The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes! Whoo! Whoo!

I am a Type 1 diabetic diagnosed back in the early 60's as a child.  I am living in Montreal, Canada and enjoy scribbling about diabetes from time to time. I’ve had my ups / downs just like any person would experience with going through life - diabetic or not.  My motto in life?  Diabetes does not control me – I control it!! 

You can find more posts/discussions at my Facebook page called "The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes" and also on Twitter under the name of FatCatAnna.  Feel free to follow me at both places or send me a private message!

  • Diabetes Hope Conference - Tuesday, May 21st
    Okay - so here's the deal - this is FREE - it's VIRTUAL (meaning you don't have to pay for a flight / train / bus / gas / yadda yadda yadda).   You just have to simply sign up at this link -  then sit back in the comfort of where ever you tend to do your D-OC (diabetic online community) stuff to take part in the first and hopefully not last event that Scott Johnson is moderating along with a other illustrious folks who are both active in advocating/medical/blogging in attendance.

    One of the topics of conversation will be about diabetic peripheral neuropathy(DPN) - this is something that so far hasn't plagued me even after almost 50 years since my diagnosis - but for many it is a daily torture session for them to deal with - and plainly a pain in the foot - but wait - it doesn't just affect that portion of your body - but EVERY part - internal organs / external.   The discussion will be about bloggers like myself - that talk about complications - and should we discuss it in open (you know my answers there - I'm an open book of honesty - sometimes too much for my own good).

    Hope to see you there!
