Today has been one of those days when you just "do the next thing." I got up and exercised, then had breakfast and showered. Then I had to do the one-foot-in-front-of-the-other thing - just keep plodding along. I'm pretty tired, but I've been very careful how I ate today, so my blood sugar isn't quite as high as it was - although it's still high enough that my doctor is not going to be happy. I'm not even happy! LOL
Speaking of the doctor, I called his office today - and he was out for the day! I have to wait and call back tomorrow. I'm hoping he will renew my prescription without having to see me. I'm also going to have him refer me to a diabetes educator. I took diabetes classes when I was first diagnosed, almost eight years ago. In order to qualify for the insurance supplement that will pay for my diabetes testing supplies, I have to attend a diabetes class here and show proof that I have done so. So there are two reasons I need to take an up-to-date class. I read a lot, which leaves me lots of room for confusion. I want my own personal diabetes educator/nutritionist to tell me exactly what to do and how to fix it if it doesn't work. Part of my frustration is just simple uncertainty about exactly what to eat, how much to exercise, how often to test my blood sugar - all things that would be taught in a diabetes class.
Ok, I'm through whining now. I'm trying to listen to the Leadership Conference at Lancaster Baptist Church. It was doing fine for the first 30 minutes or so, and now I can't get a good stream going again. They're broadcasting each service of the conference live this week. Wes and I had considered going, but we couldn't afford a trip now and another one in August. So we'll watch it on the computer! Tonight they had a great tribute to heroes of the Fundamentalist Baptist movement. Many of the preachers mentioned I have heard preach over the years, and I had at least heard of all of them. I enjoyed that so much!
Have a great evening, and I'll see you tomorrow!
