I am really struggling with how to reply to members who submitted written questions for the interview on Friday. I read a question and click on reply but I can't figure out where I'm supposed to compose my reply, so I give up. I tried to find a HELP facility, but there doesn't seem to be any. There are some good questions that I wish I had had the opportunity to answer yesterday. Please help!! Tom

On 12/11 I tried to reply to rrrruf about stage 3 kidney problems, but was limited to 200 words because I wasn't a friend of hers. I gave up and tried again today, when she had accepted my friend request. It seems to me that the need to be friends interferes with useful communication when both are members.

Hey, Emily! You have a G4, right? I just got mine yesterday and I'm not sure I put mine in the whole way. I'm getting readings, but it just doesn't look right.

Emily....I still cannot see David (dsg1987 ) in the chat. If for some reason he was accidentally blocked....how could he get UNBLOCKED if I can't see him? I don't know if THAT is what happened....but I would never have intentionally blocked him....as I've even befriended him!!
It's very frustrating....as he's the only one I cannot see on the chat. I can see him just fine on HIS page or mine though.

Please share!

Get Your Test On! Where else can you make a donation without taking money out of your pocket?

The 2012 Big Blue Test has started! Between now and the end of the day on November 14th, do the Big Blue Test every day to help us reach our goal of 20,000 entries.

Let your TuD friends, and family/friends/co-workers know about the Big Blue Test. If they don't have diabetes, they can still take the Big Blue Test every day WITHOUT testing their BG.

Every time YOU do the Big Blue Test the program sponsor (Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK® diabetes products and services) donates $5 to support organizations that help people with diabetes in need.

If you've never taken the Big Blue Test before, it's really easy. All you have to do is:
Test your blood glucose.
Get active for 14-20 minutes (or whatever you can do).
Test again.
Share the results on BigBlueTest.org
Come back every day and tell others!
(If you don't have diabetes, you can still take the Big Blue Test every day. You just don't need to worry about testing your blood glucose.)

Share your results in our Big Blue Test discussionif you wish.

Thanks :)

Hi Emily. The time on the Homepage for Sheri Colbert reads TOMORROW, which in now incorrect, and confusing. This event should be very interesting.

Hi, Emily,
thanks for the quick response. I believe I am using Firefox 14, will check with my son as I am still not able to pull up the chat room. I can get the little box on rt of my page but that's it. Thank you for your time.

By the way....PJ also cannot see David...but she can see everyone else....as well, we see each other lol

Thanks for taking the trouble Emily, and touching base with Ning. I doubt that the problem is where they suggested (I use Firefox), as I'm able to see everyone else in the chat area. The only time I cannot see avatars in the chat is when I come in via a dif. browser....but am able to see everyone since I use Firefox...except David.

Pssst.... pass it on!

I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. If you have, do another!

Thanks for the invitations, but at present I have little need for interviews with Type 1 people and especially sports personalities. I am more interested in type 2 people and especially those that have had type 2 for more than 10 years. What you are doing is valuable for many and keep it up. Please omit my name from these emails. Thank you, Bob Fenton
