Thank you Linzie for the nice welcome. I have beem living with Diabetes for almost 20 years. As you know it is the most wicked disease, as it has the potential to take the patient piece by piece. It is nice to know that there is a forum such as this to keep up to date, and make new friends who we might empathize with,,,,,,,,,,,Mike

Thanks for welcoming me to TuDiabetes! I finally have started utilizing my profile to connect to other Type one's. I created the profile back in March and that was when you left your message, so now I'm playing catch up.

thanks :)
he tried it out.. but wasnt so sure about it. & right now where he is like strict but free with his diet at the same time; he ate healthy to begin with.. he usually doesnt use much novolin R and he takes it by sliding scale.. - where he takes Lantus also & is on the 60g total carbohydrates per meal, so for now he decided he will just use 1/2 cc 31g syringes and if he gets where he needs more insulin more frequent he will get that one again; he liked how you decorated yours ha

Let me try drawing a smile on your face (Hope it wont hurt) in this unpleasant day. My joke:

A senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left. Amazing,' he thought as he flew down I-435, pushing the pedal even more.
Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him,
Lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110,
then 120.

Suddenly he thought, 'What am I doing? I'm too old for this,' and pulled over to await the trooper's arrival. Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at His watch and said, 'Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If You can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll Let You go.'

The old gentleman paused. Then said, 'Years ago, my wife ran off with a State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.'

'Have a good day, sir,' replied the trooper.
