Yes, I'd love to get together for coffee. It was so kind of you to ask. As you can gather from some of my comments on this site, we are not too thrilled with our medical team. We are still in the stages of experimentation with insulin/carb ratios and that type of thing, and by the way, I have Gary Scheiner's book- very detailed and helpful.I like Clare's suggestion, that a group of us in the area could meet.
P. S. love your photos Thanks for reaching out, CaryJ (Carolyn)
Hi Bernard, Nice to hear from a fellow Bay Stater. I used to work in Hopkinton off of South Street. I now work in Marlboro. I think there should be at least a few of us who could meet for coffee or whatever, I think that would be fun.
Thank you for the encouragement and the hugs. My writing... it was simply a free flow of thought. I would never make it past my 7th grade English teacher with that in hand! I just felt I needed to get it all out. We will see what replies I get. I hope I do get some...
Good to hear from you. Yes, I have had a decent summer after a rather harrowing year. My friend of over 50 years died last October and I have been in a deep funk since then.(Deep funks are not reommended for glucose control), but my brother in Norway convinced me to take a 24-day cruise on the Qeen Mary 2 from New York to New York, visiting the two cities in Norway where my family members live. It was a great experience, and the 10 pounds I gained on the cruise have now been discarded. These days I am, as G&S would have phrased it, "doing very little and doing that very well."
Please tell me how you are faring these days. You had some employmemt issues recently, and the economy has not been very kind. Please give me an update.
Hi, thank you for the warm welcome! I have joined the New England group. I did not know of that meet up group in Woburn, is there a website for it? I did see a flyer at my doctors office about the meeting in Marlboro. Thanks for the info!
We are currently using accu check nano . We cannot move to the accucheck mobile at the moment because the test strip cartridges are not approved by the Drugs board in Ireland and therefore are not available under the long term illness scheme.
Re; Caffine. That would be cool.. You seem to know a lot about the Dexcom and current technology.. I have some experience dealing with Roche, since I own the black sheep of the major pump manufacturers.. ;)
Bernard, I've spent some time at Joslin, and taken a few of their courses,(one on meters, and another on pumps). I'll be getting back in there probably next week, to start the further education on the Dexcom pump then the cgm.
I just got back from vacation, and a mess of other "stuff" has sidelined me for a while, sorry for not getting back to you in a timely manner.
