We Don't Treat That

Started this discussion. Last reply by Linda G Jul 24. 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

Okay, I went and had that endoscopy 830 this morning. They gave me that anesthesia Propathol. The MJ one. I came home totally loopy. I was so high that I couldn't walk to the car. I ate, and took…Continue

Hello Ellen. How are things with you? Are you aby better? I do not know what has hit me but this is my third night being up all night. I am exhausted. Russ is a lot of care. Very wanting. Hates to be alone. Tom is exhaisted. I did not go to Church as Russ would be alone. Tom had to go as he was a server. Doing nothing for Labor Day. The beaches here are filled to overflowing and the city is mobbed with tourists. Hope all is getting better with you. Your ducks smile at me everyday. HUGS,Reed

Hi Ellen-I was happy to hear from you. The pictures were all hung in the apt. Now it really feels like home. I have been feeling tired the past few days b/c I wake up at 4 AM and cannot sleep anymore. I like your purple page, it is very pretty. The weather has cooled off quite a bit, but we are supposed to have summer again this week. I can't believe it is already Sept. Where did the summer go ? I hope you are feeling a little better. I am sure the morphine helps with your pain, but watch out how much you take. It has some undesirable side effects. Have you been able to spend much time outside ? I know you like to be outside. I pray you will feel better soon. Take care. 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.
