The less I feel like doctors want to listen to me.



I have hit a wall in my search for a doctor who will acknowledge that I know just as much if not MORE than he does. This latest doctor is the worst! Not only is he the worst, he loves himself WAY TOO MUCH. He says that he is working with Minimed, consulting with them to change things, but the changes he suggests do NOT coincide with how I manage my diabetes. As a matter of fact, it leaves everything to the doctor…

UPDATE BLOG TO MY INTERESTED READERS

I am so sorry for ignoring all my friends that are wondering just how I am doing. It's been a really long 2 years (about!) and I was sure that most of you were bored with hearing about my amputation and struggle with life thereafter.

I have been in a rehab facility since March 3, 2010. Challenges with facility management regarding personal equipment not allowed, "speeding" in the hallways and confrontations with a fellow resident…
