Hello, Melissa, and thank you for the comment and the welcome. I am doing well, still trying to adjust to getting up an extra 30 minutes earlier days that I have to work (4am instead of 4:30am).

And a Hello for you too, MelissaBL. Thanks for the welcome from you and Teena.

I need to learn some about the BIG D, I have just been ignoring it pretty much. There is such a large percentage of us that have T1or T2, especially T2 that don't even know they have it. And it IS a REAL killer. I will kick back and read the posts for a while, a few days, weeks or months... so that when I do speak, it won't look like I am a total fool about it.

I had a problem with breathing so I took 20MGs of Prednisone for a couple years and then 10MGs for another couple of years and that sure was nice to me as far as the weight department is concerned. Added about 150lbs to my weight and now it doesn't want to come off. But I notice that being fat really helps with becoming diabetic.

So, now I am here to learn... hopefully.

Thank you again for the welcome Melissa.

Ken Chevy ... I love Chevy cars and pickups so much that I legally changed my last name to Chevy! How is that for being cool? LOL

Hi Melissa,

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm looking forward to getting to know people better - it's still a bit new and confusing but hope I'll be able to get some answers.

Thanks again!

Hi - my Grandfather has diabetes and he is getting older and I just want to understand if this will begin to take a greater toll on him as he is getting on in years. He just had to have some of his toes cut off (I know not the worst thing in the world at 91) and it really opened my eyes. Just want to know how bad of a sign this may (or hopefully may not) be. Thanks

just a quick "hi" to say thanks for all the helpful comments and thoughtful responses I always see from you to others. We are so lucky to have you here! I was rummaging through my closet yesterday, and found my old burgundy bag the Accu-chek II came in - of course I thought of you. You're going to be a great mom.
