Anytime you want to drop a line to a crazy old bald fat guy, do so. Simply add me to your friends list and let me know what's on your mind, in your head, in your heart or on your plate. You have found one of the best diabetic (and life) support sites on the internet and I say that from experience. We don't have to have a lot in common to have a lot in common. Befriend me… anytime you need a shoulder, pep talk, or just want to vent or laugh or cry or get a hug. Count me in!!!

What is the saying a day late and a dollar short.Well I guess that is me.I only found this a few minutes ago and I would like to become a diabetic friend as well .

Failte Roshy & Clare Girl. I'm 55 and had diabetes for nearly 13 years. Only member of in my extended family with the problem, and my family doesn't help, they are all normal & thin. I'm half Irish & half Scottish. Found out not to long ago that my surname was changed from O'Brien to Bryant about 1856 when 2nd great-grandfather left Canada to Colorado, USA. Found an O'Brien cousin by DNA who lives in Buffalo, NY, his family comes from Killernan, County Clare. Our common ancestor is about 1700. Any way I often wonder how things will be for me a diabetic in Ireland where the food is so heavy in carbs and life is often centered around the Pub. To be a diabetic there must truly be hard. Get a handle on the diabetes early. Wish I had now. When first diagnosed refused to believe it. Could have been controlled with diet then, and progressed to a pill & diet. Went again into denial, and now inject insulin four or five times a day. The meds have made me gain 45 pounds that won't come off. I love Irish history, clan history, and things Gaelic/Celtic. Happy to be your pen pal along with the other fine folks here.

Hello Armourer,
Well! Let me tell you that you are definately living in the better place when it comes to medical care and being a diabetic!!!

In relation to the carb heavy foods - I thought the US won that contest:-) The pub is definately a problem for a lot of people with diabetes, especially as a lot of them don't realise that moderation means just 2 pints of beer and not 5 or 6.

If your a diabetic in Ireland and have access to the internet, then you're winning because you get way more information from the online diabetes community then you would ever recieve from your doctor, diabetes nurse specialist or dietician.

There is no such thing as a Certified Diabetes Educator in Ireland.

Having said all that we are trying to catch up with you guys and we will see lots of changes in diabetes healthcare in the next couple of year (especially if I have anything to do with it!):-)

Armourer 2010-07-19 00:12:43 -0500 Report

Sorry for the long delay in responding. I'm not to shocked, but a little. I thought Ireland was doing better than this. So guess I'm lucky. At the end of May I learned of a food/grain/vegatable that comes from Bolivia called Quinoa which is a whole protein. It really has no taste so it should be cooked with something, kinda takes the place of rice in most dishes, any it has been a life saver for me. The month of June my sugars have come down to manageable levels and I credit the Quinoa, also the Diabetic educator figured out I was being under medicated and doubled my insulin. I take roughly 200 units of insulin a day. If I ever visit Ireland, and I hope to before I die, I shall remember that I need to bring extra insulin. Does the government supply meds to to? Sorry for prying.

roshy 2010-08-14 16:59:53 -0500 Report

Hello there armourer!! sorry for the really really late reply!!

I often give out about the crappy health system that our country has but when you look at it in detail its not too bad.
My new consultant is a young modern doctor who is realistic and at the moment is fighting to get me a pump through the goverment (free of charge) However since the rescission, it takes a long time to be placed on the waiting list and blah blah blah but hopefully ill get there!!
I can also drop in a speak to diabetic nurse whenever and the same with a diatition!! so for me im quite fortunate to live near my hospital however improvements still need to be made; only now they are separating clinics for type 1s and 2s!! and there is no support groups or specialized councilors to speak to!! Its only recently they have started to educate diabetics on carb counting.!!(maddness)

Our goverment have a system where they give diabetics a long term illness book. our insulin is supplied free of charge along with the needles, lancets and tablets for those type 2's!!

Hahahaha!!! as for the life being hard as a type one diabetic in Ireland i guess its each to thier own!! i myself dont drink as much , my father is also type one and doesnt drink. so in that sense it doesnt bother me !!! theres also the fact that im a poor student and cant afford to drink but thats a totaly different story!!

And as the food goes, well were lucky over here because healthy food is cheap!! and its not all spuds and turnips!!! and ive always grown up with a routine in a breakfast lunch and dinner!! i cringe when people say the skip meals!! I love my veggies and fruit but i have to say i still love chocolate and struggle letting it go even though i know how it effects the body!! but one day at a time.!!

Im delighted to hear your doing so well!! keep up the hard work and it will keep paying off!! setting goa;s for yourself is good for the mind and body!!

Keep intouch and if you ever decide to come to Dublin please give me a bell!!

Yours truly

Hi Roshy the people here are great. I don't know what i would have done with out them. I have had t1 since 1991 and I am starting to have problems with my body. I can't get my bs under control and I just lost my sister who had it for 22 years. She was the most active and lively person that I ever new and I miss her. sorry about going on about myself. I hope you enjoy yourself and have a long good life.

keek 2009-07-05 22:24:37 -0500 Report

So… I got on here to say that I too was diagnosed with type 1 as a teen and would be happy to provide any support that I can.
Saphire, I am sooooo sorry to hear about your sister. How are you holding up? Message me if you need to talk.

Saphire 2010-02-26 23:51:39 -0600 Report


I am doing better but it isstill hard whenever I think of her or notice something that she would like. I know that the gods took her to be merciful and that even in death she helped another sixty people who otherwise would bee dead as well so in a way she is still alive in these other people and I am proud of everything that she accomplished during her life here on earth.

Hey Roshy,

How have you been? I have not seen you for a long while. Though the site is getting so big, it is easy to loose track of people now. Hope you are well!

Clare Girl
Clare Girl 2009-06-22 09:49:11 -0500 Report

Hi Roshy,
Good on ya for taking the initiative and finding some people with diabetes. It took me about 13 years to do that. And I'm glad that you've inspired some humour - the posts brought a smile to my face.

So, I know a PWD in Dundalk - that's the closest I've gotten to connecting with Diabetics in Dublin. However, I know about 15 people with type 1 in Clare (that's where I live - you'd never have guessed:-) I run a support group for us!!!!

I'm 36 and have had diabetes for 16 years. I'm on MDI but awaiting the pump (still). I love to yap on and on about diabetes and I have learned so much in the last 6 years between the internet and meeting others. Plus, 2 years ago I found a brill endo. I don't see a dietician because, well that's another story. I'm trying to get my HbA1c down to 6.5% so I can maybe think about having a third baby (I'm a gluten for punishment). Everyday, I threaten to give my 3 year old away but then he turns around and sings "the bearnessities" from the Jungle Book :-)

Anyway, if you have room in there for someone a bit closer to home I'll be your penpal too. You can't really beat the "Yanks" though - I even married one.

Take care and stay connected,

Welcome to the site! I'd love to have someone to "chat" with about life and diabetes. I've been diabetic since I was 10 and I'm 29 now. Please feel free to message me here. I think you'll find many people here who have awesome advice - it's a fabulous community. Take care!

roshy 2009-03-17 19:01:02 -0500 Report

hi frustrated mom!

Thank you for repling! I can understand where your son is coming from!! i was 16 when i was diagnosed type one and i can completely relate to your frustration because my mom got very angry when i coudnt keep my diabetes under control! The most worriyng part for her was that she was helpless. Sometimes she got very frustrated when she found rappers of candy or chocolate and would turn the whole thing into a screamimg match!! This caused alot of damage because i learned to hide everything from her. Type one is such a hard condition to handle and as a teen it becomes the last thing you want to deal with or talk about.

I believe if i went to counciling around the time of being diagnosed it would of helped a great deal! but your son may object to this too!! But when he feels ready he will want to talk !!

If you need any advice id be happy to help!! as i feel like i have experienced all the ins and outs of beeing diagnosed as a teen!! trust me its a very hard , difficult lonely time and if you need and information or help id be glad to offer it to you!!

Thanks again!

I am part Irish also. I have French,dutch,scotch,Irish,English,German and Indian in me. I have been a Diabetic for almost 40 years. It does get easier as time goes on. There are more people out there with Diabeties than you can know even in your home Country. Next time you go to the Dr. ask if you can post this web site on thier board and then see how many people go there also. You may be surprised.
The best thing you can do for your Diabetes is to eat right and exercise daily that will help to keep the weight down and also keep your health up. I keep checking out different Diabetic sites and reading everything I can get my hands on when I am taking a break from Quilting. I apply what sounds like it will work for me and if not then I try something else. That is the way I have learned to live to the fullest with Diabetes.

Who is Danielle O'Donnell? This discussion probably has gone a little overboard, but if it is a legitimate post, then it is about living with diabetes. The site is here to support as well as inform, I think. There is a lot of "fluff" in the discussion, however. I have made the point a couple of times previously that there are other places for "chatting" (Facebook, email, IM, etc.). Still puzzled by the mention of Danielle.

roshy 2009-02-09 06:24:45 -0600 Report

well good morning there!!!

jesus do you feel a victim of your own negativity????

ive found this site for a reason, well many reasons actuallt!!

like any other type one i feel i have the right to search for other means of support, advice, friends with similar problems and issues!!!

Another reason why i like this site is because many of the users are older and therefore have much more knowlegde AND experience then i have!! The info on facebook i doubt will be as well educational or researched

and if you havnt notieced i kinda closed the conversation when i said thank you to all the users and good night

ya wont bring me down any time soon!!!

you dont like it then dont read it or waste your time writing back!!!

but i think ill leave it up to you to tell me if i ever cross the line!!! you seem like a very level headed lady!!! your a great person to have around!!!

I think the fact that you had so many people jump on board to join your discussion just means that we all want to have some fun. It is rare to have one so filled with "real time" chat, and it is refreshing. Some of us old farts need a young'un to wake us up a bit.
You will have to share with us some exerpts from your paper...I am curious to learn about what you think on the topic.

roshy 2009-02-09 09:40:03 -0600 Report

well the real reason why i looked up the site was to get to know other people with diabetes!! and you cant get to know a person without talking to them in the first place!!!! you can learn soo much from listening to other peoples experiences!! and you can help others just by listening and giving your own opinon!!

as for the paper!! i doubt if anyone could make sense outta it! i was half dosed up on coffee and half dead in the chair while i was writing it!! but ill fill ya in on the result as soon as i get it back!!

yeah, ive being studying for three years now and ive worked with a range of different clients such as, drug and alcohol addicts, people with mental health such as depression, schitzaphrenia, young kids with self image issues and i had work experience with patients in hospitals with all types of physical and mental illnesses!!

i love the idea of working along side of some one and helping them to live and change their life in any way possible just so they can have a better day tomorrow!! i found from experience the smallest things can go the distance for someone like a friendly chat or smile!! depression is something that you can never empathise with until you suffer with it yourself. i hope you feel alot better now and coping ok !!!

you are so right about the smallist things. someone to talk to. someone that smiles at you or says hello can mean so much.
I have been going thou a hard bit the last month or so not coping very much at all you know?
Your friend Cara

So you see that you are very much needed on the site. In addition to getting help, we all like to think we help each other out. You seem like a very smart and caring young man, with a lot to share. Sounds as though you've chosen a field for which you're very well suited.
