My Apologies

So sorry to loseimg0032crying touch with everyone for so long.  Several months ago I began to experience some strange and disturbing “symptoms”. It turns out I’m diabetic! I was devastated. Thought it was the end of my life.

 

 

 

 

 

Of course… it wasn’t. I’m doing very well now. I HAD temporarily lost my eye sight to the degree that everything was blurry and my glasses were no longer helping. Working on the computer was impossible! After I was diagnosed and my sugar first came down a bit, I could see crystal clear. But that didn’t last long. Now I need reading glasses, and I am able to use the computer again.

I would just like to emphasize to all my friends, family and faithful followers that this disease can sneak up on you. If you have any symptoms at all, you are better off to get it checked and get it under control now. These symptoms can be any or all of the following:

  • Frequent urination
  • Unusual thirst
  • Extreme hunger
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Extreme fatigue and Irritability
  • Frequent infections
  • Blurred vision
  • Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
  • Tingling/numbness in the hands/feet
  • Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections

I had six symptoms before I realized something was VERY wrong.  I almost have it under control now and I’m very pleased to say I lost 15 pounds, I’m exercising 5 xs a week, I’m eating right (and I don’t miss anything I shouldn’t eat), my joints no longer hurt, and I’m sleeping so much better. I even wake up with the sun!

Anyway, I love all of you and want everyone to take care of themselves, and be especially wary of this awful yet common disease!

  1. Happy to hear you’ve gotten some help in getting back to health. My husband is diabetic and I have some idea what you are going through. Glad to see you back!

  2. My goodness. That all sounds so terrifying, for anyone, but particularly for a visual artist. I’m so glad you’re well on your way to getting your life back. And it’s sounds like you’ve made some positive life changes that will serve you well. Take care (I know you are), Cathy
