One of my diabetic friends who is over 70 carries his needle in a toothbrush holder & has been known to remove it from his pocket while talking to friends & jab himself without people really noticing!

The only thing that holds him back a bit is a childhood bike accident that left one leg shorter & stiff. There have been times in the recent past that his leg has caused him big trouble & further operations, but the diabetes - never.

Diabetes support organisations have lots of info. Other 'Catters have diabetes too & can offer tips & info.

Nigel: For 28 years I've walked a few hundred miles, tent camped in rustic settings, crawled through mud in a cave, hot air ballooned, skinny dipped, done small construction jobs, listened to her singing in a big choir group and occasional solo settings, and made love like rabbits, with a lady who had already been totally insulin dependent for about 27 years before I met her. She retired a year and a half ago from a career as an occupational therapist. The damn diabetes has been a pesky nuisance the whole time, and I wouldn't wish it on anybody; but on the grand scale of things...

I'm sorry to read about the change in your diagnosis. I can only think that the stress you have been under has caused your own condition to accelerate.

In addition to the professional advice you are getting about meds, nutrition, and exercise, I hope somebody has mentioned meditation. That could mean a traditional form of meditation, but for you it might also mean music and Mudcat! At least I hope we are easing your level of stress.

I'm glad to read that Jane is doing well, and I am full of hope for her continuing to do so.

It's been six days since I last posted, but it feels twice as long as that. I've spent three of those six days with my GP & two Diabetic Nurse Specialists. We weren't cohabiting, but it did seem as if I was spending a disproportionate amount of my time at the clinic! The initial diagnosis has been revised 'up' & it has been suggested that I start getting used to the fact that Type 2 could become Type 1 sooner rather than later. That news took a bit of digesting...went through a range of emotions, ranging from anxious & scared to bloody angry! It's now Saturday & acceptance is knocking on my door. It is only a gentle knock at present, but acceptance is the only way to go.
          I've missed your company, your wise, comforting words, your humour...Bruce, ChanteyLass, Wendy, Spaw, kat, gnu, Pete, Janie, Dean, Dan & everyone else who voyages with us. Singling out individuals is a perilous task, but Bruce's post of 22nd June has touched me very deeply. Several of us have exchanged emails, where we have been able to share intimacies that can only be shared one to one. Intensely personal aspects & moments from our lives...so precious.
          Lest we forget, the lady for whom this thread was started, our Darling Jane, remains stable, no further spreading of the cancer & the lung tumours appear to be shrinking. We really don't know whether 'cure' is a word we dare think of, let alone utter, but she has energy & a sense of purpose & is living her life much as she always has done. In January, when she received her diagnosis, everything about her changed. Jane was still called Jane, but the Jane we knew & loved was in a dark & frightening place. Now, the sun shines from her face once again...still taking things a day at a time, but with a hint of 'lightness' that was not apparent before.
          Time, I think, to conclude this Saturday Digest. Ann & I send our Love to You all, hoping that Life is treating you kindly & that you will continue to voyage with us,
                            With Love,
                                           Nigel & Ann

Lovely, Janie.

My dad got to hold my grandson when he was born. My dad was literally shaking because he never thought he would see a great-grandchild. (Mom didn't live long enough to see me married, let alone a mother.) We made sure my dad was sitting down in an armchair when he held him. Even then my dad was reluctant, but we assured him all would be well. I will never forget the look of wonder on my dad's face.

You are in my thoughts each day, and I expect that will continue. You too, Pete and Dean and Dan. It's always good to know you're not alone when stuff happens.

{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}} to you and your family, Pete.

I can imagine what it meant to your mom and to her grandchild for her to get hold that great grandbaby. My lovely neice by marriage was 7 months pregnant when Daddy died. They had sent him and Mom an ultrasound photo that clearly showed Roxie's facial features. Dad took such joy in looking at that picture, and handed it around to visitors proudly. "See my new great grand-daughter? Isn't she beautiful?" My parents raised my nephews after my sister died, and it also brought great solace to Matt that Daddy so delighted in Roxie in utero.

Top of the Afternoon to you too! Ann & I drove to the seaside (only 17 miles away) to treat ourselves to a nice lunch. Car died as we parked...couldn't lock it...it wouldn't restart...called the AA...nice guy turns up, but looks warily at our keyless entry/starting system. He checks the basics, battery (good), cleans the battery terminals...car still as dead as the proverbial Dodo (great bird name for a Musician!) Inspiration strikes...he holds the fob right up close to the starting button & hey presto, everything bursts into life! We missed our lunch, but were able to drive home with no further problems. Phoned my local Toyota agent...apparently the keyless entry/start/stop can be affected by other radio frequencies...never experienced that before. The key fobs also had new batteries following a recent service. We shut the car down at home...waited a minute or two, it fired up perfectly & the doors locked/unlocked as per usual....not quite the way we'd planned to spend a sunny afternoon by the sea! Give me 'The Rainbow' any day, not a battery or wireless device in sight.
               With Love,
                              Nigel & Ann.

Start with me Wendy. And there a lot of others happy to listen although it might be only just that.......listening and good thoughts. And on that I seem to need to address my cousin Nigel here when he says, "I am beginning to feel unsettled about distracting folk from other, more acute threads."

Don't........I have found that when this group especially and human beings in general open their heart to others, the working capacity of that heart is pretty unlimited. Now you know that's true but you don't want to have anyone feel "put upon" or whatever. So lemmee say that if I think you're over the edge, I'll send you a note. Until then.................

ChanteyLass, Kat & Janie...you always manage to say the right thing just when I need to hear it most. I agree, CL, quantifying my/our needs is not an exact science. Our current situation seems to revolve around two 'criteria': Stability & our take on Normality. Thinking of Jane first, her condition is 'stable', in as much as the spread of her cancer has been halted & she is able to engage in about 80% (her oncologist's estimate) of what she would recognise as 'normal living'. If I 'triage' that against Dean's situation & our Dear Kat, my feeling is that, in the here & now, our 'needs' are of a lower order & I am beginning to feel unsettled about distracting folk from other, more acute threads. However, quoting Kat: "So, I say dip yer oar in wherever or sit back and relax...it's all good and no limits!" So true Kat, so true. The fact that You could write that, whilst having to deal with Fibromyalgia, fills me with awe & wonder. Your selflessness is a true measure of your character.
          Ann & I are so fortunate to have you all as Dear & Trusted Friends,
          With Love,

Much appreciated, Nigel, but one thing I learned, from anudder Mudder, is we all have needs of great personal extent but no need for comparison "triage." One thing this place has is plenty of good thoughts, love, etc. to go round. So, I say dip yer oar in wherever or sit back and relax...it's all good and no limits!

Thank you to all who've listened to 'The Voyage'. I'm beyond pleased that you like it! Since it was published, I've received some of the best reviews of my Music career! I'm very touched & increasingly sure I don't deserve such fulsome praise, but nevertheless, accept with gratitude.
       Good to hear from Freda, Sandra, ChanteyLass...we have such similar, shared Life experiences (song title pops into head: "You'll Never Walk Alone")
       To Dean: stow the oars, no need to row, the wind is set fair, enjoy the breeze on your face. But, if the weather changes, your rowing skills could well be in demand! I'm also imagining your Wife, up on deck beside you, sharing the breeze, listening to the water lapping at the hull.
       To Ebbie: It's interesting to contemplate just what a profound effect a thread like this can have. We've never lost sight of the reason why I first posted, back in January, but in terms of breadth & depth, this thread continues to develop, almost on a daily basis. If, as you say, your hopes for a better world have been renewed, then we need to hoist a special flag to mark such an auspicious occasion. Your Blessings are graciously received.
       With Love to You All,

Having been away and off-line for a long weekend and tired when I returned home, I just listened to your Voyage of the Rainbow. It's lovely. Well done!

Type 2 is what I have. I started on one pill daily and followed all the directions for exercise and diet, but my meds were increased to two pills daily and eventually to three. I felt like a failure. At the same time I was angry at my body because I knew I was doing everything I was supposed to do but apparently getting worse in spite of my changes. I thought, "Why am I even bothering to do all this if I am getting worse, not better?" However, I kept at it and eventually my condition improved. Much later I read an article that said that doctors often start patients on a low dose because they don't want to over-medicate. Then they increase the meds if needed. If that happens to you, be assured that this is common in the treatment of people who are newly diagnosed.

And while I was away, I kept your family and those of other 'Catters in my prayers.

Dear Dean....WELCOME ABOARD! But first things first....no shame, ok? You haven't been neglecting this thread, you've been caring for your Wife, so please....no shame. You are now officially a member of the crew of 'The Rainbow' (You might also consider moving to Mudcat Avenue when we finally drop anchor). Travel with us...there is wisdom, knowledge & an abundance of Life's experiences here, a 'Life Library', 'The Book of Mudcat', it's all here, just a click away. With respect to your own thread, I must ask; is your Wife responding to her treatment? You said that you weren't out of the woods yet, but is that bright light beyond the tree-line visible?
       And finally, thank you very much for your generous praise regarding 'The Voyage'.
       Time to splice the mainbrace!
                                                    With Love,
                                                                   Nigel & Ann
                                                                   xxxxxxxxx

I've let this thread slip by until now. When I felt the need to post regarding my wife, Nigel responded right away. I feel somewhat shamed. But I just read all of this thread, and it has been good for my heart just now. I really think it will help me face my own current journey, if I can also come aboard with yours.

And, Nigel, the composition is profoundly beautiful.

                   Dean

Nigel... just to the bottom right of the box I am typing in now is "Make a link ("blue clicky")". Try it out. Hint... I open things in a new window (like, where it says "test this link") and I copy the link before I do so. PM me, or maeve, I assume, if you need any help.

Here is the individual link for 'The Voyage Of The Rainbow':

Or if you can bear the thought of listening to some of my other pieces too:

I C&P'd the urls from YT straight into the 'clicky maker', but they didn't turn blue (my favourite colour as it happens). Expert Musician...Crap Clicky-Maker...what am I doing wrong?
It's finally stopped raining & blowing a gale & the sun's come out. As one of my college friends often used to say: "Have a Weekend!"

Jane has returned to Dubai for what will almost certainly be the last time. Just time to celebrate her Wedding Anniversary, tie up some loose ends & say her goodbyes. Her condition remains stable, i.e. the cancer still has not spread any further. She seems determined to put all her energy into each day as it comes, making each day count, making each day a day on which she can look back with a measure of satisfaction & pleasure. The whole Family will be back permanently in the UK, once Jane's children have finished this term's schooling. After that, as my late Father used to say: "Press on regardless".
                         With Love,
                                        Nigel & Ann.
