"Brian,You came in while I was offline for a while, so I'm just seeing your comment now. It's not the pump that makes your exercise difficult. What you did with reducing your meal bolus was a good idea, but not enough. It's surprising…"

"Hi, Neil,What's the weather like for this trail race? I ask because there's a product called a frio which a lot of people use for hot weather to keep their insulin cool. Are you on injections, or a pump? You'll want to have syringes…"

Thank you very much for your comment on my poem. I love hearing from people about what they think about it. And yes, I was surprised at how many forms there are when I learned them at school. Again, many thanks!

Hi Jerry,

Can't wait to see you and run together this weekend in San Diego! I get in on Thursday Afternoon and go home late on Monday. I hope all is well with you and look forward to hanging out with you on TUDiabetes.

hey Jerry, I just started following you on Twitter. I see we are sympatico on many areas. I was also thinking about how much I've enjoyed your poems here, and seeing you're a Beatles fan, I thought I'd share one of our more popular discussions from way back

Was just reading over some previous conversation on Diabetics who run Marathons - I think Inspirational Badass would be a good term - I know you've helped me along the way, which I greatly appreciate. Hope to see you at IMAZ (still not sure of my plans - hopefully today).
