You look so young in your photo.. Today is my 71st birthday and can't recall how long I have had diabetes. Think I was type 2 for a very short period of time. Jumped right into type 1...Going out for dinner tonight with my brother. It's called the Texas Cattle co. here and here in Lakeland Fla. on your birthday the steak is free with a valid driver license. My brother can have my steak.. I am eating cedar smoked salmon and have been craving fish.. Enjoy the day ... eva
hi diabeticidol, my name is dobby ( not my real name) I am a very good friend of vikki pennigtons, I am sosorry and sad to tell you that my best friend vikki has passed away in her home due to complications of diabetes. she and I met on yahoo answers we were each others contact. when I became newly diagnosed last year vikki was the first person I told about it. she shared her knowledge of diabetes with me, told me of this site she belonged to and counseled me ever since. so I oringianlly came here just to inform her friends of her passing just in case they didn't know. I know many of you loved her as much as I did. and will be just as heart broken to hear of the news of her passing. but now that I am here and have become a memeber perhaps I'll stay. I miss her terriably and my heat is broken. how do I let her other friends on this site know about her passing? can you help. I am sorry I didn't know wherer else to post this since this is my first time on this site.
I'm probably a lot older than you are, but I just can't help but notice our simularities. I was also Dx in March of 1994. I LOVE the Rascal Flatts, and I also went to the AI concert. I went last year too, and to be honest, it was better than this years. Although you can't beat Cook, and Archy. Last year was more like a variety show, with different songs, and this year was a recap of all the songs we have already heard 10,000 times. Anyway, I also just recently, had Plantar facitis. I did not have surgey though, just $400 dollar orthotics, which worked wonders. Anyway, I saw that your last A1c was 5 something. Well, that is where we differ. Mine was 13.3. I HATE this disease, and do not want it anymore. So, I am taking a well deserved break. I have had 4 children, and they are all healthy, with my a1c being between 5-6! So, now some ME time. Well, we'll see ya later.
Hey you, sorry it has taken me so long to respond! My wife gave birth on September 10. 2008 to our 3rd baby and this one is a beautiful baby girl! In response to your question, a few years back I sponsered the ADA walk, through my beverage company that I sold. The product was Biosport...10 calories, 1 sugar and 2 carbs....Other than that I have not been as active as I would have like to have been!
