Coeliac, The Other Other Related Condition

I have had diabetes for over 10 years now and as we all know it's pretty tough going. It has it's ups and it's down, but in general I manage. Keep the calm happy exterior us diabetics often have and lead positive lives anyway. The show must go on !!!!

But lately the show has been more like The Producers than Cats. I've been slow, I've been sluggish, but hey it must be the diabetes. I've been tired, I've been losing weight ,but hey diabetes has its complications. I've been chronically…

Diabetes Blog

So after reading Manny's blog--I will try to post here more often

Right now I am fighting off something. BG on a rollercoaster (from 49-290 and everything in beteween more than once in the last couple of days) ..felt like crap the last 2 days--giving in and going to doc tomorrow.

I'd rather be working on Christmas presents--more washing, ironing, cutting, sewing and quilting to do!

Working on my to-dos for the grandaughter (that list will never end I know--yes I am… Continue

So I now know what it's probably not....

My hospital appointment today was lengthy but a relief, this is mainly for me to look back at, but feel free to read on

My Dr R said she thinks my symptoms (raised ANA levels, swollen joints, pain in joints, extreme tiredness) aren't lupus and probably not RA, as I have no calcification or erosions. I had a raft of tests, mobility, bloods, xrays the lot :oS

I have a cracking great bruise, it was a bleeder oh boy!

I'm not a very good patient though, I don't… Continue

I'm tired of being tired... and having to explain why

"Wow James... you sure sleep a lot..." I just heard this accusing comment from a friend after telling her I needed to take a nap.

It just gets old explaining that I'm not lazy; my 61 year old body just gets worn out from the blood glucose roller coaster ride. Then it's the 20 questions from someone who doesn't have this wonderful disease... did you eat too much sugar?... are you taking your medicine?... have you thought about losing some weight?... oh, Type 2, so its your lifestyle… Continue

Ever just get P***ED OFF? Not for new diabetics..

I mean I of all people know how important it is to be 'up', to keep popsitive and to never stop fighting for (for lack of a better word to cover it all) Tomorrow. And we all know that by tomorrow, I mean feeling human, hurting less, minimal pain, less daunting future's and simply to be here tomorrow to watch our kids grow up or our lives go forward.

I know Type 1's as a whole are more of an independent group, we have to be. And I know in my own history and personality I take that sometimes… Continue
