Thanks so much for the comment about my "pup". He is actually about 7, but he thinks he is still a puppy! He's actually cuter in person than in pictures - in the pictures he always looks so serious. But he's not at all! He's actually a goofball!

As far as meeting Manny at the doctor's - it's just that we go to the same endocrinologist and we happened to meet at a shared medical appointment (sort of 1/2 dr appt and 1/2 support group).

Looking at your page, I noticed that you are a quilter (much more advanced than I am). I quilt for fun - and have many more UFOs and unstarted projects (USPs?) than I have completed quilts.

Maybe in the next week or so I'll post some pictures of our cat and our parrot. But not the fish or the aquatic frogs - they are not very interesting to my mind! We have quite a menagerie here. :)

Take care, -- Buffy

Hi Marie! Thanks for the welcome!
My aunt had gestational diabetes during her pregnancy. I also have some friends and parents of friends who have diabetes.
I'm currently working on a graduate student project surrounding a glucometer which is why I joined the community. I'm trying to get a better feel of how i could improve on the current glucometer, make it more adapted to the user.
I'll make a thread in the forum in the upcoming days to present what the project is about and hopefully get some feedback and input about some of the propositions.
I'm learning a lot about diabetes in a short amount of time, and I'm glad to have found this community to help me in my process!

It was pretty icky, but then I spent the rest of the day in a pretty good range, except for when I went to bed, I was like at, 195. Woke up at 129, though! Wasn't expecting that, usually if I'm high and I go to sleep I wake up in the 40-50 range. Hm, I'll have to try that. I usually keep things in my purse for it, but I had used my last two juices the day before from the lows. Oh well, all is well now.

Wow, you've lived a lot of places! Where you live now sounds gorgeous though. I've always wanted to live in Wyoming or Montana, something about the rocky mountains is peaceful. I may have been stuck here my whole life, but I've been to most of the states, except west of the rockies and north of Virginia. That's really cool, I think all we see here is snakes, the random armadillo, coyotes, and the few whitetail deer. I live in the middle of nowhere, but I like it.
