I haven't been feeling all that well over the last couple of months. Nothing serious, just the occasional bout of dizziness and fatigue. It was easy to put this off to the holidays and all the busy that goes along with it. Nothing that you would think necessary to schedule a doctor visit. Then I had a birthday and it occured to me that I haven't actually been to the doctor in more than 3 years. Healthy as a horse. So off I went for one of those wellness checkups.
Cholesterol - pretty good
Blood pressure -excellent
Lung function - fine for an asthmatic
Liver function - excellent
Fasting blood glucose - not so great
I thought I was invincible when it came to the game of genetics roulette. The good news is that I have some answers to why I've been feeling a little off. The bad news is that I can't really change a lot in my diet (the usual first approach). More than 6 months ago I gave up sugar along with a lot of other unhealthy eating habits. Well except for the chocolates at Christmas. They were Lindt after all. A girl can only resist temptation for so long. And Lindt chocolate is an extreme temptation.
The good news. I've already conquered the diet issues, well except for the Lindt lapse. The point of all this? This blog is probably going to continue to have infrequent updates over the next few weeks as I sort through this medical issue and another that I don't even want to think about at all.
I'm still working. Just working quite slowly. I have some pretties that came out of the kiln a while ago. They'll probably land in the shop on Monday.
Meanwhile, I have always appreciated the support, kindness and friendship I've found out here in the land of blog. I thank you all for that. I just wanted you all to know that I'm actually still here, just in a much quieter, contemplative, and inconsistent version of me. I'm pretty sure that the other me will be back soon.
