Meds. Locked and loaded. It’s the diabetes life y’all. I know people who take more prescriptions than I do. Thanks to insurance and discounts. This is a price you pay for getting older sometimes.


Better Care


I went to the doctor today for a 3 month check. Lets say he let me know how I need to take better care of myself. My A1C is high, and my weight is up. Both are bad things for a diabetic. Fortunately my blood pressure is in check. So I have to do a better job of caring for my disease. If left un-checked diabetes does seriously bad things to the body.

I am grateful for my health insurance so it will make it easier to deal with the diabetes. There are folks who don’t have any sort of health care plan.

Friends your encouragement would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A Diabetes Update


It’s been awhile since my last post about my living with Diabetes. My doctor at my last appointment with him raised my Metformin dosage from 1000mg to 2000mg, he has kept me on two other drugs too. My A1C is improving but its a work in progress. Having Diabetes isn’t a death sentence but you have to make some adjustments to your life. The medications are supposed to control your blood sugar but in the process they can do strange things to your body.

There is still work to do to get things where they need to be. I do want to thank my doctor for his counsel and help. Since I don’t have insurance Walmart has been a place to get inexpensive drugs and testing supplies. To all my fellow Diabetics, keep on going. 

Diabetics on Tumblr


There seems to be a good community of diabetics on Tumblr. Its good to have support for your condition from others around the world. Sharing your story about diabetes can help others deal with it better. We have to take care of ourselves, meter our blood sugar, take our medication and watch what we eat. The key thing is to live with the disease, not hang your head in shame. People from all walks of life have it but they are striving to keep it in check. 

The diabetes tag on Tumblr is a great resource where you can read more about the many people with the disease here.
