Back to the Doctor

I went back to the doctor yesterday afternoon to discuss the results of my latest round of bloodwork, and I am SO disgusted. My blood sugar levels are right on the edge of being too high, and my insulin levels are also too high. He said that this is to be expected, as it is part of my polycystic ovary syndrome, and also the Metabolic Syndorome I was diagnosed with last month. He told me to expect diabetes to develop sometime within the next 10-15 years, but that I could hold it off a bit by pretending like I am diabetic now, and also by taking a new medicine called Metaformin. (Because we don't spend enough paying for prescriptions every month already!) So, like a good girl, I donated all my V-Day chocolate to my mother today. Sheesh. I told him how frustrated I was to be exercising and dieting like a freak and to just be maintaining, and not loosing. He said not to expect to loose much, and that I am working like a horse to just maintain because most people with these conditions are MORBIDLY OBESES!!!! These words should not be uttered to a former anorexic. Sheesh!! To top it all off, I have another kidney infection. I am a wreck.
