Hello everybody I am sorry that I have not been on here for a while I have had a lot of health issues. I had the lapband surgery done, so far I have lost 13kg which is wonderful it has not made any difference to my diabetes, I have been to hospital for 2 weeks to start the insulin desensitization. I am on 1 unit of insulin ( the smallest amount possible) I am so itchy I could get on the floor and roll like a dog(no comments thanks lol) but apart from all that life is treating me well the weather is heating up and my veggie garden is ready for planting and I can almost go camping and fishing. I am still smiling and that's a bonus thank you for listening to me Narelle your Tassie mate

Hey Nlarelle,

It is fantastic to see you again!

Really sorry to hear about the health issues, that itching sounds just awful.

I am hoping that you feel better soon. Congratulations on the weight loss. And I hope you are able to get back to the gardening soon. Wow, you are about to enjoy your summer as we "look forward" to a few months of cold. Enjoy!

And welcome back, my freind!

I have missed you! Sorry for the itchy thing...I won't elaborate. LOL. So you have been having success with your surgery and that is great. I know it will help you when you are out in the garden and camping when you don't dread the weeding and the sleeping on the ground so much. I hope you have a wonderful spring!

Happy to hear from you Relly. Hope you get used to the lapband. And not so surprised that it isn't effecting your diabetes cause it's still recent. But kudos for the weight loss…that will help. Give it time, You'll see results. Hope this message finds you well and in good spirits,

No apologies needed, Relly, just glad to hear you are back and on the road to improved health. Your summer expectations sound like fun — camping, fishing, and raising veggies..

Good to see you again, we were worried! I'm sure as things progress you'll see much better results, but good to hear you're on the path at least!
