Welcome to our group, I am sorry that you have to join us but thrilled that you have found us. First things first, take a deep breath and relax, you can do this and we will help in any way we can. Now keep doing what you do and don't dwell on any one number, just try to be better today than yesterday and take good care of yourself, especially mentally.

Yes, I could not have had such tight control without the Dex.

Oh no Shawnmarie!! I really hope you can keep your Dex!! It has been a life saver for me...

Doing good! Honeymooning 2 1/2 years so far. No bolus yet.

How is everyone doing?

Comment by Parrformance on February 21, 2014 at 3:10am

I must say I feel so much better with the bolus, I knew I was feeling bad as the T1D was progressing, just not how bad.
The support here has been fantastic, and the transition has been made easier by hearing/knowing that others here have been there done that.

I imagine so, yet still a turning point as I have had the on board insulin maker working well enough to keep the shots away so long. I am feeling much better,(with the bolus) but still sad that things are progressing.
