Friends0

I had two mates call over tonight we had beer and Pizza, well two of us had beer the third is diabetic as well and is on AFD. He’s a tad further along than me. It was a great night, good company, good friends. But the support of my friends, family on line and and off is wonderful and greatly appreciated it helps emotionally to have that support there. But what lies ahead scares the bejesues out of me.

One friend told me that the tale is getting out, I trust my friends they’ll act well that’s what friends do, it’s that damn male refusal of admitting of weakness that stops me from doing it myself. So I thank my friends for doing what I find hard.

Appetite

I’ve lost weight I’m down to 93kg the lowest I’ve been in years. Its been observed as well, I topped out at 108kg and generally averaged about 106kg when I was diagnosed with diabetes I got down to 94kg with alot of effort. Currently I have no appetite hence the pub meals if I buy them I eat even then I don’t always finish them. Wednesday¬† night I went to my Sisters for dinner and I slept on the couch I didn’t eat until the next night but I wasn’t hungry even then.

Today was a no go I slept till 10 after being up early, had lunch at the Crown came home slept again was up for a bit slept again and now I’m up for a bit. We’ll see how it goes.

Visit

One of my best friends called in, it’d been a few days since I’d told him. Time to adjust understandable and accepted. It was nice to enjoy a few beers with him and be open about my condition.

Weeekend Away

Well that went well. It was a good weekend away, I explained my condition and symptoms to my parents and we agreed to the outcome. And, it’s a big and I’ve given the parent’s access to the blog something I said I wouldn’t do.

Informed

Well the family are now informed , I told little sister on Monday. I went to tell big sister the other night but they had visitors, so I went over there this afternoon and told her. Of the family she was the one who I worried would tumble to my condition and once I told her she went it’s obvious. She works with ABI and worked with the¬† elderly and has experience with Parkinson’s and she said what she’d noticed the covering of the trembling hand, the pain, the gait change (well shoe wear), the sweating. I tick almost all the symptom boxes for Parkinson’s (unfortunately).

This weekend I’m off to Eildon with the parents, and I’m going to be grilled they’ve had a week to adjust to the news. Above all I know have my family’s love and support, and as well the support of my friends online

Outed

I made the decision last night, I would tell. So this morning I told Dad and he took it hard, then I told Mum who also felt the hit. I’m sorry to burden them with the news but they needed to know what was going on as something obviously was.

EDIT

I’m sorry I know it’s not my fault but really it’s on my shoulders it is my crown of thorns, my friends online have helped.

Oops

I gave the family (well my older sister and husband) a scare today. I didn’t charge my phone over night so I put it on charge in the morning and left it in the bedroom and didn’t hear it and as I normally always have my phone with me they thought the worst. So my sister came over, I gave her a wine and it’s all OK. She was worried I’d had a fall, falls don’t worry me I can break fall easily I’ve even realised that’s what I need to do mid fall, that and I’m going back to Aikido training.

But it points out they know I’m not well.
