We Don't Treat That

Started this discussion. Last reply by ConnieW Oct 5, 2014. 124 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

Hi Ellen-Thanks for your uplifting message. I do try to make it thru each day. One day at a time. I do not sleep well and spend the next day in a fog. My BS are becoming weird. If I go to sleep with a corrected high # I can drop to 50 by morning. I even called an endo. I am on his waiting list. I haven't seen one in many years. I basically have been doing all my insulin calculations myself. I hope you are improving each day. How are the furry ones ? Jim has been cat sitting for a resident here who us in Fl. The cat "Lucy" is a tuxedo like my Zorro, very friendly. I have seen her a couple of times. Her "Mommy" will be back next week. Hopefully, Spring will really arrive soon. It is still quite chilly. Take care of yourself. I think about you frequently. Susan

Hi Ellen. I saw you put up some pics ion Facebook.
How have you been? I think winter is over for Minneapolis - snow is gone and today we're at about 50 degrees. Nice.
I found out last week that I have some significant arthritis in my right ankle. First plan of treatment is to do nothing, and it seems to be working as the pain is less. I was pretty concerned, being that walking is the only way I get around. The podiatrist that I saw was very kind and seemed to know what he was doing. I hope so.
Have a great weekend.

Lots how those fur babies doing ?? Have they bonded and started the race and play around the house with fur going everywhere ? I got my little spray bottle out and filled it with water and when mine turn from play to fighting they get a light spray to break it up. Mine groom each other and sleep together like the picture below. Sweet !
I hear the birds singing like they are trying their best to bring in the Spring Time ! They are ready and so are we !! :)

Why I am Glad I Have Diabetes. Really!

I have several chronic conditions, autoimmune problems, and organs that are messed up and make me miserable. Still there is no disease that is as humbling as diabetes. It demands respect. In its "bag of tricks" it has the ability to torture you in small ways if you do not cooperate with it. It carries a big gun and you know it will use it if it has to. It will cut you a break if you listen to it, do its bidding.I have almost died several time, been on the brink of insanity due to pain, and I…See More

I am not the only one that does it, does unhealthy things when I am nervous and anxious.? No. I ate lunch yesterday with a friend who is a Type 2. Although he as lost over a hundred pounds, he had a huge hot dog smothered in onions, cheese fries and a diet coke for lunch. This was while he was explaining to me that he feel so bad he went to the ER last night. I can guarentee he will feel worse once this meal hits. He is a culinary artist and knows a lot about diabetes. The last time he was…
