Listen in, listen Ian!
Jesus, but my life is dull at the moment. I'm not actively fed up or
anything, and quite happy when all's said and done but I keep writing
entries then reading them back and thinking "Are you insane? Who the hell
do you think is going to want to read that?" I've just written something
about the Capital Gains Tax training course I went on this morning (not
actually as dull as it sounds) then deleted it because, well, who the hell
cares? It's not as if it's important is it?

Perhaps it was ever thus, and I've just become more self-aware recently? I
have a doctor's appointment this evening where I suspect I'll probably get
told off for being a rubbish diabetic, so maybe there'll be something to
talk about there?

Think of all the awesome entries you'll have if they decide to amputate your foot or something!

Its your journal, write what the hell you want to! Who cares if its interesting. Sometimes reading other people's dull entries just makes the rest of us feel normal! I don't think anyone actaully reads my journal at all, some people jsut have me as a friend so we don't loose touch! LOL

I haven't had a diabetes appointment for over a year now. Do you get to go to teh hospital? I have to go to a diabetes nurse at my GP and they do their best but... *shrugs*. I don't think I've ever been a good diabetic. I;'d rather die a year early than put all my energy into that small part of my life. Some of the guys on the diabetes comm make me laugh when they say "OMG my blood sugar is 12!! Am I going to die?"

not you, you sausage!

One day you might drink vodka instead, and THEN we'd be all excited and stuff! ;-)

don't worry, next time I see you I'll make sure its cider. All your london friends will be shocked (or not!)

I used to go to the hospital before I moved, and I was just seeing my GP tonight. She seemed very good though.

The thing I'm most worried about is less dying, than going blind. That terrifies me.

Some of the guys on the diabetes comm make me laugh when they say "OMG my blood sugar is 12!! Am I going to die?"

I gave up reading that; I got bored of stuff like that.

Re: Diabetes, my father is diabetic and age 79, and has been since he was 17...he used to have the hypodermics you take apart and boil on top of the stove to sterilize! Anyway, he still has his vision and his feet, and he'll turn 80 in July. The trick, says his retinologist, is controlling your blood sugar spikes. If you can manage to keep your sugar steady (or as steady as you can under the circumstances) you'll be much better off over the long haul.

Re: Your journal, another person on my list frequently posts things like "This journal is for my own precious memories so you can all F**k off!" Write what you want; it's a journal, not a column. You know we'll read it anyway.

Yes, I quite often think the same of my journal; who the cock wants to know about the Arsenal games I've been to? Since my life's so fucking boring right now as well it's all I seem to write about.

Still, I tend to stick to the maxim that, since it's my journal and you made the original error of friending me, you'll bloody well have to make do with tedious anecdotes about football and drinking.

Dude 90% of my entries are about milk that's gone off. You have nothing to worry about.

You're a lovely diabetic! I like your journal cos it means I get to imagine what it's like to be grown up.

You don't really think you're grown up do you? You still live like a boy (but with cash). You're one of the least grown up people I know. This is a good thing.

Now, when can K9 come round and beat the crap out of your Dalek?

Eh, into every life a little crushing dullness must fall. It'll be spring soon, and things will be better.

Your entries (!) are interesting, but I think you've summed up why I so rarely update my journal.
