We Don't Treat That

Started this discussion. Last reply by lotsofshots 42 minutes ago. 92 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

Hey Lots. Glad you are having a good Monday.
No I have never taken Vistaril. The rest aril, plus gabapentin help me sleep but they take a long time to kick in.
There is "life-threatening heat" advisory and because my window unit is in the living room, I am sitting in the bedroom with sweat dripping dorn my face. It will feel good to take a shower.
Tonight I made cauliflower fried rice - take raw cauliflower and break into bits and pulse in the food processor. Combine with mixed veggies, minced onions and a couple of eggs and het in a fry pan. You could have fooled me into thinking it was actual rice! TShis is a keeper!

Hope you can get all this insulin stuff resolved on Monday. I am doing fine, things are busy. The Inova group has fallen on rough times, Inova has moved the group to every other month and I missed the last meeting due to travel. Maybe we can see each other at the next meeting.

Hi sister. Yes, the purple flowers were gorgeous. There is sort of a ritzy neighborhood about 1/2 mile from me and I think they all have professional gardeners to tend their flowers.
I gave up knitting about 5 years ago due to carpal tunnel. I really, really miss it now that I have so much extra time on my hands. I can't have surgery because it's in the arm with my dialysis vein graph and the blood flow is all goofed. But, I am doing some yoga exercises for the arms and shoulders.
We are having 90 degrees tomorrow with high humidity, but then sever storms and a cold front coming in.

If I go to Michaels I always end up spending a wad. I could be in that store for hours. I love it.
Did your mom maintain her WW weight loss? I haven't officially started, but am collecting info and recipes.
I got a ton of decluttering done this week, and it feels awesome.
I don't know if you've ever seen the tiles I do - I've put several up on Facebook. they are 4x4" bathroom tiles that I get at Home Depot, and then do designs with alcohol inks.

I'm glad I could help. Take the time to take a walk today and just breath, take in the sights and always remind yourself that it is going to be ok.

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…

Yesterday I spent the whole day planting a very small garden. The weather was hot and steamy. I had to rest a lot. By the time the plants were in I was all heated up and that seemed to put an end to my muscle and bone pain at least for the time being. The job was strenuous but I felt like it helped. Smelling the fresh herbs made me hungry for vegetables already in my freezer. It was quit inspiring to work with the dirt, dig up the roots and weeds and to prepare the soil. The plants seemed to…
