Hoping folks here can help with a question about glucogen versus glucagon, brought up by an experience today when I went to get prescriptions. Is there a significant difference between glucogen and…Continue

Hi Muragaki! I am sorry for your loss, three funerals in three months is a lot. I am trying to wreak havoc where ever I can. I have been okay. Just trying to deal with the loss of my grandmum. Keep doing damage. Live life to its fullest. Be well my friend.
Friend...Are you okay? Is there communication? I am holding you and yours close in my heart. Has anything changed in terms of offering support? Another payday next week so we can make another small donation----same place? Or have you found one more effective lately. My husband is an emergency manager and we are very aware of how Fluid these situations are!....Hope you are caring for yourself so you can stay strong.....
Thanks for your comments. We are a diverse community with diverse opinions. People should speak their mind, I like that. I don't care about being called wrong. I have been wrong. People should weigh in on matters. What is good about have a large community, is that our discussions can reveal the truth even when individual opinions differ greatly. It is the "wisdom of crowds." I never take things personally, and I always try to remind myself that someone who disagrees with something I say may turn out to be a good friend in the future.
Hi, thanks 4 the poll. I found it quite reassuring, especially as I suffer with mental health probs and feel down post of the time. I am glad I am not the only one. My mental health problems extends to an almost complete denial of my T2 diabetes. I no longer take my medication and my blood glucose is permanently in the 20s - reading taken now 22.4. I have 4 young kids with special needs: aspergers, ADHD, behavioural problems and autism!!
I took the poll and answered yes. In reality, would I do it, probably not. I am so glad there is a forum like this here.x
Hi Muragaki, thanks for add too! And she isn't from China, but her mother is! It's funny that most of the Asian people i meet while out with her automatically know she's 1/2 Chinese without seeing her mother too, but it does earn me some suspicious looks from time to time. Even had a lady grab her by the arm to try to "find her parents" when i was standing right there. Oy! I think Sky learned a few choice words that day, heh.
Thanks for the friend request. I haven't consciously dropped anyone, but one person, that I can think of... so I know you must not have been on my friend's list yet. No problem on me answering. This is a horrible situation that warps and bogs down the mind... and affects families in terribly scarring ways... And it leads people to want to make judgments and lay blame. You see it even now in the Arizona killings tragedy -- people wanting to lay blame everywhere... To everyone and anyone who might have remotely contributed... It's the nature of human beings, especially when it is something soooo poorly understood.
