My liver function/enzymes were actually —NORMAL—!!! For about the last 4-6 years they've been very high/elevated, and found out I have NAFLD.
My endocrinologist told me that I'm insulin resistant, and that my body is responding to my endogenous insulin by ~⅕ the normal, so that means my pancreas is producing 5x the normal amount of insulin.
I've GOT to get serious about weight loss (275 lb, almost back to my heaviest of 283 lb). This weight has to go.
Oh yeah, and was prescribed Vascepa for high triglycerides, which when they come down, my low HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) should come up to the normal level.
Oh, and I ACTUALLY HAVE A J-O-B NOW! I start out as a customer service associate at Walgreens, but the manager said I should be working in the pharmacy as a tech by November. I've already applied for my pharmacy lisence.
I have to be an apprentice for 6 months before I become a 'real' pharmacy technician. I can use that time to study for the PTCB and go ahead and take it after my apprenticeship and become a certified pharmacy technician!
I also just might have a job at Walgreens! At first I have to start as a customer service associate, but the manager said that I should be in the pharmacy tech position by November! Pretty excited about it honestly.
We're here for you, mik! Stay strong. Better times ahead.
You always have us my friend ❤
Hope the interview goes well.
I believe in you ❤️
wishing you success and the perseverance to keep trying until you've secured one
I bet you rock any hair color, “crazy” colors and “normal” colors! I wish you very good luck with the job interview 👍👍👍
I've got pink hair right now, it would be a bummer to dye it normal... Hope the interview goes well.
So many of us...
...like a rainbow or a squall bringing rain, emotions brush across the mindscape. May you enjoy the rays of euphoria.
Thanks Love! That was beautiful. Thanks everyone for the hugs too.
I've watched plenty of Among Us on Twitch but don't have the guts to play it. I'd be terrible!
cool connection w your brother.
Yeah you can! ☺️
I'm on the path of weight loss, too. We got this!
I hope things start to look up for you soon
would it help if you read something really really really boring?
