I was tagged to do this wonderful challenge, and as I love quotes, I decided to do it!
So here goes, quotes on good health!
Good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings
It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.

so i just got back home from my diabetic review. i had to go to my gp and see his nurse in the practice, and then see the doctor as well. all is good. the great thing is, i am no longer diabetic! my blood sugars show I have reversed the diagnosis, because I am losing weight. I am so delighted. All my hard work payed off. My sugar today was 5.2 and the last time I checked it it was 6.5. But my overall A1C is great. I know the numbers are done differently in different countries, but mine went from 48 the last one I had done to 41 now, and it has to be 42 for a diabetes diagnosis. I got an ECG on my heart and all is good there too. My vitamin B 12 was also good and my cholesterol has come down from 6.5 to 5.4. So I dont see the gp again now for another six months. By then I’ll hopefully be down another 30 to 40 pounds in weight. The nurse was thrilled that I was going to the gym and that I’ve lost 15 kg or 35 pounds since feburary. I asked my gp if I can come off my metphormin but he said no to that. He said that even though I am no longer diabetic now, that they use metphormin for other things like prventing polycystic ovary disease and stuff like that so he said I have to stay on it forever. Thats fine with me. Its only 2 pills a day. And it will also ensure that things stay in check with my blood sugars too which will be good. So I’m good with staying on it. So overall a great appointment and I am really pleased with how it went.
yeah! it sure is! hahaha 😀
tomorrow morning I have to go to my GP. I have to get bloods taken. I am having a full blood count and having my thyroid, cholesterol and kidneys and liver checked, as well as also having an A 1 C done.
I hate needles. I am very nervous about going. I dont want to be stuck with a needle! I hope the nurse is good and will tell me before she actually takes the blood.
More to the point, I hope she can actually get a vein! I have awful veins! I mean they are really bad. Sometimes doctors cant even get a vein to come up thats how bad they are. So heres hoping the nurse can find one.
I am having my last cup of coffee now. I have to fast from midnight. I am hoping I will get good results and that maybe my diabetes is reversed if I am lucky! I wont know the results for about a week though.
My goals on this wednesday are
take a shower
care for nitro
See dr. barry
Go to lunch with my colleagues from friendly call
Finish my current book
Eat healthy and make good food choices
If I can achieve all of them I’ll be thrilled!
so i got my flu shot. it was not painful at all. i thought it would be. i was pleasantly surprised.
i told the nurse to tell me when she was going to put the needle in my arm. she did that and everything went ok. it was over in a matter of seconds. am very pleased its done and over with now!
I asked her to book me in for bloods. She looked and said I hadnt had a full blood panel done since 2016. So she booked me in. The soonest I could get was for two weeks time. So on the 19th I will go have my blood taken, my liver, kidneys, and cholesterol checked. I will also have an A1C. And other bloods done as well.
I’m glad I dont go to my GP’S surgery very often. The wait is a killer! There was plenty of people lining up to see the nurse! Ah well, its all over now for another year. And hopefully I can avoid the flu or a nasty strain of it at least.
Just home from therapy. It was good. Productive. We just had lunch and now are waiting for our sister to pick us up. Must go get our flu shot. Not looking forward to getting a needle in my arm. I am not a fan of needles at the best of times. You’d think I would be used to them since I am on a 3 monthly shot for psych reasons. But I don’t think you ever actually get used to needles. Anyway. I hope its pretty painless. And I hope there is no side effects from it.
Will write more about therapy later this evening if I am able.
I didn’t sleep too well last night. I was tired, and I went to bed and was watching tv, and was falling asleep watching it, so I turned off the tv, and I did sleep for a few hours, but I woke at 4 AM and couldn’t get back to sleep, so got up.
I have therapy at 10. I am enjoying the peace and quiet of the early morning. I am enjoying a nice cup of tea. I am wondering how therapy will go. I’m sure it will be ok. We are doing a lot of hard work at the moment. There is no anxiety around going today though which is nice.
I have to go to my GP later today and see the nurse, I am getting my flu injection. Mom is going too she’s also getting one. My sister will take us and drop us off on her way to work, I will just have a little time to grab lunch when I get home from therapy before I will have to be ready to leave.
I also have to go get dog food today. I just have enough to feed nitro this morning. I buy a months worth of dog food at once. Luckily my cheque came in so I have the money to go buy it for him. I’ll do it after I see the nurse and then my sister will drop me home afterwords.
So yep I have a busy day ahead!
