Need food ideas when sick

I have been battling a foot infection and have been really sick in my stomach a lot since before Christmas. Right now I am not sure if it is the infection or the antibiotics making me sick – the other times I was on antibiotics, I felt better while on them but I am using a different one this time and still really sick in my stomach. Although I have some tests scheduled to confirm what is going on, I get the impression from this doctor that antibiotics are going to be in my future for awhile.I…See More

The Delusional Optimist Returns: A Flicker of Hope

Posted on December 8, 2012 at 12:25pm 9 Comments

Back in the mid-90s was when I started having some signs of complications. In 1995, I had an upper GI that showed slow stomach emptying – at the time, I didn’t realize that I had the beginning stages of gastroparesis. In 1995 and 1996, I also had a lot of laser surgery for retinopathy. During that same time period, I started getting neuropathy in my feet that got progressively…

Contest About Medical Records

Posted on August 12, 2012 at 10:35am 2 Comments

I saw this on e-patient Dave the other night and wanted to share. The Department of Health and Human Services is having a contest about medical records – you have to submit a video that is less than 2 minutes. I am sure a lot of us have some good stories to tell! My personal favorite of mine was when I read that I had end stage kidney disease – I didn’t panic because I knew I did not have kidney disease let alone end stage kidney disease.

Since e-patient Dave was the one that took the…

In The Year 2112

Posted on April 1, 2012 at 6:44am 2 Comments

Today is Day One of the Wego Health Writer’s Challenge. The prompt for today is “Pretend you’re making a time capsule of you & your health focus that won’t be opened until 2112. What’s in it? What would people think of it when they found it?”

The first thing that I thought of when I read the prompt was the song In the Year 2525. Of course I had to find a YouTube video and stick that in here so you are singing that song along…

What Heaven Looks Like in a Nor’Easter

Posted on October 30, 2011 at 7:30am 9 Comments

I was lucky and our power only went out for about 6 ½ hours. I know other people are still waiting for theirs to come back on. It went out about 12:30 yesterday afternoon and about 5:30, I saw several Penelec trucks pull up. These guys look like Angels when you are sitting without power, the sun is going down and it is getting colder than you already are. They were working at an electric pole near where I live for about a half hour. It was about 7:05 when the lights finally came back on.… Continue

Thanks again for the cauliflower thread! Haven't done it in a long time... cauli fried rice next :)

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!
