I'm feeling uplifted by my SparkPeople family.

Monday, August 13, 2012

I'm feeling uplifted, with all I've been reading and trying to learn. There's so much that I have to learn. I need to learn a lot about diabetes, and the foods, and how much. I can't go to a diabetes clinic, as I live too far, and I'm unable to get there. And I do want so much to learn, for my health. I can't afford to be buying books, as well as my sight is going. Don't know when they will do the cataracts. Seeing doctor on the 23rd. I have to really strain my one eye, to read or write anything. The other eye, which was my better eye, only sees fog. I never realized that when your eyes are not seeing well, it really messes up with thoughts and memory. Go figure.
I'm so glad that I'm with Sparks.
Thank you all.

    Back again!

    I hadn't looked at the date of your blog, Dee. Still, I am glad to have read it & since you recently joined a team I am on, that you are still at SP.

    I enjoyed visiting your Spark page & looking at the pictures section.

    I hope that we become fast Spark friends! emoticon

    God bless!

    Dee --- I do believe (from everything I have "heard" here at SP) that the diabetic challenge is a very helpful one to engage in.

    Do you have a library near your home? If so, you might wish to check there for large print books (or better, yet, books on CD), that will supply you with useful information.

    Do you have family or church family nearby? If so, maybe someone from one of those groups would be willing to help you find (& read aloud for you & discuss with you) helpful materials on the Internet.

    Also, I find enlarging the print on the Computer screen very helpful at times. I am sure that that is not a new thought for you --- however, if I am wrong, please do try it!

    I wish you every success in coping with the health concerns you are faced with.

    God bless!

    Good Morning emoticon !

    When I joined Spark People I joined the 8 week diabetic challenge! I've had diabetes for 7 years, and have struggled off and on.

    BUT, by following the program and learning and relearning some new habits, 3 weeks into the program - I AM OFF INSULIN!!!

    The program is slow and a lot of info to start slow habits and retain information learned.

    Have a great day!
