Diabetes and Me

Posted by jesikabeth on July 25, 2014 at 7:34am 3 Comments

I had been diagnosed with insulin resistance since 2005, I was 25 years old. I was in recovery from a long battle with Anorexia and Bulimia, and my mother who is a nurse realized my breath was smelling 'sweet'.

The weird part is that the minute I got home the…

More Doctor Pinball

Posted by Tiki on July 24, 2014 at 10:18am 2 Comments

Had another follow-up appointment for the infected abscess on my leg. I really am getting fed up with my doctor's office. I rarely get to see my actual doctor and every time I go in, I am seeing a new doctor and have to reexplain everything that's going on.

So, after explaining to this doctor about what's been going on with this abscess over the past three weeks, she examined it and agreed that it probably started from a bug bite. "I've seen this exact thing before, it started from a…
