World Diabetes Day #WDD


World Diabetes Day is November 14.  This day is celebrated annually as a way to advocate for awareness, prevention, and screenings.  Events and actions are occurring around the world by the International Diabetes Foundation, which covers over 230 Diabetes Groups in 170 countries.


Research shows that 1 in 2 people in the world currently living with diabetes is undiagnosed.  On WDD, the IDF is offering campaigns to help people at risk to get diagnosed.  Spreading awareness of these statistics and campaigns can help people get the proper care.

The Test2Prevent campaign is aiming for 1 Million screenings around the world.  The Eye On Diabetes campaign is encouraging those living with diabetes to have eye check-ups, to prevent blindness.  In some countries, blindness and amputations are common.


  • In 2015, there were over 400 Million adults with diabetes.
  • In 2040, there is a projected number of over 640 Million adults who will have diabetes.
  • 75% of these adults live in low and middle-income countries.
  • There are 5 Million deaths each year.
  • The cost of diabetes care is 670 Billion.
  • More than 542,000 children live with Type 1 diabetes.

If you want to be involved today in screening or sharing, visit HERE to get your App.  You can download the Blue Circle selfie app.  Hopefully, today the IDF can reach it’s goals:

  • Screening for type 2 diabetes is important to modify its course and reduce the risk of complications.
  • Screening for diabetes complications is an essential part of managing all types of diabetes.

How to Fight EDS Fatigue at Christmas


Decorating my house for Christmas is one of the highlights of my year.  At least, it was before I started dealing with the severe fatigue and pain of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.  When I was younger and stronger, the decorating could be done in an afternoon very easily.  I’ve learned how to trim-the-tree in a different way, so that I don’t pay for it with a few days in bed.

When you live with EDS or some other fatigue-causing illness, everything you do has to be adjusted.  The best option for a project like this is to have lots of help.  My family has grown up and aren’t available to help me.  Hubby helps with getting everything out of the attic, and then it’s up to me.


This year, I started very early.  I was in the Christmas spirit and wanted to enjoy the beauty for a longer season.  I just made the following changes to my decorating schedule:

  1. I spread it out by decorating over three days instead of one.  In this way, I could do a little at a time.  I did have more muscle pain, but didn’t collapse from the work.  The first day was the day for setting up the tree.  With an artificial tree, I spent the time putting all the limbs into the tree pole.
  2. Doing a little less – The second day I added the lights to the tree.  I’ve gone from 3-4 strands of lights down to two.  The tree still looks beautiful, but is easier for me to get done.
  3. Take extra breaks – The third day was the day to add the ornaments.  This takes a long time for me.  The best way for me to handle this was to take many breaks.  It took much longer to finish, but prevented severe pain in my back.
  4. Don’t get over-heated – It’s important to have a comfortable temperature in the room, so as not to get over-heated.  I kept the ceiling fan on.  This kept me fairly cool.
  5. Going to bed sooner – After doing so much more physical activity than usual, I rested more each evening.  Going to bed a little earlier helps fight fatigue, too.

Now, I have my lovely tree up and lit.  This is so cheerful and welcoming!  My family and I can enjoy the holiday seasons and I didn’t have a pain flare.  I’m thrilled with the Christmas season and the carols will be playing soon.  I wish you all the best as you attempt to enjoy the holidays with chronic illness.  It’s a challenge, but one that we all will aim for.

Thank You Veterans

We all owe our gratitude to American Veterans for their sacrifice of time and even lives given.  Beginning with the Revolutionary Veterans through those who have served in this time, we know they were the ones who gave and preserved our freedom.  They should be treated with respect and promises made to them should be honored.


Like you, I have many in my family who have served and continue to serve.  Today, I say “Thank you”.

Some of the veterans in my family tree:

James Stark – immigrated from Scotland to Stafford, VA.  James records show that he served in the Revolutionary War.

Return Ira Holcomb – my husband’s 5th Great-Grandfather who also served in the Revolutionary War from Connecticut.


Enoch Holcomb – served in the War of 1812 in the New York  2nd Regiment (Swifts).

D. Lee Ehrman – landed on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in World War II.

Herman Lamar Ray – Rear Admiral commanded the USS Philippine Sea in World War II.


L. Ray Stark – served in the Korean conflict.

These are just a few that I’ve learned about in my search for ancestors.  I know I’m leaving out numerous veterans in my and my husband’s families.  But, I just want to say Thank You, to them all.
