Well its been about a month and Its time to update my blog and add all the new stuff...
This past month has been very busy.. especially the last few days..
Three Major things have happened, and I will start off with the Runescape Acomplishments.
I GOT THE SLAYER MASK
*DANCES* I did 35 tasks in a row.. I blocked two monsters, Steel Dragons, I just hate them.. there are not many to kill and I want to power though slayer assignments, and Warped Terrorbirds, NO THANKS!!!!!
I gained 4 Slayer levels.. And i am Sad.. Now my Runecrafting is lower then Slayer :(
I got A Range level, I might want to invest in a Cannon since it seems so much faster (this is one skill that i wont take slow if i decide to power level)
I went up 2 Strength Levels 1 Attack 1 Defence
Also I have to say... I am going to have to try out Aniska0's Cookies, they sound delicious
*BEWARE I KNOW HOW TO SCREENSHOT*
I got Two Summoning Levels Via Juna
Woot If i wanted to I can teleport for faster nature runecrafting.
And my Proudest Achevement
160 TEARS @ JUNA
WOOT, I was just dang lucky to have 3-4 streams for a long time :) but that's alot :)
Now onto the second thing, if you judge a man as being old by having to take alot of medication, then I have arrived and am now a official "Old Man"
I FINALLY went to the docs three weeks ago (from time of posting) and I am glad.. My chances of living past 50 have gone up TREMENDOUSLY.
My mother recommended this doc when she mentioned her legs were no longer swollen and i told her my right one was.
Week # 1
First off, I am very fat, turns out i was at 380lbs just about.
When i went in My Blood Pressure was at 175/110, and i did not realize how bad it was.
The attractive nurses tried to take blood from my arm and that was a failure.. my veins just wont get stuck.
They tried twice there, then on my hand, which got it.
I also did a metabolic test where i sat and breathed though a tube for 10 minutes.
Turns out if i exercise some and with normal daily activity i burn about 4k calories a day.. and they want me eating about 2400 a day to loose weight.
now the doc there was not the one my mother recomended, but i was not going to go back again the next day.
so he put me on tekturna and gave me a 5 week supply (which i need to return the 4 bottles that i have not used)
Week # 2
I go in and my blood pressure has gone down some 148/102, which is a good improvement on the high side and some on the low :)
The Doc is the one my mother recommended and so far I think he is doing a good job. He saw the results from the test and saw that my blood sugar was normal for someone who had fasted (I sleep usually till 2pm and the appts are all around 3 pm) so I had not eaten before going for that first blood test and they could run it as me having fasted.
But my testosterone levels were WAY TO LOW for a man my age.. maybe 50's but not 27...
So he had me come in that next day and fast to have my insulin checked. (which was July 3rd)
The doc puts me on Tekturna with a water pill and Tricor and Niaspan to lower my cholesterol (which i believe will do another blood draw for later) Also he prescribed a shampoo (which i have not gotten yet because its to popular its rare) and a cream for my psoriasis on my legs.
So now i am pissing alot more.... :/
Week # 3
I go in and my Blood Pressure is now @ 150/86 which is a HUGE decrease on the resting side, and not much change on the other.. The water pills have helped ALOT.
I also have lost 10lbs!!!!!
I also get the results back from the test, my insulin is WAY TO HIGH, so he thinks we can combat the insulin and that in turn will help the testosterone go back up. (this is a Major relief since its supposed to give me more energy and *ahem* Between the sheets functions will work alot better then current.
He also wants me working out alot more.. walking 7 hours a week (1 hour a day)
And he wants me on a Diet pill.
So We have added some medication, Metformin to fight the insulin and raise testosterone, and Phentermine to block hunger cravings. (Phentermine is the main ingredient in Phen Phen)
So I have to say, I think it helped since i was at the Chinese place and was not very hungry at all today... But that could have been the third thing...
Lately my car has been having overheating problems.. driving to and from work (18 miles total abouts) its not affected.
But driving in the scorching afternoon sun @ 2-3 causes the radiator to overheat, and I think the reservoir got super heated steam/water and melted a hole.. or a hose is leaking on the bottom.
So traveling like 30 miles to the doc and 30 back has overheated the engine twice, (stopped before anything happened and let it cool and added water) but the leaks the cause.. it seems to fail more when its very hot.
So, today my dad calls me when i am near asleep and tells me he is bringing a car over for me to look at.
It turns out his work (sprint) is selling a 2006 Ford Escape, with 61k Miles and Warranty on it still!!!!
There asking price, 8300, and my father said after driving it down that he wishes he enver told me about it cause he wants it.
It has power locks windows mirrors WORKING AC (in the 11 years I have been driving I have NEVER HAD WORKING AC) along with a remote for locking/unlocking.
Since it was used by a phone company it has one of those metal grids behind to hang things on and keep boxes from flying up and hitting the driver. (IamJosh got the naughty thought in a private chat quickly even though Aniska0 was there as well)
Sadly its not a Hybrid but it does get 17-23 mpg (what I averaged with the Honda when I was not being cautious so this is not that bad, but for almost 20 years of new technology I expected better.
So I went with my step mom to a credit union that she knows, we signed up, got accepted. (got to take in my latest pay stub for them tommorow/today) and the check will go out tommorow/today. And hopefully by next Wednesday at the latest tommorow/today at the earliest, I will have a new SUV!!!!!!
WOOT WOOT :)
So thats the long update for today.. I want to start posting more about weight and blood pressure so I can be more motivated.
Thanks for reading :)
