Oh Marie, I know how you feel. Finally got Becky (my dad's wife) off to herself yesterday and got some REALLY bad news. More or less be ready at anytime for something to happen to him. His cancer in his kidney duck near his liver is growing by the day and their a vein there that when it eats through that it's the end. Atleast you have brother and a sister there to help w/your dad. I feel so alone in this fight b/c we all know I'm the only one here. Did that sound selfish? But sorry to say right now that's how I feel. Did you catch the blog New here by crisate(?) she's only 19 and having trouble right now. She's had D since 3. It helps me to help other's out when I'm having my own trouble. I pm Robyn b/c I knew my feelings were to upset and had her leave a message on her blog. I knew she could do it! Robyn took alot and said it in a good way!

LOL! Got it printed our and just waiting for that day! LOL!

Rant all you want to! As you know I had that whining fit the other day! LOL! You know what was so funny? When I read back over it I could see why ppl thought the only thing I was ranting about was the tea! I had to laugh at the post myself after I cooled down enough to read it and think like someone else! Cathy said couldn't I just take some tea out before she put sugar in it I had to explain to each person there personally my g-mother put the sugar in it while boiling it!

Did you get that pm from Reed? If not i will tell you what he said ion a pm b/c I don't know if he want's it all over the TuD page or not?
At 7:54am on June 22, 2010, Doris D said…
OK Marie I will try to hold things down from this end! So nice of you to have everyone praying for Reed today and you put it up on your page too about his bioposy! Your heart is always in the right spot!

Awesome picture on my page Marie! If you ever come up to Canada for a visit - during the summer time of course - you'll have to come out for a sail with us! You might have some tricks up your sleeve to share with us - besides having a parrot on your shoulder ;)

I was born in Newark NJ but lived in Ca for 40 years and then moved to Mobile AL. I did grow up and graduate high school and go to a year of college at Rutgers before moving to CA.
Are you still living in Newark?
I have family in Edison.
Thanks for the greeting.

Tanya's response with link to a previous discussion very useful for Matthew as well ...I am still baffled, why I can't locate the other one either. I recall ( Canadian ) Johnben stating about the insulin requiring " proper temperatures , when in transit ...Oh , you found , you smart lady !!...I just went back to Matthews posting .

Hi Marie. Things have been o-kay for the most part. I was just real down last week and was having a hard time finding a way out. But thanks to my dfamily here I am making a little way out at a time.

Hi Marie,
Thank you for the comment! That question about why some come and stay and others leave is a perplexing one!

Manny has been very supportive on the work I'm doing and I can't begin to thank him enough! I think its very important for us health communicators to talk with the medical side to add a new perspective and hopefully new ideas.

I call myself type 1, but I may really be 1.5....I was diagnosed about 13 years ago...I was 33.

Thanks for the support,

Marie , do you recall , if there was a recent discussion on " getting insulin from Canada " ? ...there is a new posting by Matthew Richards inquiring .

WOW you were up earlier than me this morning! I got up (our time at 6am) but had to take a shower and get ready foranother day at my grandmother's so I won't be around much today! I bet Ed did see a sight! I would have LOVED to see that! Never seen a plane land on water except for the TV! My bs #71 this morning I thin the other bottle I had late last week went bad so i threw it away and got over those 200 waking up in the morning! That really only lasted for a day or 2. My bs were all high using it!
