Artfiezy - if you are referring to my comment about posting on the type 1 forum. yes there is more traffic and it is easier to respond/reply tpo a particular post on the type 1 forum.

Comment by Marie B on January 7, 2015 at 10:21am

She probably means the type1 discussion forum, where it will get more exposure to the community.

"post on the Type 1 forum" ??? Isn't this a Type 1 forum? It is called "Type 1 for 30 Plus Years."

Comment by Sue R. on January 3, 2015 at 6:25am

Yes, hang in there, Roger. Here's hoping tomorrow is a better day.

Comment by artwoman on January 2, 2015 at 5:14pm

RogerAlyn, I suggest you post on the Type 1 forum, that way we can respond to your individual post(s) and have a conversation.

Comment by Sam I am on January 2, 2015 at 5:08pm
Hi RogerAlyn. I have no advise or words of wisdom. I just wanted you to know you are no alone. Long distance hug.

I'm at my wits end with diabetes, insurance, medical problems, being singles, going crazy, and the meaning of life... I mean "really" tired of it all and going crazy!!! I am not even sure what group to post to. Im a Type1 (for 50 years), a pump user, Single, anxiety/panic attack. stressed out, angry, bundle pf chaos!

Comment by Annie on December 10, 2014 at 2:02pm

I do a 200% temp basal and extra blood testing whenever I have to take steroids!

Comment by skorkysmom on December 9, 2014 at 7:12pm

Thanks, Trouble, I am testing about every 3 hours and so far so good. I hate having highs like this, but the pump does a great job of getting it down quickly. And, I have taken a few injections to help! Thanks again!
