You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing. Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!
Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!
hi Jean, how is everything with you? I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.
Hi Jean. I do like seafood, but I make sure it's wild caught. I love my avocado, but seem to have a bit of an intolerence for tree nuts. I take Evening Primrose pills for diabetic neuropathy, which may or may not help. However! Wish you could get a bit more protein in your diet, but nevermind, you're doing so well. Your weight loss is really admirable. Cheers!
Hi Jean. There you are in the land of the wild Salmon! I'm so happy for you in finding the veggie diet that has improved your health so much, but I can't help thinking a little seafood once or twice a week would also be beneficial. Anyway, congratulations on working so hard, and then doing so well as a consequence.
Yes, I've definitely heard of Mildred Dilling. So great you were able to learn from her! I came late to the harp, after having played piano most of my life. I started about 7 years ago. I don't play the pedal harp, but have a definite addiction to harps of all shapes and sizes.
Just read that your a classical guitarist. Does your testing affect your fingertips and playing? I play the harp. At first, I was testing directly on my fingertips and learned quickly not the best choice. :-) I've definitely found better places on the sides and it doesn't affect my playing. I'm also a great-aunt to six young ones!
