thanks for the welcome :) I'd love to attend a meetup of t1 diabetics in NYC - where do I look for them? I tried joining one on meetup.com but still waiting for them to let me lol Don't really know many t1 diabetics in the area so would be great to finally be able to meet others who understand what it's like :)
What am I doing now? Babysitting! I got so upset with my middle g-daughter (Savannah) yesterday b/c she just WOULDN'T LISTEN to me no matter what I said. She wound up paying for that one. I can take & take but once I've had enough.........Well watch out. LOL! Other that that I'm doing fine.
I'm so sorry your loss. You can never be adequately prepared. Life has been iputting you through the paces lately. Your BG being high probably has a lot to do with that. Don't be a hero with the mouth pain. Take half a pill if you need it or switch to advil (or whatever your doctor approves) to take the edge off if you need it. You may think I'm completely crazy, but I still have chats with a friend I lost a few years ago to ovarian cancer. I swear I sense her sometimes. I know -- goofy. Maybe it's just the memory of the comfort she brought me that comforts me at those times. But whatever it is -- it has always kept her safely in my heart even though she has moved on. Although I miss her tremendously, there is something of her that I still can reach. I hope in time you find similar solace when you think of your friend.
That was fast for her. I guess when your number's up your number is up. My friend please rest and think on the postive side. Yes I know it's hard but your already doing so by saying she's in a better place. OMG when my mom passed I really felt all alone thank God for this site! My whole support system was gone. My mom, bless her, always tried to make me feel good about myself (my dad was another story) I missed her soooo much thatwhen a song came on the radio that remibed me of her I would start crying. I HAD to get a grip! I joined this site when there were only 500 here (maybe less) And Manny helpped me so much by making me feel like I was finally part of somethimg positive. Sorry to hear about your friends husband too. Life isn't a bed of roses that's for sure!
In other words STAY HERE WITH US AND WE CAN HELP YOU GET SOMEHOW OVER THE PAIN!!!
Now why am I telling you this you know how we all were here when your dad passed?
No she isn't on a pump,I went and learn how to take better care of her by watching everything she does because as now I can see where she would forget what she was doing and now I fill up her shots myself and am learning how to give it to her. Those people at the diabetic clinic are working with me instead of again't me,thank u 4 asking.
Hope you are feeling good. I hate the dentist more than anything. I hear they have a high rate of suicide cuz so many people feel that way. But if they put you to sleep its not too bad. I work with a girl who is having all her teeth pulled (yikes : O She's been just getting Novocaine they do 4-6 at a time. She is a fragile diabetic and has gum disease. I had an terrible day today. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
Sorry about not replying right back. I went to the clinic and there were very helpful about teaching the proper way to fill up the Syringes without getting air in it. So I am a learning the ropes. Take care of your selfs.It always help when someone is helping you.
I've got Dee (NZ Roche Pump Manager) on to it now and she is getting in touch with the software developers to see if she can sort it out. If I still don't have any luck. I'll get on to Jake.
OMG it was one hell of a rollarcoaster and I had Amarie the whole time yesterday a little later the non listening one (Savannah) came over I told my daughter to take BOTH of them home last night. I felt so bad.
Brett done it. I practily begged him last night to light up our state and he DID! YEAH!!!! He came to my page and ask me if he done it right and I went over to the map and there it was TN light up like a Christmas tree! So proud finally I got ppl to get the state light up. Many thanks to him
Thanks Hon, yes it hurts. I am up to I believe #6 on the Laser. Going on #7 soon. Thanks for your message....I do okay before and during...it is afterwards I get such pain in my temple area. Drugs?? Oh YES!! LOL Just wanted you to know I have a fear of the dentist too...hate to go. I have had a few molars pulled in the last few years. I love my dentist, he is very kind and gentle. Know how you feel. Hope you are doing well. Love ya sweet lady!
