So I went to the doctors this week to get results from a bunch of blood work I had done a week ago.
My blood sugar is "high-normal." It's been that way for years. I just keep it in my mind and walk along a fine line… I love bread… I hate salads… It's hard to stay on the line so I stumble from one side to another but I generally try to stay reasonably close to the line. Nothing's changed there.
He explains the rest of the results to me. Everything else is normal, there is nothing wrong with me.
I was hoping that the blood work would have explained the lack of energy that I've had for the last little while. It doesn't
"Do you have any questions?" he asks.
I explain to him that I'm tired OFTEN. That I come home after work and I fall asleep on the sofa. I explain how I haven't been going to the gym because I just don't have the energy. I explain how I don't think that I'm depressed because things are going reasonably well in my life. Work is good. I have good friends, etc. etc. etc. So clearly I believe that something is horribly wrong with me. There must be something that is causing this lack of energy.
I continue speaking for 5 minutes.
He quietly looks at me and says "How old are you now? 45. Ya. That starts to happen at that age."
I now hate my doctor.
