Oh Marie. Sounds like you've got it going on today. Hey maybe the stress your under and the toothache has something to do with your high numbers/ I know when I'm under stress it males me go skyhigh. Maybe you have an infection in that tooth and we all know what that can do to us. Your poor friend. Wish there was something I could do for her. Praying is the only way now
I'm ready to go back to work; going to college even for a two-year degree was a nice break after working for 30+ years, but I hope my full time student days are over with. At 50 I hope to see a retirement in my future.
Thanks Marie... The coastline had about a bit more than a meter of waves...they had about an hour head start for evacuation. Im in Manila...we are further from the coastline. We had been getting minor quakes though over here...I wonder if these quakes are intertwined fault lines since they are all around us...New Zealand, Indonesia, now Japan... Its very disturbing... I feel so so sad for people from Japan though...
Hey Marie, You doing any better today? I really hope so. I Had one of those blasted seizers yesterday and am convinced I done something weird to my back during in. My back decided to hurt right after it and isn't in the best shape today.
Hi Marie, I'm just finishing a two year computer IT degree (AAS). I was laid off from my job in 2008 and my company sent me and others to college if we wanted to go. I am working on my very last class this semester and am looking forward to going back to work. My degree is not so much about fixing computers as it is using them. I have had a basic networking class, two semesters of accounting, and many Microsoft office classes. Its more of a computer business applications degree.
I found TuDiabetes when researching... there are some oustanding, knowledgable posters here. I've learned a lot from reading the posts.
Our 14 year-old daugher was just dx about 6 weeks ago. Fortunately (odd choice of words) our neice (12) was dx about 6 years ago, so we have a great resource from my brother and sister-in-law.
We are moving to a pump in the next several weeks. I think a good part of the reason the dr. allowed it was because we had gotten ourselves educated quickly, and the whole family has taken ownership of the diabetes.
Choosing a pump was tough experience. In the end, my daugher wants the Ping...
OMG I hate it when I do that. Try explaining that to a Totally "well" person. My hubby tends to tick me off when that happens. His saying? "If you took better care of yourself that wouldn't happen" Huh? I'm doing the best I can SHUT UP!!!!!! I tend to tell him that too!
Hi Marie - I guess you are having this lousy rainy day too ! Tonight is supposed to be really bad. They expect flooding of the Delaware River not too far from me. ( Far enough, though) We are getting ready to go for R & R to Aruba next Monday. I guess another pat-down is in my future. I am anxious to see the sun for more than 5 minutes. I won't have access to a computer for the 10 days we will be there, so I won't be on line after Sunday. Just wanted you to know. Cat
Archie!!! I love that name. I grew up with both dogs and cats. We want so much to get a couple of cats but my one dog would just terrorize them. She's typically a nervous dog but when it comes to cats she goes on a mission. The other dog loves cats.
I'm so sorry that your hand is still such a problem. It's funny you mention that you hand't considered yourself a slow healer before. I hadn't considered myself one either until my knee surgery. Portions of the incision scar are still "in process" -- there was a time that I would have been perfectly healed by now. I'm sure you likely have but I'm going to ask anyway -- have you seen a surgeon about your hand? I'm wondering if there is something one could do to peel back a few layers of skin and get the rest of those nasty little spikes out.
I am on Linked-In. Fortunately, I'm super well connected and I have a lot of people tossing opportunities my way. I'm determined not to compromise and find the perfect situation. I have a preliminary interview next week with an Executive Recruiter about a Global General Counsel position that sounds very interesting. I'm hoping my voice comes back by then or else I'm going to have to do the whole thing like charades.
So far the rain hasn't been too bad here. I'm sure more is coming. Right now it's quieted down enough that the dogs for the dogs to calm down.
I'm laughing over Ed's two helpings last night. That likely did do it. Hopefully he'll be fine before dinner time tonight.
Thank you Marie! I look forward to getting to know all of you. I have been a diabetic since about 2005 but have just recently started taking insulin. There is alot I am going to need to learn. Have a great day!
Hey Marie! I was just thinking about you and when I went to the homepage I saw you were here. Soooo How's things there? I'm sooooo tired of cloudy and rain (it's done it here for 3 days now) I could cry! STOP IT NOW!!!!!!
