Hello! Thank you for having me as a friend stevie! I'm a wife of 33 years (hubby is also diabetic), mom to two grown children, a teacher, and before that an illustrator (still do some) and graphic designer. Keep in touch, ok?
I could be a lot better to be honest just having a bit of a hard time at work making me feel really down and sending my levels sky high as I write to you my level is 21.3 but ketons are low thank God.
Just stuck between a hard place and a massive rock at the moment.
I am glad your enjoying your volunteering it makes you feel a whole lot better when you helping others.
Yeah I knw most Americans do seem to be on the pump no I am an old schooler still using pens.lol kind of used to it having to take them since the age of 2 years old.lol
Yeah most ppl say I look young but dont let that fool you I am 26 now how time flies to quickly honestly.
I have not got much planned for the weekend just relaxing and taking it easy really,have fun with your friends its allway nice to catch up with them.Thank you for your lovely comments about my pictures and my music I am a bit like you dnt have much time to listen anymore I dnt think its anything to do with age more like time being short.lol
Yeah my new meter is great and very new think they just giving it out to a few dafne graduates to see how they get along on it the nurse was like it costs £170 pounds.(shock)
yeah i have made a friends on here that I can count on for support and encouragment as well as understanding,at a time I was at my lowest with diabetes they have helped me.? ive met a couple of nice people on this sight who i communcate with a lot .
Yeah I love walking esp at the high streets its so fun that I hardly sometimes notice how long/far I have walked but in the winter is so hard when all I want to do is keep warm at home.lol it does help with the numbers a lot I can tell you.
You 2 have a brilliant walk and an even better weekend watch out for the scary monster that might be around.lol
All is well on my side thank you for asking just working had a bit of a problem with my new meter but they sent my a new one thank god,its a new meter not sure if you got it or heard of it called the accu-chek aviva extra.(there is a picture of it on my profile.) it is pure magic it does graphs and all sorts it also helps with carb counting.
How are you?sorry to go on about the new meter.lol
Oh tell me about it I am keeping my fingers crossed would hate to get the flu,so get all ur winter gear in asap because its gonna get worse so they say.lol
How did your eye test go? Thats the test I hate most in the world give me a needle over eye tests anyday.
I know I mean why should they have to deal with so much headach when diabetes is more then enough I say,I honestly say usa members are the strongest ppl alive I would not be able to deal with it.When I hear how hard it is for them thats when I relise how lucky I am and should be more grateful.
Hoppies are tech stuff anything I can fiddle with I love phones and such things like that,I also love fashion shoes,clothes,bags very girly and I love the colour pinki.lol as I think you have noticed.lol
Hope all is well friend.xxx
Hello Stevie, Yes I do miss Muswell Hill sometimes, it has quite a village atmosphere in a strange way and I used to love walking around Ally Pally. Now I walk my dogs on Greenham Common everyday which is fabulous and something I spent my days sitting in an office staring at a monitor dreaming about, it's my 'me' time,I love being out in the fresh air.All the best, Catherine
Things are cold in Ealing to say the least I dnt blame you for getting the flu sometimes
I think I look like a bear the amount I wear to keep warm lol.
Yeah I did have my jab on friday so sorted out in that sense,how about you?
Are things any better?
Thanks about my page it tends to change with my mood so keep an eye out.lol
best wishes friend.
