DBlog Week: More Than Diabetes


Yes, I know DBlog Week is over. I'm late to the party with this post. Reason? Life.

We were asked to write about our lives outside of diabetes. Here goes, folks.

I hate to cook
Like really, really hate it. And surprise, surprise, I stink at it too. I cannot cook anything. Oh I can do the basics - make some chicken, spaghetti, boil things. That's where my talent ends. And I am totally fine with it. If I never spent one more minute in a kitchen for the rest of my life, it would be alright with me. I really don't even care how pot roast is made, or how to cook fish. Nothing interests me less than cooking or talking about cooking. Don't get me wrong, I love to eat. It's the cooking I despise. But a WIN for me is that I raised three kids who eat very well, thank you. 

I coupon the hell out of everything.
I have a coupon for everything. I love to save money. I have always thought of coupons as free money and who doesn't love that?! I am not one of those crazy coupon ladies who buy 250 jars of mustard because they have coupons. If I do not need it, I do not buy it. But if I have free coupons for things, I get as many as I can and I drive to our local food bank and give them a donation. There's nothing that makes me happy like a good coupon.

I collect snowglobes.
I have about 300 of them. And I should probably post a picture of them here, right? Alas, as I type this, no photo. I promise to add one at some point. I have collected them since I was a little girl. I have them from all over the world, in all shapes and sizes. And yes, I shake them and watch the snow and glitter fall. I use my snowglobes folks, and people over the house are welcome to shake and touch and admire them all they want. Nothing brings me joy like a snowglobe.

I run a support group for parents of children and adults with autism in the Philly area.
When my oldest child was diagnosed with autism at age 2 1/2, she was the only child I knew with autism. She is 20 now. I thought there should be support for others on this journey, so I joined with other moms to create a support group, online and in person. We have over 250+ members, have meetings, and talk via a listserv. It's one of my proudest accomplishments. Parents don't feel so alone now.

There ya go, peeps. Something other than diabetes.
Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

ALL THANKS TO DR WILLIAMS FOR THE GREAT DEED HE HAVE DONE FOR MY DAUGHTER?
My daughter suffered from diabetes type 2 for more than 20 years which we started experiencing in her when she turned 17 year and 5 months we all thought it will end but got even worse as days went by. We tried all several treatments and therapy prescribed by various doctors we met but to no avail, she lost weight even when she is eating and feel hungry,and She usually had Headaches. This were steady illness that disrupted her entire life, even at night she slept less because of this.It was during a casual conversation with a friend that i learned about Dr Williams herbal medicine I was able to contact him on his email address. and give him all the necessary information that he needed,few day later he sent me the herbal portion and his medicine was able to restore her back to normal and she is very okay now without any side effects whatsoever. If you have diabetes, do not hesitate to contact him on drwilliams098675@gmail.com for advice and for his product. I hope this also helps someone out there

As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from diabetes type 2 , i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
My husband was diagnosed of diabetes and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he had difficulty eating, and he always complain of stomach pain and he always have frequent urination . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to diabetes . I never imagine diabetes has a cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in one months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. diabetes has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony
