Starting Back Up

Well I’ve decided that now is a good time to try and start this back up.  I’ve had a few life changes recently and I really need some place to just let it out!

We’ll start with what happened today.  I found out that I have diabetes.  I was then biraged with about a million pieces of information about diabetes.  Most of which kinda flew right by me as I was still on the part where I said to my self…I have what now?  I’m more than slightly confused as to what’s going on.  I’m just glad I had Lee there to help retain some of that information.  This is one of a few times where I have felt completely helpless.  I felt like I wasn’t even in the room, I was the camera man in my own life watching this happen.  This wasn’t happening to me this was happening to some other guy.  If only that were true.  So starting now my life is different.  I have to prick my finger once a day to see what my blood sugar is doing.  I can’t eat the foods that once comforted me when I felt anxious, or depressed, or stressed out.  I have to actually get off my fat ass and lose some weight and exercise.  I need to learn to eat better.  My head is reeling from all of this still.  Just trying to take it all in has been more than enough excitement for one day…I still haven’t gone to the gym yet…all I want to do is go to bed!

On a more pleasant note Lee and I have taken over leadership of the worship team in Auburn.  Yes that means driving an extra 25 minutes to church each week but I think it’s well worth it 🙂  So far it’s been a blast.  We were worried that people out there  wouldn’t be receptive to us but they seem relieved and glad to have us out there.  It’s kind of weird at the same time though.  Most of the team is older than us.  The team is also very small so we’re going to go on an aggressive campaign very shortly to recruit some more members.  By the way if you happen to know any musicians who are generally free Sunday mornings send them my way 🙂

Well Lee is almost home which means it’s almost time to hit the gym.  I hope to be more active in the blog-o-sphere in the future.

    I’m so sorry to hear you got that news about your health. Can’t imagine having to deal with that. Keep blogging!

    Chris: now that it has been a month since your diagnosis, you are now on your way to getting rid of the diabetes, which in your case is temporary. Once you reach the weiht threshhold below which you will no longer have the problem, you will no longer need meds or the finger prick. Keep up the good work!
