Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

I want to wish everyone a happy thanksgiving because some of us dont have family to go home to or some of us just cannot afford that plane ticket . I just want to tell everyone I am so thankfull and I remember to count my blessings . I want to thank My Mother for having such a wonderfull daughter LOL !!! Hey you know I had to throw something in there to make you laugh my dears . Just remember as you are gathered around the table tommorow that there are still places in the world that dont have enough food . I will remember those that are no longer with us in my prayers as well and those that are suffering because those family members were lost too soon . I will also pray and be thankfull for those of you who keep me entertained daily with your wonderfull blogs . thanks so much and god bless .

Im not impressed either

Well as of late I am not impressed with the big d and I dont mean Dallas !!! LOL !!! It rears its ugly head while making plans and making dinner , dont understand exactly why it has to do that ,but I guess we are not supposed to understand are we ? and that there is no argument that it is hard to live with every moment of every day . I am sure some of us handle it better than others or do we just cope better than some ? dont really have any answers and I dont think that drs do either . And have you ever seen a more food consious bunch than us t1s or those that love us and take care of us ? these are just some of the things that make me go hmmm.... well I will leave it there for today . As usual be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider.

hey hey kids guess who's blood sugar is low again

This has been a week of lows and extremely and I am extremely impatient with things like this . I try to take my mind off of it .I read books like a fiend . Im scared for thursday because we will not be eating at home we have made a plan to do the restaraunts because we dont want the mess and the fuss of cooking at home and plus what of the leftovers we hate them . so I guess i will be more so keeping a closer eye on my bgs especially on thursday . Just think that christmas is right around the corner . we dont celebrate christmas and no Im not jewish we just dont celebrate for various reasons I do however attend christmas mass and that will take up a good part of the day . Im so gratefull for that and i do so enjoy my christmas mass . But at the same time I will be thinking of the familys that have a first christmas without someone they love and will have to go through other christmases without them . That has to be the hardest part of christmas is not seeing that special face that you used to see there . so often my mind floats back to those ppl who are no longer with us but are on the right hand of god and living in Heaven and waiting for us at the gate . Oh well hopefully things will straighten out and the lows will go away and normal will return soon . One can only hope . Well be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

I did early morning mass

I was up before the light this am getting ready for mass . This morning mass was very quiet and then i came home unfortunately feeling empty and sad . I think the mass service could have been a little lighter or maybe it was me I dont know . well I finally got some candy in this house and some juice . Yeah I actually went to the grocery store and took care of this . I was going to go to mass this evening but opted out because it became rather dark , rather quickly due to a storm and then it blew over . Well that is what I get for skipping mass . Oh well kids we will talk later and remember to be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Would"nt you know

Well today has been a day of lows and would'nt you know I cannot find a blasted piece of candy anywhere in this house or in my purse and I am out of juice ? How does one forget to get juice and candy ? Im like what in the world was I thinking at the grocery store ? How could I have been so stupid ? Man did I blow it at the grocery store this week friends . How does one do that knowing that these things are so important . I am so mad at myself . I wish I had a better memory and then the dogs are being a pain in my butt . They bark at every little sound they hear and it drives me nutts . I got an invite to go riding horses today and had to turn it down of course because I was scared to get out there in the middle of no where and decide to have a low . Im tired of making plans and then have to back out because diabetes rears its ugly head again and bites me over and over again . I get disgusted with it and have had enough of you diabetes and how you intrude into my life . Oh well friends just ranting and raving . Have a great day and be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

A great saturday and sunday

Well I wore my t shirt with pride on saturday and not one person stopped me and asked me what my shirt meant . Kinda sad really cause ppl are so in tuned to their own lives and really busy . Oh well that is just me I guess . I have not been able to get a picture because it seems like my camera never wants to work when I want it to work LOL !!! also on sunday went to parrish and father Mike asked me how the parrish could help Holli Whites family and I made an announcement and let them know to contact either me or father mike and he will give you the addy to send it to . Your check that is or if any of you want to send flowers or cards . I hope they make it to where they are supposed to go . I was so glad my church family never lets me down they always care . Children are our future and they need so much help now a days and growing up without a mom is not easy . I hope we get to hear more about Hollis girls and how they are doing . I just know that this thanksgiving and christmas will not be easy without their mom and I will pray extra long for them that they can make it through what will be the hardest christmas of their little lives . Lets us all say a special prayer for them this season . Well be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Today is World Diabetes Day

Hello everyone today is world diabetes day . I was a t1 before there was a world diabetes day. I have a 25 yr old son who is t1 . In those days meters were the size of tvs and you sure could not manage diabetes day to day on your own . The drs did not like that back then . We have so many things to be thankfull for this world diabetes day .

Thursday, November 12, 2009

Okay now I am really confuzzled

Well first off I would like to know how in the blue blazes one meter can read a 260 and then another meter read 114. Wth ? i know what I am doing i have been doing the d thing for many moons LOL !!! No cracks over age here please and believe me when I say I have heard them all . all I know is I dont have the $ to keep testing twice and I am another one who uses the control solution everytime I open a new vial of strips . I know these strips aint cheap. talk about frustrations . I am doing everything right and this mess is still going strong Ugh !! sooner or later I am sure i will be seing an endo and the endo will fuss me out about other things ,than what I came for . If that is the case they can be sure I will not be back and will find another endo to handle my problems . The only problem is that I have to pay out of pocket for any medical stuff I do because I cannot afford health insurance . Which I might add is a total other problem and I will blog at some other point about that . Enough of my soapbox kids . Be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

This has been a wild day

well today has been a wild day !!! I think we shall have pizza for dinner , love pizza but sometimes it does not love me lol !!! well anyways I was parking the car when I pulled into the post office today . Then all of a sudden an older man in a truck kept trying to back his truck into the space beside me , however I am so glad I was in the car still because he almost took my passenger side out . He was not even looking . when I got out of my car I banged his truck to get his attention and he screamed out "I cant hear you I am half deaf " . I was like why are you driving then ? I told him he had almost taken out my passenger side . then he says to me well my insurance would have taken care of it , I have plenty of money . Of all the nerve some ppl just really dont get it do they ? I mean he must not have any family because I know if my dad had trouble hearing he certainly would not be driving anywhere putting someone in danger . I wish some ppl would think before they get behind the wheel . I have a tendancy to test my bg before i get behind the wheel just to make sure and give me that piece of mind . well guys I have had quite a day .

D Blog day

Well November 14th is world diabetes day and I find it amazing that half of the major metropolitan areas are not doing anything special for world diabetes day . I cannot believe that , it just goes to show you that in the grand sceme of things that diabetes is put on the back burner so to speak . It shows you that diabetes is a very little thought about disease in the big order of things . So if someone can understand why diabetes is such a little thought about disease . I would like to know why . We work so hard to bring it to the fore front and yet major citys in the country do nothing to bring it to the fore front . I think alot of people perpetuate myths about diabetes such as the tv show "modern family " on Abc . Hallie at "welcome to my world " informed me of this and you all know i just had to give them my opinion about perpetuating a myth right ? I think this is why most of us have such a harder row to hoe than most , so to speak . Okay well I did my part for today and yes my numbers unfortunately are still all over the place kids . Be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider . Take care and blessings .

The last two days

Wow the last two days have really been hard to get through . I have had bgs all over the map and just dont seem to be able to get it in hand . Hope fully I will soon and of course I ate some peanut butter without thinking and this went hand in hand and shot my bgs all to hell and back and I hate that . One minute I am a 164 and the next min I am 110 and this is from two different meters so who knows which one is right ? I sure as hell dont and at this point really dont care . I have just really had it with diabetes and wish it would go away . I totally know how the rest of you feel when you see these crazy numbers too . Guess we all have days of crazy numbers and i can truly say that it is probably totally my fault for eating peanut butter when i know that my bgs just cannot handle peanut butter . I mean I dont eat red meat anymore because it seems like I cannot digest it at all . which at times in the past has irritated many a dr , more than I care to count. Oh well I cannot make everyone happy at the same time right ? I mean it is not as if I am not trying cause I really am . I guess I am just frustrated with trying to always remember things . Oh well take care out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

I have a heavy heart today

My friend Wendy has a heavy heart today and I know she is sad and I really want to find words to comfort her and i cannot find the words and it bothers me . I wish I could go over to her house and give her a hug and cry with her if it would make her feel better . I guess all of this piled on top of me . I got a phone call last night from a friend who lives in ky still and she said that her son had been killed in afganistan and now I am totally at a loss to say anything to her as well except that I was very sorry for her loss . My words have left me and I have never ever felt like this before that words have left me . I will end here today . I m just not going to be any good today . God loves all of us remember that folks .
