Strange that it is not working (still)!

Don't worry about bothering me... I'm just sorry that I can't help more.

Have a nice walk!!!

Did you remember to highlight the text "New Member Guide" before clicking on the link logo?

Thanks for the comment Marie! Wish I could say that I did better today. I just had a week of indifference towards my diabetes. I brought my 7 day average on my meter up from 140 to 170 (that was helped by many 200-300 readings).

I'm getting a trial MM CGMS sensor on Wednesday! So that will give me some motivation to keep track of things. Hopefully it will get me back on the right track.

About the hyperlink, I think that I know the problem because I had it at first too. When Ning update the layout of the site, they changed this. Now after you click on the link, you must click on the line in the little pop-up window so that the cursor is in there (actually you should click and highlight the "http://" and then press ctrl-v). Before this used to be automatic; now you need to click there to get the cursor. I'm not sure why this was changed.

I hope that I wrote this clearly -- let me know if you can't understand what I'm talking about!! :)

Maie, my husband's depression just worsened after we ate! It looked just like a cold Dec day here and the food (now remember he picked out the spot) wasn't the best we've ever ate....Let me put it like this McDonald's has better! HA!! According to him "what a great birthday even the weather doesn't want to coroprate!" HA!! Sorry it really was kinda funny to watch him have one like that b/c the last 3 have been hard for me! Laughing here!

Hi Marie!
My son has type 1 diabetes. Jack just turned 6 in November. He was diagnosed on June 10, 2007, a month after I graduated Nursing school. Love the quilts in your pictures. I love quilting but I don't have that much room to do it in.

Hi Marie,

Happy Thanksgiving!

We are "stuck" in Trinidad having some work done to the boat to make us more energy independent. We hope to leave here for Grenada soon, but we are currently on "island time" so who knows when we will actually move on.

Thanks for thinking of me,
Fair Winds,

I will ask tomorrow about the spare meter. I ordered the spibelt case last week and it is being sent to my son in Sacramento and he will send it on to me. I have the clip like yours and was using it today. Love your quilt, I looked at your photos and saw your beautiful quilts. I don't get much time to quilt but I love it. I will put up some photos when I can. Am not very good at it but will get help to put them up.

Sorry for taking so long to reply. One of my sons was home for the weekend and took the monitor from my computer so I was out of touch. I am really happy with my Combo and am going back to the nurse tomorrow to discuss how things are going. I only have one meter which uses bluetooth to transmit instructions to the pump, probably should get a spare in case of trouble. Will ask tomorrow. I find it so much easier then MDI. Had to sew pockets onto all my pyjamas. Might do same on some of my trousers too.

Morning Marie, What's up with you and your hubby today? Is he having a "Happy Birthday" or is he in the same place mine is "I'm getting a year older and I miss it when I was 20" I think it's funny to see a man take his B-day so hard! He made so much fun of me when I turned 40 that seeing him turn 46 is just funny! Right now til April we're both the same age then ib April I turn a year older than him! What's it called..Midlife crisses?? HA!! Done and done it!!

Your quilts are nice, too!
I'm studying Psychology.
Don't be afraid, I can't read your thoughts ;-)
My doctors always said, if I wouldn't know how to motivate myself, who else should know then? But it's a very different thing to deal with yourself... I had a lot of problems motivating myself. Now I'm better up a bit, but that's nothing I learned in my courses ;-)

I got lucky when it comes to cooking tomorrow..My oldest is taking her dad and me out to eat! One thing here we're going to a place where he gets a free meal for his birthday! Yep that works!!! HA!! Well like I said I'm trying to be low key, I've not really watched myself for the past year and now I'm reading all the posts and blogs about others here with the same deal going on. I WAS doing good but then life kinda made a visit and well my diabetes kinda took a backseat for a while, really DON'T WANT TO GO THERE! Tell your husband "Happy Birthday" tomorrow from the tudiabetes person Doris and you guys make it a real special one!!
