Oh, and there we were all in one place, a generation lost in space with no time left to start again.
So come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack Flash sat on a candlestick 'cause fire is the devil's only friend.
Oh, and as I watched him on the stage my hands were clenched in fists of rage.
No angel born in Hell could break that Satan's spell.
And as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite,
I saw Satan laughing with delight, the day the music died.

I Wanna Be Sedated

Well, we're approaching the first week on Glucophage. At my last exam my level of insulin was high and the dcotor felt I have Metabolic syndrom, AKA insulin resistance. I'm not up to full dose yet, but I'm feeling the effects. I'm much more tired that before. The other day I felt the "sugar crash." I haven't experienced that for a long time.

Hopefully with this treatement I'll be able to lose the weight. I walk about 6 to 10 miles a day at work (I used to wear a pedomoeter) which should be enough to keep trim, but I'm gaining weight (just a little every year, it adds up). I'm over 300lbs right now. I work like a mad man in the yard. Not as much as I used to, but I can still sling wood and dirt better and faster than younger kids (I know this by helping my neighbor, and he hires kids to help).

This weekend we go to twice daily doses. In another two weeks I'll be up to full dose.
