Diabetic. And have to have an eyeball scan thingie. AND I have to have a pulmonary function test and the heart stress test. AND have a colonoscopy, but that’s not until June. And my liver enzymes aren’t all right. And I have circulatory issues in my feet (she said related to diabetes) — she could just barely feel a pulse. Sheesh.
WHAT THE GODDAMN EVERLOVIN’ FUCK!!!????
Oh, and I got a third type of inhaler. I asked why I needed this new kind along with the Symbicort and the albuterol, and the pharmacist said they are all part of COPD treatment because they all do different things. Ugh.
So now I have to start checking my blood sugar first thing in the morning 3 times a week. I have to go to some diabetic class to learn about managing diabetes with diet and exercise.
And next week I get to have an ultrasound done on my boy bits to see what that extra lump in the scrotum might be all about.
I was sort of freaking out and the doctor essentially said you haven’t been doing these things all along so now we have to catch up. Once you get yourself all in order then it’s just maintenance.
