REALLY haven't seen a lot of deals on ebay to encourage buying TBH
Marty emailed me so I hope he can get me back on track
I had a real rough go, appendix burst, surgery stressed my system and KERPOW!!! Diabetes manifested...weird,huh ?
I am a 6'5 230lb, reasonably healthy smoker( try not to laugh :P) and i always assumed diabetics were those people on scooters,toting oxygen tanks while fisting Big macs and drinking a diet coke
Oh well,so much for that stereo type image :P
The whole deal got me fairly upset and I dumped just about every collectible item I owned. I thought Diabetes was a death sentence TBH, just a matter of time before your feet fell off,then your legs,etc. My only experience with it was a friend back in the days who was a dance. He got a cut on his foot and within 3 months had 1 leg amputated then 4 months later the other then committed suicide less than a year later. I know, I sound like a 12 year old kid retelling a story, it's just something I have never had any exposure to or a yearn to learn about after that.
Once my Doc and I pow-wow'ed he told me if anyone was able to beat it, it was myself. I did not know you could beat it, I thought it was forever. So, after 5 months I was able to get my AC1 to 4.8. I was blown away that simply changing my diet was enough to eliminate the need for medication. The down side is unlike a "lose weight" diet, I can't really have cheat days since it's not something you can do an extra 20 minutes of running to fix, ripples have ripples and all that
I am hoping to buy me beautiful T fish, My ginter flags,Smokers,etc
With the market down, It will be nice if I can find bulk selling to rebuild and maybe even end up not loosing money lol
Now if only I had regained my sanity before selling all of my silver-age comics
