I am Pissed!

   May 24, 2013

 

I have sat here for the past two hours, writing a blog entry. Went to post it and the authentication failed, while I was logged in!!!!!!! I had saved all of it, but the last 20 minutes of writing. Now, having tried to get back to the page that had most of it, I lost that as well.

 

Maybe this weekend, I can find time to redo it.

About the Author
  • Hi there!, I am much more than my autoimmune diseases. I'm Mom to a daughter and son - both in their mid 40's. Wife to my current husband for a long time. And Nana to three wonderful grandsons, one is 20 (and a Lance Corporal USMC), one is 18 and goes to his favorite college on a full 4 year Army ROTC scholarship (is an Army Cadet), and one is 10, and they are brothers. As you'll see in my signature, I was born with an autoimmune diabetic kidney disease (65 years ago). Then came Rubella at age 3. How about a little Rheumatic Fever thrown in - not once (age 7), but twice (age 22 or so). Rheumatic Fever is a systemic autoimmune disease -and in my case, is also an inherited one. Vitiligo (also autoimmune) at age 15, keeps my arms in small, lovely shades of no pigment. There have also been spells of adrenal issues through the years. My true love work wise, was specializing in Trauma Radiography, after earning my college degree of A.S. in Radiologic Technology. From the time I was 7, I knew I would work with x-ray stuff. I also tutored radiography students at the college level. Gave inservices to the radiography department(s); and conducted the monthly radiography tours to elementary school age children - using terms understood by those age groups. I was a member, during my working years, of my professional radiographic organizations. Since retiring from radiography, I've worked with wood, and have my own little woodshop biz at home. My volunteer efforts included for domestic violence shelters; nursing homes; and as a teenager, I was a candy striper, and earned that coveted cap after 1000 hours. :smileyhappy: My volunteer efforts now, are devoted to the ADA forums, helping other diabetics, and specifically on the Type 1 forum. I'm also a photographer, hand quilter when I can still see well enough to do tiny stitches, embroidery, crocheting, and learned to sew when I was 9. I loved tennis and bike riding. I also founded and published - three small community weekly and monthly newspapers (tabloid size), of which I was the only person to do all of the work, including layout and paste-up, along with writing the editorials, etc. Before I did my newspapers, twelve of my Letters to the Editor (one letter each month) of the area major newspapers, were published in three newspapers at the same time, of which one became (a 1/2 page in a full size newspaper) a Community Commentary section, on Domestic Abuse. Type 1 Diabetes is a part of my life, but it is not all of my life. ~ Trisha ~ IDDM (Type 1 autoimmune) 30+ years
