Last night I dreamed I was asked to do a last minute presentation at a library convention. It was about Lilly Sombodyor another ( i don’t remember her last name) who was involved with a number of surrealist writers and a Shakespearean actor. I was doing all kinds of interesting last minute research. It was until about 10 minutes after I woke up that I realized that my brain had completely made up this person
I went to a class for a condition I have had for 14 years. I expected to be bored, but I felt validated instead. The science word was used . so here is what I learned
1) Genetics. yup, that’s the cause. excess fat- that’s from the body not knowing how to deal with glucose. Validation. It is what I have read , what the newer research shows,but what people want to argue with me about.
2) once there is a diagnosis – diet and exercise alone won’t work. Your pancreas is tired- medicine is there to help. Some people need more medications than others- it is body chemistry. But this is why the lowering of number for diagnosis for prediabetes – it is to actually help you stay off medication longer. This validated my experience with food and gave me some information.
3) heat attacks, high blood pressure, high blood sugar etc, are now all grouped together known as metabolic syndrome
just sharing with the class
