victoza update

Posted on February 14, 2011 at 10:48am 1 Comment

thought I would add this in over here as well...many in the DOC were asking on an update...

little bit of nausea to work through, tiredness...head-achy at times...going into the 3rd week will start using the highest dose ...takes 2-4 weeks to push through minor side effects...does make me feel fuller, takes… Continue

Finally approved! & what type am I?

Posted on April 14, 2009 at 11:30am 17 Comments

My insurance finally approved my insulin pump and I should have a pink animas ping on my doorstep next monday! I was so distraught on picking between green and pink. LOL!

I've been researching as much as I can about the "type" of diabetes I have. I know many say it does not make a difference as long as your blood sugars are controlled but I guess I'm the type of person who has to keep researching until I find an answer or atleast until I come close...I don't feel comfortable coming… Continue

Meetup D-Style...renewing my faith & hope

Posted on March 2, 2009 at 1:00pm 10 Comments

When I first started on tudiabetes I was at a crossroads with my diabetes care. I was stressed out from living with the big D, researching for answers, getting no where with my weight loss journey on top of everyday living things...taking care of kids, being a wife, dealing with my moms struggles, working etc....just how to juggle it all! I had always strived for A1c always in the 6's....when I got overwhelmed I turned to the internet for even more…

Hi all! I was raised in upstate NY in a small farming community and transplanted to california when I was 14. I still have relatives in NY and will always consider it home base. Sometimes I wish to live back there again and have my kids grow up the way I country living...but california has its perks and for now that is homebase for us. I'm a wife of 12 years, mama to 2 and a stepmom to 1. Alexcina is 10 going on 15 and Nathan is 9. We…

Hey Jaimie - are you heading to the TCOYD in Albany (June 11th)? If you are - feel like sharing a room with a view? For myself, it's only a 5 hour drive from Montreal to get to - so an easy drive for me.

Hey Jaimie! It was great to see you at TCOYD, even if briefly.

Thanks, Jaimie. I've missed a lot of people since I came into rehab this last time. I can't use my computer because they're afraid to let me on WIFI. They think I will mess with their system! (Of all the ridiculous fears. Why would I be interested in their darn files?

Oh well, just keep hitting on the site for periodic updates.
