Continue to pray for my daughter.

I just wrote a big long blog post just to find out that it was on my selling blog, so here we go again.
 As I have posted before my daughter is type 1 diabetic and has dealt with an eating disorder
diabulimia for pretty much the last 10 years. Diabulimia is a disorder where you withhold insulin to loose weight. It has been 10 years of hell to put it mildly. I have cried and prayed and cried and prayed. When she was having terrible pain from neuropathy, (painful nerve pain). I felt guilty even sleeping when I knew she couldn't. It is horrible to watch someone you love suffer, It is almost unbearable.
  She has a blog now here is the link if you would like to read about her journey.
Steph's Blog
  She is also in a support group on Facebook that has really helped her.
I know that the Lord has a plan for her life and that she will come out on top and be able to
help others going through this same disorder.
  And finally she has health insurance, she is in the process of getting an insulin pump, I am so excited. I pray that she likes it and it will help with the low blood sugars and keep her blood sugars more regulated. I constantly worry about her having low blood sugars. I hate diabetics.
  I thank the Lord for how far he has brought her and know he has greater plans for her life.
Her husband and children need her so bad as well as me her mamma.
I appreciate all of your prayers for her.

    My prayers are w/you and esp. her! I know the Lord will help her beat this heart-breaking problem. Until them, big warm hugs my sweet friend! YOU are not alone!

  12. I know everyone who is a diabetic is different, but my good friend has been living with a pump for 10 years now.....lots of trial and error and upgrades but she is doing so well with it. I pray that Stephanie will receive the same or better results when she gets hers!
    Hugs and prayers as always,
    Sheila

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
