I have a question for anyone who’d like to answer…I know I can’t be the only person with this issue, as I’ve had diabetes for a little over four years and have read here about people who have had it…Continue
I normally rotate all of my supplies. However, I just came across a few boxes of test strips that expired in early 2012... 1 box (100) expired in January, and 3 boxes (50) expired in February. They…Continue
I have been doing a lot of thinking about my life... this is my 4year anniversary with diabetes.
It's kind of hard not to think of the bad times that this has caused.

Day 3: Monday...
I've been three days without power before. But three days without power in 90 degree heat, and also no running water...well, that's more difficult.
I guess I'm more stressed than I thought. Last night I had a horrible dream. I left my house to get supplies, and while I was gone, another disaster hit. I wasn't able to get back to my house or to safety. The dream had an awful ending.
I now know why the recommended amount of water & food in regards to…Continue
