Entry Number 23

There maybe some good news for me on the horizon. I will be undergoing a pain management treatment in a couple of weeks, and if it works, my lower back and leg pain could be gone.

This will allow me to exercise a little more, and should coincide with our local pool opening for summer as well.  So if I can lose a little more weight that will help bring down my BG levels.

But most of all, reducing my pain, thus reducing some of my stress, will also help my BG levels as it is a known fact that stress can impact on your levels.

I will be off to see the Prof in a couple of weeks as well, and I am sure my three monthly test will most likely show a higher level than last time.  I know he won't be pleased, but I will plead my case and see if we can avoid going on insulin for just a little while longer, hoping that getting back into the pool and having less pain will work their magic.

Walking out of the pain specialist yesterday I felt so much lighter, so here is the lovely rising full moon, lets hope I can keep in the lightness of being frame of mind for the rest of this week at least.

Thanks for popping by xxx


  1. Wobbly dances of joy from here. I have heard such good reports of pain management clinics. Intractable pain reduced to manageable levels. Everything crossed for you (except the bits I need to stay upright).

    1. Thank you EC, and please, keep upright - lol. I did a bit of research (at 3 am when I couldn't sleep) and it appears that as a last resort they can fuse the SI joint and that will give me 100% guarantee of no pain, but then of course it causes other issues. He is the first doctor to agree with me that the issue is my SI joints not the bulging disc at L4/L5 but he is going to zap that as well I believe. Wobbly dances of joy here too. xxx

  2. I am delighted to see the beautiful golden moon again. I'd hoped that the pain doctor may have lifted your spirits somewhat. It's good that the pool will be open again soon too. It would be hoping for too much if this same doctor could give me some hope but doubt that it's possible after what Dr G said a few years back. Fusing is an option but I think the worst that can happen is you have a stiffness in your back so not so flexible. Thing is how flexible are you right now? Just sending you my love and the hope that there truly is some light at the end of that seemingly endless tunnel. xxx
