Saw the endocrinologist. My long-term average blood glucose is OK (HbA1c = 7.1), my triglycerides and cholesterol are OK, my kidneys are undamaged, and I've lost five kilos in six months. In short, diabetes is under control at the mo. Yay me.
Alas, I have some sort of bug, which is making my innertubes a bit wobbly, and worse, has given me joint pain all over. Nurse Jon has provided massage and hot water bottles, not to mention making his own dinners, gods bless him.
I would post something coherent about wider society's contempt of fandom because it's play engaged in by adults (I think it was The Joy Of Sex which said bed was the only time grownups get to play), the relationship between fan fiction (play) and writing for publication (work), the contempt of each age group for the next younger group, and the hierarchies of literary snobbery in my head, but frankly I'm too knackered. *goes back to bed*
