err to check my ketones as I’m a diabetic. so he dips the stick and says yes they’re a bit high but he isn’t worried.
Then he is about to dismiss me and I say ummm I’m feeling sick, I have a constant headache, I’m sweating, peeing and can’t get enough water and my stomach pain.
Apparently I need Gaviscon and to get my eyes tested as its maybe my vision causing me to feel this way.
Glad I was wearing a mask because under it I was looking at him mouthing the C U next Tuesday word.
No I really was.
I’ve got blood test on Thursday but here I am at home in pain, feeling sick and still got high sugars. It’s 10:30 pm and I can’t go sleep like this.
Moral of the story ? Right now the NHS is questionable.
But if you want to see how incompetent today was. Don’t take my word. The phot below the credits is a text message sent to me after my consultation on the phone with the nurse.
Apparently I’m a candidate to consider being checked for diabetes!!!! Oh an apparently referring to blood tests? I don’t need to say more!
What a complete waste of time in my life that was. Seriously I can’t imagine it did much at the box office!
I love a good Armageddon / Mother Nature disaster film but sadly this was just a little so so.
Made me think more how much despite me dreaming of snow, I’m starting to yearn for lazy sunshine days by the beach now.
It’s something to look forward to and frankly if I can’t get to the beach I have a lake I can relax by and enjoy the warmer weather when it comes. Let’s hope it hurries along so I can languish like my avatar.
Though cannot say the sight of me in the same outfit as my avatar would be the same. To be fair I can guarantee it won’t.
Ava Delaney asked me if I would like to do a collab picture together. I had time today in between my dinner and editing for Paragon so slipped into my Cyber Fair gear and met up to do this. Here’s Ava’s Version
I love how we both saw the same vision yet we also both saw it differently with use of wind lights from our views.
Don’t ask me which wind light this was because lord I took pictures with dozens. I do recall it’s one with a fog effect and then I adjusted the brightness higher in edit and saturation.
I’m really loving the cyber punk looks and sci fi feels at the moment.
I think soon it’s another video in some cyberpunk place.
