"Hi Judith, I'm going to try chamomile and mint-sounds yummy. Hey Sigelopisan, how much did you limit your carb intake? The ADA recommends 45g-60g of carb PER MEAL. Is this what you were doing?"

Loved your blogs. I am also a nurse. But that doesn't make it any easier. Matter of fact I make a poor patient cuz I QUESTION everything. I also take Byetta, Metformin and Amaryl. When I was in the hospital they took away my meds and put me on Insulin and really messed me up. Went from Highs to Lows like I never had. Thank God to come home and manage my own meds.

My son also misses Penn State. They were great years for him. He graduated from Earth, Minerals & Sciences with a Materials Science Engineering degree. Was fortunate to get a job in Pittsburgh starting early April. Works for US Steel. He was home for a few months till he got a job. Was great timing cuz I had been sick and had surgery, out of work for 3 months and he did a lot to help me. Was in the hospital 3 times between Christmas and mid Jan. I completely understand about the bills. It gets crazy trying to keep up with them. Take care = )

Welcome. Hope you find the help you're searching for here. This is a wonderful site filled with amazing people. Good luck with your fight against Diabetes. Feel free to ask anyone questions. Join the PA Diabetics page, eventually I'd love to try to get together with some but my life has been busy for the last 6 months with health and family issues. But wishing you luck, you have already done a good job of brining your A1C down .
PS - My son just graduated from PSU in Dec. = )
