January 26, 2014 - So, about a month ago, I felt a bit under the weather. Overwhelming exhaustion, nausea, couldn't walk more than a few feet without the threat of falling out. It was two days after Christmas, so I didn't have to drive to school or anything, but I still felt I had to check myself out. So I, my mom, and my grandmother went to the hospital to get some tests done.
So, it's been a month almost to the day that I have had to deal with Type 2 Diabetes. I'm 21 years old. My mom, who I don't live with, was diagnosed with it just four months ago.
Not asking for pity. I think I just wanted to get that out. I've told absolutely no one. No other relatives know, and you have no idea how much it takes to keep my grandmother from blabbing to her church.
I'm saying this because for the next few months, you may notice my appearance on the internet thinning. For a year, I've tried to consistently post a chapter of some story every single month. I try to work on my stories, but I still seem to be tired as all hell. I come back from school, sleep, take my daily doses of that healthy food crap, stab myself with a needle, take a pill, sleep, repeat.
There is a slight chance of beating it. Eating healthy (blech), and I've been keeping to a good regimen so far. I have no doubt that I will get over it, or, at the very least, live with it comfortably.
If anything, pray for me. Not that whole disease thing, but the fact that I'm comfortable enough to talk to you guys rather than tell my best friends.
Though, the only reason I'm not telling them at this point is because of the devastatingly fast weight loss, and I want to surprise them.
Still. Good to get it off my chest. Cherish your life, people! Eat as much as you can before the bad people take it away! Nothing but Cheerios and Sprite Zero from here on out!
