I have a friend from college who has MS. She is the only person I’ve sent my blog to. My husband knows about the blog but has said he thinks of it as “mine,” and so does not regularly read it (unless I force him to). I have not told our sons, or friends. It’s almost like my diary. But I sent it to this friend, whom I haven’t seen in years, after we began communicating via email. It’s been fun to keep in touch. And yes, Vivian – tonight I sent her your blog address.
Today she wrote:
Enjoyed your fall pics & have enjoyed reading your blog! Sometimes it makes me laugh out loud. The one about you taking your dad to a non-accessible doctor’s office was typical. None of my doctors have tables that are low enough for me to get on. Too many old offices. I think the most irritating thing about dealing with those things is to go somewhere that claims to be accessible & is not. My husband continues to remind me that accessible does not mean convenient. I can’t tell you the number of service elevators & back doors through the kitchen I’ve been to.
Sounds like diabetes is tough. Also sounds like it has a mind of its own & sometimes, regardless of your being good, it whacks you over the head. Keep up your good attitude!
So – my thought this evening is – that although I whine that people just don’t understand diabetes, I have to be honest, there’s much that I need to learn about other diseases also.
