Marie-I am glad that Reed decided to come back to TuD. It seems that every 6 months or so he gets overwhelmed by his problems and thinks leaving our fold will solve them. I guess it is his age that affects his
decision making. I hope you resolved your insurance woes. My ins. company can be annoying sometimes too. I hate to have to call them for anything. This year they said that your PCP has to be in their network. The one I currently use isn't. I have been using him for 12 years. I hate to have to change. I may try to use him as a specialist (he is board certified in Internal Medicine too.) He also handles my D for me and writes all my scripts and gives me insulin pen samples. I hope you enjoyed your quilting guild today. Have a great Sunday. Cat
Hello Marie.just a quick question.ive worn glasses now for about six years.but recently I've noticed my vision is slightly hazy.have booked in for an eye test ,I know diabetis can effect ones eyes,just wondered if you have any advice.
Hi Marie - just read your comment on Reed's page and hope everything turns out okay. Continued new stress is the absolute pits. I will keep you and Ed in my thoughts. It is gradually warming up here. I had my quarterly kidney labs yesterday early in the morning and they didn't call all day with the results. Then I had a shrink appt at 4:30 and he said he wasn't supposed to tell me, but they were okay. What a vague irony, to get my nephrology results from psychiatry. But it saved me a big lot of worry. If you'd like to talk via p.m., I'm here.
Hello.yes am keeping a log of what I eat,and how many carbs .and insulin taken,but as it's early days for me am only just starting to notice what is making me high and low.am just starting to adjust my insulin to what I'm eating.have got appointment with diabetic nurse next month.
Hello Marie B.as only just diagnosed I'm getting confused with what carbs are good what are bad. Levels ok before I eat.then I have my insulin and dinner and my levels are going right down doctors not sure if I'm type 1 or 2.could I be taking to much insulin .or is there not enough carbs in what I'm eating.doctors think I could still be producing some insulin which could be effecting my levels,getting confused.
Good Morning,Marie. I finally had a good night. I went to bed at 11 and woke up at 8. Reading the morning paper I fell asleep. My the temperature that you,Pauly and Kathy have are unbelievable. It is 65 gere and RAINING. They say tonight 26 here. Sp Tom and Russ covered the plabts and bushes. I bought a small loaf of cranberry and walnut artisan bread $4.49. Have you orders? You need to think of something for Valentines Day. They all readt have them out in the stores.My BH 108;. How is Ed doing? Any sales? I hope you are doing OK. Time to chabhe featured members whoever is doing it. I accept friends but as soon as they find me age I never hear again. Their loss. Take good care. A BIG HUG,Reed
Seems ok at the moment.doctors treating mr for type 1.but might be type 2.its to early to tell.one thing I'm struggling with at the moment is trying to work out what good carbs are.what are bad ones.what are slow releasing ones.all so much to learn.
Hey sis, you getting any bad weather? I am boing to have to bone up o my geography, but looks as if the entire NE coast is getting something. Schools are officially closed in Minn on Monday, and now a grocery store chain announced it will close at 10 pm tomorrow. We will have coldest weather in 20 years, or so they say. I am not used to staying inside and today was a real challenge. I baked these mini loaves of blackberry quick bread because the berries were $1 a box
The recipe used apple sauce instead of sugar, but is still very dense in calories and carbs. It said to bake until a toothpick comes out clean. Well, I had no toothpicks so used a chopstick.
I am going to cut and weigh the slices and freeze them so I'm not tempted to devour the entire batch.
Good Morning,Marie. Know what I did? I took the sleeoing pill an hour before bed and it worked. I went right to sleep and woke up at 6:30.The rain has stopped and it is 45. I looked at Boston 2 and 24 inches of sbow. Tom ran the Marathon last week and did not feel like running this morning. I gave him his Lumberjack breakfast just the same. Theull undress the tree. I will do laundry and then grocery shopping. It was cold yesterday so Chico stayed in with us all day. I hope no more snow for you. Give my best to Ed. BG108. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Hello Marie. Another bad night. I go to bed the same time take my sleeping pills but 2 and 3 I am stull awake. I am not worried about the elbow cancer as doing will be done 2.19. I do think of my friends who need better jobs. I have the foot doctor at 2 to trim nails. I cannot bend over to do it. Russ has started taking the decorations down. Tomorrow he and Tom will untrim the tree. It is sunny now.It was 36 this morning. You baking you started baking again. Did Ed sell any cars? Boy they sure are adverting here. Give him my best. HUGS,Reed
