What you should be reading.

  • Drew Carey says his type 2 diabetes was cured after he lost 80 lbs.  Kerri says, not so fast, Mr. Carey.  And so do I.  It is easy to shout “cure” when you make those initial lifestyle changes – I know, I was there once.  Ask Mr. Carey in a year – or in five years – if he still feels cured.  Burnout happens, acute illness that wrecks the best management happens.  Trust me.  I know.
  • Melissa tells the other side of the story – when breast is not best.  Although I am not a mother (and will not be), I occasionally encounter judgments about my own health decisions.  I cannot imagine being a mother who is judged by the way she provides nourishment for her child (through choice or through circumstance), never mind all the other controversial subjects that come with parenting these days.  Whether it is an individual making decisions about their own health, or parents making decisions about how to raise their child – we should applaud any way that makes individuals and families happy and healthy.  The alternative sucks, doesn’t it?
  • And then there’s more reaction to what Mike Huckabee said regarding insurance companies covering pre-existing conditions.
  • Speaking of pre-existing conditions, those of us with them do end up seeing doctors all too often.  George and Sara have started a group called “Waiting with Diabetes” on Flickr.  While this project is specific to diabetes, I am sure anyone with a chronic condition can relate to sitting in doctor’s waiting rooms.
  • This isn’t so much a must-read, but a must-see – thanks to Jasmine.  The title says it all – yes, the little people will never win, but they can fuck shit up. (Pardon their French.)

    People just love to use the word “cure”, don’t they? Ugh.
