Finally went to the eye doctor

Posted on March 10, 2011 at 1:32am 5 Comments

Due to moving twice since my last eye check, I didn't get to see the eye doctor.

(And I didn't really want to see an eye doctor, because I heard of several people with diabetes starting to have eye problems).

Although it seems like moving is my new hobby, because this year I'll make it to twice again (moving to munich at the beginning of the year, and moving to another district of munich next month -which is good, because I don't change the city once more-), I found a great new… Continue

Is there a recipe for a good life with diabetes?

I read a great book in german about psyching out diabetes ("Diabetes ist meine Sache" by Axel Hirsch).

It made me see so many things in a more realistic, relaxed but also empowering way...

At the end of that book I made a little list with the things that helped me most (along with my own ideas) and I thought that would make a nice blog entry. Here we go:

1. Humor- Laughing about some of my weird diabetes habits instead of blaming me and… Continue

Die Diabetes Hands Foundation hat beschlossen das System mit den Botschaftern für einzelne Länder aufzugeben. Trotz dieser Entwicklung halte ich es für wichtig, dass die deutschsprachigen Benutzer hier eine Anlaufstelle haben. Zu diesem Zweck habe ich eine neue Gruppe für Deutschland, Schweiz und Österreich angelegt. Ich würde mich sehr freuen, wenn ihr bei dieser Gruppe Mitglied werden könntet. Grüße, Holger (hatte leider keine Zeit für eine persönliche Mail)

Hallo Astrid, aus aktuellem Anlass möchte ich auf das Projekt TuAnalyze hinweisen. Dort kann man seinen letzten HbA1c Wert eingeben und für eine wissenschaftliche Studie des Children's Hospital Boston freigeben. Wir benötigen nur noch 16 Mitglieder aus Deutschland, die Ihren HbA1c Wert dort eingeben. Ist diese Schwelle erreicht, so wird der Durchschnittswert aller deutschen Mitglieder auf der Weltkarte farblich dargestellt. Viele Grüße aus Münster, Holger.

Hallo Astrid, ich wünsche Dir ein frohes neues Jahr 2011. Zur Schöpfung
von Inspiration oder Motivation möchte ich Dich auf einen sehr
kraftvollen Vortrag von Aimee Mullins hinweisen.
