Tsk....guess I shouldn't complain!! Of our 2 children, our eldest is a "girl"....27! She's the mom of our youngest grandson...20 months old. Our son is 2 years younger than our daughter, and is the dad to a 4, and a 2 year old. As well, I have been spoiled in that they all live in the same fact they all live in our house at the moment as they had shared the mortgage of one large house, bought jointly last Summer, which went to a fire in January and lost everything. Thankfully they had insurance!

Morning Shoshana...luv the name :)
Thank you for adding me to your circle of friends!
Having been dx in 1936, has allowed you to see a bucket full of changes in diabetes management over the years! Bet YOU could tell us a few stories!!! I have 2 children and 3 grandchildren (all boys...would be nice to see a little girl in the configuration).
I was dx in 2006 with type 2....but I'm pretty sure I had it long before.
Many hugs....linda in canada.

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!
