We Don't Treat That

Started this discussion. Last reply by Linda G 1 hour ago. 123 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

Dear Ellen,

I have been hospitalized since July 19 till 4:30 today July 23rd. I had low sodium again and severe diarrhea. While there I developed blood pressure of 230 and became very Nauseated.

I'm really worn out so I 'm taking email slowly. I still want to see you. How busy are you next week. Maybe you can come here. We can have a sandwich or something and relax.

Cathy

hi Lots :) is that one picture what we use to call hens and chickens ? I like all your plants and the upside down ones are nice too.Reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.. We still have the kitten and he is a handful..what was I thinking.Someone needs to haul me off next time I get a bright idea to take in another critter.No,he is very cute and fun at times he is not getting into things.My other male cat has bondeed with him and it is the cutest thing.They play a lot.On a sad note-my oldest cat that always had the freedom to go indoors and out,can no longer go out. She was gone for a day or so and had me worried.When she came home-I noticed she could not see so well and was not doing too good.She is back to eating well but never will she be let out alone again.Love the pictures,thanks.I took a break from being online-so just seeing them :)

Ellen-What a lively surprise ! I love the ducks ( I think they are ducks ?) You shouldn't have, but I am glad you did. I will hang them in the new apt. Did you make them ? Things are moving along. Jim was able to bring over many packed boxes and put them on shelves. We have the key, but maintenance and housekeeping are still working on the carpets and cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms. It was used as a sample for months and needed to be cleaned up for us. This weekend we will be able to bring more things and put them in the kitchen and on the floor of the closets.
We have less than 2 weeks to finish packing before we move on Aug.5.
I haven't been sleeping too well. I wake up at 2,3 or 4 AM and can't go back to sleep, which leaves me groggy all day. So many things to do at the last minute with my meds and D supplies. I hope you feel much better soon. That is terrible about your insulin situation. I hope it gets resolved ASAP. My BG have come down for the most part. I need to figure out a new I:C ratio for dinner time.
Take care of yourself. Susan
PS I like your pic better than the new avatar. Sorry about the parsley, it sounds like a ground hog or rabbit ate it. I don't think dogs like parsley.

"I learned a beautiful saying a while ago. I can't remember exactly what it went like but it was about beads spilling on the floor and finding the golden thread to put them all together again. You have written your son's story very well."

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

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.
