Marsha Paulsen Peters commented on kevin lajoie's group 'walking and diabetes'
"Yikes! I haven't checked in with this group -- or walked much -- for too long. Spring is here in Iowa (73 degree spike yesterday; up to 50+ daily) so I need dust off my walking shoes and get moving. Thanks for the nudge, Kevin Lajoie --"

Ok...didn't take came from KNITTING PATTERNS CENTRAL. Look for "Little Houses". I've made most of these.

Give me a day or so..I believe that the "Little "houses" came from a web site devoted to dish cloths (knitted).

Hi Marsha! :) Yes, I am Type I, for just over 20 years now. Makes me feel so old! I was 15 at the time. I'm far from being in tight control, but in December of 2005 when I found out I was already 9 weeks pregnant (not having intended to have a wee babe!) I got my A1C down from 10.4 (yikes) to 6.9 pretty fast. Like, in two months. I know I can do it but I just get kind of tired of it all, and there's no immediate motivation like there was during pregnancy.

I did tons of volunteer work with the Obama campaign, starting back in June of '07. AMAZING experience. I would never trade it! If you check my facebook page you can see a photo album I have of some of the highlights. Got to meet Mr. Prez a few times and his sister even had a campaign stop at my house! :)

I so wanted to be there in Iowa City today!

Yeah i know the complications can be hard to face. I know some people say that hypoglycemia unawareness is one of them. I know i feel lucky that is it so far for me after 28 years of being diabetic. My teen year were defiantly not my best. I know this website has been fantastic for me. There is so much information on here.
