March 29, 2010

Ok, more time has passed, and not much has changed..... Well, there is one thing...... I feel better than I have in months, maybe more than a year.

My blood sugar level is under control, and I am beginning to have some energy. What a relief, I was beginning to think that I would never feel good again. I still do not have any stamina, but I think that will return as I am able to be more active.

I spent the day preparing for a “creditors meeting” tomorrow..... If I can’t get the opposing attorney to take care of business, I am going to file a request that the court find him in contempt. I don’t think that the judge will actually do it, but it should let me tell my story, (and annoy the opposing counsel) and the judge will probably give me my houses..... Of course, I have thought that before........

I am hoping that the dreary whiney posts are over for a while, and I can get back to doing interesting and useful things.........

Well, it has been a couple of weeks, and there is nothing much to report...... I have had some success getting my blood sugar level into the normal range. I am still surprised how debilitating a little chemical imbalance is. I have spent my time doing only the most necessary things, and sleeping. I am still trying to figure out how to survive on the recommended diet.... no sugar, no carbohydrates, no good.

I did manage to make the trip (planned and paid for long ago) to Pa. to see my folks, and go to the high school state wrestling tournament with my siblings. I managed to climb the stairs to and from our seats, but my brother had to wheel me into and out of the arena. Humbling, to say the least.

This was my first, and hopefully last, trip as handicapped..... The airline was most accommodating, but it sure felt strange.

My houses still aren’t mine yet..... the opposing counsel is dragging his feet, and causing unnecessary delays. I suppose that billing $500 per hour is reason enough for him.

My next goal is to try and get healthy....... it has been a while.

Well, finally something to be happy about....... I won my court case, and will be getting my houses back with in 2 weeks. It is an interesting story, that I am too tired to relate now, but the short version in..... they settled on the court house stairs, with some prodding from the judge.

It is almost 1 year exactly since they stopped paying the mortgage. Anyway, it will take some time, but I will be able to get my finances back in order, at least for a while.

Next is my dispute with my health insurance co.

March 3, 2010

Ok, I will make this short and sweet.... Seems that I wasn’t just miserable sick, it really was life and death. I have type 2 diabetes. I went to the Dr. and found that my blood sugar level was to high to measure (over 600).... 4 shots of insulin later..... still to high to measure..... one more shot, and blood sugar was 475. Normal is about 100-180. I guess that my next symptom would have been coma and death.

I have been to worn out to do any research regarding this condition, but will try to get some info next week.

I am sure to join a “Fear of February” support group soon.
