Had a great eye doc apt today, still good news, no glaucoma. Got another lecture on diabetes from doc's receptionist. She told me of a patient, young woman who had diabetes from early in her life. Had a baby when she was 23, spent 4 years sick in hospital and died after losing all her feeling in hands and feet by her early 30's.... it's not something to fool around with. And I know so many people who go in denial and think if they don't take their b.s., they're doing good....and we all know better...we can't burn the candle at both ends.... things are happening all the time in our bodies and we need to combine healthy eating and exercise patterns with good stress management to take the best care we can of this body God has given us...

Cold, BRRR.... did get to walk around the stores with my friend...

long day.... good nite....

    Yes, we do need to take care of ourselves. How can we stop being co-dependent and do this?

    glad you had a good eye doc appointment.

Diabetes is a silent disease. It is doing stuff without you even knowing about it. The more you stay in control, the less it can damage heart, eyes, kidneys, and a bunch of other stuff.

I am and always have been in good control and still it is affecting my heart and kidneys.
I have had diabetes for over 30 years, so even when you do take care of yourself it does do its damages over a long period of time living with it.
