He is sick today. In bed all day long. No fever, but had cold chills and hot sweats. Couldn't move. When he tried to get up, his head was pounding. Didn't eat a thing.

but he had no problem calling me on my cell phone asking me to come upstairs. I think I did the stairs 30 times today. The last time, he wanted a muffin. I told him, no, sorry, you need to come downstairs to get it, I'm not doing stairs again today.

So he is downstairs, flat on the sofa, asking me to get him this and that.

I finally told him, no more. I need to sit on the heating pad as my back is killing me.

I have told him a thousand times we need to sell this place and move into a ranch. He just ignores me. So as of today, no more stairs, I don't care how sick he is. My back just trumped his diabetes! LOL!

Yet another day that nothing got done, nothing got fixed around here. And I know it's not going to get any better or any easier.

And I also know I'm tired and grumpy and crabby tonight!

Tomorrow will be better. I know it will!

So sorry to hear about your day yesterday, hopefully today is much better for you. I totally relate to you! Gotta tell you, I absolutely hate cell phones, my hubby calls me from all over the house too!

My husband was just dx'd with Diabetes and he's showing all the early signs of non-compliance. He thinks that just taking his pill and 'watching' what he eats will be enough. His blood sugar is hardly EVER under 200.

I blew up on him last night, and laid a thick layer of old-fashioned Catholic guilt on him - all the WRONG things to do and say, but at this point, I'm thinking he doesn't give a rat's behind about anybody but himself. This is, in his head, just happening to him. What he doesn't get is that if he doesn't take care of himself, we're ALL going to suffer.

anonymous - I think a man must have invented cell phones knowing they would be used as household intercom systems. LOL!

MJ's page: If you've read my past blogs, you'll see right where he is headed if he doesn't become compliant. It's a hellish roller coaster ride with all the highs and lows. I've tried every kind of guilt I can think of - nothing has worked here. Good luck!
