"HAHA agreed on the time thing! I am a teacher to and for a while we had to do "lunch duty" where we did not even get a second away from the kids! I am sure some people would disagree with this, but after running around and leaving my kids…"

"Zoe, I am a little late on this one, and probably will start another revolution, but here are my thoughts about it....dirty restrooms, uh, no. I won't do it there, not because of the germs, but because I do have a little more dignity than that…"

"Wow! So I have mixed feelings on this. When I was in college I pretty much ignored my diabetes ( word to the wise this is a bad idea) at one point I finally decided to pay attention again. I quietly checked my sugars no problem. i put my vial of…"

"Kim; I've had Type II Diabetes since 1986, but know very little about Type I. I'm STILL learning. Do Type I's normally go through those 'swings' you talk about, often during a day? Are they really that noticeable? And how…"

"Is this anything like nursing in public? I haven't gotten to the point yet, where I should always take ONE of my meters with me, and I USUALLY don't take my SoloStar pen with me (I inject at 10:30 p.m., to avoid doing it in public). I…"
