    Re: Introduce Yourself:Hello All :)

    - Hi My Name is Ken , I am joining this forum as my daughter of 13 was diagnosed with T1 Diabetes December 7th 2011
    I am 55 yrs old born and bred in England, living in Northumberland , Guyzance , near Alnwick.
    3words before 7/12/11 would be happy adventurous and occasionally stupid.
    Post 7/12/11 , Disillusioned, scared and down right angry.
    My wife used to say I was an awful person to have an argument with as I just did not argue , but now I snap at the smallest issue , I’m not too happy about that but I cant help it .

    Pets yes we have a cat ( 20 yrs old ) 6 Ducks and many tropical fish. Bane of my life cleaning out the duck shed , poo poo and more poo , good for the finger nails I hear ( tried to inject a smiley but failed there too ).
    I like all sports as does my daughter she achieved a first Dan Black belt in Karate at the age of 10 , it as taken until last week for her to gain the confidence to go back to training , something to be happy about I suppose , As for Computers I cant see the attraction of Apple it is not easy to use and in my experience is a pain in the a**e .
    Music I like heavy rock , not that I get the chance to listen to it , too much little mix and Pink , just noise I hear my dad say . Which is exactly what he would say when I watched all the syfy programmes one after the other .
    I work as a Technical Project Manager for Fujitsu UK, I good company to work for especially when you are asking for days off to go to the hospital with the little un.
    My Quals , ONC,HNC & BSc Degree in electrical and electronic engineering , plus a few Industry quals and Member of BCS ( British Computer Society )

    I have joined this forum for "Hope" really , I have offered my Pancras as a transplant but apparently it does not work . I saw a report on this forum when I was searching for T1 cures , where a Chinese Doc had cured mice totally and wondered if this was confirmed and if any euro companies were chasing a solution .
    My underlying thoughts are that this is a multi million dollar business for the suppliers , so they don’t really want a cure , or am I being too cynical?
    :D :D

    I had been a long serving member of the armed forces, a mountain leader, an experienced long distance hiker, a vegetarian, non-drinker, non-smoker with no family history of diabetes. I was diagnosed Type2 immediately after Christmas 2007 !! Happy New Year.... It's one hell of a steep learning curve, isn't it? Oodles of misconceptions, misinformation. Then the absolute horror of advancing years and worsening management of it. Helplessness, the feeling of being poisoned by what you eat, slipping into sense of isolation and purposelessness. I felt like I was packing my bags at 50 !!
    Finally, about two weeks back and after my banging on about it to (unsympathetic) GPs, I've been prescribed insulin. Immediate re-empowerment, better more effective therapy, relief from muscle pain, circulatory complications, overarching fatigue and the psychological side effects. I wish it hadn't taken so long to get here, but I am just so grateful to my DSN, the doctor who listened for more than the statutory 5 minutes and Bayer chemicals for the kit. :thumbup: :thumbup:
    I've learned to take responsibility for what I eat, how much I exercise, and how I feel in my head. That's when I turned my own corner and stopped kidding myself that it wasn't going to affect me, I was the exception. None of us is exceptional, so knuckle down, be prepared to self-examine lifestyle, habits etc and DO something positive to change yourself. You're too valuable as a human being to your families, friends and this planet to succumb to this condition.
