UPDATE: Troy's Health & Platform Party

IT'S OFFICIAL: I'm Diabetic

As most of you know, I have been in the process of discovering that I may have Diabetes.

 

This week it became official. I am diabetic. Lovely.

 

I had been holding off any concerns or worries until I knew for sure, and making all of the changes necessary to accommodate the worst-case scenario, but the emotional punch of it is only just hitting me.

 

All of this was happening while my Dad was enduring 11 surgeries over a two week period of time to save his legs and his life. The enormity of what diabetes is has hit me for the first time in my life. I really had no idea how serious this disease is. (by the way, Dad is in a nursing home recovering and doing VERY well!)

 

Based on my scary A1C results (a more specific test for diagnosing Diabetes), I was referred to an endocrinologist who is the one who broke the news to me and told me that my results indicated life-threatening conditions. What we don't know yet is whether I have Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes. While we await the results of those tests, I was to report my home glucose tests. I had been waiting for my home glucose test kit to arrive in the mail, as soon as I received it, I did my home tests and reported my numbers to the doctor. 

 

Apparently, they are bad.

 

If any of you know what these numbers mean, I am getting between 250 and 400+. The healthy range is around 75.

 

My doctor called me immediately and talked me through the reality of what I am now going to deal with.

 

I am now required to take insulin. I started today.

 

If I turn out to be Type 2 Diabetes, this will be just a temporary means of returning me to safety. If I have Type 1 Diabetes it means my immune system is turning on my pancreas and I will be required for the rest of my life to inject insulin. I'm waiting to find out where I go from here.

 

PLATFORM PARTY RESCHEDULE

 

I was all set this week for finalizing preparations for the Platform Party and I am so excited for it (I love these!), but as the week and then today wore on, and after getting a shit ton of backlog channeling done on top of the scheduled appointments, the reality of my situation began to really hit me and my fried brain... I just need to chill for a bit and catch up with myself on this. It's not the end of the world at all, but I just need to pause for a second to wrap my head around it.

 

I've moved the Platform Party to next Friday just so I can catch my breath and finish the bulk of the Platforms after a break from channeling for a day or so, then we can have a great time together at the Party!

 

THE GOOD NEWS is that we caught this in time. I should be just fine. I think. I'm already well ahead of the challenges with my vegan diet and some additional changes now, plus my increase in exercise, so if I require insulin then I require insulin. I'll be fine. When you catch Diabetes in time, it mostly becomes an inconvenience, not a death sentence.

 

So there's that.

 

Thank you for your understanding! I will see you next Friday for sure. 

 

And no pity for me! Just your patience and love is fine. I'm on top of this and learning from it.

 

Love, Troy

 

UPDATE MAY 7: My doctor messaged me to say that while the final results are still pending, based on initial test results being returned, it is looking more like Type 2. So... crossing fingers. So far, with the medication and my focus on diet and exercise, my numbers are lower and lower based on my home glucose tests. I got my average down below 300 today, which is still in the danger zone, but better than the high 300's and low 400's that I started with. So I'm hanging in there and making progress! 

 

UPDATE MAY 18: It's pretty much concluded that I have Type 2, which means I can turn this around and even cure the problem. I also have great news. I have finally begun to get glucose readings in the safe zone! My numbers are going down quickly so that I'm getting readings like 111 and 133. I still need to get it closer to consistent between 80 - 130 and if I can keep it there, I am safe and on track to reversing this.

Take care of yourself, working on an ambulance, i can tell you that a blood sugar over 400 is considered an advanced life support call (paramedic). So it can be serious. The main thing i notice on calls, is when blood sugar is stabilized, the patient feels so much better. So heres hoping you start feeling good when you get the sugar stabilized.

So glad to know your Dad is recovering well and that you have a handle on your situation and therefore a potential method of dealing with it. I'm glad you rescheduled and will take some time for yourself. Hugs and love to you, @Troy

Have a nice rest @Troy. I trust you'll get through this bump.

Just a question. Are you canceling the Ask M as well?

Thanks for letting us know. I do empathize with you as I had a blood sugar test a week ago and it was 114. That is considered prediabetic. So I understand trying to bring that number down.

Holy shit those numbers, Troy!! I just want to give your body a repeated high five for keeping you fully functioning on those numbers. Honestly, that physical manifestation of your beautiful Personality and Essence deserves an award, so please, give your amazing body a great big hug of gratitude, cause it deserves it more than ever. And cheers to your progress!  🍾 🍾 🍾

Off to get my diabetes screening for my eyes. I'll report results asap. 

 

It is amazing to me that I've been living with this condition for so long without knowing it and thinking my "off days" of fogginess, fatigue, and forgetfulness were just my imagination and excuses. All that tingling in my body was just my high energy burning through me, I thought! LOL It turns out I was on the brink of death.

 

I guess with my job this one foot in the grave thing is an asset.

@Troy I'm thinking that two feet on the ground will make your job a lot more fun and fruitful.  I am so happy you are choosing to heal. Your body of work here on TLE is spectacular and you've been doing this 'with one foot in the grave!' One can only imagine what a healthy Troy will call forth. More than anything, what I have learned through you and Michael is that choice is so much more than I previously understood, especially about being present and Manifesting Essence here and now. I just want to say how much I am appreciating you.

Oh No!  That would be a sucker punch for me too, Troy.  Those symptoms you were talking about, geeze, maybe I need to get tested.  :-/

 

Wishing everything goes really well for you, and that you and your docs can get everything under control.  OXOX
