Blood



My fatigue is so high that I hardly have the energy to write this. I have been trying for the past two months to get my blood sugars down from 33.3 mmol down to at least 4-10 mmol. Aside from my diabetes being uncontrolled I am trying to keep my pemphigus (autoimmune disease) from flaring up. The dermatologist just reduced the prednisone from 25mg to 20mg daily. While looking after these two problems I'm having my legs wrapped from the ankle to knee because of chronic edema due to venous insufficiency. A pemphigus blister that broke developed cellulitis which put me on antibiotics for 10 days and one week after those med's my dentist put me on another 10 days of antibiotics before he pulls a molar. To put the icing on the cake I developed walking pneumonia which my doctor couldn't treat because of having had so many days of antibiotics!! This is exhausting and I sure wish I'd get better soon.
