Mixed news this morning at the dentist’s. The bruxism has gotten to the point where I can’t sleep without my mouth guard. However, as that’s all I have to do I consider it a win. The nerves are still damaged but the dentist is fairly certain that I won’t need a root canal since I’m not in that much pain any more. I can chew food again, oh happy day!

Yeouch!

Well that was scary and ridiculously painful. I can’t help but wonder; if a partial kneecap dislocation feels this bad what the full dislocation would feel like?

I’m actually terrified of knee issues. When I was a child, one of my friend’s kneecaps (yes both kneecaps) just shattered. One minute he was standing there next minute he was on the ground screaming.

Since then, every time I get so much as twinge in my knee I tense up.

As it turns out I’m all good on the diabetes front. My doctor was kind enough to text me and let me know I didn’t need to worry.

I still have metabolic syndrome so I’ll still have to live like a diabetic if I want to avoid diabetes later on.

Next up, I’m hoping I can fix my broken body enough to increase my exercise level.

Wish me luck!

It seems like good news. My fasting blood sugar is within normal limits at 92 mg/dL.

According to Medlineplus the normal range is between 70 and 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL).

Since I’m pretty close to that upper limit there might be a follow up so we can determine what l can add to my routine to bring it closer to the lower up limit.

I never quite know how to respond to people confused about my gender. Usually I’m amused but occasionally I end up being frightened.

There are people who feel its fine to attack me if they mistake my gender. Luckily that situation is rare but I find my self flinching everytime. You never get any warning either.
