Dear Barbara (Pup), I am in tears. I am so sorry I was not here in your time of need. The guilt is intense right now! I wish I had known what you were going through. I am so heartbroken to have only NOW just discovered what happened. I will forever cherish the conversations we had and I will always remember the way you saved me. I remember when I was first diagnosed back in December 2012, I was so weak, hopeless and traumatized. You were there when I was crying out for help, you were there when I was so sick and fragile, my arms and legs were numb and my stomach felt like it was burning and I remember you telling me to just "hold on", and I did. You truly are a gem and a beautiful soul, the love, care and support you offered was one of the most healing experiences so far in my 19 years of living.

I miss you so much it is unbearable. I hate myself for not knowing earlier, I am so horribly late and I feel awful right now. You are missed by each and every one of us. The last time we ever had a chat was when you told me about how worried you were about cancer and I sent you endless paragraphs, trying my best to help. I still can't believe you've been gone for a year and I had absolutely no idea.

I will never be able to thank you enough, you are my angel, my savior and I know you're in a happier place, free from any kind of pain, reading this and I just want to finish by saying I LOVE YOU.

Hey Pup! So it's been a whole year since, you know..If there's a such thing as "looking down from up above", then you also know how I've never stopped missing you, and how the thought that you are no longer with us never gets easier. So I guess I'm posting this in a celebration of you.

Since I was first diagnosed, I've always struggled to control my sugars. At first, they were waaaay too high (a1c: 13%). Then they were waaaay too low (a1c 4.9%). And now, they're somewhere in the middle. I still have monster highs and sneaky lows sometimes, and I've learned that it's not always my fault, that diabetes is a tricky, fickle, uncontrollable thing. That sometimes the Diabetes Gremlins can't help but make their mischief.

I've learned so much from having this disease, and so much from you. You still inspire me, even in your absence. When I encounter a new diabetic, still scared and confused, I remember myself a month after diagnosis, and I remember to treat them with the same patience and kindness and love that you blessed me with.

And I'm so grateful for you. Even a year later, I still can't stop missing you. I can't wait until we meet again. We love you Pup.

Much love and duck fiabetes,

Jay

Happy Birthday pup, missing you.

At 7:35pm on October 30, 2014, Linda G said…

OCTOBER 31st! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PUP, my sister my friend! Do you celebrate birthdays "up there"? I often wonder what you're doing....
what you're up to! Miss you like crazy...we all do. Miss those 6 am chats with our cuppa, as I did birthdays and greets and you "opening up" the chat room.
Baskets of hugs, sprinkled with tears dear Barbara ♥ .....

A shadow of joy flickered; it is me.
I told you I wouldn't leave.
My memories, my thoughts are imbedded deep in your heart.
I still love you.
Do not for one moment think that you have been abandoned.
I am in the Light.
In the corner, in the hall, the car, the yard ~
these are the places I stay with you.
My spirit rises every time you pray for me,
but my energy comes closer to you.
Love does not diminish; it grows stronger.
I am the feather that finds you in the yard,
the dimmed light that grows brighter in your mind,
I place our memories for you to see.
We lived in our special way,
a way that now has its focus changed.
I still crave your understanding
and long for the many words of prayer
and good fortune for my soul.
I am in the Light.
As you struggle to adjust without me,
I watch silently.
Sometimes I summon up all the strength of my new world
to make you notice me.
Impressed by your grief,
I try to impress my love deeper into your consciousness.
As you should, I call out to the Heavens for help.
You should know that the fountain of youth does exist.
My soul is now healthy.
Your love sends me new found energy.
I am adjusting to this new world.
I am with you and I am in the Light.
Please don't feel bad that you can't see me.
I am with you wherever you go.
I protect you,
just as you protected me so many times.
Talk to me and somehow I will find a way to answer you.
Mother, Father, son or daughter, it makes no difference.
Brother, sister, lover, husband or wife, it makes no difference.
Whatever our connection ~ friend or even foe ~ I see you with my new eyes.
I am learning to help wherever you are, wherever I am needed.
This can be done because I am in the Light.
When you feel despair, reach out to me. I will come.
My love for you truly does transcend from Heaven to Earth.
Finish your life with the enthusiasm and zest that you had
when we were together in the physical sense.
You owe this to me, but more importantly,
you owe it to yourself.
Life continues for both of us.
I am with you because I love you
and I am in the Light.

Dearest Barbara:

yesterday was Madolyne's birthday.....OMG she's 15. You helped me so much last year when she was going through some really tough times. I know you were looking over her yesterday with a smile on your face.

I miss you more than I can put into words. The silliest things make me think of you....spaghetti squash, nose spray, playing with my dog, a random s***** BG for no reason at all.

You are one in a million. I'm a better person for knowing you.

Gremlin invasion and frustration!

Posted on February 15, 2012 at 9:02am 9 Comments

This is the third day I've been suffering a massive D gremlin attack. I simply can't keep my #s where they belong, and usually are.

The first day my boluses just didn't seem to work, and I did loads of corrections for slightly elevated numbers (high 120s, 166 after a small meal/bolus).

Second day I woke at 115 (I'm usually in the 80s), bolused as usual because I rise just by getting up, ate nothing and was in the 180s an hour later.

Corrected by injection, changed my site.…

Cruise challenges, pleasures and stats

Posted on December 27, 2011 at 9:53am 2 Comments

Warning - a long blog!

What a great vacation! This was my 2nd cruise with my best friend/'sister'. Lots of resting, sitting by the pool, and eating! The Caribbean is so lovely, shopping always fun :) We went aqua class, which allowed us to eat in a small dining room with supposedly lighter food LOL. Truly fine dining every night. The first night was ahi tuna and it just kept getting better. I ate bread every night, and a real dessert. A chocolate croissant with my protein/fat…

8.4 to 5.9 in 3 months!

Posted on July 7, 2011 at 8:43am 7 Comments

My endo nurse practitioner walked into the exam room this am and literally jumped up and down.. my A1C dropped from 8.4 to 5.9 since February. I jumped with her LOL. She said she had some changes noted for my pump settings, but tore it up and said just keep doing what you're doing. We talked low carb a bit (I aim for 40 a day). She expressed some concern about me getting enough nutrients, which I was able to allay. My cholesterol #s have also improved, though not yet where I'd like them despite… Continue

Stuff, crap, and more stuff

Posted on June 5, 2011 at 10:28am 5 Comments

I'm writing this for me - it's a dump - so no need to read it if you don't want to hear a litany of complaints!



My boys are special needs adopted. The oldest is 28 and finally out of jail, living on the streets again and saying all the right things. He thought I'd be thrilled that he went to AA ONCE. I'm not an enabler. I give him information, resources, etc. and he can choose whether to follow up. Some days I wonder how far down rock bottom is for him. Hope he wakes up… Continue
