Shoshana, did you get the info about my cousin? I sent it in a message which you should get in an email instead of a comment.

Thanks for the welcome, Shoshana. Suddenly I don't feel as though I'm wandering alone in the wildnerness. I was diagnosed with Type II last June. I inject 30 units from a trusty Lantus Solostar pen between 10 and 10:30pm. I went into a diabetic coma last year and very lucky to be alive. Imagine waking up in hospital after four days and being told you're diabetic. I have been walking and trying to eat right but can't seem to lose weight. Also, back in December, my Alc was 7. Lately though my blood sugar is constantly high. I don't want to keep doing more and more medicine. Hopefully there are others of like mind on this forum with suggestions to help me. Thanks again, Shoshana for the welcome.

Hello shoshana27: Thank you for the kind words. I'm a Federal Retiree and have Blue Cross and Blue Shield Standard Option which pays for may pump with minimal cost for me. However I have heard so much about the infections and the practicality of the pump that I have chosen not use one. Believe it or not I have even been mailed two pumps and I do not wish to use one. I got Diabetes Type 1 back in 1985 before the meters and all the stuff that is now available and maybe my A1C may improve with a pump but I do not want to take the chance of infections, complications and been uncomfortable with one. I Thank You however and I'm pleased to meet you.

Shoshana, I keep forgetting to tell you that my cousin lives in Forest Hills - 69th I think?

Would you consider writing a narrative about being in France during the war? I know I'd be very interested to hear what it was like, as would many others!

Shoshana, all I can say is WOW! Mazel Tov!

thank you to add me as a friend. I can't imagine a child, a diabetic child with type 1 during the war. Do you think there was french insulin during these bad times? Your family was American? I remembered that I asked an Endo about "how a type 1 could survive during the War? And he couldn't said a word. Have a nice day. Today it's election time here.

Thank you for the support. It always helps a worried mama to hear good outcomes for a child diagnosed so young. I know things have come a long way (thats putting it mildly!) since you were diagnosed and I look forward to advances in the future to make my daughter's life and all T1 lives easier.

Hi Shoshana! Don't worry about old Richard, he is too stubborn to be sick or die. Lol!

I do experience burnout sometimes. I post on too many websites and in too many Facebook groups. It gets tiresome, so you don't see me much then. I have been writing blogs and have my own blogsite. That is a change of pace.

Thanks Shoshana! Makes me happy to make you smile ;)

So glad your mammo was clear! I had breast cancer in 2005 and am a little aggressive about my friends getting theirs.

Happy that you like the group too - there is more to our lives than D, and nice to get to know people in other ways :)
