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

Ellen-So glad to hear you are feeling better. Unfortunately, I am still having a lot of trouble walking. My neurologist wants me to start a new med. At this point I'll try almost anything. I am also not sleeping much at night so I am tired all day. I get up tired and dizzy. I think I have lost more weight. I never did gain back the weight I lost last year. Jim & I went to a Christmas party Sat. night and I pigged out on desserts. I took enought insulin to cover the sweets. I know you are not supposed to do that. But it was a special occasion. Zorro has adapted quite well to his new home. He spends a lot of time looking out a window in the living room at the birds and squirrels. Jim put up several bird feeders that we had from the house. It is nice to see wildlife. We are completely settled in our new place. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a healthier 2015. I'm not sending out cards because my handwriting is terrible. Take care of yourself. Susan

Merry Christmas Ellen,

So good to hear you are out of the hospital!!! Glad you are not sick! Are you over it all now? Your boyfriend called a few weeks ago to say you were in the hospital so 'I knew where you were. So sorry you missed the passing of the seasons.

Brian and I have not met and I at least would love to meet with you anytime you can. I did not send a Christmas card because I lost your address.

Enjoy the Holidays and give my love to everyone. Peaches and Ginger send Christmas love.
All my Best Cathy

I am sorry that I disappeared without warning, but I developed more health issues than I could handle so I stopped the computer and tried to get better. Nothing is worse than complaining, and especially about a bunch of other chronic illnesses when this site…

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…
