    Hi Kevin,
    Just read all the way through your posts in one sitting. Your thread was referred to in another post where a lady was asking for hep for her partner, she was told to make him read your posts.
    I dont know if she has, but I have and it has really made an impact on me.
    I have a young son, who I want to see grow up. I have been working hard to control my BG levels, but was looking forward to having 3 days off in August when we go on holiday............after reading your posts I am very determined to keep my BG levels under control ALL the time.

    Off to check my feet.....

    Please keep posting Kevin, it really has made a difference to people, YOU have made an impact in our lives.
    Thank you

    @michelle lilly
    A) If you click on kman name in one of his posts
    2) that will take you to his profile,
    3) On the bar on it you will see a heading Postings that will give you a list/link all of Kevs postings.

    Or to bypass that you click on here and look for the word POSTINGS

    Have met him and his family, love the insane dog ...actually no choice she held us hostage well hub, she decided l was a waste of time in the throw a ball stakes but she had other half trained in about 1 minute. :hilarious:

    Just come across this thread and its predecessor after it was referenced in another one. I haven't read all the posts but enough to realise how amazing the whole story is. Reading the first few posts I did start to wonder when the last one would be and its wonderful to see that you are still with us and posting. Your courage in revealing all this, and the love and support that you have from your family is heart warming. I have had my head in the sand for about 5 years and only woke up to the possibilities a few months ago and started to get things under control. You have told me what might be in store if I relapse now but I know that it is up to me to make sure I never do.

    Thank you for everything you have said and I hope that you and your family have many happy times together for as long as possible. My condolences also on the death of your friend.

    Ruth, Thank you for your kind words, and well done for " Waking Up" to the dangers and the responsibilities of your own health, Best of luck too for keeping it up, I.feel you will, so you make sure you Live long, I know your not me, and I'm sure you'll have the strength and determination to do what I never did !

    Today we attended our friends funeral, it went as well as any funeral could, her parents were distraught, but they have many friends including us to be there,

    Thanks again Ruth,

    Fondest Regards.

    Kevin & Wendie.

    So glad to hear the funeral went as well as it could. My brother's funeral was a celebration of his life with his friends in their "football gear" as I requested. ( He was a lifelong supporter of PNE.) I hope it was a celebration of your friend's life too. Friends of mine think it is strange I don't know the date nor even the year my parents passed away but to me that is not important. The important thing is their birth (not even that date; but I do remember their birthdays), that they were born to become my parents, and my brother too - that he was born to be my brother and all the memories of them.

    I'd say your friends have a good friend in you :)

    Folks I have for sometime now been lost in a habit of feeling sorry for myself, the Rapid deterioration of my condition, and the corresponsding increase in the intensetity and the frequency of my Neuropathic Pains, plus the worsening on a daily basis of my C.O.P.D, being a large part of this, plusmy Depression hasn't helped at all,

    I am sick offeeling like this, and of feeling sorry for myself constantly, I miss writing here in this thread, so I am determined now to drag myself to my feet, even if not literelly, and to make more of my time aimed at once again keeping you all informed and upto date with the progress of such a Complication of Diabetes and Stupidity,

    So here I am, Ready to take up the reigns again, so please keep faith with me, pop in here to the thread now and again, and lets hope at least one person out there will learn from my errors, and learn to Stay Well, Stay Alive, and be Happy for many many years to come,

    And thanks again for putting up with me through Thick and Thin.

    Love and Hugs to All.
