"I'm sorry, Stuart, but though it's obviously well-meaning, I find your response rude. "Stupidity", "dead wrong", "*%_#_(" testing" Whatever happened to YDMV? I don't drink carbonated sugar, I…"

"It sounds like the nurse is working on the old "exchange system" which is pretty dated. I can rarely tolerate that many carbs at breakfast when most of us are more carb sensitive. And I would much rather use carbs for actual food than…"

"I did it in my early days, but I realized I was a hazard to society! I might go 2 minutes or so if I'm stuck on the phone or other inconvenient thing, but no more than that because it just drops so dang fast. I have checked my BG in line at the…"

"I'm the same - with the boxes that are "suspicious". I have to admit - because I don't stock pile like some people do - I'm stuck. Though touch wood - so far - no issues as the letter warns. I think though if I was going on…"

Zoe replied to Karen's discussion 'Anyone else suffer from this?'
"When you say "if my blood sugars are not spot on" I'm assuming you are referring to even minor highs and lows. No, I have never heard of people experiencing that with minor flutuations. Have you spoken with a doctor about it? I think…"

Zoe replied to LilliD's discussion 'Timing a Bolus'
"As Dave said, we are all different. But I generally bolus about 20 minutes ahead. I do seem to have some leeway as I sometimes am ready to eat sooner and sometimes things take longer. I always add in a correction if I'm over target before my…"

Hi ,

You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing. Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!

Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!

Zoe, My comment was not directed at you; if I didn't make that clear, please let me say it now and remove all doubt. I do have to say, however, that I think you are wasting your energy trying to reason with someone who won't be reasoned with, and who simply will not hear what you say. You're attempting to move an immovable object.

Best,
David
