Tonight, I’m not really in a”random” or a “musings” frame of mind. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been in a bit of a slump. I didn’t really feel like sharing everything that was going on. The whole point of this blog is to be open and honest about what’s going on in my life. The good stuff, the fat stuff, and the just plain hard stuff.
Almost three weeks ago, I found myself visiting Student Health. I’d been feeling really unwell, and I figured I might as well find out what was wrong. I was examined and tested, and I finally got some answers this week.
Turns out, I’ve got Type 2 Diabetes & PCOS. I was expecting the PCOS. I wasn’t expecting the diabetes.
I’m still processing this diagnosis. Overall, I’m hardly surprised, but it’s still a struggle. My emotions feel like they’re a yo-yo. One minute I’m super focused and totally prepared to face this, and the next, all I can think of are the people I’ve known who’ve lost limbs, and eventually their life to type 2. I find that I go from sad to driven to scared to acceptance to denial to happy surprisingly quickly. Like I said, yo-yo.
So, now I won’t just be writing about trying to lose weight, but I’ll be documenting dealing with this new adventure.
