I was in the federal system, whwere if they had it there way , I would not be typing right now, so, I count my blessings to say the least.............................................................;O)
What kind words you wrote on my blog! I am touched. Thank you very much! My Mom would have told me that people like you and many others here on TuD are the type of people that the definition of the word "Wonderful" should be.
I saw that a few of you met up at EXPO. Wish I had gone this year, but it slipped by me somehow. I went to a meet-up this summer, but I'm mostly interested in connecting with other type 1s, and there were only type 2s there. I get a real boost from chatting with other type 1s - just knowing they're out there, living healthy lives and whatnot, keeps me motivated. Know what I mean?
Nice to hear from you. Sounds like you have your hands full! You know, I've never been plugged into the D scene, so I don't know what the JDRF has to offer. The best I can tell, though, is that this community is what's available. I hope there is a conference, but just not sure. If you're coming to PDX tell everyone so whoever can meet you from Portland does. Awsome to hear your response. Good luck on your studies! Virgil
I'll make it to one of those events one year. Currently baby & master's program (& dogs & hubby) take up all my time. Does JDRF host a big conference? That's what we really need. My mom figured out when I was young that ADA almost exclusively caters to T2's, so I don't bother with ADA much.
It was nice to meet you too Virgil and to hang out being our version of "normal" - that's a great way to put it. I'd like to meet Judith too, so we'll have to meet up when she returns. I posted a picture of the 3 of us from today. :)
Hi Virgil, depression is in check for the moment but flares up a few times in past 3 weeks. But it is getting to me when I spent time in ER on Thursday due to a real small blood clot that went from my right lung through my right jaw to brain. But at least my blood sugars are staying under 190 for now.
As for getting out of town, my travel wings have been clipped due to so many health problems and not being able to same too much money. But with what I have planned in the near future I should be able to get my credit cards payed off. Then I might be able to travel soon.
Take care and hope to hear from you when you get a chance.
Hi Virgil, thanks for the comment and wise words. i have found that taking it one day at a time is the only way I can really cope. Looking too far ahead is frightening and daunting for me. Thanks for your support, it means the world to me, knowing I am not alone. Stay well
