My Pickled Diabetic Brain - Seriously!

"My brain on sugar"
First off;  Thank-you dear online friend who tipped me off to re-enable my post option to include comments.

Yes,  I feel like a big idiot.

I thought I was loosing my mind! Like maybe the stuff I've read related to having cognitive defects (brain issues) after having my melon (brain) pickled in sugar for 28 + years was finally becoming my reality.

You may,  or may not, have noticed my post earlier today, yes that one, the one about a diary, and publicly sharing thoughts, and experiences related to diabetes.

Well that my friends was a figment of your imagination. As I pull out my magic wand and erase your memories.  Just like in the movie Men in Black

If you didn't catch my earlier post today then no worries, you didn't miss a thing. Let's say it was a pickled brain thing.  

Let's just say between a higher A1C and a long SAD winter, there is still snow outside, not kidding I some how, not sure how, disabled my comments on my posts.  

Well it is now re-enabled, and I look forward to hearing from you guys, if I have any scant amount of credibility left in the DOC.

Oh, since I mentioned it; the pickled brain thing that is.  There is some research indicating us PWD do experience slower memory recall, and cognitive function when our sugars are screwed up beyond recognition.  I promise to do a legit lit review tomorrow, and write a quick post on Diabetes and Cognition.

Well, I wish you the very best!

Trev, I have still been following all your posts and thought about notifying you reg the comment box. I just thought you were trying something new by only posting your own views as opposed to listening to other peoples also, I know some bloggers have done this before. Anyway keep being the awesome dad you are and cherish every second with the kids...Im telling you stuff you already know, right?

AHhh, finally! I tried a couple times in my comments to alert you, but I wasn't sure if you would see them. :)

Reyna said...

FINALLY! I have been following you too Trev. Thanks for getting your brain un-pickled. xoxo

Ahhhhhhhhh. I can breathe a sigh of relief now knowing it was a case of the stupids and not an intentional duct-taping of the DOC's mouths ;)

I, too, shouted out to you in my own comment's section in hopes you would peek your head in and say hi, see the comment, and smack yourelf upside the head in realization you NEED to hear from us!

I have a feeling you are going to be feeling the love today, my friend. Communication in a one way fashion is interesting . . . and some do it well . . . . but . . . .well what I am trying to say is . . . Woo-To-The-Hoo!!!!!! Glad you are back to accepting our minion responses ;)

Hooray! Comments enabled again! I love reading your blog, even if I don't always comment. But I have a comment regarding today's post! My own personal anecdotal evidence of "brain pickling": When I was first diagnosed at age 11, I had really high BS (like 900 mg/dl or something crazy like that), and even after I started insulin & was stabilized, I had the WORST memory recall! I distinctly not being able to remember the word "pencil" one time! So, needless to say, I'm interested in your upcoming review. :)

Yay!!!! I've been reading and kept wanted to comment - but couldn't. I was looking for your email address so I could ask you if you did that on purpose, but I seem to have lost it. :( So glad I can "talk" to you again!

Lora said...
