Medical Expenses and SuppliesBy buckroth



This is a tough subject for me to share. It is magnanimous in detail and overwhelming to realize. Wait, you’ll see what I’m talking about!



Yes, as a lifetime diabetic – 50+ years and counting – the collection of medical supplies continues. Compared with the cost of living,… Continue

Hello! Thank you for having me as a friend AK!
California....so far away, but it feels like you're right here! That's one of the appealing factors of tu.diabetes. I'm in Canada...in the southwestern part of the province of Ontario...a city named Kitchener-Waterloo (2 cities joined together). I'm a wife of 34 years (hubby is also diabetic), mom to two grown children (one 29, the other 27), a grandma to 4 lovable little boys, a teacher, and before that an illustrator (still do some) and graphic designer....I speak French fluently, I read, history fascinates me, I paint, sing, walk, garden, ski, ride my bike....did I mention "read"? I love having friends over, I bake/cook, am an eclectic music lover, an animal lover...the ocean...ah the ocean...it speaks to me! Oh...and I have diabetes (and a few other things).
Nice to have you as a friend!!! Tell me a bit about yourself and keep in touch, ok?
hugs....linda
