hi Sparky, how are you today? glad to see you out and about doing the welcomes. I had my annual physical yesterday and it's never a happy day. a1c 6.3 so the doc is happy. gained a pound or two, ouch. hope you get some answers soon. just talking to some friends at a quilting workshop today and one has a friend who's getting the same "no answers" routine as you. hang in there, hugs and more hugs for you and Sharon.

Thanks for the birthday wish. First of the day.
I am going for blood tests this morning. I am now 6 weeks free of Diabetes symptoms. In 2011,2010,2009 I was on up to 180 units of Insulin day. I was told in December of 2010 I was a brittle diabetic.
After a long journey (30 years) which I pray has ended. I am medication free. Raw food and Juicing. Organic and clean foods.Proper supplementation, Conquering sleep apnea with a C-pap and a dental appliance. Yoga, exercise and of course Gloria the Angel and my soulmate that supports me through all of this.
I came to the computer to do my daily meditations and simply had to answer your wonderful birthday wish. I hope this can be an inspiration for others that have struggled.Keep a positive and optimistic outlook. Type Ii Diabetes can be cured. If I knew what I knew today, 30 years ago, I never would have developed full blown Diabetes.
