Join Cherise, George and Scott and special guest Rick Phillips, T1D and Rheumatoid Arthritis
In 1974 I was a typical guy; I loved the outdoors, riding bicycles, cars and of course I had an interest in girls. My diagnosis was not at all unexpected. My mother had type 1 diabetes as did her sister who unfortunately died when Mom and she were children. But the truth is; I had lived with diabetes my entire life, first in vitro as my mother had gestational diabetes and then as a child when she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
Then while visiting Disneyworld, I became very ill, was rushed home to Indiana and admitted to the hospital. I had my first insulin injection even before I was admitted. I was released from the hospital on my 17th birthday. I learned two things that week. Illness can happen any time and Disneyworld is not always the happiest place on earth.
For the next 26 years I was reasonably self-sufficient. There were no major illnesses or issues. But then I started to feel awful all of the time and I was having difficulty moving, walking or even sitting. That was when I was introduced to the new world of Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was in the middle of my career and having RA was not a part of my plan.
I worked for 12 more years after diagnosis with RA until I was unable to keep pace and had to find a different purpose in life. So in 2008 I accepted (with great reluctance) disability retirement from my employer.
The truth is often forgotten however. I am first and foremost a husband (Sheryl and I have been married since 1977), a father (2 wonderful sons), and grandfather to 3 of the most charming, intelligent, and awesome grandchildren (I know opinions may vary).
But through it all I still love bicycles, collecting things, laughing a lot (mostly at me), sarcasm, and most importantly having a good time.
Running with a pram is a great idea and can be both fun and rewarding for the parent as runner and the child as passenger.
It is however not as easy as it looks and in response to a listeners question in this episode Sue reports on running with a pram.
Sue has also posted the running with a pram content as a blog post. Click here to read.

Stephanie is combining a "vintage" interview from the 2012 election cycle in California with a current agricultural disaster in Florida. It seems that the only solution to the diseased citrus groves in the Disneyworld state is to bring GMO oranges to town. In this 2012 interview with Jeffry Smith, author of Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette, and the founder of The Institute for Responsible Technology, you will understand what is at stake and the tricks of the GMO industry. After listening to this interview, the entire argument for bringing GMO Oranges to Florida will be shown as a "bad idea" See the Blog for a full discussion http://realfoodempire.blogspot.com/2013/07/gmo-oranges-not-good-idea.html
