RIP pup. I remember the first day I came on here and you introduced yourself and we had an instant connection. I cannot thank you enough for all the chats we've had. Thank you for listening when I was having a tough time with diabetes or life in general. You always believed in me, and you see beauty in me that I am still struggling to find. I hope you can help me as you are in a better place now. I miss you already pup, I wish I could just talk to you one last time.

Love,

Caren, like you always said I was like a daughter to you, and I hope you are smiling as I write this comment as I am thinking about our first chat about plaid shirt guy :)

Gremlin invasion and frustration!

Posted on February 15, 2012 at 9:02am 9 Comments

This is the third day I've been suffering a massive D gremlin attack. I simply can't keep my #s where they belong, and usually are.

The first day my boluses just didn't seem to work, and I did loads of corrections for slightly elevated numbers (high 120s, 166 after a small meal/bolus).

Second day I woke at 115 (I'm usually in the 80s), bolused as usual because I rise just by getting up, ate nothing and was in the 180s an hour later.

Corrected by injection, changed my site.…

Cruise challenges, pleasures and stats

Posted on December 27, 2011 at 9:53am 2 Comments

Warning - a long blog!

What a great vacation! This was my 2nd cruise with my best friend/'sister'. Lots of resting, sitting by the pool, and eating! The Caribbean is so lovely, shopping always fun :) We went aqua class, which allowed us to eat in a small dining room with supposedly lighter food LOL. Truly fine dining every night. The first night was ahi tuna and it just kept getting better. I ate bread every night, and a real dessert. A chocolate croissant with my protein/fat…

8.4 to 5.9 in 3 months!

Posted on July 7, 2011 at 8:43am 7 Comments

My endo nurse practitioner walked into the exam room this am and literally jumped up and down.. my A1C dropped from 8.4 to 5.9 since February. I jumped with her LOL. She said she had some changes noted for my pump settings, but tore it up and said just keep doing what you're doing. We talked low carb a bit (I aim for 40 a day). She expressed some concern about me getting enough nutrients, which I was able to allay. My cholesterol #s have also improved, though not yet where I'd like them despite… Continue

Stuff, crap, and more stuff

Posted on June 5, 2011 at 10:28am 5 Comments

I'm writing this for me - it's a dump - so no need to read it if you don't want to hear a litany of complaints!



My boys are special needs adopted. The oldest is 28 and finally out of jail, living on the streets again and saying all the right things. He thought I'd be thrilled that he went to AA ONCE. I'm not an enabler. I give him information, resources, etc. and he can choose whether to follow up. Some days I wonder how far down rock bottom is for him. Hope he wakes up… Continue
