"Richard-I was very lucky to have a mother who stood up for me, when I was 10. She inspired me greatly. She actually linguistically ripped the head off a role model of mine who will always influence my life. When role models go head to head, you pay…"

Spock replied to Richard157's discussion 'Do You Hide Your Diabetes?'
"Richard, I understand this on a lot of levels. Non D folks are uninformed, and also many T2s I come across--no disparagement T2s. I have always been a big mouth, a talker, and an educator by trade and by heart... I have always felt it was in my very…"

Spock liked karen's discussion Changes of color and light and making the best of it all.
Dave replied to Spock's discussion 'Afraid right now'
" So glad you're doing better! Being alone and afraid is about the worst situation a person can be in. Sorry I couldn't be there too in the chat room, but was working at the time."
Spock replied to Spock's discussion 'Afraid right now'
"Yes, my pump alarms me for highs (over 200) and lows (below 80,) and my night table always has an individual bottle of apple juice on it. My husband and I have a connection routine, but I did not want to worry him last night-he probably would have…"

"I'm glad you are feeling better Spock, Hopefully the rollercoaster ride was not too wild. I really hate these dammed if you do and dammed if you don't situations where you must do something but know the results may be almost as bad as the…"
Spock replied to Spock's discussion 'Afraid right now'
"I ended up OK. The chat folks were really helpful. Had 4 oz of apple juice and 2 teaspoons of PB and then waited. Finally started to go up around 9:30PM, and ended at 147 prior to bed, and I added a small correction to avoid what was becoming a…"

"OJ always seems to blow up my BG, even a small cup. I think of a juice glass (we still have some of these little IKEA sippy cups that used to have lids for junior that are nice for hypo dosing...) of OJ, like 4-5 oz seems to jack up my BG so I…"

"Hey Spock, just got home from work and was thinking of you. How you doing?"

"LOL; we're all Druids when it comes to the whims of D!"
Spock replied to Spock's discussion 'Afraid right now'
"Thanks all. I was really frightened and went to Dave's suggestion. Am at 114, which is once again a drop, CGM wise. I have done so many finger sticks---not more for a while. Dinner was cooked last night by a host of contributors--some store…"
Zoe replied to Spock's discussion 'Afraid right now'
"Sorry you're having this experience, Spock, no way to spend a holiday! I definitely wouldn't jump to the conclusion of gastroparesis. Like most things with D, two examples aren't enough to make a conclusion. My first reaction when you…"

"Did you cook the dinner or did somebody else? If it was somebody else's recipe, there my be something different like the fat content throwing your absorption off. Especially when people seem to bring their most decadent items to holiday…"

"Happy 5775. And thanks. The community has been fantastic tonight."

Hi - I just read your comment re restless leg syndrome. I have had it since my early teens and it keeps getting worse and worse (I'm now 60). I cannot go on a long car trip, or even to a concert or lecture or movie without taking a load of requip, which then in 2 hours gives me the side effect of a major frontal headache.
I think most of my doctors think I'm exaggerating how bad it is. One doc put me on iron supplements, which upset my stomach. I even ordered an expensive TENS machine off the web, which, essentially did nothing.
I used to get immediate relief from a hot bath, but, that no longer works. Sometimes I have to just stand and read for a couple of hours until the flare passes. At this point, it is far more challenging to live with than the db. Please let me know if you have fouind anything that helps.
