D Blog Week 2015 Day4

Today let's talk about changes, in one of two ways.  Either tell us what you'd most like to see change about diabetes, in any way.  This can be management tools, devices, medications, people's perceptions, your own feelings – anything at all that you feel could use changing.  OR reflect back on some changes you or your loved one has seen or been through since being diagnosed with diabetes.  Were they expected or did they surprise you?

I would love the biggest ever change to happen..   a cure..  but.. well we all know that isn’t happening anytime soon sooo…

The next best thing is for the insurance companies, endo’s, supply companies, and pharmacists to work together and not make us constantly battle to get things covered. 


If we could get the world to understand how serious d is it.. Holy guacamole that is asking a lot. I know in all reality that will never happen. I know before d in our life I had no clue. So I don’t even know why I would want this to happen . I just wish people would get it.. insurance companies, endo's, supply companies and pharmacists.

Dblog Week 2015 Day3

Yesterday we kept stuff in, so today let's clear stuff out. What is in your diabetic closet that needs to be cleaned out? This can be an actual physical belonging, or it can be something you're mentally or emotionally hanging on to. Why are you keeping it and why do you need to get rid of it?

Is this the post that helps me let go of being scammed? 

Nah never will I get over being taken advantage of like that.  

But.. I have had to let it go..  I have distanced myself from all things related to diabetic alert dogs.  If I dont.. I feel enraged all over again. 

I used to try and comment on every post I came across to share my story. To help others from the same nightmare my family has been through. Now I don’t. But also its different now..  A simple google search of diabetic alert dog scams and you will read a plethora of information on this org and how many, many, families like mine have been taken advantage of.  When we went through the d.a.d process there was no bad information on google.  That was a few years ago and I am grateful that our stories have been shared so families will come across them and steer clear.

There is still many families getting scammed by this jerk and almost every day a new family is reaching out to someone that has been scammed asking for help.

Currently 32 complaints filed with the Virginia Attorney General and that’s just including families that have reported their complaints.


I can also clean out d supplies I am a bit of a supply hoarder J
