Allergies are killing me this year :( I saw my PCP today and she said to take Rhinocort (on top of Allegra and Mucinex). I asked if there was a steroid in the nasal spray and she confirmed that there…Continue

"I am very open about Diabetes, but I like to think I'm not pushy about it. I wear my pod where it can be seen. I (usually) don't care that my cgm sensor sticks out of my thigh. I test my bg anywhere I go. I don't mind people asking me…"
