I'm in Goliad. I have lived in Bryan/ College Station, Houston/ Kingwood, and Victoria! I love to visit Austin, Houston, SA, College Station, Galveston, Hill Country and a lot of other places I cant think of right now (:
I live in Abilene, Texas. Was born and raised in Baytown, east of Houston. Have been a diabetic for over 20 years and have some of the side effects of it that show. I have had 3 heart attacks, a by-pass, bones removed from my foot that were infected. Luckily I can still get out of bed every morning and take a deep breath!
Finally found a Dr. here that saw from my sugar levels that I needed to be on a pump. My levels were in the 400 to 500 range for a long time. Other Dr's wanted me to take more insulin and were going to add oral meds to the mix. I was taking 12 shots a day and said enough is enough. I went to the other endo here in Abilene, we only have 2, and he immediately put me on a pump. Have been pumping now for a month and my sugars are down to the 75-125 range. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it's not an oncoming train anymore!
