About meditating. The best way to meditate (advice from afar) is simply to sit comfortably and breathe. Count your exhales up to five a few times. Then notice things for a few minutes: the air coming out your nose, your chest rising and fallng. Then just watch your thoughts as they arise and label them "thought", (i.e. "I hate apricots." "Thought."...."I wonder if meditation really works...""Thought."..."My pants are too tight." "Thought.") Then let the thought go and come back to watching your breath. Do this for ten minutes once or twice a day for a few days, then go to fifteen minutes. When time is up, take a few deep breaths and slowly open your eyes. You've successfully meditated! Do NOT attempt stop thoughts. That's not the point and is close to impossible. Just notice them and let them go. Enjoy breathing.... it's the most miraculous thing you do.

Oh sick wasn't the word for it! I went down to Memphis (yeah they were still expermental at the time and that was the only place doing them 100-150 miles from where I live) went in not hurting at all. Woke up in ICU and dying from pain!!!! Wasn't the best time in my life but I lived through it.

Me and my daughter have a common bond with the diabetes. She now helps me and when I first took it I helped her. It was something we used against her dad and sister. When I cooked after she took it I cooked a diabetic diet. No desserts. My husband and youngest learned it was going to be that way and you had better eat what was there! LOL!!

In my 37 years with Type 1 I have learned alot and try to pass what I learned on here. But I've also learned alot here. New teconology has really inproved thew diabetic feild and not you can work thnks to the ADA law (didn't have it when I was young and trying to work) and now my daughter is a CNA!

When I done the transplant it wasn't for me but for my kids. I done in hope that it would work si if they ever got diabetes there would be a cure out there for them. In the long run now, I decided that I wish I had never done it. Don't get me wrong it was nice to be able to eat when I wanted do whaever I wanted but there were alot of pills involved in that. About 20 a day, and if I knew that I would reject it I would have never done it. Always HOPE though! I hope they will soon find a cure for other youngsters. I took Type 1 at 10 and have now lived with it for 37 years. Yeah like I said I;m 47. My 22 year old daughter took Type 1 when she was 11 and that we now have incommon.

OH like I said Diabetes is not a death sentance! Yes I know all the things that you do are really time cosuming but when I first took it back in the early 70's we had to do urine checks and count calories. Now we have bs machines at home that work in 5 seconds. LOVE THAT! The first bs machines (that I got) took 2 minutes and you could NOT move them. Somehow or another it messed with the reading. I started pumping back in 88 to give birth to my 1st child (when I frist took Type 1 they told me never to have childern or I could pass the gene along and give my kids Type 1) Now it's not a fear like it was then but my oldest is a Type 1. I took sometime off from Diabetes when in 92 I had an expermental pancres transplant only for diabetes to come back after 7 different reqection episodes. Oh well I tryed to find a cure for it. Went back on the pump and have been pumping ever since. Not to say I haven't had a few of the other things that go wrong with a diabetic. I have and the gasteroparsis is the worst of all of them. My digestion has slowed so much that it takes me about 5 hours to digest meals now.

Your welcome! I really hope you enjoy it here as much as I do. Loads of info here! I've learned things here that I really didn't know about. And here I am a diabetic of 37 years and should have already known that! LOL!
