The movie August Rush struck a chord with me, I sat there watching the movie, crying. The result of that, a rather intense blog entry, but then again, when are my blog entries not intense...
When Will It Stop Being An Excuse

From my Hola Diabetes column, published on dLife.com > Viewpoints:
"In the Northern Hemisphere, Thanksgiving happens right around the time
when it’s easier to hear people cough in tandem while congregated in
public or private places. Sore throat, muscle aches, headaches, and
general discomfort tend to accompany cough as manifestations of two of
the seemingly most inevitable viruses that humans face every year -
influenza, also commonly known… Continue

Giving Thanks ... Thanksgiving 2007
I don't often write enough about the GOOD things in my life, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to stop and be grateful for the big and little things that make my life so much better than it could be.
I have a wonderful husband, who loves me as much as I love him. His love and caring can pull me through the darkest of days, his sense of humour and silliness brings me giggles any time.
That family and friends… Continue

I have gained so much support and insight from this website. I try to read
everyones blogs and forum articles on a regular basis, and this in turn
helps me in so many ways. I don't feel as 'alone' or isolated as I used to
feel. So I thought I'd re-introduce myself as I feel like a different
person from the one who signed in just a few months ago, and there are so
many new members these days, who knows, maybe reading about some of the
things I've been dealing with… Continue

I just stumbled across the myspace page for a song I have been looking for. It is called The Way I Am by Ingrid Michaelson. I first heard it on the Old Navy commercial. I love it! I love it! I love it! Check it out on her myspace page. Her other songs on the page are pretty good, too.

Today, my first OrganizedWisdom guide (about the Insulin Pump) went live:
It took a little while to put together in the mids of all the other things I've been working on, but it's finally out there!!
If you want to become an Organized Wisdom Guide, here's how.

yes, I should be working on statistics now, but sorry Statistics in Action
just isn't really thrilling me right now, or for that matter...probably ever. Well, I can't anyways really, forgot my reading glasses, and basically I'm teaching myself out of a book since this is my independent study. Eh, whatever I've been out of it today...first my reading glasses I forget...and my meter! Last night really messed me up...I hope it doesn't happen again for awhile. After this block, (my school… Continue

We have been battling a no win battle with our MM sensors for the last few months. They have gone from lasting at least 6 days, usually a few more days, to getting almost 4 days, sometimes a few hours more. In a moment of shear frustration, I emailed MM with my disappointment. They emailed back saying I would have to call technical support for troubleshooting.
Since that email we have moved to the arm to see if it makes a difference. We are only on day 2, so I can't say… Continue

This never happens. I must be getting old. I am wired and have insomnia from a cup of coffee that I drank 6 hours ago.
I haven't made a blog post here in ages because I've been posting at my other D-blog:
candy at midnight. If you have a few minutes, please drop by.

So my endo called yesterday (yes, my doc called me on a Sunday as he had just got back into the country...he's great!) to tell me my bloodwork results. The good news that the celiac test showed negative, the thyroid level was steady (I have hypothyroidism), and the iron was good. There was a "but" though. Along with the CBC test comes the white blood cell count, which was very low. I had no infection at the time, so it is unexplainable at this time. He tells me not to be alarmed, but doesn't… Continue

Hey there, esteemed TuDiabetes community members. I'm looking to connect with a few PWD's who are living with type 2 diabetes for a dLife project I'm working on. If you have type 2 diabetes and you would be interested in participating in a writing project for dLife.com, please drop me a line at morrone at dlife dot com.

This blog isnt about anything really! I am just on the computer and want to feel like I am doing something useful. In actuality it is great when I keep up on my typing because when I go back to my data entry job at the IRS I will not have lost any of my speed.
Oh I did do something productive today. I went to my Diabetes basics class and learned how I am supposed to eat. The dietician gave us some great meal plans to go by. I tend to do so much better on a diet if I am give some… Continue

My husband's Flexible Spending Account won't reimburse him for my pump. Reason: It's "cosmetic". What do they know?

That's when I finally have an appt with an endo. My PCP is still dragging her feet on diagnosing me with diabetes. I have a fasting bg of 128 now, and I am struggling with after meal values at 150+ despite frantic and strict low carbing. I am still scared. It's not coming down with "diet and exercise" and I feel desperate. I had to beg my pcp for a referral to an endo (not that my insurance needed it, but no one around here would take me without a referral.) as if I am making this stuff up.… Continue

Despite being very anxious that it was up, my 10/31/2007 HbA1C result was 5.4%.
Needless to say, I am thrilled. Will see the doc after T-day.
