Mood: don't ask
Now Playing: Day 818-The Final Road To Survival
What most don't understand about the ramifications of stress is the consequences it can leave on a fragile body. Ask my insides just what stress can do after getting only four hours of sleep from family causing more unnecessary stress then having sugar levels spike within a short time. We let things go until my sugar readings kept getting higher into the 170's along with feeling dizzy and the sweats. My doctors have already warned me on numerous occasions to stay away from any stress because it can unravel the hard work they are doing to keep me out of trouble. I guess it takes having just one organ act up to actual heed the warnings. Eric also got a first hand look today at what stress can do to a body that is already fighting enough battles.
After a sleepless-night, long afternoon getting checked out and finally having doctors sit down not "asking" but telling me "The stress will have to stop and those causing stress will need to stay out of your life before the stress ends up becoming your demise," we came home a heck of a lot smarter and wiser. Eric of course had a few other family battles to attend while I layed down on the couch to finally rest. Needless to say I am B E A T! I slept until 11:45pm and here I am right back up again. Instead of only checking my blood sugar once a day I will now need to check it three times a day. My doctors are always concerned when my body throws out of no where a new symptom. Prior medical records show a minimum warning when one of my organs stop working. I need my pancreas in order to survive so I take this "NO stress" warning EXTREMELY seriously. Eric has grown tired of the relentless stress and rightfully so which has him also taking the necessary means to make it stop once and for all.
Maybe change in my life is inevitable and in order to change my outlook I need to change my scenery. Nevada might be coming sooner than later because a person's body can only handle so much stress and so far things in this city have yet to change nor the people who live here.
