I certainly understand. Right now, my focus is getting back into the habit of excercise! I've realized for me how important it is. I have a really hard time controlling my diabetes without it! I hope you find a job soon. I know it's hard out there right now. Please keep in touch and I will do the same!

Hi there! Did you ever find any T2s in Dallas to get together with? I'm in Dallas, but I don't have a car. I'd love to get together and walk or something as long as I can get there on the train.

That seems to be a good plan... I started off with metformin 500 mg and glimiperide 2 mg as well (2 years ago)... Then my doctor tapered it off removing my glimiperide after 10 months. It took me awhile since at first I had to make a journal of everything I eat and do...then bg test. And Im very stubborn when it came to my carb intake.
I pray this works for you =) Have a great weekend Dori!

Thank you for replying Dori. So how do you like the community so far? Im really glad your'e here. As a nurse, you may have a different perspective on issues and will greatly help others as well. I do hope we can also be of support to you. By the way, Im also a type 2. What meds are you taking?
Take care and hope to hear from you again =)

Hi. I saw your comment on the Target Pharmacy story. I did no tknow there were state boards of pharmacy. I have been having constant trouble with a mailorder pharmacy (Express Scripts) and getting insulin that has gone back and forth on a UPS truck for many days and been delivered at room temperature. They refuse to take it back because I opened the package.
I am going to call the state they ship from and see if they're the right people to send a letter to. It would make me feel better to vent to the proper authorities.
