Lab results are in

Remember how a few months back I went and got a diabetes test done? ( April 13th entry and April 16th entry ) Well, I finally got in to see my doc and find out the results. The conclusion: I do NOT have diabetes (whoopee!), but I have "resistant insulin". Whazzat, you ask? Apparently, my insulin is lazier than I am and doesn't kick it into gear for the first couple of hours after I eat something. Which means high blood sugar levels. Then it kicks in, and everything is hunky-doory.

The solution: a low dosage of a lovely drug named metformin. It kicks my insulin in the arse, and decreases the amount of sugar my liver produces. Since it is a medication usually given to patients with type 2 diabetes, I got a nice little pamphlet about eating the diabetic way. Hey, I finally found out how to read all those funny triangles, squares, and other symbols that are after the ingredient list on food. *smirks* Also might explain why even though I work-out and eat sensibly, or am lazier than a snail on valium, my weight doesn't change that much. One thing that concerns me though: blood sugar levels lead to "sexual function problems" *snickers*, and since this drug combats that from happening, I have a higher risk of getting knocked up. *shudders* I can't imagine more of me running about. The world would be in grave danger.

So, roughly $15 (for this month of pills) and a few hours later, I have decided that, for the sake of the world as we know it, I can't go "foolin' around". *sighs* Not that this was much of an issue at the current moment, but now I feel better that I shouldn't due to medical reasons and not due to lack of opportunity. *grins ruefully*

*hugz* well. You can always double wrap, or use a condom and a femidom. How sexy is that!? But anyway. Remember, if any of this is getting you down, just think of me stuck in a small dark room with a bald man and and old man discussing the pattern of light shining through my balls. Because if my discomfort can't bring someone else amusement, then what the hell was the point?

Well, you are such a hard working individual, you feel the need to type extra letters when they are not necessary. So, you're not an idiot, just an over-achiever. *looks around* Yeah... that's... it....

Well, I guess that beats getting a kick in the ass!

I'm glad your entries are entertaining. I can't even muster the glee to write in mine!

Oh, come on now! I have nothing to write about, yet that never stops me from rambling on and on for eternity. With practice, the use of inane one-sided conversations will come quite naturally.... *grins* The Wordy One has spoken. Take these words o' wisdom, and let them be your light.
