I've been in Montreal since I got married (22 years). Before that I lived in England and then immigrated to Ottawa. Even tho' I speak HORRIBLE french, I get by. Unfortunately, not in the kind of work I used to do, but I've moved onto other areas to make a $$$ and enjoying learning new skills. So, if you ever make it back here, and you aren't allergic to cats (have two) - you are more then welcome to stay here at "Chateau Guay" (my husbands last name).
Hey Nadine! Thanks for the yoga pump tips. I've been experiencing all kinds of different results depending on what time of day I take the class as well. I think I'm still a work in progress figuring it all out. With all my university homework, I don't really feel like doing diabetes homework too! Do you do any record keeping other than your meter?
Hey Nadine - whoo! whoo! Thanks for the friends ad - and even better - the reason for my "whoo! whoo!" - you have a green Animas too! Do you have a name for your pump? Mine is Salvador Dali. I wrote about him last month here.
Good to see that we have an optician on board here in Tuville. So far, touch wood, no serious complications for having D for so long. Tho' I go to my opthomologist every 6 months now. Discovered recently my Mum has glaucoma, it runs in her family (so does diabetes), so am crossing my fingers, with close monitoring, we can nip it in the bud.
BTW, have you met up with Nel Peach? She's in Salmon Arms. I met up with her back in October at the IDF World Diabetes Congress. She is AWESOME!!
Au revoir for now from the snowy Montreal!
Hi Nadine- HAPPY 2010! Thank you for adding me as a friend and thanks for reading Diabetesaliciousness!! How do you like your Animas 2020? I'm seriously considering switching to the Ping and would love to here your thoughts ;)
Happy new year to you too! It's fun to vent on this site with people who really understand :) Last night at Cheesecake Factory I told my husband I was "high" all day just as the waiter came to the table. The look on his face made my new year's eve. Then my teenager added "my mom is high all the time!" I am still laughing ....
Hi Nadine: Happy New Year! I think a good new year's resolution for me is to work on a few diabetes-related improvements and tweaks. Like pulling my CGM out of the drawer and calling Medtronic customer service and seeing if I can't get the dang thing to work better for me....Nice to have support of my diabetes friends in this process....Melitta
