The Year Twenty Sixteen - Year of the Sciatica / by Rollie Agado

As we ease into the last week of January, 2016...  I've been thinking a lot about what direction to take with the blog this year.  I had a number of unexpected things occur to me last year and that kinda curbed my desire to sit down and write personal stuff in a public forum.

I'm filled with an incredible urge to just share thoughts on all kinds of silly shit so I think things are about to get a little weird on this blog.

The biggest thing going with me these days is some trouble I'm having with Sciatica.  A nerve disruption that is sending pain down my right leg into my right foot - causing discomfort and the sensation of it being numb. 

I haven't been able to pin point the cause of this... outside of just being a fat ass - but I made it a point to go see a doctor.  He got me in touch with a Physical Therapist whom I'm paying $50 per visit to stretch me and rub me down for about a month.

The treatments are working and I have a number of fatty yoga exercises I affectionally call ROGA - that I perform daily.  

In addition to that, I've been eating better in preparation of receiving word that I'm probably diabetic.   Also not a shocker, given that I kinda have some family history with it and I'm a fatty.  Lab results came back and they got posted to my "personal portal" page... but I haven't heard back from my doctor.   I'm not sure what to make of this tho'.  Part of me thinks, that if I was diabetic - they would have called and been like - HEY you need to come in and learn how to inject yourself with insulin and shit.

Another part of me thinks - that one blood test - does not make one a diabetic.  Maybe they're coach me up and ask me to do another blood test or two before we go down that path...  

In the event I do get word I have diabetes - 3 or so weeks after doing lab tests, I suspect I may yell at my doctor and embarrass my lovely fiance who has been so incredibly supportive of all this crap.

So yeah... more soon.
