Well folks, it's time for another quarterly installment. And in lieu of boring you (oh wait, I already am...) with long, drawn out adjective ridden, emotional statements emphasizing my hatred for all thing "Endocrinologist-related", I will instead highlight the Good News and the Bad News. Keep in mind, I am being candid, so please don't be judgin'.
Good News: I only had to wait 5 minutes past my scheduled appointment time. This is huge. Seriously.
Bad News: My weight is "trending up" says the 40 lb overweight doc. Thanks. Thankyouverymuch. I have been noticing sir, in fact I listed it on my "update sheet" for the nurse before you made me feel like a pile of dogcrap. Because, you see, I have been making efforts to reverse the "trending" and am having a very difficult time. Anyway, I will complain more about you in a few lines...
Good News: My A1c is down 0.1%. It may not be much, but hey, its "trending" in the right direction, unlike said weight.
Bad News: After asking the doc several questions about reversing the trend towards heavy, and getting no answers even remotely worth a damn, I have decided Mr. Doc, that you, yourself are Bad News. Because it sucks when Wikipedia is more informative than you.
Ridiculous News: And Mr. Doc? Could you be any more ridiculous than ripping me a new one for my weight and then proceeding to tell me on your way out that "remember Thanksgiving and Christmas are only 2 days [insert cheesy grin]"?!?!?!?! Ri-gosh-darn-diculous.
The Picture News: Here's the waiting room, or as I like to call it the "WAITING to get pissed off" ROOM pic for the Flickr group Waiting With Diabetes.
Overall News: I think I should have waited until after the JDRF walk to get the requisite guilty/depressed feeling courtesy of 'le doctor. Ughh...I am "le tired" of him. And if you are pissy like me today too, then I suggest you watch one of my favorite short films of all time.
And just a reminder, there is still time to donate for my JDRF walk on Sunday! Shout out to Mom and Dad for your donation ;-)
