I think it was here at TuDiabetes that I read about some other women trying it. I wanted to give the usual places a rest - so I went for it. Easy-Peasy. I used the comfort-detach which has a really short 90 degree metal cannula. So it doesn't go in…Continue

What is Next?

(Blog Number 200 of 200)

Last year about this time, I was contemplating what could I do that was big, might be meaningful and could be useful? I decided to write 200 Blogs in one calendar year and place them on the TUDiabetes site. So on April 29, 2013 I posted a blog titled “Introducing Rick”. Its first line went like this
