hi Marie, I sent a note to Lots on fb and Chris was kind enough to answer me.He wanted me to let her friends know on Tud that she has been in the hospital. She is doing better and she misses all of us. She is going to get back to everyone when she is better.
I told Chris she is So missed here on Tud.

I feel the same way, Dearheart. Doc appointment finally set for a couple weeks from now. Haven't been in over a year because nothing we do ever seems to improve my quality of life. Basically, I'd given up. Will try once more. Could only sit thru first act of a Cirque du Soleil performance today. As much as I adore them, it was all too overwhelming---the crowds, the noise, the sitting in a cramped space for too long, the joint pain, etc.....Anyway, your check-in couldn't have come at a better time. Love you......I have a build-up of strips again if you need any.....Blessings...xx000

Hi Marie-It's not the same here without Reed on the site. I did send him several get well cards. Any word on when he will be coming home ?
I am still busy clearing out the house, my daughter was in last weekend and that was hectic. Even thought she is 42 and married 10 years, it is like she is a teenager when she comes here. Her room still had stuff from college, she graduated 20 years ago. I have been having trouble with TMJ,and saw a specialist dentist this week. He said I have a slipped disc in my jaw, probably caused by arthritis. He will give me a steroid injection with novocaine on my next visit. He also said it shouldn't raise my BG b/c it is localized. Last time I had a steroid injection my BG went to 400.
I hope you are enjoying the spring weather after this winter it is nice to wear short sleeves. Hope you and Ed are well. Take care. Cat

Just got your friend request after replying to your comment. Yes, an intro would be great. Almost sent you a friend request first, but i haven't started doing it yet (you are friend #1). -ZZ

Marie, thank you! Now joined. The endo is very low pressure. I have a recommendation fron coworkers and i'll probably get one or more from my internist. I just thought I should ask people here on general principles, so please don't make extra effort just for me if you don't already know one--you are obviously already doing a lot--I'll be asking on the Great Lakes group. --zzyzx

Hi Marie:

Yes, I am very interested in getting my 50-year Joslin medal. My diabetes doc has made no effort to get me the form I need. Where should I start? She mentioned I need an official document stating when I was first diagnosed.

Thanks, Marie, for your kind welcome note.

Yes, I know of VVA 1002 up your way - a darn good and large group with a heck of a lot of great service projects. I'm down here in Essex County.

If you know of anyone in need of any other type of community support group, here's what's available in your neck of the woods:
