I’m going to apologize for being gone for so long. I’ve been gone too long. I think if I remember rightly the last time I was here was when I was preparing for my endocrinologist appointment. I guess I should update you on that; I’m now on a new medication that most people have heard of because of commercials on the television — Januvia. I must admit it’s not as bad as I feared, but you know that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try harder to get myself off all my medications! No sir! I’m actually trying even harder than I did before; this is different from when I was pre-diabetic. When I was pre-diabetic, I recall telling myself and others something to the effect of “What does it matter what I do? I am going to be diabetic anyway! I might as well enjoy all this food.” Sadly, that’s exactly what happened: I became diabetic and didn’t change until I was forced to because I was told so many different and horrible things could happen to me (e.g., I could lose a limb due to complications with my diabetes). I’m not about to let that happen again!
Now that I’ve been on that prescription for almost a month, my blood sugar/glucose seems to be mostly in check. It’s not as great as I’d like, but it’s definitely not as bad as it was. I’m back to having about 124 mg/dl to 140 mg/dl as a fasting reading. It had been over 140 mg/dl (one day I remember it was 175 mg/dl 😥 )!
I’m now reading and hearing reports of Trump repealing the Affordable Healthcare Act and I’m really hoping that it doesn’t happen because that’s the only way I can afford my healthcare (prescriptions, treatment, and doctor visits). It also enables me to get insurance in the first place because most health insurances won’t take me as I have so many pre-existing conditions. 😥
Here’s something more positive! I actually have been very busy working on a new service for C & S Productions. I’ve asked on lots of social media outlets, hypothetically, what would people think if we switched gears and did video editing. Not a single person responded, but on Twitter I got a few re-tweets which told me, I might be on to something. So for the past 2-3 weeks I’ve been working on editing several videos and finally have 2 videos to show for all my hard work. Initially, I planned to show live action videos (which included family) but instead switched to my animation projects and other CGI videos. I am happy to say things have 2 videos (one is a demo reel and one is a video ad) to show off my video editing skills. Maybe, soon-ish, I’ll post a video here or a link to one of them.
I guess that’s all for now. Again, I apologize for being gone too long. I’ll try to update more in the near future (hopefully before Easter or on Easter).
Love and prayers, as always! ❤
