well, if you decide, just go to Twitter.com - your user name (handle) has to be unique, so I doubt you'll get @Kathy ! Lorraine is a big tweeter, as is some of the old guys you used to see around here all the time like Ninjabetic, Diabetic_iz_me, and pretty much everyone who blogs in the DOC. Whenever someone publishes a blog, there's a flurry of activity with everyone getting the word out. Here's our Group for tweeters


Lorraine wrote a good "getting started" post there.

Hi Hon...doing fine today. Thanks. Yes, the cat is the orange and white...Albert!! My Mom always named her cats after old boyfriends of hers, haha, so, she never had one named after a BF she had when I was about 5yrs old, he used to sing to her and take us out on the lake, buy me ice cream...so, I named the stray Albert. :) I am not sure if what I will have to have is a vitrectomy?? Have to find out in 6 weeks. Going to go rest now as it is cloudy and cold outside. Love ya and thanks for the messages. xo

oh, I was going to tell you something else. If you get really bored, have you ever tried Twitter? lots of TuD folk are on there, and especially those with blogs, where they get some good promotion. Manny is there all the time, he shares a lot more than just his diabetes, like what music he is listening to, and lots of other things he does. We have a Group here called "Twitterbetics" and Lorraine has a discussion there about how to get started. so if you decide to try it, let me know and I'll help you too. It can be addicting, and it's so much more than what you had for breakfast. my best friend promotes her business and her blog there, that's how I got into it.

yeah, I guess I have nothing to complain about. thanks, you have a good one too. I just spent half an hour doing Manny's name for the quilt, and I spilt water on it and the ink I was using for the letters ran all over. oh well.

Greetings, Kathy. Thanks for the welcome note. I am exploring tudiabetes site. Pumping for 8 days (never on insulin prior) and numbers remain very high. Reading/Google-ing everthing I can find. Concerned about he yo-yo of numbers and whether I can buy just thecammula/sticky patch somewhere. Many posts on tudiabetesspeak of re-use of resevoirs and tubing. Yet with tube and cammula packaged together how can that reduce waste and costs? I was a school administrator in Kimball pand nad good friends in Litch school. Did you know John Diere?

Hi Kathy, thanks for telling me about Robyn, I remember those lasers even though I had mine 20-25 years ago. Hyacinth, heaven! Our daffodils finally bloomed - it's about time! We are having some friends over tonight and we're going to roll out the bbq and grill a skirt steak.

Sweetie...thank you so much, you brought tears to my eyes. Today was not a good treatment. The injection to numb me hurt very bad....I do not numb enough, doctor said I have a very shallow socket, not enough tissue between eye and bone...tried to laser but I felt too much at such a high voltage, only made it to 287 zaps and he had to stop....will probably have to just have surgery and have all the clots/bleeding sucked out. Will find out in 6 weeks. Bruised badly and had to take vicoden and valium. Sat in the dark and rested....love you darlin and I cherish your kindness. xo

Good Morning,Kathy. Was I ever upset when I went to MY PAGE and found it in a mess. I guess it happened to several people. I tried and tried and could not get it to work. So I re-joined. I lost everything but it is not right. Seems funny to see me as a new member. Lakeland was 101 degrees. The convention was good but long. The State Queen lost 113 pounds and the State King lost 98 pounds. It was very inspiring. Through all of life's troubles errors struggles NEVER EVER GIVE UP..PUSH ON. I was bad. On the way home we went oit of our way to stop aT Bette's A1A Cafe where I had a Fishermen's Platter haddock shrimp scallops and New England fried clams with bellies YUMMY> I spiked a bit but worth it. How are you doing? I hope well. You sleeping better? I hope so. I am. I am feeling better than I deserve. Have a great day. HUGS,Reed

I don't know if music is that powerful. But I do think it happens. My son graduated high school with a young woman who went to college for music therapy. i talk to her every once in a while and she says that music is the second most powerful brain motivator. She says hot bread is the number 1 most powerful. She also says she has seen remarkable transformations of stroke patients using music, but like the movie it has to be their music. I think we put a sound track in our brain between 12 and 20 and that sound track goes with us forever. Even when we lose everything else. My mom before she passed was singing dont let the sun get in your eyes. One of the hits form 1952, I had never heard her sing that song ever. So she had an electrolyte imbalance and thought she was seeing her her grandmother in the room, and she was singing a dont let the sun get in your eyes. SO yeah, I do think there is a sound track in our lives.
