Ow, ow, this hurts…

Apparently, I have somehow, I don’t know how, developed a pinched nerve, probably in my neck. This pinched nerve has the ability to cause pain all the way down my right arm, along with pins and needles feelings in my fingers.

After three weeks of the above pain, I saw my PCP on Friday and that’s what she thinks I’m suffering from. X-rays were done and a PT appointment is scheduled.

It hurts. It’s annoying.

But, Advil helps and since living on it (the Advil) for the last 3 weeks, I’ve had some great blood sugars. Seriously, the total daily dose thing on the Ping shows mine at much less than usual.

I spent my morning watching the clock and thinking of Meri and her boys and her family.

I spent my afternoon with my husband trying to keep the construction tent in our driveway from doing the Wizard of Oz thing, flying up into the sky. He emptied the tent. One of the construction guys came over and they parked the tractor in the tent and then tied the tent to the tractor. That should work. I hope.

The rain arrived this evening and the lights have been blinking for the last half hour or so. We can hear the fire alarms from our local fire station (several miles away) and they’ve been going off many times in the last hour. If you have power (we do, right now…) our electric company posts the outages online. We live where the one red dot is…

Endo appointment this week!

Losing Friends

I found all these wonderful people with d-connections beginning in 2005 when I was diagnosed with LADA.

They are wonderful! They’ve answered questions. They’ve calmed me down. They’ve sent me stuff I need. They’ve commented on this blog. They’ve met me. They’ve become friends of the bestest kind.

The problem…

This weekend, the husband of one of them, Ryan, died.

It sucks, big time sucks. Meri posted one of the fantastic photos of Ryan, and I sat and prayed on Sunday morning while looking at his great smile. And then, that afternoon I read that he died Sunday morning.

Finding friends in the DOC has been MasterCard priceless. Meri is one of those friends. I’m not a parent with a diabetic child but she is one of my favorite people. She encouraged me! As most know, she has 4 sons, 3 have Type 1 Diabetes. And she wrote to me with positive, You Can Do This comments.

Whenever I post, I’m reminded of the book, The Little Prince. My favorite part?
“You must be very patient,” replied the fox. “First you will sit down at a little
distance from me–like that–in the grass. I shall look at you out of the corner
of my eye, and you will say nothing. Words are the source of misunderstandings.
But you will sit a little closer to me, every day . . . “

Having Diabetes is not fun. Finding friends in the DOC who take the time to encourage others fills me with love for all of us. Losing one of these friends, makes me very, very sad.

So, let’s all sit a little closer to Meri and her four sons, and show them our love.

The spam, just the spam…

The spam comments that get caught by WordPress’ Akismet are amusing, annoying and the websites attached to them can be ewww gross.

Anyway, I find it amusing that my small town d-blog gets spam. Although, maybe they think I’m stupid. In any case, I’m grateful that WP catches them.
