Hi. Been pumping since Thursday. First site change today. Had to do it twice and had trouble getting the needle out easily. But it's in and working for now so that's good!! I am frustrated but getting support from the website. I live alone so if I have a question or want some feedback I can put in a question and get direction. It has been sooo helpful. Thanks for thinking of me.

Oh yeah one more thing I've found if I eat anything like pepper or sausage (hot or mild) it will upset ur diagestion and make u really hurt with heartburn or anthing like that u might wanna do what I done and take any spicey food out of ur diet. I done the samething with chilli and I sooooo love it

I saw what u posted in the gasteroparis group. I tend to have all those symptoms + it takes me about 4 hours to digest any meal. My bowels don't act everyday either. I wind up taking stool sofinfer to get them to work everyday but it does get sooooo bad that I have to take a laxitive to get them to work. Life huh???

I'm sorry but yesterday was a day of drs for me. I take LOADS of meds for it. Wait I'll go find the names of them (and really they still don't work I've gotten to where theres only a few things I will eat & sometimes that don't work either)

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.
