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.

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."

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

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

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!

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!
