Medical, Shmedical.

I caught up with the sleep doctor yesterday. He suggested I upgrade to a new mask and basically confirmed what the sleep tech told me, which is that I've moved up a couple of clicks in severity. So I'll sort this all out in the next week or two and see him again at the end of the year.

Last time I saw my sleep specialist, he did kind of point out that I'm 100% on track for diabetes. Given that I fit into every risk category it was no surprise really, but having it spelled out and confirmed by a proper medical person gave me a bit of a jolt.

Today my GP came by and I mentioned this to her and asked what she thought, and she agreed.

It's very much a diet thing, and I am in between a rock and a hard place.

But of course given my Crohn's is not nearly as bad as it has been I could probably do better. One does get into habits with food, and I'm now so out of the habit of healthy eating that I just don't think of putting healthier things in my mouth when I'm hungry.

This is going to drive 10B mad. Especially when I insist we stock up on the things I ought to be eating and they turn to compost in the fridge.

*looks sheepish*

I can feel yesterday starting to catch up with me. I have to go out again tomorrow so fingers crossed I don't crash too badly.

Someone else who uses the fridge to create compost!

I hear you on the diet thing too.

Fingers crossed that you don't crash too badly, and

No thanks. We don't need more cookbooks.

ooops - somewhere between reading the post and answering, my mind switched over to talking to Jasmine_Tea. :-) We've been talking about cooking - she just made a coca cola cake! (Try saying that lots of times quickly - I could barely type it!)
