We Don't Treat That

Started this discussion. Last reply by ConnieW Oct 5. 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

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

Ellen,

Have a Happy Thanksgiving. So far my Thanksgiving isn't starting off to well. Someone sideswiped my car in traffic yesterday and didn't even stop. It took off my rear view window on the drivers side. It will cost over $700. to repair. BAH HUMBUG.

However my favorite Indian Restaurant is serving complimentary Indian Turkey Dinner tomorrow. So things aren't looking too bad.

What are you doing for Thanksgiving this year? I am going to a friend of my mothers' families' house. It should be fun. They have a medium sized family. I bought a fruit basket for them today.

I hope everything's going along alright. I hope to hear from you soon.

Cathy

Hi Ellen-So glad to hear from you even though it is just a graphic. How are you feeling ? I haven't felt too well the past few weeks. My PD is taking it's toll on me. My BG have been OK for the most part. I still don't sleep too well and spend most of the day in a foggy state. I certainly hope you are feeling better. Guess what ? We sold our house. We have settlement this Thursday. It wasn't moving for 6 weeks even after we dropped the price. Then a young couple with a baby saw and loved it. Their offer was less than we were asking, but we don't want to keep it with winter coming. They had put an offer in for another house but it fell thru. They were pre-approved for a mortgage, so our deal went thru quickly. We love it here in our apt/cottage. We are settled and used to life around here. I joined a Bridge group, I haven't played in 11/2 years, but I remembered how to play. How are the furballs? Love to hear from you. 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

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.
