oh god, really? general rant

Posted on July 3, 2014 at 5:05pm 4 Comments

last week i went to the endo. for nothing, basically, but im keeping my appointments and going, even if its just to say that yes, the half unit pen is working fine, etc.

no, i cant have a pump, no, i cant have any more than the three test strips i get per day. thank god for my ma, who sends me cheap strips for my relion meter.

i arrive at the swimming pool late and bitch about the crappy medical system in spain-only crappy cuz i cant have what i want/need to take care of myself…

Thanks for the note about the write a novel in 30 days contest. I might even get enough courage to try out a writers workshop. I see they have a group that meets fairly close to me and since we are all Hoosiers, surely we wont fight to much? Well we might fight a lot. After all we are Hoosiers. LOL

Hello you, yes I'm on my way over with the Kerrygold, although Dairygold is far nicer, and it has to be the one wraped in the foil type wraper. Hope you are keeping well, I'm trying to step up the ex a wee bit.
