"TDD is Total Daily Dose of insulin. LADA is Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults, a slightly different form of Type 1 that starts later in life, after ~age 20. Some call it Type 1.5. Ted Quick"

"What is TDD? I'm new to diabetes, LADA, insulin. Just trying to learn as much as I can."

I Lost My Job

Posted on August 2, 2009 at 7:49pm 2 Comments

I just learned last Tuesday that I was being laid off from my job as a pastor. My heart is breaking, and I don't have a clue what we're going to do or where we're going to go. They gave me a half-way decent severence package, which includes insurance through the end of September. My Insulin costs nearly 1300 dollars for a 90 day supply. What if I don't have a job and insurance within 60 days? I have high blood pressure, an enlarged prostate, Hepatitis C, and sleep apnea. How in the world will I… Continue

I Want To Be Normal--Whatever That Is......

Posted on February 26, 2009 at 10:36pm 8 Comments

Hey Ya'll,

I've been staying away from TuDiabetes for the last 3 or 4 weeks. You see, I've sort of been on a binge, and I feel like a hypocrite. I was the one trying to encourage everyone and suddenly I found myself standing on the edge of the precipice wondering if maybe I should just step off. Not like suicide, you know, but like doing all the things I fight so hard not to do on a daily basis--which for a diabetic is really a slower form of suicide. I've just been tired of fighting. I… Continue

Kudos To Those Who Have Gone Before!

Posted on December 27, 2008 at 11:34pm 6 Comments





This is Ed & Vera Weldy, my parents. A beautiful couple wouldn't you say? He was born in 1921 and she was born in 1923. They both grew up during hard times during the Great Depression and the "Dirty Thirties." They truly knew what it was like to scrape and scrounge for everything they had. In 1942 my mother was pregnant with their first child, when my Dad was drafted. The U.S. Army sent him to Salt Lake City, Utah for about 3 or 4 days… Continue

Lean On Me.

Posted on December 21, 2008 at 4:37pm 4 Comments











I think this should be our theme song. I have read two different posts today from people who are struggling, and this song just popped into my head. I realized most of us are separated by miles and miles, but even here we can learn to lean on each other.

So anyway, this video and the outstanding song is for all of you out there who are having a diffcult time. I hope it lifts your spirits, and in a spiritual sense causes you to reach out and… Continue

Nephropathy: Kidney Damage, Am I the Only One?

Posted on November 12, 2008 at 8:56am 4 Comments

I went to my Dr. yesterday and discovered I have Diabetic Nephropathy, which is kidney disease. I have been retaining water for quite some time which shows up in the swelling of my feet and lower legs. What's really weird is my left leg is worse than my right leg, much worse. They also did a test that deteremined that I have a condition called Microalbuminuria. It is the presence of protein which is normally found in the blood and filtered by the kidneys, which means my kidneys are damaged… Continue
