Hi everyone. My name is Cora and I was diagnosed with type 1 in 1966. My Mom was the one who made the diagnosis. I was getting hysterical before going to be if I couldn't get a drink of water and…Continue

Cora replied to anthill's discussion 'Maybe??'
"I hear this a lot. How many people nowadays, what with twitter, facebook, instagram and whatever else is on the horizon, are actually capable of keeping a secret? Even those who sign oaths and are paid to keep secrets do not. There's the wife…"

Cora replied to Sandy's discussion 'How long do you go between infusion set and sensor changes?'
"I've also never used sensors, but as for changing insertion sites, it will depend in part on how much insulin you take. I often left it for 4 or 5 days (but not always) but I usually only took about 20 or so units per day. I think if you take a…"

Cora replied to Cheryl's discussion 'medical needs financial assistance for 21+ in Ontario' in the group Diabetic and from Ontario
"I don't know about now, but Trillium used to cover some diabetic supplies. Also, I would check with your local chapter of the CDA. They used to have programs for test strips for people who needed assistance. Sorry I can't be more help.…"

Cora commented on Stela's group 'Diabetics with kidney problems'
"Hi Jen. I was on hemo, not pd but do know a lot about it, as I had several friends on it. Could you tell us what you are frustrated about? Diabetes is hard enough and then to add dialysis is pretty tough. And the dialysate can affect blood sugars…"

Cora replied to Pulli's discussion 'Diabetes as a force for good'
"No slagging from me either. Sorry, but to be honest I get annoyed with people looking for something "good" about having diabetes. No, I am not negative about it and it has never stopped me from doing anything I set my mind to, but calling…"

Cora replied to Spock's discussion 'Ideas? Thoughts?'
"I agree with Zoe. It is the nature of D to change all the time, just as our bodies change as we age. You seem to be on the right track with the changes. Nothing too dramatic, and only doing changes once you see a regular pattern. Please keep us…"

Cora replied to LiL MaMa's discussion 'Wound healing in diabetics'
"Wound healing in diabetics is just like diabetes itself. No 2 cases are exactly alike.I have always healed well, with or without good control. But that's just me. I know of others who have had excellent control and still had problems. It is an…"

Cora replied to Melitta's discussion 'rapid onset Type 1 diabetes in adults'
"This happened to me in the ER once. Since then I always brought all my stuff and took what I wanted. I also collected a number of different specialists whose instructions are always "she'll tell you what to do". Life is much better…"

Cora replied to Melitta's discussion 'rapid onset Type 1 diabetes in adults'
"Yup! I know what you mean. I took the best care of myself that I could, but despite that (and one shot per day only of mixed R and Nph) I got complications. For the longest time no one would admit that the treatment in the 60s was bad compared to…"

Cora replied to Melitta's discussion 'rapid onset Type 1 diabetes in adults'
"I read on another message board that there was a publication by the CDC recently that suggested that 50% of all new T1 diagnoses were now in adults, not kids. Too bad that many docs are still going by old wives tales."
Feb 13
Cora replied to Melitta's discussion 'rapid onset Type 1 diabetes in adults'
"This is a really interesting thread. I'm so impressed that at least a few folks have had the correct diagnosis, or at least got help quickly. As a long term (actual "juvenile onset" from the age of 2) type 1, I often have a sort of…"

Cora replied to TheDiabetesHero's discussion 'I was just TOLD that marijuana can replace insulin.'
"In my case, it was not what I was told, but what I was asked. I met someone online and after chatting for a bit he ended up asking me......wait for it......"Is diabetes catching?" WTF????? Really? I'm no mental giant, but I thought…"

Cora replied to david-1968's discussion 'I understand DENIAL but it annoys me when Diabetics complain about their health and don't take care of themselves.'
"Thanks David. I have to say that I was blessed in having good insurance that paid for my pump (can you say "pricey"?). I started pumping after my kidney transplant. I hadn't really wanted to pump before that because I had decent…"

Cora replied to david-1968's discussion 'I understand DENIAL but it annoys me when Diabetics complain about their health and don't take care of themselves.'
"Oh Sheri, you're experience is so, so common. And that's exactly what I was talking about with my friend and her eyes and me and the pediatric nurse. No help, no understanding, and the assumption that you're a horrible pig and eat…"

Cora replied to david-1968's discussion 'I understand DENIAL but it annoys me when Diabetics complain about their health and don't take care of themselves.'
"Yup, and that's one of the other issues too, isn't it. It's amazing what your emotions will do to your glucose! When I was a kid, if I was really happy, my blood sugar would drop like a stone. It took my Mom a while to figure this out…"
