Ok, I read the forum about Dreamfield Pasta, I was curious. I went to Alberton's and purchased the spaghetti. Let me start by saying that my Scott (husband) makes some MEAN spaghetti!..ok, back on the topic...I watched Scott boil his Wheat Angel Hair Pasta; I wish I could indulge. I boiled some water, put a little salt and I can't Believe It's Not Butter in the pan. I took 25 dried Dreamfield pasta noodles, broke it in half and I cooked them to perfection; I cooked a half. I gave myself 2.90… Continue

i've thought long and hard about writing this. i finally decided that it was a good question to ask. a couple of years ago, when my husband left me, i decided that i needed counseling. since i was a total basket case it was the right thing to do. one of the questions that the counselor asked me was, did i want to die? right off the bat i said yes, but only if the good lord decided to take me. the next question was, what are my reasons for wanting to live. i thought about it and asked, how many… Continue

Diabetes has been a part of my life since I can remember. I've never known life without a chronic illness. That's simply the way things were.
For a long time, I didn't have other health issues. Diabetes was front and center. And it was easy, easy enough anyway. I knew what it was and I knew how to treat it.
But in the last two years, I've developed more symptoms than can fit on one page. At (I was then) 17 years old, life shouldn't be filled with pain, fatigue and… Continue

The issue keeps popping up in my mind, over and over again, in various disciplines and guises.
It might be called "Doing what is Right, instead of what is Safe."
More commonly, it's called "CYA" (Covering Your Anatomy).
We live in such a litigious society, that one error -- no matter how trifling -- could result in lawsuits and bad press that can bring a company to its knees. One misquote, one misunderstanding, one misapplication of product or service... and… Continue

ok of all the crazy things... the only thing I can find to do when I want something to shew on... is
Crunch crushed ice. No carb,no calories. No problems? hmmm.... I'm told that if I'm crunching ice it is because I need to be on medication for anxiety or depression. How can that be?
I'm crunching ice to avoid a high blood glucose number. Why cant anyone understand that?
What else can one do?

Eh....I really hate water...but the weird burning sensation which is not an std..so keep those jokes...is a UTI and it is so painful I can't even begin to describe the pain. I have consumed 1 Pint of water tonight and this is quite a feat for me. My Diabetes is still out of control...I'm willing to try anything at this point, even freeze dried Diabetic food sent in Diabetic friendly portions...which is indeed pricey. I'm going on a cruise to Cozamel, Mexico in November and I will definitely not… Continue

A couple of years ago, when i lived by myself for the first time, and was on a similar "take control" mission... i had a strategy, that worked for a couple of weeks.
I would get a good reading and call my mom, just for the support, and to see how it felt nice to relay that information out loud, and she would give me positive feedback and i'd go through my day.
Now, in 2008, with text messaging, i thought it might be neat to get a support network for myself by reaching out… Continue

I have been using the Omnipod system for a few weeks. I like it but I have been having problems getting my BG's back down after I had a cheat day...Yep, I said it a Cheat Day. I went to Quiznos last night, I had 2 Sammies and a side salad w/ ranch dressing; boy was it good. I gave myself some Juice (insulin) and I did an extended bolus but it didn't work. I went to bed w/ my Bg's at 170. I gave myself a correction bolus of 1.40. I went to bed, this morning my fasting was 114...Grrrr!!!! I need… Continue

My Granny was a fiesty lady, she loved to go to church every Sunday, loved to watch Young & The Restless, Jeporady, Wheel of Fortune, Price is Right, Perry Mason and Murder She Wrote (she would kill me if I left that out). My Granny loved to take the grand kids outside to play games like "Mother May I", "Red light, Green… Continue

It's so exciting to see this happen. We're now 2900 people touched by diabetes
... clearly a minuscule fraction of the world's people that are touched by it, but nevertheless a beautiful and growing family of people that make a difference in each other's lives every day!
Thanks for all that each and every one of you do for each other (and yourselves), so we can collectively live a healthier life with diabetes.

I found out many years ago that I can get the family to eat a lot more vegetables than they realize if I sneak them into some meals. Here's the recipe for a mega-batch of very veggie & beef spaghetti sauce that I made last weekend. I cook it in two large stock pots on the stove.It can be changed to vegetarian by omitting the beef or exchanging soy ground round.
In large pot(s) add:
3 lbs extra lean ground beef, browned well
2 lg cans diced tomatoes (28 fl oz)

I am really happy to have found this site. I don't know any type 1 diabetics in real life, (and have personally never met another T1 diabetic female) so I am always a little surprised when I see so many of us in one place.
I have been following Dr. Faustman's research, and through that found alliesvoice.com, and now here I am.
So I am in excellent spirits this morning.
On Tuesday, I went to see my new Endocrinologist.
This man was heaven sent,
