World Diabetes Day/4 year anniversary

I'm a day late with this, sorry.
Yesterday was World Diabetes Day, a day to inform people, a day to take a stand and let people know we desparetly need a cure for the millions who suffer from this deadly disease. I live in a back assward country where 1/2 the population is obese and diabetic, were there any functions here? Who knows!! Nothing was published in the papers here, I won't know if there were any gatherings, functions, displays nothing until maybe a week from now.
I was put on another expensive diabetes medication this summer called Victoza. It is an appetite suppressant in the pen injection form that works in conjunction with insulin. I was given some sample pens to make sure it worked and it did. I went to fill the prescription and it is $325.00 for 2 pens! Are they fucking nuts? Yes I did have to get a few pens to hold me over until I can find a dr., hospital, clinic here in hell that has it.

It's also my 4th year of being smoke free, YAY me!

I did stitch a little bit yesterday on a project called Give Thanks by Hinzeit, this is what it will look like when I'm done. I'm also participating in the stitchathon over at one of my groups again.

Trying to plan out my Thanksgiving meal. Will it be a healthy version, who knows but I do know I still have to watch what I eat. I am still active at SparkPeople

So, there is another post from me. Amazing aint it?
