hello!! Thx for the sweet welcome! Yes I am recently dx'd with Type 1 diabetes. It's goin. I started a blog to basically journal my new journey as a pin cusion, and insulin junkie!! LOL! It's getting a little easier to poke myself w/needles. I am hoping to get a pen nxt...movin up! I am hoping to learn more about T1.. and I am barely getting the hang of eating right! IT's hard, but you know what? I am not going to let this disease control my life!
Hope your day is blessed!

Well, I've never had that feeling, but I would assume it's like completing a drawing or other work of art! That sounds pretty cool though, I've never heard of those types of quilts before. I didn't know that about Houston though, cool. May I ask where you're from? I'm from the central Texas area, I just put Austin because I like to be safe online. I wish I could tell the grocery store to stay stocked up on Juicy Juice 4.oz Apple juice, because they were out today. And my blood dropped in the middle of the store. If only they knew it keeps me alive! I didn't have anything to treat a 47 this morning, so it was kind of frustrating.
Yep that's his birthday!! Yours too??? Great!!! Atleast something was done right on one day! HA!! A baled Eagel??? You know I've only seen maybe 2 in my entire 46 years?? But boy are they awesome!!! Nothing like an injured hand. Ya' know we really don't know how much we depend on them til we don't have them to use! Within like 1 year I had carpal tunnel surgery done on both of mine then got a stupid trigger thumb surgery done on my hand. Ya' really don't think about how much you use your left hand (being right handed myself) til you don't have it and hurt yep it can! HA!!
That's very interesting, thanks. I recently started on HRT patches, as I don't think I have any oestrogen production left! The patches have stopped the night sweats and daytime hot flushes, which were awful, particularly if my blood sugar was low. My skin is dry too.
I use my abdomen only for pumping, and my leg for CGM. That leaves one leg free as a spare! Do you find the absorption slower from your leg compared with your abdomen? I did while on MDI.
Thanks for that, I have managed to get my photo in the right place at last! It's good to know that there are lots of other people out there with diabetes to share things with.
How long have you been on your insulin pump? Has it helped with your control? I started on mine almost 17 months ago, and use CGMS with it most of the time. It is very expensive as I have to pay for the CGMS myself, there is no insurance here in the UK and the National Health Service doesn't pay for it. I have managed to improve my diabetic control a lot in this time, and feel so much better for it. More alert and awake, if that makes any sense!
I am a busy person, what with working, and a family to care for so there will probably be days or even weeks when I don't have time to visit the forum.
Thank you for the comment on my page. Welcoming the Members...I enjoy it, yes nice to have somebody say hello.
Tupelo Honey...good song, i love it! Never really listened to Van Morison, now I really like some of his stuff.
My granddaughters are so fun, and I really enjoy them. I get to give them back lol
I lost the link to it, but it's at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, and I believe the exhibit will be open from November 21st to some time in January. That is very cool about the quilting, my mom has done a bit of it here and there over the years and hasn't until recently been able to make time to do it. Quilts are my best friend on high days (:
