20. I don't know why, but I'm guessing sugar bcause I had a spike two pysicals ago ...

my primary physician told me my sugar was no longer "high normal" but was into "diabetic". She asked my if I would take a prescription and I told her I'd try modifying my diet first. At my next physical I was back to high normal.

I am getting older (aren't we all?) and it felt like what I was told sugar shock felt like felt like. There's quite a history of diabetes in my family - as a child in the fifties I remember my great grandmother using an old fashioned glass syringe to take insulin.

I'm waiting for my physical later this month to discuss it with my doctor.

I hate making scenes and I made the biggest one I ever made and I just wanted to slink away. Bad move, as I've been told by several nurses and PA at my pre-op appointment and at the morning of my surgery when I was asked if had fallen down recently. If there's a next incident I will wait for EMS.

Bullet-proof, iron clad and rocked ribbed until the cancer showed up five years ago, its been hard to admit my years have significance and have caught up to me. I still feel great and feel only 35 but I am very close to double that.

Now if I could only shake this little bout of cancer .....
