"Great idea... I'm going to try it tonight! Also, the "soft taco" size (8"?) are perfect for an individual, personal pizza. I think they're 15g carb, with net-carb (subtracting fiber) at 7g or something. Essentially makes a…"

Tell us more about you (optional)
I studied in the fine arts in high school and went to study it at the Art Institute of Atlanta. I returned to college but obtained a Bachelors of Science in Biology. Later I returned to obtain my Masters of Education in Art but I lost my job like so many others and that put everything on hold.
I worked in healthcare for 12.5 years as a sleep technologist, 3rd shifts, and a volunteer EMT-B for 9 years. I like to help other people.
I was diagnosed with diabetes in November 2007 after returning home from a memorable trip to Italy. No one in my family had it so it had to be a mistake, right? I could not fight the diagnosis with weight loss, exercise or food choices. Extreme fatigue, lack of sleep, extreme thirst and hunger was a routine at that time. Nothing worked to beat the diagnosis. My levels would swing from 95-398 before Janumet was added. My Endocrinologist thought I had LADA due to not being but a few pounds overweight, no one in my family having it and my Mom having Celiac Disease. Information on the internet was slim and other professionals scoffed at the idea when I mentioned it. Ok, so I am deemed crazy by other doctors on top of having to deal with wacky diabetic things. It would explain the lack of relationship to food and my glucose levels and possibly why my levels increased 200-300 digits with heavy cardio. Everything was working ok for a while on Janumet 50/1000. My base levels increased to over 200. My new healt providers tried Amaryl which did not touch the levels for 3 weeks. Now, over the past 2.5 weeks, I became insulin dependent with base insulin and fast acting due to my swinging levels from 200-508. I now only peak at about 300...which is a great improvement but I am still in the adjustment phase.
I am married to an military NCO and am very happy. On the same day I got fast acting insulin (9-11), seems the whole world fell apart too. Hubby got a call saying he might be sent overseas for a year deployment next year.
I have to master my glucose levels so that if he is sent away, he will not worry. I have to master my glucose levels as best I can.
We have no children but have a fluffy doggie that is kind of like our child. She is an old doggie but she has lots of life in her still. :-)
