The life you save just might be your own! YOU are your own best caregiver, and no one else will ever care as much!
I was a short fat kid and am still one, though I now weight less than I did when I was 10yrs old! I've been shooting insulin since early 1967, and I'm still here to complain about it. I have all my eyes, all my kidneys, all my liver, all my fingers and toes, have normal blood pressure and lipids,--so I must be doing something right-- and a "bad attitude" because I question the so-called authorities, do my own research, and demand to make my own decisions about my care. I'm a cancer survivor because I'm onery enough to refuse to die when I was expected to, and despite that the cancer was ignored and the diagnosis and treatment delayed becuase of the mistaken belief "your sympttoms are just the diabetes not being controlled enough." I'm here, and the doctor who said that is NOT, so there!
I'd like to weigh what I did when I was 8yrs old (I was over 200 at age 12!) I want to see my grandchildren again before their father (my only son)is deployed back to Afghanistan. I want to see my daughter get her BS. I'd like to get paid to do the work I do as a volunteer, and still be able yo keep mu public option health insurance. I want to join my Uncle Frank at his 100th birthday party this summer, and I want to invite the community to celebrate MY 100th birthday over a world-wide broadband hook-up.
Acid jazz, Mick Marin's Blues Party, some historical gospel
MuLan, Gay Purree,Antz, Forty Carats; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Legend of Drunken Master;Fiddler on the Roof
Favorite TV Shows
Spartacus: Blood and Sand Yes, it's violent and gory and the society is morally bankrupt (which is why the Roman Empire fell) but the eye candy--woo-hoo!
Sex with the Queen by Elizabeth Hermann (true history); Faye Kellerman's Rina Lazarus/Peter Decker series (why hasn't this made at least a few TV movies: Lifetime Channel. are you listening?); Freakonomics; anyting by Al Franken or Malcolm Gladstone
I don't drink alcohol or coffee; don't smoke anything (pot makes me puke, and I didget it medically; and don't have promiscuous sex, so that leaves only CHOCOLATE! The GOOD stuff, like Valrhona, Godiva, Scharffenberger, or Jos. Schmidt, but See's will do in a pinch, as I believe Charl-Mont went out of business.
I'm passdionate about social justice. I don't make promises I can't keep.
