How was your April? Tell me some good stories, because my April sucked. I never use my blog as an outlet for personal problems but yet I think it’s important to share this.
At the beginning of the month, I was diagnosed with depression after some tough months. Thankfully my anti-depressants have started taking effect and I am starting to see a way up. I’m not there yet but I hope to get there soon.
To further compound my problems, routine blood tests came back with elevated blood glucose levels, and after further tests, I was given a diagnosis of impaired glucose tolerance, a step well on the way to Type 2 diabetes. I have an appointment with an endocrinologist to investigate this further in the end of May.
This means that my diet has to be changed completely, thankfully I already took one of my biggest steps towards improving my diet a few months ago by giving by drinking Coca Cola, but giving up the last remnants of sugar in my diet was a struggle.
I also have to work on losing a couple of pounds and improve my fitness, but as I’m on the jobhunt again, I will have much more time to devote to getting fit and healthy.
I don’t have any other plans for May other than improve my health and search for a new job, and hopefully this month will be far better than the previous.
