jammie Sunday...I love that...and I am doing that too...Keep on keeping on and again, I hope you are still forging ahead with your plan to sell the house and move near your sis...that makes me happy and all I know you from is on here. HUGS
well, by keeping myself anonymous here....you probably actually KNOW me better than anyone who is part of my life outside this blog! I keep the 2 separate. But it is this place, this blog, where I can be the real me. I can talk about the hurt, pain, fear, anger. And that allows me to be a nice, polite, "christian" type wife. Otherwise, I'd be screaming my head off in public! LOL!!!
Our personal circle of friends is pretty small. Interestingly, there are no other diabetics. Hubby does not tell anyone that he has diabetes. Only in the past 2 years have I told anyone other than my sisters and brother. Our next door neighbors know because he went into a diabetic coma at their house. They now keep glucose tabs and orange juice on hand.
I have many moments when I want to open up and share who I am, where we live, what our life is. But for the moment, I do think it's better to remain the way I am. It doesn't make this any less real, but perhaps protects the privacy of my husband as long as he is working. And protects the privacy of his medical staff. Who might not appreciate some of the things I say about them. And might not be so supportive of him if they knew it was his wife out here blabbing away! LOL!!!
I started this blog on March 22, 2006. I have not made 511 posts in the last 5 years. I don't know of many diabetics, let alone their spouses, who are posting the prognosis of their disease like I am. I don't post every week, sometimes I don't post every month. But then there are times when I post twice a day. It just depends on what's going on.....and my need to write it down.
Newtothis - I am taking your advice and copying over all the blogs into a word document. Ok, several word documents! It took me 2 hours to get 2006 copied over and that year has less posts than any other year. So it's a project I will work on this week. Thanks for the advice!
To all the wonderful comments that women have made here over the years, thank you. I pray that those of you who have moved on are safe and loving life. Know that you helped me through the moment and for that, I will always be grateful.
