We Don't Treat That

Started this discussion. Last reply by ConnieW Oct 5, 2014. 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 Lots,

How long do you know TuDiabetes? I see that you used to welcome people like I do now. I really enjoy it and to see what some people put on about themselves. The other day there was a new member that was Ms Jamaica United Nations - she was chosen for her advocacy of diabetes, notably for children. I like too the personal part of the site. It's going to change, we shall see what happens but for the moment, I don't like the conflict that is on because of the changes. I have a friend that told me that I flew out the kitchen door when there was a conflict and that's about true, I guess.
I enjoy the words of wisdom you put on your site from time to time. Are you in the blizzard? It looks tremendous! It's cold here with a little snow and ice on the ground, I took my dog for a walk but was happy to get back near the fire! Thanks for those beautiful yellow flowers. Have a nice day. Mari

Hi Ellen-I haven't been on too much lately. Still not feeling too well.
My meds aren't working like they should. I guess that is just the way it will be. How are all of your pets doing ? I hope you haven't tsken on too much with 3 animals. Hopefully they will stay well and get along with each other. How are you feeling ? I hope you do not have any new health problems. We got about 2" of snow last night and more is expected Sunday into Monday. I don't know if I am going to like this new platform TuD is installing. I am not that tech savvy and get confused easily on the computer. I just do the basic things. Hope you stay well. Take care. Susan

thanks for the doggie pictures. I am glad you like your pets they are alot of fun for sure but that comes with a few little demands I guess. No urge yet to get a puppy. I have bad tendentious in my heel or as they say Achilles heel and have been limping and hurting this past month. I think its age and too many medications. I watched your you tube and that brought a smile to my face. hope your doing good Pauly

I am not the only one that does it, does unhealthy things when I am nervous and anxious.? No. I ate lunch yesterday with a friend who is a Type 2. Although he as lost over a hundred pounds, he had a huge hot dog smothered in onions, cheese fries and a diet coke for lunch. This was while he was explaining to me that he feel so bad he went to the ER last night. I can guarentee he will feel worse once this meal hits. He is a culinary artist and knows a lot about diabetes. The last time he was…

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.
