Hi! Anyone notice the hats on the ladies at the Kentucky Derby? Quite 'over the top' on some. Spent the day on the computer. Too much time on it I think.

Deb - We've been to New Orleans so many times it ought to be 'old hat' but we still relish the music and food festivals. Of course we pay our dues at the casino also. lol I'd love to go to Kentucky some time soon. I have a brother who moved there and a visit would answer two needs I have. Got it on the bucket list!

MormonNoMore - glad to see you are still among the living. Hope spring has sprung where you are and you are enjoying it.

Our garden is 'busting its buttons'. Recent timely rains have been just the ticket to keep everything growing. Squash will be ready to eat in just a couple of days, onions are wonderful snipped on top of just about anything, and tomatoes are trying to plump out the fruit on the plant. Still more to come! Boy are we lucky to have space for the garden and a great long growing season.

Off to a wedding out of town tomorrow. Will be away overnight. Home Sunday evening.Happyy weekend to you all!

Wednesday night. Have had some mega problems accessing this thread over the last couple of days. Determination won out...ta da!

Deb - definitely feel free to vent to your heart's content. Why is it when we have a problem the dr can't figure out it is because of our weight, etc.? Hang in there babe, the answer will surface one way or another. Just take care of yourself and know we are in your corner.

Leaving Thursday morning early and not getting back until Tuesday. Headed to New Orleans for the French Quarter Festival. Lots of music, food and people watching. I'll be thinking of y'all.

Check out the new announcement. Goodies for those on the huddle the week of 4/22. Practice up!

Tuesday morning. Had my consult with the cardiologist. Heart is fine, I'm just too fat, too outta shape, too lazy, need I go on? Have to start walking (Don't I walk already?) Blahblahblah. Doesn't help explain the fact that my stamina has been decreasing over the last several months, nor the 50 #s I've gained since my hysterectomy, the shortness of breathe, the pounding heart, the pains around my ribcage/diaphragm area and down my arm, the swelling ankles/feet. All this happening despite the fact that I go to aerobics and keep my A1c way under 7, just by watching what I eat.

I'm ranting. I'm sorry.

Hope you all had a better Monday than me. emoticon emoticon

Vicki - The best part of life is the laughter, you know! Don't they say you gotta laugh, or all you'll do is cry? At least that's my current philosophy.

All the tress & flowers & stuff is pollinating, I know 'cause I've been sneezing my head off this morning. Had a cardiac nuclear stress test this morning. Went in, no meds, no food or drink, & walked on a treadmill. Didn't take long before my BP was 204/110 and my heart rate was 164 beats/minute. Only took 2.5 minutes to get there. Breathing hard, chest pain, legs aching. Damn! I thought that after 3 years of aerobics I would be in better shape than that, although I've noticed my stamina decreasing over the last few months, right along with the weight gain I seem to have no control over. Buggers!!!! I should know next week, what the results of all these tests will be. emoticon

Hi, Monnie! The chat's with the beef. hehehe

Today, I'm feeling a little sluggish, and I'm not ready to make myself move. Yesterday, we had a downpour, but went grocery shopping anyway. Ugh. Now I'm feeling damp as well as sluggish. Double UGH! Bollox. Take me out to the pasture and just shoot me already. lol

Happy Friday everyone. April is just right around the corner...Sunday to be exact. Hope spring flowers and sunshine are the order of the day in your world. Be sure and get outside to take advantage of the sun and milder temps. We in Texas are already in the 80s so I expect that summer will be another bugabear.

Deb - Keep on keepin' on, my friend. Things have a way of working out the way they are supposed to. I went over to the SPRING CHAT thread and started 'talking'. Maybe we can move our conversations over there. Besides its another Spark Point for our daily activity. lol

Mormonnomore - Sorry to hear the depression 'monster' came on board and hope that today is a much better one for you. I, unfortunately, battle the 'monster' also on a regular basis. Try getting out in the sunshine and exercising a bit. Both are known to fight against...and win...depression. I'll watch for you over on the SPRING CHAT thread where we can talk a bit more. If you want to, Spark Mail me and perhaps we can commiserate, my friend.

Hi all - Sorry to have been gone so long. Just haven't felt like being on the computer. Sleep has been a little hit or miss. When I am asleep, I sleep well. It's just that I can't stay that way. Partly because my neuropathy is not just peripheral but it also affects my organs. Having a neurogenic bladder/ digestive tract is no fun. Like Vicki, I was diagnosed with idiopathic peripheral neuropathy about 15 years before I was diagnosed with DM2, but another cause could stem from MS which I was diagnosed with last year. The trouble with the CPAP mask will work itself out, the other will never get any better. I just need to make the best of things where I can.

@Mormonnomore2 I hope things get better for you. Life's a bitch as they say, and some days are better or worse than others. Just know we are here to talk when you need us. Welcome to the group.

MORMONNOMORE - And another member joins in. Wonderful. Working on peachy is a great way to spend Sunday, or any day for that matter. I have no idea what a 'Thunder' game is. Will you tell me please? While you're in the telling mode how about sharing a bit about your neuropathy and its impact on your life.

My history is pretty much spelled out on my Spark Page. Several (over 20) years ago I began having signs of neuropathy of unknown cause. As the disease progressed, I was finally given the peripheral neuropathy diagnosis. I didn't contract diabetes 2 until a good 10 years later. Strange, but since my disease manifests itself in the same way as diabeticc neuropathy that is what the dr calls it. I have lost all sensation in my lower extremeties and some of that in my hands. I'm now 'disabled' and get around only with an assistive device. So far I have declined the use of a wheelchair because of my fear that I would give up once I got one. I do have a scooter and a husband who can take it out of the car for me so I am not completely homebound. I also have parkinsons so it is impossible to crochet, write by hand or anything else requiring fine motor skills.No woe is me story though. I found Spark People and have many friends and interests here online.

Deb - hope this finds you preparing for a good night of sleep and that the mask isn't disruptive to your rest. Sleep tight and let us know in the morning if it worked again.

Sunday is a day of rest - thank goodness. The estate sale was definitely a success. We are now packing up everything that is left - and will donate it to Christian Ministries. Amazing how different we are in later years. Things we'd generally love to have are just more 'stuff' and we have plenty of that. Need to be emptying my own house of 'stuff' so certainly am not taking home anymore. lol

Am hoping this week will be one of 'ability' so I can get some things done at home. And my weight is desperately in need of some attention. My meds and insulin, like many of us, don't lend themselves to weight loss. Add disabilities and exercise is a real challenge. This week's focus will be to do 30 min of exercise each day. WooHoo - I CAN do it!

Our weather is to be at 85 this afternoon, with low humidity so it will be comfortable. I love spring when it acts like spring! We've had rain recently so everything is bright and green. Hope the same is true where you are.

Hi, Vicki - Hope you had fun at your estate sale. They are a lot of work.

Well, I had 1 good night, then back to the same old routine. Waking up at least twice to pee. :-{ Slept until 10 this morning, after waking up at 5 & 7. Still had a headache & neckache, but at least I didn't wake up in a panic, gasping for breathe. We'll get it worked out.

Deb - what a wonderful night of sleep. I take it you have somewhat resolved the issue with the mask.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi everyone - Happy Thursday!

Vicki - I'm sorry that you have to do a sleep study, but I'm glad I did it. Last night, for the first time in I can't remember when, I didn't have to get up at all in the middle of the night. I did wake up a couple of times, changed positions, and went right back to sleep. Didn't really wake up until about 715am this morning, 15 minutes before my alarm was set for. I still feel like I could sleep more, but having been sleep deprived for so long, it will take some time for me to catch up. lol

Hello world! Almost didn't make it. Some days are like that. Had to come back to finish. Fell asleep at 10:30 which is unheard of for me. Now am up (11:30) and no telling when I'll go back to sleep. Went to dr today and they want to do a sleep study on me. According to a questionaire they had me complete, I am at risk for apnea. We''ll see after they set up the study. I already sleep with oxygen at night. I do have an interrupted night of it usually.

Deb - the improved sleep seems to be happening for you. It will be interesting to see if you will be able to spend an uninterrupted night. Did you have a c-pap before the study? Hope your discomfort from the mask is improved easily and quickly.

The garden is now the responsibility of my daughter since I no longer can do the hoeing and weeding. She is about to plant cucumbers, tomatoes and squash as soon as the mud dries from the rain storm. The tree actually was given to my granddaughter at the museum of natural science when she was 8. It was just a little 5 inch seedling and is now 4 foot tall. It is fun watching it grow.

I got a message back from Fluffy and she has left the team. Said she is on too many teams and was minimally involved here since neuropathy was a relatively minor issue for her. We continue to grow in number and I'll be trying to get more to join us on the daily chat.
and participate with the team activity.

See you tomorrow. Long busy day planned. Will be out most of the day. Have a good Thursday!
