Hi, everyone --I started insulin yesterday and it may be a coincidence, but I felt like my sinuses started to fill up right away. Today I feel like I'm coming down with a cold.Is this a common symptom of insulin, and if so, will it go away in…Continue

O.k. I need advice. I'm a Gen Xer who has a different viewpoint on food at work than my colleagues. For several reasons food has never been a security blanket/socializing/comfort thing for me. I "eat to live, not live to eat". Also, do to my food…Continue

I am still waiting to hear of approval, but it's probably not going to happen without my doctor talking to the insurance company.
Considering I have Cancer, and my Diabetes is less controlled especially during treatments, the Animas rep and my doctor said that should get me approved. Gee, I feel like I'm jumping through all kinds of hoops, I feel disheartened.

I suppose it is because August is national eye exam month, and also because of kids going back to school and needing to be able to see well. Good job at waiting until…Continue
I e-mailed an EMS instructor from a local college with my question (about whether a type 1 diabetic could be a paramedic) and he actually got back to me very quickly. I'm going to post his response here, just in case anyone else might be wondering.

You know those moments in life that freeze, and it seems like everyone in the room is frozen but you. Time just shuts down, and you are stuck in slow motion. I have had that experience a couple of times. Most of them involve a traumatic injury. But this did not, and frankly shocked me.
My husband really does not say much about me being diabetic. In fact, I thought he really didn't even seem to understand much about it all. Which was fine by me. But this has all started to change when…Continue
