2018 Looking Back

The first few months was not all that great. I was mildly overweight, sluggish, and sleeping a lot more than I should have been. Also, I would make numerous trips to the bathroom, and getting weaker each day. Then, on the night of May 14, I so fucking weak, that I need help to getting up off of the couch. i told my live-in partner to call for the ambulance. Off to the emergency room, and the nurse started immediately working on me. I have no idea how many IVs went through, as my glucose reading was sky high. I was in ICU for 2 1/2 days, still feeding me the IVs, and that was when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

The second half of the year, I have made great strides, as the A1C is normal, blood pressure is very good, and my lungs are clear, even after 40 plus years of smoking. I actually quit smoking, the same day I was admitted in the hospital. plus my weight is where it should be.

Now, I watch what I eat and drink, and it’s working out, for the better.

sitting
staring
and
contemplating
what
could be
lurking
in the
darkness
of the
universe
that
has
been
around
for eons
is
there
life
out
there
and if so
what
kind of
life
do they
live
can
they
see us
and
if they
can
do wonder
what
they
think
about us
it would be
interesting
to find
