Hope your mouth feels better. This 1st week back was bad. I was exhausted. We are leaving in the AM to go to Pittsburgh for the weekend in search of apartments for Pete. He will probably be leaving beginning of April = ( Gone till Monday night. Take care.

I'm glad your mouth is feeling better. Did it at least distract you from the discomfort in your hand for awhile? : ) Hey, I'm looking for rays of sunshine! After all you have endured lately, you are due for some solid uneventful weeks. At least it's supposed to be nice this weekend. I hope you get a chance to enjoy it.

He's18 and he was in the young marines as a child, we're hoping that will help. He told me he has but I don't think he has, not while we've been together. We were actually going to talk to someone this week coming up, there is an office I believe in Holly. He's scared to go though because of the rejection. I don't really know what to tell him or how to help with something like that. I was born with stickler syndrome which caused me to loose my sight but I still feel like I can't understand where he's coming from.

Hi Marie,
Very nice of you to introduce yourself. This looks like neat place and I am already happy to be a part of it. Nick

It's just that him and I both know that there are people in the marines with type 1 but they were already in the marines when they found out they had it. so I'm wondering if there are any loopholes.

Hi Marie,
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 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.

Thanks for the comment. I have had my Spirit for 4 years now and I'm about to change to the OmniPod if everything works out ok. I think I'm going to enjoy not having the tubing.

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!


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.
