Freaking SS20 this morning
So about a month ago we were getting SS20's (Autistic, lives with us full time, BM not in the picture at all, tells everyone I am mom) blood work done. We found out his cholesterol was through the roof. Like 60 yr old smoker. The doctor is giving us 6 months to get him on a downward track before we get him on meds because he is so young. It is probably genes, his great grandfather had like 16 heart attacks before he died, grandpa died of a heart attack, DH is forever borderline with high cholesterol- but he runs 3-6 miles daily and keeps himself in check.
Anyway, we tell him to start, he has to write down everything that he eats for a week. Don't make any changes, just write down what you normally do. He works at WAWA ("fancy gas station" with a good bistro-like counter and coffee bar). We KNOW he gets food from there. We know he buys candy and brings it home because I have to unleash on him all the time about food wrappers in his room. We KNOW he does this stuff. We just need him to write it down so we can show him ACTUAL changes he needs to make. He doesn't need to lose weight, he was so under weight when he first moved in with me but is at a good weight now. However, he does need to make healthy changes.
HE WON'T DO IT! He just keeps saying "I know what I ate. I can tell you now".-- I lost it this morning. He can't even remember to brush his teeth but he "remembers" every single thing he put in his face hole for a week?? Like we are going to believe that?? No one remembers EVERYTHING they ate for an entire week. Lord Help me.
After I was done yelling, he said "Fine! I am not eating breakfast or lunch so I don't have to write anything down!" then got out of the car to go in to work. All I could think was HOW FREAKING STUPID ARE YOU!?!?!?! Of course I can't say that but ladies and gents... this is my life.
I need a freaking vacation.
