I used to, in my creative early days of blogging, tried to have a feature on Tuesday called TMI Tuesday. This is hardly creative, but it is indeed Too Much Information!!
A very good friend of mine has genital herpes. When this was first discovered, he/she was quite distraught. Trying to cheer them up I did a little reading on the subject. It seems that quite a few famous people has this STD, and lead very normal productive lives.
Well documented public cases include..Robin Williams, Derek Jeter, Davis Hasselhoff, Liza Minnelli, Billy Idol, and Jessica Alba.
This gave me a great idea for a post!!
Since this is TMI Tuesday, do any of you have any strange affliction that you would like to 'come clean' with?
C'Mon, we are amongst friends, it'l make you feel better!! It can be a allergy, a condition, an obsession, something that you swallowed, maybe something that you have had removed. If you are shy....NO PROBLEM!!!
I respect everybody's sense of privacy!
I'll even go first...
I'm a full-blown diabetic, and I've been insulin dependent since 1995.
I go to the Dr. very regularly. Check my blood daily. And count my carbs and do not drink much alcohol at all. I take 65 units of Lantus by syringe every night. And I take 1 unit of Humolog per every 5 grams of carbs by injection pen daily.
I exercise by walking daily to increase my circulation. And I take particular care of my feet. I don't have a glamorous circle of fellow afflictees, I share my disease with Wilfred Brimley.
Oh, I also have a hernia that I've been putting off getting fixed. Maybe I'll share that photo on Thursday...hehehehe
