We Don't Treat That

Started this discussion. Last reply by Linda G on Thursday. 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

Ellen-Hope you are feeling better. I saw on Cathy's page that you weren't feeling too good. Today is such a beautiful day, cool and sunny almost like Sept. It makes me feel better. I wanted to ask you if you use syringes ? I don't anymore and have them from when I did. I would be happy to send them to you if you could use them. I currently use pens for both insulins that I take. We are down to the wire for the packing. Have to keep some things for the day of the move and, of course, all my meds. I hope to set up the kitchen over the weekend, if I can find the things that go in there. Enjoy your day. Susan

Ellen,
I just been looking through my calendar to find some dates we can meet. This coming week is pretty well taken up but on 8/4 from 2:30 on I could meet or 8/5 all day. The fifth may be better because I will clean on the forth.
I know what you mean about eating. It's now 1:31 and I haven't eaten all day. I didn't eat but a very little last night. I'm just as glad with not eating except keeping up with the Diabetes. Maybe I'll loose some weight. I so enjoy eating though when I'm well. I just been drinking coffee. I like it with lots and lots of milk. All this stomach stuff just makes me feel lonely. It's kind of a sick feeling. Everyone has been very supportive but it's not the same as living with another person.

Cathy

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.
