Today was just a day full of doctor's appointments. First I went to my General Practioner and we discussed my asthma and my diabetes. The conclusion of the conversation was that to get my diabetes under better control (or rather to prevent it from getting out of control), I need to lose five pounds. I have been doing so excellently as far as my sugar levels go, but I have gained some weight as of late, so he wants me to lose five pounds by my next visit. I should be able to manage five pounds or something is wrong with me. He asked me why I had put on weight, and I told him because I have been eating too much! Duh!
After this it was off to the lab to get blood tests. I had a great phlebotomist. I didn't even feel him withdraw my blood!
I also went to my psychiatrist today. She adjusted my medicine once again. I am taking awhile to come down from the hypomania for some reason. I just want to stay up all the time (I mean not go to sleep very often!). I am hyperactive with lots of energy and I do lots of projects. These are signs that I am still hypomanic. I can't wait until the medicine makes me even again. I just want to be normal.
Let's see, what's new? Chelsea was sick for five days but is feeling better now. She was finally diagnosed at the emergency room. She was suffering from acid reflux. I can't wait to spend more time with her now that she is feeling better. Matt is doing ok and made it through Hurricane Frances ok. Let us pray that Hurricane Ivan doesn't hit him this weekend. Maybe I said that in an earlier entry, but we can never have too many prayers!
Nothing is too much new with me. I have been playing around with my computer learning new things. It has been so much fun for me. I have also read a few photography books. I don't know the technical side of photography yet. The books were just on how to take a good picture. Like what makes a good photograph. I found what was said fascinating. I learned some things that never occured to me, and read some things I already new, that were instinct to me. Oh, I think photography is going to be fun! I think one of the best things about a good picture is enjoying your subject! Especially if people are involved. Just a thought.
Hope everybody has a good weekend!
