I've Been Away

I have been pretty busy this past month, so no updates from me. But I will be getting back to them especially since school starts in a couple of weeks.

My health has been pretty up and down. My joints continue to be the biggest problem. Normally, the sun causes problems too, but here in the Northeast, most of the summer has been cloudy and rainy and cool so that wasn't a problem. But now summer has arrived and I've been hiding in my house the past couple weeks.

I'm worried about some blood work that I got back today that was taken on Monday. It showed that I had high blood sugar and that was the second time in a row I had gotten that result. The time before the time before last (are you following?) my blood sugar was low. When I was in high school I had problems with my weight due to medications and was told I was insulin resistant. I have lost about 40 lbs since then, I watch what I eat and I exercise as much has I can. So what's going on. Also, my white blood cells were the lowest I have ever seen them. Ah well.

I got pretty sick a couple weeks ago. I ended up making the 100 mile journey to school to see my primary care doctor twice and made two trips to the ER. Two rounds of antibiotics later I am better. From what I can gather I had strep throat or another form of pharyngitis, a double ear infection, sinusitis and bronchitis. Ohh the joys of being immunocompromised.

I will write later about school starting up. I'm a little stressed about it right now for various reasons.

P.S. Hello followers!!!!!!!! I'm sorry I missed you. Also, R.I.P. Sentaor Ted Kennedy.
