Hello does anyone out there know how to get a one touch ultra link meter. It's a long humdinger of a story that I'll share later. But it's for my 11 year old son who has the paradigm 512. We're kinda desparate. Praying for leads.

Thanks...I think I need a lot of help with pen injection of insulin (seem to bruise, bleed and have a drop of insulin dribble out often despite following the directions, pinch the fat, insert quickly, count to at least 10...etc.)

Thanks Rick. Looking forward to learning more to improve my quality of life.

It is just good to be in a group that people understand each other, before I felt like the immigrating Irish "Irish need not apply" With a group like this I can see a lot of Sunshine around the corner.

Thank you so much. It's only the first day and you all are already nicer than the Facebook support group I joined for a bit. I'm actually hoping to get some advice on how to eat right with quick easy options. It's a struggle for me. My husband is on the road Sunday through Thursday, and I have issues with chronic pain so I can't spend much time cooking or even assembling complicated dishes such as salads requiring chopping things, or anything that has me standing over the stove for more than a minute or two. If you have suggestions great, otherwise I will post on it tomorow when I can be doing this on my iPad instead of the small phone screen.

Thank you for all the info, Rick. I appreciate the suggestions regarding how to find a doctor. I will incorporate those suggestions into my search.

I also appreciate your heads up regarding preconceived ideas. I'm doing my best to inform myself, but also leave room for facts & data to point me in other directions.

Your responsiveness is greatly appreciated!

Thank you for the warm welcome. I've been checking out the site and look forward to seeing more. So far, I have one question: Is there a particular place where I can find physician recommendations?

Again, thank you very much for the warm welcome!
