Sorry, its taken me so long to get into the groove of this website lol just now beginning to get the hang of it :)
My husband is in the military and we are stationed in Monterey CA right now, I am originally from Medford Oregon. What brought you to New Jersey?
Hope to talk to you soon :)
Expecting more nasty weather this weekend. Was hoping it would bypass us cuz my son Kevin and granddaughter Samantha are supposed to visit. Haven't seen them for over a month. Miss my little cutie. Hope Phil was right. Need to see an early spring.
So are you heading down to the FL CWD? Don't forget to make your #dprom dress . I was thinking of driving down in my Smart (24 hour drive from Montreal) - but with the cost of registration / hotel - couldn't fit it into the budget - so instead - am a volunteering at the CWD event (only Fri-Sun - not as long as FL one with big eared Mickey). The Canadian one is being held in Toronto - so only a 7 hour drive for me. Hmm, wonder if there will be a #dprom there? I only have a carry on - so may have to leave ball gown behind ;)
Hey Marie! The weather might be messing with your mood. Since starting these new infusion sets I've gotten DP back got up early this morning with a 210. Changed checked it again and right now my bs is 104. When I have days like that I get totally upset!
Thanks for the info about the conference. My mom, who has since passed away, lived with diabetes for 40 years. I have the disease in my family but so far I'm not diagnosed diabetic. I have a special place in my heart for those who have diabetes.
Thanks for the link, Marie. I really appreciate it. This whole thing really depends on vigilance, in the sense of doing regular sugar readings, eating well and exercising, it seems. Everyone's experience that I've read of on this site has been quite helpful to me so far. The input of fellow diabetics is really invaluable.
As with most groups, I guess. :) I'm interested in infomation and training to continue with my dog in training for scent descrimination. So I feel I can weed out and wade through the disagreements. Thanks, though!
Thanks, Marie. Actually, the dogs are the reason I found the group. I'm training my dog, Phantom, a blue merle sheltie to be a diabetic alert dog. So thank you for the link. My BS is very wonky and I'm trying to get it squared away. I have to come out of denial. It's a big river, ya know.
