Richard, in just a bit now, you will see the chat room moved up higher on the main home page. then, just before the speakers are ready, a large video screen will appear just above the chat room. emily will tell us to refresh our screens just before it starts. I do this by clicking on "HOME" on the top banner. we will all be listening and watching the speakers, and if you have a question, you can type it in the chat room, and emily will relay the question to them. it should be really good, so I hope you make it! anyway, if you dont, later the recoding of it will be available for you to watch..
Dear Richard, With my health it is good too..but last year I found out I was depressed and I went to find help..the psychologist told me I had a diabetes burnout...and it did me good to talk about it, I never talked about my diabetes..cause people in the Netherlands think it is nothing..just injecting insuline and then all is good..only my boyfriend and son knows it sometimes sucks..So I searched the internet and found your book, I was happy to read it...and I like the facts about diabetes in the back of your book..and very interesting about the c-peptide in human and animal insuline. I never heard about that before. But they will probably not do research on that, cause I found very few links about it on the internet..
Anyway..hope you have a lot more healthy years..and hope to keep in touch here. I hope I do have strong genes too.
Hello Richard, thank you for adding me as a friend. I did not know about this website. But glad I found it, there is no such thing in the Netherlands where I live. I just finished reading your book, and I loved it..and it gives me hope for the future. How are you now? Kind regards, Peggy Sue
Hello Richard, thank you for the friendship! You are an inspiration. I see how long you have had D and how amazing your a1c's are today. I just started to read your book on here. Thank you for sharing!
Greetings Richard.... I read on Kathy's page that your wife was unwell following a tic bite....is she better now?? Those have a way of escalating into something serious rather quickly at times.
All the best....linda
Hi Richard. How are you doing? No snow here in Minnesota and people are whining for want of a "white Christmas".
Temp in the high 30's. Lovely.
Was Anita's treatment for lyme disease successful? A few years ago I had a friend who went undiagnosed and ended up in the wheelchair. After she was properly treated, it took over a year of rehab for her to get back on her feet. She is fine now.
Here's wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Richard, of course you may read my blog. Thank you for the nice compliments. I don't know what I'd do without my online friends.
Kelly Booth said she knows you. I do also. She is one well-informed and knowledgeable lady.
BTW, your grandkids are adorable.
