diabetties and ect. well you know you don't panic when you get a new pain,
you just go ok this is different and deal with it, but went to the doc and got
my butt chewed ( for good reason) been spaceing my meds, i forget things alot ( don't we all, personaly I blame kids & husband for that hahaha) so doc's orders reduce stress (hahahahaha I've got 13yr old,20 yr old who acts 16, 24yr just sent two afganistan & 42yr old going through mid life can't find job) funny thing next month I go to foot doc for bone spur removal ( they are going to have to wate on me hahahaha.so no matter how tired you are eat when you are suposed to. don't over do things ( we are all guilty of this)
watch your meds. sorry for the lecture but I had give it to someone (my 13yr just rolls her eyes and walks away ):lol:
so please don't make my mistakes, remember it's not selfish to put your health first.

Haha :lol:

Don't worry about the lecture. I think many of us need reminding from time to time :)

I hope that you will get over this quickly and glad to hear that you have a good butt kicking doc who's looking out for you when you're looking out for everyone else!

Your post is right on and many of us, including myself, always puts others first.

It is true that you need to put your health first, then the rest can follow.

Hope you feel better.
