One step closer....

ta the end.

Well, wen't an seen doc taday. Some of ya may er may not know, I'm a diabetic.

He started me on insulin, just at night fer now, but we gotta work on the dosage. I guess I been lucky, been on pills fer over 9 years an got buy, but it's advanced ta the point they won't do it no more. Guess we'll see where this goes.

I ain't lookin fer anybody ta feel sorry fer me, I just know what it can do. Watched it eat away at my grandma an my dad. I ain't lookin forward ta livin like that. Try an take good care a myself (well, so did they) an guess we just take it one day at a time.

Have ta see how takin inuslin will affect work, perty sure the Commercial Drivers License just wen't south. Oh well, like the smaller trucks better anywho!

Well ya know what they say, when life deals ya lemons, make lemonade (yall ever have that without sugar.....Yuck!) So as a reward, I'm gonna make more pepperoni sticks tangiht!

Good smokes

Re: One step closer....

Keep you head up and like everyone else said do what the doc says.
For what it's worth, Diabetes is common in my family so I'm sure it's coming my way no matter what I do. If you look at what they know about it now to even ten years ago it's incredible though, they've made a lot of progress.
I think Pringles initial intention was to make tennis balls, but on the day the rubber was supposed to arrive a big truck full of potatoes showed up, but Pringles is a laid back company, they said "What the hell, cut 'em up."
