Default Hello again. :)

Jeez, so where have I been ...

Last fall I posted less and less but I was carrying 17 hours at the local UCLA. Then in the winter I took 10 or 12 hours ... Physics, Chem, and related labs. Amazing how much time that can chew up. Not to say the Fine Folks at NCT are distractions but I couldn't afford distractions. I got out of the habit of posting.

Started a garden. First garden I did by myself ever. Boy, did I learn about spacing tomato plants and putting in too much lettuce seed! LOL!

I need to know how to harvest some herbs adn when I Googled 'harvesting boxwood' NTC popped at the top of the list. That reminded me of this site and I figured I should drop by.

This isn't the only time I thought of this site. A while back Wife came home and said she bought spaghetti sauce ,,,, and handed me 3 or 4 packs of meat and bone. So I find myself outside early one beautiful summer morning grilling these meats and bones when I get this feeling and start looking over my shoulder. I was looking for the Cardinals and Blue Birds bringing my Crown and Cape. I despise Disney but I felt like I was in one of their movies. I wondered who I could share this with ... My Wife and the fine folks at NTC.

To know why this is shareworthy you would need to know something else which happened in the past few months. I went to the doctor for the first time in years, had a blood pressure of 146 or so (I forget what it was over, I choked on the 146). He said 'blood work and MRI (MRI because I told him about my nerve pain).

Short of it is, I'm a Type 2 Diabetic. Outstanding!

No, really, it is.

For years I was going to Doctors because I felt like CRAP. I would hurt when I went to bed and wake up feeling worse. Many mornings I would wake depressed and it wasn't uncommon to feel like ... well, like I did something the night before and the Cops (or someone) was going to bust down the door and take me away .... It got so bad I went to a Shrink, thats another story.

So I went to the Doc (My burning through "Doctors" is another story), this one had been my Doctor for 5 or 6 years but I never went to him because experience had demonstrated there was no point, and I told him about what was going on, and he sends me for blood work and the MRI.

I had blood drawn Saturday morning. Monday before 0830 the Doctors office called and was setting me up with an ASAP appointment. No kidding, must have found something. A Fasting Blood Sugar of 150.

Damn, this is turning out to be a pretty long post ,

For the last couple of months I have watched my sugar and taken care of what I ate, and guess what?

I no longer wake up depressed and gloomy or sore and aching.

In retrospect I can see where I have probably been a diabetic for years if not decades.

I guess I'll go to the Chit Chat off topic forum(s) to make the rest of this post, I mean, I did just come in to see how to trim boxwood basal. LOL!

Wow, thanks for sharing. Glad to hear they finally figured out what the heck was going on. Hopefully you got your blood pressure under control also.

And last but not least I'm glad google is still our friend and helps folks find NCT or remember us here at NCT.

Welcome back Wart!!!!!!!!

Good to hear from you again. Good you now have a diagnosis, you should be able to keep it under control.

Thanks for the re-welcome.

Yeah, the Diagnosis, now that it's known what it is it can be watched, handled, taken control of.

I can be sort of pissed at the medical profession for not catching this years ago, OTOH I have personal experience with the painfully obvious slipping through the cracks.

About the BP, I checked it at my drug dealers .... I mean the pharmacies kiosk yesterday.

116/67.

All I did was stopped adding salt. Well, that and got off my dead ass.

Salt, isn't that a subject?

I had planned the garden before the diagnosis. Actually not a garden, more an herb patch because I got tired of paying for fresh herbs.

Then I figured A tomato plant ... then Alba (Wife) got involved. Thats another story. LMAO!

I started watching my sodium intake, referencing the meats and bones in my initial post, I was making that sauce with canned tomatoes. I looked at the 'nutritional information' on the label. There was an astounding amount of sodium.

Now I'm glad I have 4 tomato plants.

Darn, spent too much time here already, Have to pick herbs for the practice run for the Herb Bread I'm entering in the county fair this year.

Yep, salt is a major factor in high BP. I found that out the hard way also. I am also reading lables and shocked at how much sodium is in even bottled water let along soda's and such. Canned goods are full of it also.
Best way to break away from it is to grow your own ....lucky you got a head start on that.

good luck in the county fair.
