My blood

So, I went to see the Doctor the other day. I have this rash thing on my right arm. I have no idea what it is, it’s like little lumps. For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to put wart medicine on the lumps. That turned out to be a bad idea since, first of all they were not warts and I seemed to have infected it since they started to spread. It started with five little lumps, once I got to around 13 I started thinking to myself that maybe I should go see a medicine man. So I did, the Doc gave me a steroid cream and told me that if they didn’t go away within two weeks he would send me to a dermatologist. He also said that since I was there I should get some blood work done because at my age I should have blood tests done at least once every two years. I wasn’t crazy about the idea but I agreed.

Two days later the nurse called me and said I needed to come back because they wanted to run additional tests…….it’s not a good sign when they call you for more blood, is it?

Anyway, they said something about sugar being high and they started asking questions about diabetes in the family (which I don’t think we have) and diet and asking if I eat healthy. What the hell do my arm lump things have to do with diabetes?

Walk in with a couple of warts, walk out with diabetes? Biiiitttttcccchhhhh pleeeease!

I love that SNL skit and the Geely one.

So I went back, they took more blood and ran more tests, all is good no diabetes for me! Over the last week I had been eating very healthy and I was also working out so now I can go back to sitting on my ass with a big bowl of Ice Cream, cookies and cream is my fave!

I’m also happy to report that the lumps are going down to. I wonder what would happen if I rub the cream on my bald spot?

Dan you baked potato head! Uncle Curly has the diabetes and so does grandma.

Those things on your arm look like the pig virus.

If you rub it on your head and end up back in the doctors they'll presumably want to do a brain scan.

Glad you can go back to your unhealthy ways. C&C is my favorite too. Did you know the C&C milkshake from Baskin Robbins has like 200 grams of fat? Woohoo.

P.S. I still don't have my Mr. CDD sucker.

Hey, I thought of you the other day when I got this catalog in the mail that was selling almost every "as seen on TV" item known to man and they had this hair stuff that you sprayed on your hair or bald spots and this "magic hair" would grow, kind of like those magic rocks I had as a kid. And it lasted until the next time you washed your hair and then your fake hair washed out.
It would kind of be like turning yourself into a Chia Pet or something.
I think you can only get it from Canada though. Those Canadians get all of the good stuff!

come back and tell us whats going on. This post cracks me up. What is it with doctors and diabetes. I have heard stories like this over and over and last week it happened to me. Stomach bloating=diabetes. NOT, WTF. Docs are crazy they need to lay off the meds.
