Back to the Grind

August 28th, 2022 at 07:25 pm

It's back to the grind tomorrow. I took off all a last week and enjoyed spending time with my family. My sister stayed the night with me Thursday, then flew back home Friday morning. We enjoyed low-key family time, talking, having lunch, watching movies. It was so relaxing. 

I had a terrifying experience on the spillway Monday night coming home. There was a tanker trucker that came up behind me, no headlights, with hazard lights flashing. I didn't know why his hazard lights were on. Had he lost his brakes? He was so close that I got over as I was scared that he was going to run into me. Then he started coming into my lane & blaring his horn. It was terrifying. He had plenty of time to get over before he was on my tail, which was why I moved over. I really should have called the state troopers. He had no business driving so haphazardly without headlights at night on a dangerous over-water bridge. I was in tears by the time I got home, but so thankful that there was no accident. My heart felt like it was going to come out of my chest during the incident.

In better news, after 3 weeks of diet changes, exercising, and weekly Ozempic injections my blood sugar is running consistently within range. Three weeks ago no matter what I ate my glucose was high. I was worrying that I would never get it under controls. I get my labs again in 3 weeks so my doctor can make sure there are no advisers effects from the Ozempic.

    What a terrible experience! Glad you made it home OK. Good news on your blood sugar as well, I hope the medication and lifestyle changes continue to work for you.

    How bizarre! Maybe his headlights weren't working, and that's why he had the hazard lights on? But why honk at you? Whatever he was trying to communicate, it wasn't clear! Scary.

    I've been on Ozempic for a year now, and it has done wonders for my blood sugar. I check every morning, and it sits around 88-95, fasting. I am so glad you are experiencing the benefits! So sorry to hear about the driving experience!! Very scary!
