Hi Janet, I made the entire quilt by myself.

How is your quilting going? So sorry to hear about your cat.

Aww! How Sad. It is heartbreaking for us to lose our pets any day but on Mother's day...that's even worse. I'm sorry to hear that.

I have only been on Lantus/Humalog for a few months. I am still trying to figure what works best for me. All my blood work and tests always come back good. HGa1C is 7.0. I do find that food seems to be the greatest factor in how the Lantus/Humalog works. Unlike most of the prevailing knowledge, bread seems to be the best carb for me. Pizza, Chinese, potatatoes are the worst. Sweet potatoes seem to work. I split my dose because I was going high in the am with 1 injection in am. When I split, my morning numbers seem to be better. Keep up the fight! Hank

Hi Janet, Nice to meet you. Today is not too cold here in Montreal, only about -5 degrees celcius and pretty snowflakes falling. It does get really freezing here though and can go down to -25 celcius for weeks at a time. I too have been feeling very cold this winter, which is unusual for me. It's most noticeable in my lower legs and feet. I do suffer from neuropathy and it is not the same feeling. Neuropathy is mostly in my toes, and feels like a burning sensation, especially at night, with discomfort with even light sheets touching my feet. My doc gave me amytryptaline, which is Elavil-an antidepressant, but when used in low doses it works on neuropathy. I started at 10mg and didn't get relief, but at 25mg it works like a charm for me. And no, I don't wear long underwear-usually just pantyhose with a skirt as I work in an office.

sorry, I've never taken Lantus. I've been pumping over 20 years, I don't even think Lantus was developed then.. I think we have a Lantus Group if you want me to link you to it.

Janet, many here have had success losing weight w/ low carb diets. start by reading Jenny's website here


I don't know anything about Alli, sorry.

Just google 'Brainwave Synchronizer"

But be careful with it. It really CAN screw up your brain.

wow good for you on those quilts - do you have a picture of them?

well, it was tough, I had to be super diplomatic and not dramatic, we just decided to pay the townshipand we're moving on...many many important things to be done like our Quilt show next year which is how we get our funds to operate for 2 years.
