She was fired and lost her license to practice. Knowing I was seeking legal redress against her-she subsequently moved to Ontario, Canada to avoid prosecution. Last year while vacationing in Hawaii and Vancouver, Canada, respectfully, I was also planning to visit her unannounced; however, that plan fell apart when I came down with a urinary tract infection on the very first day of the Hawaii cruise….and that was that…
Lucky her….for now!!!

How do/I does/one treat such a type? Since its onset in April, 2007, I’ve found oral diabetic medications in association with injectables like Lantus, Toujeo, and now, Humalog insulin to be ineffective in my fight to slay the beast. It appears
I’m left with no choice but to self-eradicate the “problem” myself.
Any assistance on your behalf would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
