Still Kicking

Hey all,

Just wanted to check in to let you know that I'm still alive and kicking.  ;-)

Got my blood sugars under control with a pill and not insulin, thank heavens.  Then I started feeling so dizzy that I was afraid to drive.

I guess with all the weight loss it was time to adjust my heart meds.  My blood pressure has always been on the low/normal range, but with all the changes, it's been on the low/low side.

Turns out 4 of the 6 meds I take can "cause dizziness".  Ow.  I was just a faint waiting to happen.

So we've been busy messing around with them to find a better combination.  Unfortunately it makes me feel like crap.

I will be back soon, and I hope you are all doing well.

Happy to hear you are alive and kicking.

It is always a little hard to find the perfect mix/dosage of meds. but hopefully they will be able to figure it out quickly for you, and you will start feeling all the way better.

You've been on my mind-- So happy you checked in and were able to get the sugar levels under control without injections.

Sorry about the dizziness. I sure hope that passes quickly and you're feeling better soon.

I'm cheering you on. xo jj

I was reading the above article yesterday, and wondered about this Joe Soll...(I am an adoptee) I contacted him via e-mail and said he had a nightly chat room that he monitored from 11 P.M.-12:45 A.M. every evening...so I thought eehh what the heck...see what he's all about.
HOLY CRAP BATMAN YOU WERE RIGHT!
This guy is an egomaniac with an inferiority complex.
I don't think I have ever met or heard a person that is more controlling than this Bozo...This guy can actually tell you how you feel...It's flippin' amazing. Scary thing is..most of the people that were chatting were late teens and early 20's..I am 55 and a retired Lineman (electrician).
I pulled him up short when he told me "how I felt" and BOY did he get pissy...he was snivelling like a little school girl.
Sad part is these younger people are taking advice from this nutball, (did I mention that I dont care for this guy?) and taking his words as though they are the Gospel and runnin with it....So the last line I posted with him was...Congradulatios! You are my "Almond Joy Man."
Sometimes you feel like a nut.
Sometimes you don't.
What a moron.
