OK, that was what, a couple of months?

Guess what? It seems I've broken my addiction to frequent blogging!

Sorry about that folks. It has been a couple of months since my last update and I apologize for that. Lots of reasons, but no excuses.

I've gotten a lot of questions about how I'm doing with the insulin, and I have to say, not that well. It does not seem to be changing my blood sugar numbers one darn bit. I've had my dosage increased and still, nothing.

I do go back to the doctor's office next week for more lab work and then see the doctor the next week. We'll see what happens next. Clearly, we have not found the answer if all this medicine is just making my numbers go higher.

On top of the numbers themselves, I've just not been feeling hunky or dory. No energy to speak of.

I've been trying to get my house organized better but my lack of energy is making that slow going as well.

And because of that, I haven't done much of anything to write about. I've made a few trips to Stillwater, about 40 miles to my south, but that's about as far as I've traveled. My aunt has been pleading with me to come to Missouri for a visit for a LONG time now, so the next holiday I get probably will mean a trip up that way. I expect that will be for July 4 if I can, indeed, get more than two days off in a row.

Yes, that's one of the problems with my job. I still put in too many hours without adequate time off, but that is unlikely to change as long as I am here. So I just have to keep trying to get people to understand that only being able to count on having Sunday off puts a definite cramp in my ability to live.

Well, I wish I had more to update. It's past my bedtime and I'm sinking fast so I better just publish this for now and try to catch up more very soon.

It has gotten hot here, but it was cool today. I wouldn't mind more cool tomorrow!

I have improved my blood sugar more by cutting out all sugar and walking 30 minutes a day than I ever did on the medication. It hasn't been easy, but it has been better!
