Wish to see you in poetry club,love your kind smile
Little kids with diabetes are amazing to me and have such courage. When I was 8 and diagnosed I think it might have been easier as tight control was not even known about. I had one shot in the a.m. and went about my day, snacking and eating my meals and went totally by how I felt, easier, but I am sure I was high most of the day, oooo and ended up in the ER too many times, my poor parents. Well anyway Chicago is beautiful, I live in a suburb. My husband was in CA last week and this week he is in GA, poor guy. Weather today here was to die for, humdity has left us and it was low 80's all day, did your husband tell you that??!! :)
Thank you for the good wishes. You have certainly been through the mill. I have to smile about the shared experiences of visitors. But today I spent a good amount of time laughing with one of my grandsons. He just loves Chuck Norris and brought his new Chuck Norris book over to read to me. This was the funniest thing I have heard for a long time. The house was full but everyone came to see what was going on. I will have to find out the true name of this book. It is worth buying for the laughter. It was so nice to see everyone and the kids. I am tired and will go to bed early, but I feel stronger and am no longer afraid. I have received so much caring and support from so many people and have met new ones like you. I truly appreciate the friendship and sharing and support Our family here means so much to me. I am so glad you are part of us and my new friend.
Blessings be to you
don't i know it. i was between insurance's for two months. if my doctor hadn't given me samples from the office i would have gone without. i'm still waiting for the new insurance to give the ok. i should know tomorrow, so that means i've been without all week-end. my bs shows the difference.
Lisa, great start to your profile! And I love to see you've joined so many groups. Just to introduce myself, I'm MelissaBL, one of the admins. I'm a teacher myself, and a type 1. Glad to have you aboard.
You know, you might ask Kristin here about Hashimoto. I think I read where she was talking about being diagnosed with it.
I am sorry about the CAD. Very Sorry. It seems like a terrible burden to bear doesn't it? I am really looking forward to hearing about you and your experiences, You are so young to be haviing that problem too. I am sure you have an excellent regimen that I could probably benefit from and learn some pointers. I have taken such good care of my diabetes, but all these problems I have were here first.
I will have more time when I get back home. Right now, family is kind of flooding me. I am very happy to see them, but it only leaves very early or very late time. So I will definitely catch you when I am back. Take care. Blessings be to you
Your story is encouraging. I have recently been writing about the need for type 2's to face their condition and manage it, at my monthly column at http://www.dlife.com/dLife/do/ShowContent/daily_living/Viewpoints/grubb_bio.html. It's always good to see another type 2 join TuDiabetes.com
thanks for the heads up lisa on the byetta. i was thinking our own blood wouldn't hurt us. it only has happened that one time. if we have surgery they will sometimes have patients come in ahead of time and take blood so they have it in case they need it so why should it hurt us in our pens. that was my thought at the time, but then what do i know. glad to hear i wasn't off the mark.
have a great sunday.
Thank you so much for the support and energy. I really appreciate it. And welcome to our big and loving family. It means so much to me that people who didn't even know me the day before can care enough about me to offer comfort. This is what Tu diabetes does for us. It brings us together and we can immediately start sharing the good and the bad and whatever we each need.. I am happy you are one of us now Lisa and i look forward to talking to you and getting to know each other.
One of my daughter's teaches highschool art and photography. And my daughter-in-law teaches kindergarten also.
I hope your diabetes is going well for you. and will look forward to getting a chance to talk again later on.
Blessings be to you.
