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

Ellen,

I have a lot of glucerna. I drink it for a meal or when I'm low. I'll think about it more for snacks.

Lots,

I've been eating Roast beef sandwiches recently and think I will continue awhile. From Arby's. They are on weight watchers diet. but I have been eating pecans in between meals. All this just recently probably since we've talked.

Com on back to chat. We could get some really good conversation up with this topic. Sorry about your experience with Chat before but it's been awhile hasn't it?

"Maybe you would like Glucerna shakes. They have them for both meals and snacks and you can get high protein ones I think. The regular shakes have ten grams of protein. I bet if you drank one for snack it would hold your blood glucose stable. Make…"

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.

I remember back when I thought I was invincible.

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.
