Jean, well said again....wish I could eat popcorn. After I do I always end up at the Dentist despite all my flossing. Would be especially good tonight since I just burned my soup because I was reading TU forums and not paying attention...buggers!

Hi Jean! Thank you! Corgis are wonderful! Big dogs in a small package! Most will herd everything and anything if given the opportunity. Llyr is a Momma's boy and Awstin is a true character and very vocal about all his opinions!
Glad to see that you have found a Dr. that listens. So very important!

Of course, after your monumental speech in the now-defunct whacky thread (ok, ok, I may try to be wacky occasionally...) and running into each other all the time...

Hi Jean! My critters are Pembroke Welsh Corgis. Llyr is my older boy who just turned 13 and Awstin is my youngster who is 5. Gwennan was my first Corgi and she went to The Rainbow Bridge 5 1/2 years ago. I have been around animals all my life. I grew up with Great Danes, 5 of them, 2 English Mastiffs, 1 lovable mutt, 2 Springer Spaniels, 8 horses and numerous barn cats. I am a certifiable animal lover! Thanks for accepting the friend request and welcome to TU! We are a assorted lovable lot :o)

Too much...? Nope, just right! =) Heck, it's healthy to get a bit excited over things every once in a while.
Say it loud, say it proud!!!! Hehehehe!

I have learned sooo much here and you can also find out about 1.5. Our beloved founder Manny is a 1.5 (whatever those initials are my mind isn't working now! LOL)

I see your a Type 2. Don't worry your NOT alone here. I've been a Type 1 since 73 and I was so proud to find a place that understood what I was feeling and why I lost my temper when I was running high. I love my family and I also have a Type 1 daughter but I felt as if no one understood how I felt but have found so many here that know all the feelings that get involved when my family has said "It will pass" BUT WHAT ABOUT RIGHT NOW???!!! You are totally welcomed here!
