Wow, you have a houseful! Hope everyone helps out, or else that's a lot on you. My parents were just here for a couple days, and it's great because they always cook and do laundry while they're here and my hubby and I are working. They spoil my five year olds too:)
I've been on a pump for about 14 years now, and you couldn't pay me enough to go back to injections! Usually the only time I skyrocket is when I have a pinch in my cannula. My last appt. with my endo. went well. He ordered a GlycoMark blood test for me next time I come in, which I've not had before. Have you had one? Evidently it is a test that measures your bs variance, so it gives him a more accurate view of my a1c results. For instance, if my a1c is 7.0, am I a consistent 7.0, or do I vary from lower to higher, and that is just the between number. He says he has been ordering that test more frequently and feels it is almost as important a gauge as the a1c. We shall see. Have a great weekend!
Another friend request :-) ...I love this ; what a way to share our UPS and downs right here on TU ; I read Toni's comment about a cutie daughter and she gets my vote as well . I am in with HI's as well...have a scratchy throat ...this is a long time ago I had feelings of getting a cold ; never a right time ...my concern : I will aim for a half marathon on Oct. 11 ...early to bed tonight !!
Hey Pamela, thanks for friending me:) And by the way, your daughter is a cutie. At the moment I am very frustrated with a high blood sugar. Waited it out to see if it was just an bend in my cannula, and it was, and now I am kicking myself for waiting it out. Should've just changed it right away after I went unexplainedly (is that even a word?), but I second guessed myself. Hate when I do that, especially since I see my endo this Monday and he will wonder what happened! He never gives me any guilt trip though, so not sure why I'm worrying about it. You ever worry about stuff like that?
Hi Pamela: Thank you for inviting me to be your friend. I'm delighted to accept. I am so happy for you that you have successfully had a beautiful child. Its an accomplishment with diabetes and not guaranteed. Aleta (in the picture) is my granddaughter, just turned 6 on Tuesday. Never knew I would live to see my own daughter grow up and then experience a grandchild. Its the best. Thanks for sharing your little love with us all. Tell me more about what is stressful for you with diabetes. For me, its the uncertainty that goes with hypoglycemia unawareness. Doing my best but never knowing when I may go way too low with no warning despite very best efforts. Feeling like I'm living my life on a tightrope without a net. So your turn. What's hard for you? Jan
Hi Pamela! Nice to meet you! I definitely understand how difficult/stressful the disease is and I really love meeting other diabetics too, it is easy to talk to them and you have one thing in common right off the bat! Hope you have a great week, look forward to hearing more from you, xo
