"Without counting rechecking when I have highs or lows, approximately 120 strips. But it's usually closer to 150 ---- not near what my insurance allows ---- they think once a day is enough,,It's rather funny because the caseworker that…"
"I test 8-10 times a day, so that makes 250 a month on average, I get great control that way. I was wondering if you take your bloodsugar because you do not feel your lows or highs? I know some people have trouble with that and taking extra blood…"
Awesome, It's almost criminal that the disability system denies people the way they do...I certainly didn't even want to apply, I had a VERY good job, but it had become extremely unsafe for me to drive. So, what are you going to do. I still try to stay positive! Eric
Hello Robyn. I have been thinking of you and wondering how you are. Did you get a job? How are the eyes? Any more treatments., I am doing fine except for the knees. CAT has been in the hospital about 50 days. Finally home. I think a feeding tube. Hope things are well with you. HUGS,Reed
Hello Robyn. Thinking of you and wanted to pop in and say hello. Saw the eye doctor yesterday pressure in both eyes HIGH he was not concerned as I had cortisone shots in knees that pushyed me to BG 424 now 180. He could not be too concerned as he said see me in 6 months. I hope you are well and happoer. HUGS,Reed
Robyn/ I have been thinking about you. How did the appointment of the 28th go? Did they do more work? Did uou finally get your disability...there is mo reason why you shouldn't. Been thinking about and praying that things go well. HUGS,Reed
Hey there Robyn! I've been using Tudiabetes a bit more then I did for a while again and just wanted to check in and say Hi to some of the people I used to talk to on here :) I'm doing much better then I used to diabetes wise and staying very busy with school and piano. Hope you and your lovely family are doing great!
Thanks for the reply, Robyn. I'm glad you got a bit of a break, although I'm not sure why you would need a break from US wonderful tuD folks!? I know you are a fighter and that's one of the many reasons I like you, but still I wish I could wave a wand and make your financial woes go away. I'd say I'll share my lottery winnings with you, except for that little detail about my not having spare cash to spend on the tickets! But if some miracle does drop a load of cash on my head, I'll certainly be in touch with you and several others - at least once I recover from the concussion of having all that money land on my head! Well, it's really busy in this tax office now and being "functionally blind" as I was told yesterday, makes it sorta hard to read all the tiny numbers on my tax program and those programs just assume you wouldn't be doing tax stuff if you couldn't see so they don't let you augment the fonts one bit. I have the monitor on my desk in front of my face, but that means the keyboard is underneath it and hard to access. I got some contacts yesterday which help with distance but I can't read anything up close with them on so if I can't find some magnifying specs for that today, I'll have to leave the contacts for after tax too.
Anyway, nuff kvetching, I'll try to follow your lead and Fight my way through this next morass of medical mismanagement. See you in May!
Robyn,it was so good to hear from you. Sorry about all your ups and downs. I hope you win the court case. You should be on disability. I got the flu shot but I got a cold and cough that lasted weeks. Just had comjunctivitis in my left ete still using antibiotic drops. Crazy weather. Days in the 80's and then nights inthe 20's. Spring bushes all confused they are in full bloom now. I will be with you in spirit on the 28th. Praying all goes well. Take good care. HUGS, Reed
A couple of days ago I learned that the California State Assembly is considering AB-1893 Sharps waste, which in (if approved) will mandate that: “Sharps sold to the general public in California shall be sold with a sharps waste container Read on! →
