Life is crazy...

I can now see distance and have a bunch of reading glasses for close up. I'm in my apartment thanks to a program that got into Section 8 housing. I just had my first annual inspection but I'm having a hard time believing it's been a year as of August I've been in here. I also now have SSI and Medi-Cal (California's version of Medicaid) so for the fourth time in a year I'm having to change Doctors and specialists again. Nobody seems to be able to handle someone with so many diagnoses. Hope to…See More

"Wow, I was going to chime in here but it seems there are far more knowledgeable people than me. LOL! I was way past legally blind for a couple of years. Legally blind is 20/200. My best eye was 20/800 and the other so much worse they didn't…"

My name is Clayton Bruster. I'm a semi-retired and disabled photographer and artist located in the Hacienda Heights (Los Angeles County), California area.

I am also a diabetic. I was diagnosed as type II in March of 2006 after showing many different symptoms as I'm sure you all know here. They finally figured out I developed diabetes and it was throwing off a lot of my other systems in my body and making anything I previously had wrong much more prominent. In less than a month I went from a pill a couple times a day to two different pills three times a day, Lantus at night and Humulin R on a sliding scale during the day. Not to mention all the other pills and meds for the vertical problems that presented themselves. But life is beautiful and I love to capture that beauty and sell it. ;-)

I have some slide shows above of some of my work. I have done a lot of model portfolio and art work but I have also done a lot of events, glamour, fashion, portraits, landscapes, seascapes, wildlife, birds, sunsets, product shots and you name it.

Places to find me? Well, best places to start:

Sorry for my long absence.

I haven't been on here for a while and for that I apologize. The depression is set in and I find it so hard to do anything anymore. On top of that it's even harder to do anything that has to do with talking about my health or diabetes. Where to start? I don't think I blogged it here yet but last January I was on the streets of Bellingham Washington for a few days and had nothing with me. No money, change of clothes or anything but like a good diabetic I still had my meds. Well they found me… Continue

Type 1.5 or LADA Diabetes

Posted on April 15, 2011 at 12:44pm 3 Comments

I've been confused over this new classification and as I was researching I found this article that seems to explain it pretty well. So here it is:



Type 1.5 Diabetes

aka Slow Onset Type 1 and LADA

Type 1.5 is one of several names now applied to those who are diagnosed with diabetes as adults, but who do not immediately require insulin for treatment, are often not overweight, and have little or no resistance to insulin. When special lab tests are done, they are found to have… Continue

OK, got answers but now more questions...

Posted on July 13, 2010 at 6:15pm 7 Comments

I went to the Clinical Social Workers office today and she helped me push to get some answers. My MRI's of head and neck came out good. WooHoo! No blockages or aneurysms found. High Resolution CT Chest Scan found the Interstitial Lung Disease but they still don't think it's bad enough to be causing the problems I'm having breathing. Two more tests being ordered. For one I'll have to go to USC or someplace out East. Can't remember where he said. So, once again, I know what it's not, and some of… Continue
