Bad Days, Brain Fog... (DBlog)

Yesterday we opened up about how diabetes can bring us down. Today let’s share what gets us through a hard day. Or more specifically, a hard diabetes day. Is there something positive you tell yourself? Are there mantras that you fall back on to get you through? Is there something specific you do when your mood needs a boost? Maybe we've done that and we can help others do it too? (Thanks to Meri of Our Diabetic Life for suggesting this…

My Stuff (DBlog)

Wildcard Day: "Write a short story personifying a diabetes tool you use on a daily basis. A meter, syringe, pump, pill, etc. Give it a personality and a name and let it speak through you. What would it be happy about, upset about, mad about? "

I am a DMB (Diabetes Messenger Bag) and my name is Stuff. I have special powers: I can mind-meld with Mom's computer, and I'm on the same wavelength as HPP (Hot Pink Paperclip), who lives on Word. He winks and…

Seasons of 2014 (DBlog)

Winter Haiku

Icicles are poised

to stab, sharp as my lancets.

Our winter lingers.



Finally May



The world is changing, these first weeks in May.

Trees unfurl their leaves, green and rust.

The first flowers of spring punctuate the landscape with purple and gold.

Colors drop from the sky.

Tiny warblers leave their flock, staking out new territories.

Colors come in different sizes, ruby red hummers, cerulean blue…

Dear Trudy, Yes, I spent two days in the hospital and yesterday in the ER. They did tests on my blood and ultrasounds of my aorta, kidney, gall bladder and liver. They did not find any cancer, tumors or blocks, so it must be neuropathy of the organs. I guess my gall bladder is not contracting. I was given lots of Neurontin and it helps with the pain. I am, for some reason, having weakness in my muscles and it is hard to do anything. I am going to try to take a slow walk today. It is cloudy here and a little cooler. If I can get to the pool, the cold water helps a lot with the pain, at home ice packs on my stomach.
How are you doing? How is the poison ivy problem? Are you all better from the fall? How are the pups? I have been thinking of them. Ammi does not like the hot weather. We walk him twice a day but he gets so overheated sometimes. I will be glad when the weather cools off. Thanks for thinking of me.
Next week I will go to the VA. They will do more tests and determine what the problem is hopefully... The doctor at the ER said that diabetes can cause the gall bladder issues. He also said that I could have neuropathy from the surgery so thus the Neurontin to help the nerve pain. Take care. Ellen
