I am sorry that I disappeared without warning, but I developed more health issues than I could handle so I stopped the computer and tried to get better. Nothing is worse than complaining, and especially about a bunch of other chronic illnesses when this site is for diabetes, and my list is way too long.
I spent a month in the hospital, discharged two days ago, and have an extensive outpatient schedule, so I will be spending a lot of time in DC, that to me is a nice idea. I found the VA Hospital to be awesome once I got into the system, just a bit far away.
Thanks friends for all the messages of concern on my page and also for patience, and especially for knowing I would be back eventually.
I am learning from pain that you create your own path rather than following one.
No matter what, I try to remember this saying, I think it might have been SpongeBob who said ~
"I rise like a phoenix from the ashes of my pathetic life."
I got this from one of his cartoon shows when my son was a kid and we still say it today and laugh whenever things get out of control...
Of course, I could not invite anyone to my page until I got rid of the autumn leaves and rolled out for December although no snow here in Virginia yet it is getting chilly!!!
I missed you all , and believe me,I have been lurking for a few days, just on so much medication that I wanted to make sense when I said "hello" again.
…but not so bad that I can’t appreciate being back online! Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday Season.
I put a new liver, pancreas, gall bladder and a few new vertebrae on my wish for Santa and am re-gifting all the stuff in my body that doesn’t work, just kidding! Good to be back.
