On the side of a hill in the deep forest green, tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,
blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves washes the grave with silvery tears,
a soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions, generals order their soldiers to kill
and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten

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.
