At what point did my body start to fall apart? My doctor gave me the best diagnosis ever -- LOSE WEIGHT! How would that have escaped my attention? He must think I have no mirrors at home. But in all fairness, he's a great doctor and what he had to say was more than just words, and let me tell you he did not mince the words he used.
So, I gotta cut the carbs and a whole bunch of other stuff that's on the pamphlets I got. Next step is to do some research on type 2 diabetes and get started on that walking routine I kept planning on; now's the time for it.
Wish me luck!
P.S. -- as for my thumb, got a brace for it; tiny fracture. It only hurts when I try to grab a door knob to open, twist open a cap or pill bottles, sweep with a broom (very hard to do with the left hand), squeeze a sponge; basically any function that requires my use of the thumb to complete a function causes me killer pain!
Do you know the expression "feeling your age?" Well, I must be feeling somebody's age and let me tell you -- that it totally sucks!
