past year of events...

Posted 09-21-2011 at 05:24 AM by Dr. Mel

Let's see....about this time last year I found out I was diabetic and hit an all time high of 264. I was living in one house with three kids and my husband 4 1/2 hours away at the main house. I was working two jobs, tired all the time, finishing up my doctoral project, and TIRED ALL THE TIME.

Fast forward in the year's time and I feel like a failure as a parent as my youngest moved home to be with daddy (Halloween), graduate with my doctor of nursing practice, take a family trip to New Orleans, and come back home for Christmas and to do the pre-op prep for surgery.

I have the surgery, feel miserable, and then go back to work. During all of this, plan on leaving the job so I can get closer to home with my hubby. Make the move, feeling much better physically, and then have to worry about the two oldest staying back to finish school year (thanks to help of my brother and niece who stay with them during the week).

Near June have made plans to leave the job I just started in April, have the kids under the same roof, get my gall bladder out.

Job just started, upon giving of notice, wants to let me start my new job early (make of it what you will), so I had my GB out early and then the month of complications follow.

New job finally started and much happier and less stressed. They do not know of me as being overweight. Nice change. Doing good with it. Make goal weight.

Then my step daughter killed in car accident. This has been an emotional rollercoaster to say the least.

So, in the past year, I feel like I've been through the mill. I'm ready for life to settle down some now! I continue to hope that I have good results with my gastric bypass and keep the weight off. So far so good.

I also find out that my sister in law had one but she was never told about sublingual B12 or thiamine. She looked so dull and listless when I saw her. She's taken off 76 lbs in about 5 months, which is great, but I still cannot believe that nobody told her about the B vitamin thing.

So....she now has some of the B vitamins and told what to do with them. I hope she gets feeling better.

They say death happens in 3's. Here is hoping. First the neighbor, then step-daughter, and now an uncle....I'm ready for that part to be done.

Until later.....
