Thanks to Barb for inquiring as to my whereabouts and well-being. I am okay, just distracted from blogging recently as I make a modest attempt at writing down my life story in more conventional ways. Frankly, I am easily distracted from most everything so it would not surprise me if it’s another few months before I post.
This week I learned, officially, that my HIV meds have had the long-term effect of making me diabetic. (No one expected us to live this long so the clinical trials are obviously still being played out in survivors’ bodies.) This is something that has been on the horizon for awhile, as tests have progressively indicated, but it’s still another kick. I have enough trouble eating, let alone eating well, so a combination of slightly moderated diet and yet another new pill twice a day is being added to my routine. Oh, and those darn blood samples for the glucose meter.
Optimistically, I am planning a rail-bus tour of the Atlantic provinces, perhaps as soon as next month or June.
