I've been a type I Diabetic since age eleven and don't believe that Diabetes should be considered a "tragedy." More of an annoyance this medical condition that demands my time, attention, and a seemingly endless supply of cash. An annoyance I take very seriously because, if I don't, that's when things get weird. .

Hello! Thank you for having me as a friend dgzee!
I'm in Canada...in the southwestern part of the province of Ontario. I'm a wife of 34 years (hubby is also diabetic), mom to two grown children (one 29, the other 27), a grandma to 4 lovable little boys, a teacher, and before that an illustrator (still do some) and graphic designer....I speak French fluently, I read, history fascinates me, I paint, sing, walk, garden, ski, ride my bike....did I mention "read"? I love having friends over, I bake/cook, am an eclectic music lover, an animal lover...the ocean...ah the ocean...it speaks to me! Oh...and I have diabetes (and a few other things).
Nice to have you as a friend!!! Tell me a bit about yourself and keep in touch, ok?
hugs....linda

This is my first blog post here at Tudiabetes.com.



For the last few months, I've been fortunate to enjoy the assistance of a close friend in complying with the daily drudgery of monitoring my sugar levels. He lives in California, I in Illinois and at least a couple of times a day he BlackBerry messages and tells me to check my blood sugar or message back where I am.



Yes, I see some of you there in the back row smirking and raising your eyebrows. Lol. Perhaps not everyone… Continue
