We Don't Treat That

Started this discussion. Last reply by ConnieW Oct 5. 124 Replies

I went to the doctor today and after a two hour appointment I was told that I was not going to be given a prescription for Insulin. Yikes. It was because I was Type 1. "We don't treat that. You need…Continue

I was watching this show and the lead actor was in prison faking that he had diabetes so that he could get in the infirmary and bust out of prison by using the grate and crawling through it. No way.…Continue

Hi Ellen-Haven't heard from you for a while. I haven't been on to frequently, I wasn't feeling too well. Not sleeping much at night so I am off during the day. How are you feeling ? The Autumn is really beautiful here. The property of Twining Village is all trees and grass.
The leaves are turning all beautiful colors. I went to see a holistic doc last week. She gave me some new ideas to try for my PD, which has been progressing. She suggested I try a gluten-free diet. I may do a modified one. We sold our house last week. I hope the sale goes thru. A young couple with a baby bought it. The house still has to go through the various inspections before it is OK for the house to be fully approved. Let's hear from you. I really care and want to know how you are doing. Hugs to the furry ones. Susan

The Sermon

Posted on July 22, 2014 at 1:28pm 3 Comments

Once a Zen master just set down to pronounce a sermon, when outside a bird started to sing. The master did not say a word and everybody listened to it.
When the bird stopped singing the master simply announced that the sermon was over, and he moved away.
-The Spirit of Zen, Lo Zen, by W. Watts

True creativity and alertness only arise when emptiness has seized the mind.
I am halfway there.
My mind is empty.

Invincible

Posted on July 22, 2014 at 1:17pm 4 Comments

I remember back when I thought I was invincible.

 

I was one of the people with diabetes that never would get sick. I was not going to let that happen. I ate right, ran a lot, took my BG levels all the time, and saw the doctor. What happened was that I was not one of the lucky ones. I got all the complications and then some other things too. Am I the same person that I was before, still a person, still…

I Keep Going

Posted on July 14, 2014 at 3:32pm 7 Comments

All this summer has been full of pain. I try to do my best to keep up with everything, but it is hard when I am always hurting. I have so many chronic illnesses that I hesitate to even make a list of them because it might scare me! I spend a lot of time in the hospital, in the ER and at the doctors but nothing seems to help.

I do try as hard as I can to keep moving. I have a garden, pets and I go swimming every day. It seems like the heat never lets up, so it is nice to feel the cool…

Happy Hiking.
