"I stay signed in and my home page is "Forums" because I like to read all of them, not just one category. What will be the equivalent setting in the new system?"

Zoe replied to Shadow's discussion 'Hurry up and wait' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Yes, I'm fine with the black; goes with everything. I actually got a purple skin way back when I first started and found I really didn't like the feel of it - it adds way too much thickness. Now what I really wish is the meter/remote had…"
Zoe replied to Shadow's discussion 'Hurry up and wait' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"There you go! Just fair warning and you probably know this: There is a fair learning curve until you get used to the pump and get all your settings where you want them. For me, the infusion sets were also a learning curve as I have crappy hand/eye…"

"I went back and forth about my new Ping color. I thought about the pink and the lime green. I liked both but realized that I need to live with it for 5 years and knew I'd get really sick of both, so I went with the black. Not exciting but…"
Zoe replied to Sue's discussion 'Changed my user name'
"Welcome back, FatCatAnna. I think there is going to be a major scandal with Facebook that will blow their credibility all to hell and disillusion all the hordes of fans."
Zoe replied to Sue's discussion 'Changed my user name'
"Nice to meet you, Sue! I've had a few names: For a while I used "lulagirl" as a screen name - Lula was a much-loved cat who shared my home for 18 years. Many people I met in RL knew me as Lula. Zoe is my legal name, but not the one I…"

Zoe replied to Sue's discussion 'Protecting Pump from Water'
"Get a Ping...lol. Sorry, couldn't resist, just got my new Ping, exactly the same model as before so no new techie fun (I can live without learning curves!). Being waterproof wasn't my #1 requirement but it's one of the things I love…"

Zoe replied to Jen's discussion 'Never say "impossible"'
"I think if I had more than the very occasional day like the one above I would feel differently about getting a CGM. Sounds like it has been a major key for you and well worth it for peace of mind."

Zoe replied to Jen's discussion 'Never say "impossible"'
"Way to go, Jen! I know you keep a good attitude despite working very hard and getting frustrating results a lot of the time, and you deserve this "reward!" I'm a big proponent of the idea of "the luck of the draw" being a…"

Zoe replied to Alyssa's discussion 'Prescription drama'
"Thanks for the correction, John. I personally wouldn't have a clue being a relative newbie, born to D in the age of the "new insulins" I wonder if one day there will be few people using MDI and people will consider it the "old…"

Brian (bsc) replied to Zoe's discussion 'Diagnosis Codes'
"You are correct, the have changed the names between the 2014 and 2015 versions. Thanks for the update. Unfortunately I think that it is still somewhat confusing. MODY is part of T2. Ketosis-prone T2 is part of T1 and amazingly adult onset…"

Zoe replied to Alyssa's discussion 'Prescription drama'

Hi Zoe I was just reading some of the posts online about EZ ManagerMax.My Ezmanager max3.06 does not work my custom composer.When I hit the play button the tune doesnot play.I called Animas and they told me they would send the 3.07 version.What is the difference between the two.I just hope the 3.07 version works better.

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.
