...why there isn't more activity on the "Pumping Senior" discussion board. We're retired and have more time, why aren't we communicating more?

Good question dear 4xgran ....this 3xgran , ha, ha has been rather busy ...for instance : hubby and I were asked before supper , if we can take care of a dog with diabetes for one month , while the guardians are off to their home country South Africa for 1 month ...this requires dialogue and lots of follow up ...am not certain , if this answer kills the curiosity ...I have more :)

I think the reason is that there are so many similar boards. Also I find the issues are similar for seniors as for younger people and I get a lot of info from those boards. A good feature of the system would be to allow a poster to post same message to several boards. if you are looking for info on Dog Diabetic care check out http://www.caninediabetes.org


wallskev ...thanks for the Dog Diabetic website ...very useful for the next while and will share it with Buddy's guardians .
I agree with wallskey. I have joined so many websites and Facebook. there are so many good diabetes sites on Facebook. They are my favorites, and they are very active. I like to be where the action is.

What diabetes sites do you go to on Facebook?

T1 Hangout; I Hate Diabetes (type 1); Insulin; Juvenation; Type 1 Diabetes Support, Diabetes Daily, and several others. That will give you a start. If you type key words in the Search bar at the top of the page on Facebook, ou will get a long list of diabetes groups, or pages. Some are good, some not.
I enjoy this site more so than any other I've found. Who says seniors have more time when they retire? We're still just as busy living life to the fullest.
