Had a good day, a little tired but not hungry. Decided to change my profile picture since October 31 is the Celtic New Year, never too early to start. Continue
I found an electronic glucose tracker chart on the "everyday health.com" website; I like to see things mapped out on spreadsheets & charts it allows me to clearly see how I'm really doing.
Thanks for the comments. I know A1C of 6.9 is not horrendous, I guess it's all relative to whatever numbers the reader has. My diabetic…

I don't really have a lot of time today to blog about all that has been going on, so I'll make this a quick one. One week ago, we found out that my oldest son has T1. This is kiddo #2 to be diagnosed. One is almost 3, the other is 11.
This is HARD. Period. Two separate eating schedules, 2 different ICRs, sleep schedules, etc...I don't know if I'll ever sleep again. Anyhow, I'll blog more later when I have a lot of free time (If I ever will again) because I have A LOT to say about all of… Continue

Wow, what a year it has been - definately NOT one of my best and in all honestly, THE worst year I have ever had (so far). Why? Because this was the year I found out I had D. Feb 26, 2010 to be exact (never will forget that date!).
I think back on the month of March and what a WREAK I was - I am sure I might chuckle if I read my thread posts on here from back than. Some of you might remember. I think the first one was entitled something like "I am SOOO scared." Wow. I feel… Continue

Okay, let's try that again...
Hi, my name is Sheri and I don't really want to be here.
We could go around the table or the room or the whole site and agree on that, yes?
This diagnosis was a not a big surprise for me. I had a fasting blood glucose done a year ago because I was feeling really tired after meals. Sometimes stuporous. Often stumble-to-the-couch for… Continue

All the diabetics I know (most) where diagnosed before I met them or before I was old enough to remember. So naturally there was never a grieving period of time.
I heard this somewhere, ( I'm no biologist ) that if a parent is diabetic, there's a 1 in 4 chance that the kids would be diabetic too. In my family, I was that 1 in 4 chance. We're four children. Me, oldest..1 brother, 2nd oldest and 2 younger sisters. I never minded to be the one with diabetes, as a matter of fact, I… Continue

well, i've definitely had an interesting 2010 so far. i've had to miss work due to snow, which has caused havoc in the UK for sure. and today i'm 'snowed in' again - for those of you who don't live in the UK, it's just a couple of inches really, which is more than normal, and all the fuss is because it's not actually melting (which it usually does!)
anyway, it's pretty easy to keep myself busy cooking yummy things, cleaning, working, watching tv and being crafty. i've definitely had… Continue

I forget how hard it can be when you are first dx'ed with T1. I think I've got my act together now, after 4 years. I'm also convinced my life is pretty different than most T1's. I was 46 when dx'ed. The math says I will live over half my life without diabetes. I will never have to go through teen angst, courting a potential spouse, college life, job hunting, etc. I think, for the most part, I have it easy.
It's certainly not so for all. I have a young friend who was recently… Continue

There cannot be a more pleasing occassion than the birth of another grand child Jacob arrived yesterday and will be our son and wifes third child, after my massive heart attack in 2004 I thank God for letting me see all our four grand children Jessica Daniel Emily and Jacob take a look at a new born babys face to brush away all one's worries and doubts.
The photo is me in 1965 ready to take on the World if only I could find my shoes, lokking… Continue

I saw a picture here of what looked like a glucose meter with a USB jack poking out the side. So I opened it up, and sure enough a glucose manufacturer has had one out since September! Where was I? So anyway, I took a look at it on www.engadget.com
. As is often the case with web surfing, I clicked on "diabetes" there and saw loads of other really cool toys for the sugar enhanced. It is at… Continue

Hey the last entry was a relatively concise (considering my frequent attacks of verbal diahorrea) potted history of me and D.
I was thinking of all the things I wanted to say, and what life is for me at the minute and I wanted to get it all out, so this entry may be a long one, it was sparked by yesterday's 14K event and a couple of blogs that had touched me and set me thinking.
At that moment at 9pm BST (4pm EST) when I was inscrutably sure that I wasn't alone. I knew… Continue

I just received my new PDM upgrade recently and am completely excited. After playing with it for a few days now, I thought I may post a blog that would explain from my point of view the different upgrades, good and bad, between the first PDM and the new PDM.
The new PDM is a dark, almost navy blue color and is shaped more like a standard PDA. As far as size, it seems slightly thinner, but it is slightly longer as well. Not too bad though. It's about the same size as my… Continue

This is breaking news and really only applies to a very limited scope of diabetics. One of the premiere life insurance companies just confirmed they are taking a select group of diabetics at the best rate class available.
If your client is medically assessed as a true Standard rate(+25 or less), without credits being applied, then they are eligible to receive what ever Preferred rate class they would otherwise qualify for. With diabetics this will… Continue

Hello out there! I am so glad to have found this! I have had diabetes for 16 years and have been pumping for about 12 years. I am excited to connect with others who have to deal with the every day frustrations and not feel so alone! My most recent issue is that my Animas 2020 pump has been leaking for about 3 weeks. I have been around and around with the support people, and I am just now getting a replacement! Hopefully it will come in today!
Well, I guess I will just lurk around and… Continue

I am new to tudiabetes.com. I saw Manny on a talkshow. I thought this would be something neat to check out because I have always been too shy to go to a support group. I had been going to an older doctor who seemed to mostly see Type 2 diabetics. I had been seeing him since I became diabetic in 1993 and just never changed. Over these recent years, I felt like I needed a change, like I needed to be around more diabetics like me, younger and active, and to see a doctor who I could relate to a… Continue
