Actually, I kinda like the idea....lol.
We need to start a movement a "Go Commando Diabetic" Day. Oh we don't really do anything, its just the thought of it.
Or you could take control of your health and search for a way to rid yourself of this! that is what I am doing. I am also tired of this crap and have decided my body is a testing ground. Would be nice if others were doing this so we could correspond on what may or may not be of benefit.
Yes, that is what I am looking for. Would be nice to know what does and doesn't work. I haven't seen any thread on here before that even addressed this. Guess I will have to keep looking.
Dean, like Benjamin said, if you search and can't find an answer post the question in the discussion on the home page. Someone here WILL have an answer. I am not going to say that you will like the answers that you receive. Everyone is at a different point in their diabetic life. So the answer may not fit where you are in your current diaabetic "cycle". And yes it is a cycle. Some days you feel like you can handle this with no problem. Other days it just all seems like it is too much. What works today may not work tomorrow. It is the nature of the beast that is diabetes.
So hang with us. Give us a chance. Just remember that you can do it!
Thanks! I have had T1 long enough. This is about getting rid of it!! I don't get the idea that many people are crazy enough to use themselves as a guinea (sp?) pig. I do, and have! So far nothing has worked of course or I would be screaming it from the rooftops!! That said, though, I don't believe I am being wreckless either. I take this all very seriously. I research as much as I can, start small, keep track of what it is i am doing, ect... Still, based on what I have seen the pancreas will regenerate itself if only we find a way to stop the body from attacking itself. I also believe the answer is a natural solution, the right mix of herbs and exercise or something along those lines....
I seriously doubt that. But would love to be proven wrong:)
What I am trying to say here is that I am interested in doing what ever it takes to remove this. I also have been the kind that doesn't really do all the things we are "supposed" to do, and I don't mind openly admitting it. I haven't met many who were as cavalier about their disease as I. Not saying I am out of control, though not as in control as the doctor would like. I however, avoid the doctor as much as possible. After almost 30 years of this there aren't many who I believe are going to know as much about me as I do. Plus have had so many quacks over the years who wouldn't listen to me or work with me too. This is my problem, and mine to fix if I want it gone. No one seems all that interested in doing it for us!!!
I realize I should start a conversation here, just haven't figured out to word it just yet. I believe I may be a bit intense for some, scare people from time to time with my intesity, though never my intent!
No not upset. For a long time I waited, as we all have, for some medical breakthrough. Was told when diagnosed that a cure would be found within 10 years. Well that came and went 20 years ago. I don't worry about it either. I can and have lived with this, and will continue to do so.
I have just reached a point in my life where I might as well try to do this on my own. I am all about taking responsibility for my actions in every other area of life so why not take charge of this too.
