Diabetes. It's Like Another Limb..

I apologize for how weird this is about to sound.

So, about 6 months ago, I broke my pump's clip and still haven't gotten around to purchasing a new one. Now, if I have pockets, this poses no issues. If I do not, I have to get creative....if my pants are tight enough, I can usually just put it under my waistband. Sometimes, I just put it in my bra. Anyways, a couple days ago, I had my pump tucked into my waistband. I was going to the bathroom and instead of pulling down my pants, immediately remembered to remove my pump from the waistband...then pull down my pants. That got me thinking. At this point, diabetes is so second nature. It's something I think about constantly, but it's almost subconsciously. Sometimes I can't even remember if I bolused for my last meal....usually I did. :-)

It's crazy to think that I'm on my ninth year of diabetes. My Dianniversary (diabetes anniversary) was on June 22nd. Honestly, I was at a Yankees game and completely forgot about it. At first I felt a sense of sadness that I forgot about it, but I like to think of it as a good thing. Diabetes is something I've learned to live with. "It's like another limb." I think about it constantly, but a great deal of it is subconscious. Over the years, I've managed to go on and live life without must hesitation. Sure, when I was at the Yankees game I had to think about how must insulin to give for my ice cream cone and I had to test at one point...but those were minor thoughts. I was still able to go to and enjoy the baseball game without thinking too much about this stupid disease.

It's crazy to think of how far I've come since diagnosis nine years ago. Bring on year ten!


  1. Here's to a fantastically full, fun, exciting, and awesome year ten! :-)

  2. From 2002 to 2019, I was battling this terrible disease called Diabetes, I couldn't afford so many things, as I was spending about 70% of my income on treating diabetes and liver problems. little did i know that my medications were the main cause of this issue. After spending tons of money nursing my diabetes, my wife’s friend messaged her on facebook,  Sarah told her about  the  great herbalist Dr  James,who uses herbs and roots extract to cure diseases that have been said to be incurable by drugs and injections from Nigeria in west A frica, my wife explained to Dr.James what’s going on with me, and Dr.James asked what i have been using, after my wife explained to him, he asked if i was having blurred vision, kidney issues or any other complications, my wife told him i had blurry vision and liver issues, and he confirmed that the medicines i have been using is the cause of the complications. That was when it occurred to me that my doctor had changed my medications 5 times within the space of 12 years. I took my time to read about the side effects of the medicine i was using, lo and behold, I was shocked.
    After 2 days, we ordered Dr.James  natural  herbs cure for Diabetes treatments and he also gave some directives on what to do, in a 4 days time , the supplements arrived in the States, and my husband started using the herbal medicine in accordance with Dr.James directives. so my husband used the herbal medicine accordingly as he was told. After the completion of the treatment on the 4th week, with  Dr.James herbal medicine, from 2019 till date, my husband  has been feeding normally like everybody else. After I saw these changes in 2019, I told some people I know about  Dr. James herbal mix medicine in west Africa , they used it and told others about it and the good news about Dr.James herbal healings keeps spreading.
