So sorry to hear your news Mike but great that you can be so philosophical about it all.

Best wishes,

Anne.

You always have a choice in these situations. You can choose to own the disease, or choose to have the disease own you. I know which you do. So do I :D

On the bright side if we were all fit and healthy our lives would never have crossed and Mike would never have been a Dr

I travelled over the sea to get to Oban today for my diabetic eye screening. Diabetes is the commonest cause of blindness in the U.K., that's a little reminder to pancreatic diabetics.

The harbour front of Oban has been transformed - its superb for wheelchairs, wide pedestrian expanses, dropped kerbs aplenty. It's great for a crip to zip around, scattering tourists.

By the way, my eyes are textbook pristine, after 21 years of insulin addiction. :D

See? I can do good news on this thread :roll:

Glad you had a nice day out Mike and good news about your eyes.

"It's Good News Week".

Who's old enough to remember that song....and who sang it?

I don't have the answer to Anne's question.

I am thrilled you got a perfect report for your eyes!

I do remember the song, but not who sang it. Well I could have looked it up and been clever, but no I can't remember the singer(s)

Hedgehoppers Anonymous apparently! :shock: :shock:

Evidently made it big :shock: .

I just had a fab mental picture of you Mike in your electric wheelchair, hurtling round like some kind of nutter up and down the kerbs :lol: :lol: .

A bit like a geriatric skateboard park :lol: :lol: .

Three cheers for Mike :D :D :D Couldn't agree more, the fun thing for me now is that I actually know people who do not know what I have been through and they look at me and talk to me normally :D Win, win :D I hated sympathy, I hated empathy, I just wanted to live :D

True but if a bit of sympathy extended to doing my housework, I wouldn't mind a bit of that!

I have been living on a building site since November and have given up housework as it is futile..... :lol:

My Mother-in-law used to say that the dust will be there long after we're gone....sounds like I finally agree with her :lol: :lol:
