This morning my Dr. came for a visit, one I could do without.

A few years after my diagnosis with Primary Progressive MS I was also diagnosed with high blood pressure and type II diabetes.

I am probably one of the only ones left with an MD who does house calls which is great. She showed up this morning with the results from my latest blood work, do the exercises, watch the salt, lose the weight, blah blah blah.

I can't fricken walk, my exercise consists of going to the washroom, using the microwave, making a coffee oh and occasionally lifting some 2 pound weights which are incredibly heavy. Normally I'll have two yogurts in the morning and one bottle of Glucerna in the afternoon. I have a coffee in the morning a glass of cranberry juice and eat a normal dinner when my spouse returns from work.

What do I cut out now?

Sometimes don't you just feel like calling it quits or come on give me a break enough already!

I am a patient guy who is becoming very impatient with all of this crap

I hear you Michael! I think I gain weight by breathing the air! Have you consulted a dietician about your diet. Sometimes it's not what we eat, but when and how. It's often better to eat small meals 3 or 4 times a day, rather than starve yourself during the day and eat a big meal in the evening.

And yep, sometimes I do feel like calling it quits...but I live in hope that tomorrow will be better.

Hang in there my friend, you'll get over this bump in the road.

Thank you so much for your comments and suggestions. I remember seeing a dietitian years ago when I was first diagnosed yet it's been quite some time and as you know this is also a progressive disease so I will take your advice. Not next week since we're away yet upon our return I will contact a dietitian review what I'm doing get a meter "one that I can handle" and take the control.
I was just feeling down and out it seems like some days are definitely harder than others.
Much appreciated
