I alluded to some health issues. Since the first of the year, with the Texas Teacher Retirement System, I’ve been dealing with and resolving as many health issues as I can.
Frankly my husband’s issue was too expensive to use on some of them.
First, I had been dealing with my teeth since the Fall when I was accepted as a patient by the school. One of my crowns was completely rebuilt and it took from January to June to get it fixed. I’m chewing MUCH better now. We’re going to replace a few other crowns as we go, and we’re trying to stop the progression of gum disease. A well known complication of diabetes. The chewing helps the ability of doing food the lap band way.
Second, was sleep. I needed a refresher course. A lot of that is still choices, but at least when I go to bed I sleep all night and feel good the next day.
Third is diabetes control, and I think it is getting better.
Fourth is physical pain which keeps me from working out and sometimes sleep. We discovered I was suffering from statin muscle pain and we’re working on getting me on the right cholesterol medication. Went off it entirely for 6 weeks, pain went away. I’ve been on Zetia (non-statin) for three weeks and no pain. I’m working with Parker Chiropractic School on the joint pain. That is interesting as I make good progress than he has to do a full exam, and I go back a few steps. Right now my good knee is causing problems.
My latest issue is dizziness, this is my second round and I’m waiting on non-expired Nasonix to see if it solves the problem. Should be in today.
Nothing serious but all contributing to my weight.
