Tic Toc go to the Doc...

So...went to see Janet *my nurse practishioner* today. I told her how I'm concerned about my blood pressure dropping so suddenly out of the blue and she did the same thing I've been doing for months. Looked through all her medical books and ruled most everything out. The two things she's concerned about are insulin defientcy *which I pray to god I don't have since I'm taking three shots a day...and if it's that it's likely I'd have to go on a pump* and a problem with the left ventricle of my heart. I'm going in this afternoon to have a chest x-ray and EKG done to rule out the latter. And I'm going to make a strong effort to keep my sugars PERFECT and monitor closely just how it affects the symptoms I'm having. If all this gets ruled out then the next step we're thinking of taking is accupuncture.

Bleh...work.

More later.

But being good isn't any fun.

Besides...it's not that that's making me sick. It's my blood pressure.

But like I'm said...I'm being overly cautious with my sugars just in case anyhow...so no worries.
