I want to say that I'm truly an optomist. I want to believe that good things come to those who wait (blah, blah, blah) and that things aren't about luck, fate, or anything else. Things are what they are randomly. I know, I know... believe me I know what some of you think and believe, and I truly hope that those thoughts and beliefs are of comfort to you. I'm here to tell you though, that some of us in this world just can't win. We're not losers, we're not lucky, we're not fortunate or unfortunate. it's all relative to what comparison one happens to be making. Like you could say I'm lucky if you compare my life to those less fortunate, (again, blah, blah, blah)... but none of that stuff makes it easy does it? Sometimes you have to hold on to whatever you can hold on to and ride it out... it being life, if life can be compared to a rollercoaster ride... oh and it can. How come life doesn't come with an emergency card of instructions (with easy to comprehend diagrams) and a barf bag, like those you can find on air planes? Why do some people walk through life unphased while others constanty get, well, phased? All of this is rhetorical, of course. I'm not expecting an answer or any kind of proselytism thrown my way. I'd like to think I'm optomistic about what could be and if I can enjoy the process of making life more like a bowl of jelly beans, as opposed to a bowl of cherries. Cherries are cherries, but jelly beans well, you can spit out the ones you don't like, pick out your favorites, admire the smooth and shiny colors and such. Back to work tomorrow. Then my brain will be numb to my own reality once again...

On another playing field, related or not, "Life is round, like an orange."

Thanks for the compliment, I think. Gee... I said it was a rant... rants are similar to dissertations... you know... long. LOL I highly recommend you finish it though... take a break ot two... get a drink of water... or perhaps a twinkie.

Or jelly bean? I highly recommend Bertie Botts (althoughI confess I have no clue or inclination to learn how to spell her made up name.)

OMG... please tell me I haven't scared someone else away... I have this other curse... besides reality... sometimes when I get excited and chatty... I clear rooms or cause others to remain silent. Please don't go KSP494... I guess I should have stuck to life is round like an orange and left it at that.

Back to the overall point, for those of you brave enough to read it. Did I give the sense (in a sense) that things could be better, that I don't want to offend anyone who's life is worse, and I'm not really saying that mine is hell? Did you get that life is what it is to one's own perception and that the fun-o-meter of life, the bowl-of-cherries-a-thon, and or the barf-bag-located-in-the seat-pocket-in-front-of-you is variable? DO YOU FEEL ME? WELL DO YA PUNK(S)... er uh punkette(s)?

Maybe if we just eat the orange and cherry flavored jelly beans... life will be easier. But it would also suck because I don't like cherry and orange jelly beans. Maybe they should make "Red Bull", "Whiskey", and "Dew" flavored jelly beans and we could just eat those instead.

I seem to have a different curse. Seems that no matter what shift I'm on, it gets busy. Have a ton of young officers working here that are bored about half the time.....but as soon as I come to work everything goes to hell in a handbasket.

Okay, I'm done with my rant!

Back when I drank....I used whiskey alot when I was sick. After the 8th or 9th shot, I was still sick, but either didn't realize it or didn't care!

So.... My blood sugar is obviously low.  I haven't eaten since dinner last night, I haven't even finished my cup of coffee from this morning and it's lunch.  I have my troop drive me home so I can eat lunch (I'm FTOing it) and my speech is slurring ever so slightly.  I run in to test my sugar before I eat as I have to keep track of it on my new gizmo I got from the doctor.  However, the gizmo gives me an error message (after readjusting, checking batteries, using new test strip and everything I can do to trouble shoot it.)


In desperation, I call the company (per instructions in the hand-dandy booklet that came with my handy-dandy blood glucose monitoring system).  Mind you now... I already know my sugar was low.  DUH... BUT, to prove this obvious hypoglycemic condition to el doctor, I must test myself when the condition occurs and of course, el gusto es mio, cuz GEE it's my favorite thing to do... I dream about how much fun it is to test my sugar.  Righhhht.


BTW hypoglycemia can be aggravated by hypothyroidism or even caused by it... not that I'm an endocrinologist or anything, but I do know my way around my own medical conditions.  In fact, and most likely just to placate me, my endocrinologist gave me the flipping gizmo, to test myself (most likely to avoid having to make any real decision on his own, thus prolonging my pain and suffering from slurred speech, fatigue, brain fog, and ah yes LOW BLOOD SUGAR... but let's not get over excited like these conditions could be an officer safety issue or anything... and what does my doctor care?  Why should he?  It's not liek he's my doctor or anything... oh WAIT.  Yes, my doctor is my doctor. )


I get some loud call center with back ground noise as my anxiety grows, as I only get a 30 minute break to eat and I need to eat and get back to normal befor hitting the road again.  ALL I wanted to know was how to reset the meter so I could test my blood an eat, but OH NO... you know that ain't happening.  The meter is broken, and evidently my doctor gave it to me that way (later discovered during my enlightening chat with the hearing impaired call center woman.)


"What's your name?  How do you spell that.  P or T?  Like a Tiger?  A tiger? A tiger? Ohhh, Ok.  Maggie?"  YES.  "What's your address?  Three?  3? 3? 7?  Did you say 7?"  YES! ((Transient thoughts in my head running concurrent with the line of questioning: 'Buehler?  Buehler? ...........Is this the help line or have I called the school for the deaf?  Should I be signing my "bad word that starts with F and ends with ing" answer into my phone or something?))


In the end, I broke down and started eating a bowl of cereal, toast, and mountain dew... while carrying on a convo with the ever so helpful help line.  I was laughing at the irony.  If your sugar is low then you can't think straight and you're trying to answer questions and follow instructions and stay calm, when your condition causes confusion, anxiety, irritability, etc.  Anyway, WHATEVER .  I'm getting a new machine, but it'll probably get sent to Pepsi Corporation headquarters or Life Cereal... or who ever makes my raisin toast for all I know. LOL  (Kidding... I wasn't that bad off... ahhh life... hold on and enjoy the ride.) Today life is like ugly fruit.

WTF?! I thought I had something in my eye, or a probelm due to my allergies, but now it's looking like pink eye.  I sooooo wash my hands.  Is it true like the movie says that you get pink eye form fecal matter???  OMG how'd I get crap in my eye?!!  WHat if it's not even my own poop?  OMG.  I am so freaking out.  I've been doing the FTO thing and I haven't been able to drive my slick top, so we've been taking whatever runs basciall, and of course the cars are not clean like mine, and as the FTO I have to sit in the icky chair... dang!  WHEN WILL IT GET BETTER???????????
