Still feeling special

Postby Forlyd » Wed Jul 11, 2012 9:28 pm

Hello Susan,
You have every right to feel "Special". Having reached, what in our terms is, a Ripe Old Age, you are special. I feel much the same having reached my 64th. last Friday.
As Paul has said, Diabetis is an ailment which can be reasonably controlled with medication. Compared with what you were born with, is diabetis really so huge a problem ?
Take it in your stride and enjoy your new found "Old Age" for many years to come.
Best wishes and love from Lydia.

thank you
I am coming to terms quite well with the diabetis now especially with the wonderful support available on the web site forum. i think I just had a wobbly as it seemed at the time as the final straw and referance to my slight overweight etc made me feel like it was all my fault.

However all is good now. Following a low carb diet and have my next consultation next week so hope that goes better than the last!

:D :D :D :lol: :lol:
