There has been a lot of doom and gloom here lately. I know everyone is busy, depressed, overwhelmed and it is summer (and about 102 degrees here at the moment.)
For me, there are some not so bad things about my life as a Type 1; things I have conquered: I am alive (thanks to all the tech since 1960..), have a fantastic family (OK, again the tech, but my son is a wonderful man), had a great career (just retired,) but mostly, I have support from my family, friends, and the folks here who have been so amazing.
So, what is Great about your life???
Thanks for this -- heading to julianbakery.com right now!
I thought the paleo diet reflects the food of hunter gatherers from before agriculture and excludes grains?
I am really liking my life right now. My kids are grown (one is till in college and one is starting law school and both are doing very well.) My job is good and I am so enjoying the quiet peaceful time I share with my husband every evening. We truly are enjoying the empty nest. I am loving my cooking and experimentation with replicating recipes and making them low carb. I feel I can enjoy food again without so much fear (and my family loves my food too!). I realized I am used to life with T1 diabetes (3. 5 years after diagnosis). While I will never like it, it has become the norm. I am training for my first marathon (at age 50) a life long dream and now a reality. So all in all...life is very good!
I am currently in the Poconos at the Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort with my husband of 25 years and my son of almost 22 years. We just arrived and have a fantastic suite that came complete with a full kitchen already stocked with OJ, cheese and crackers. The weather is hot but not insufferable and I am looking forward to a break from work and several rounds of golf and maybe some mixed doubles in tennis with son and his girlfriend.Life is good !
Happy News! My D is under control, My weight is normal and our mortgage is paid off. All this for the first time in 20 years. And I still got my sanity through it all. I think
Congrats Gary, good for you, sanity however is totally over-rated.
The mortgage being paid off is awesome though !
I've had a rough couple weeks. Lost my 18-year old cat, Lula, and have been experiencing an increase of my arrhythmia symptoms. But you know what, life is still good. I am lucky to have insurance for life to pay for my pump and other medical needs. In August I'm going to Tampa to the wedding of a friend I've known since I was 17 (and haven't seen in 30 years!). I live in a beautiful place and there is a doe lying down relaxing next to my hammock behind the house right now. Thanks for this topic. When things have been rough is when I (we all) need to remember what we're grateful for.
That is fantastic! She's a lucky kitten to have wound up in your driveway. Thank you for doing that. I hope your lives together bring smiles to you everyday. I have two dogs who were rescues and they make me happy just being with them every day.
I agree Clare. Sanity is one of those things that if you think you have it you probally don't. They say one out of three people has some kind of mental problem. So look at two of your friends if they seem OK you might want to ask yourself if it might be me.
