Happy thoughts

I didn't think I was going to be able to write this today. Although I've had a couple of wonderful days with my hubby, and I'm so relaxed, I just wasn't feeling it after an appointment with my diabetic nurse. I've put this appointment off for so long, because I knew what was going to be said.........

And I was right. I already take Metformin, although I don't know what that actually does!? I found out today it doesn't lower your sugars, so why give it to me??? I shall be looking it up online later to see what benefit it holds for diabetics. Today I have been told that I now require medication to lower my sugar levels and the next step is injections. I don't want this! I had to do that through my last pregnancy, not pleasant. 

This has left me a little upset. You see, I am really trying to lower my weight and watch my diet!! I'm not perfect, and I admitted that. I also admitted, I know I am doing something wrong, I just don't know what.  You would think I would be offered help, or even a pamphlet on what I should be doing. Nope, nothing. I guess the NHS can't afford to help me now and would rather spend a fortune when I get really sick through diabetes?!

Any way, my day did improve and here are my.....

1. My eldest had his school parent teacher evening. I am incredibly proud of how well he is doing, and with a little extra planning and organisation he could really reach the stars! We had a chance to explain our home situation, and all the teachers were very understanding. Offering him places within school that he can use to study when he can't at home.

2. My 6.5lb loss this week. OH EM GEE! I was so shocked when I got on the scales. After what the nurse said I hope I can keep it up!

3. Spending quality time with the Mr. I normally hate that term 'quality time' but I do understand what it means. Today and yesterday were my hubby's days off, and it was glorious! Yesterday we got to go out for dinner. I got to put make up on and wear something nice, without fear of it being dribbled on! 

So that's my reasons this week. The linky is back with mummy from the heart this week so why not click around and see what makes us all happy.
