Clare commented on Christine910's blog post 'Drama with the Supply Company'
"Christine, I understand you just don't need that kind of drama in your life. Certainly not at this stage of your pregnancy. The Abbott strips are all the same. The freestyle, freestyle lite and insulinx are exactly the same. Abbott company just…"

Christine910 replied to Gerri's discussion 'Pizza Experiment #7--Recipe'
"A suggestion, try grilling the pizza. I love pizza and found grilling it boosts up the flavor so much more. I brush olive oil on one side and lay that side down first to get golden brown marks on it (oh high heat), then take it off and add toppings.…"

New Guidelines???

Drama with the Supply Company

Posted on May 18, 2013 at 8:22am 1 Comment

So I used to receive my shipment of pods, lancets, and test strips on the 13th of every month. Then it went to the 15th. I get a call on the 11th saying how Abbott the company that makes the test strips I use for my meter, is no longer going to make them. So they have to send me a new meter. Now the meter I have is like a all in one kind, where I test my BS and it communicates with my pod on the amount of insulin I should have or take.

When I put the test strip in the meter and test…

I got my divorce in Oct of 2010. Custody was a nightmare. The judge we had, retired in Dec and we got a new judge. Let me just make this very clear, I hate the state of North Carolina! The only good things that have come from me moving here are Sierra, Caden and Daniel. This state claims to be for the children and what is right for them, bullsh*t!!!!!

How can a state give 50/50 custody to a father, where you have shown then pictures of him drinking and smoking pot? How is it the a…


Life with Diabetes

My name is Christine, I am 40 yrs old and I am a type 1 diabetic.

I thought it would be a good idea to tell my story, so others might be able to prevent it from happening to them.

Diabetes runs in my family and When I was pregnant with my last child, Caden, I found out 3 months before I had him that I had gestational diabetes. I only had to watch what I ate. I'm not your typical candidate for diabetes as my Endocrinologist told me. I was not over weight and I ate pretty…
