Sorry it took me so long to respond to friend request. I had no clue this was here. I thought tudiabetes was like a bulletin board.

Thank you for adding me as a friend, I'm new to tudiabetes, just trying to keep my hopes up, sometimes it's great and under control and other days i just get tired of dealing with it and end up having a bad day in the glucose department. I never thought about how bad diabetes gets when ur pregnant, 3 more months to go and then I can work on improving it or getting rid of it. Hope this monday was a wonderful day for you. It's really cold out here in California today

Thanks Tim for adding me. I've been Type1 for about 43 years. So, I've been through a lot. I am in EXCELLENT control, now, not when I was young. I don't think I'm alone with that.
I'm looking for support. Sometimes it feels like I'm alone in this battle.

Thank you for reaching out and becoming friends. I'm a type 2 Diabetic since about 1989. I go in and out of control but mostly in control. It is getting easier for me more of the time. I need to be involved and I'm hoping to find involvemnt here. I'm looking forward to finding maybe lectures, fundraisers, whatever activies are offered. If anybody can reach out to me and help me find that here, I really would appreciate that.

Thanks for wanting to be my friend. It's always good to be asked.

My weekend? Bust!! Spent Saturday in bed & my Father died. Sunday was a catch-up with some laundry and straightening out my room. Back to the laundry!

Hope you had a really nice one.

Thanks for adding me! My weekend is moving along just fine. How about you? I don't get to be online a whole lot, but when I can, it feels like family. Lots of great people here.

Thanks. My weekends fall on Tues and Wed. In Vegas weekends fall every day of the week. Someone is always happy it is Friday and someone is always upset it is Monday.

Thanks for the good wishes...nice to have you as a friend. Unfortunately, the weekend is not AT ALL what I had hoped for. Already took one of my 10 paid sick days of the year on Friday due to an asthma flare up + laryngitis, lab work, xrays...still can barely speak, and I've nearly coughed up a lung! (sleep...what sleep!!). Hope all is well on Monday...if I'm not there, no one steps in to teach my class...then it's a pain trying to get back on track!
How's YOUR weekend faring?
Take care.....linda.
