Hi Doris: :)

How goes it? I hear that you's had Bad winds in your area. I hope that you's are okay.

Gerri said that People on the Welcome Committee can use zombie avatars(or other Halloweeny pics) for their profile pic for Hallowe'en season, if they want to. Cool! Danny's idea again.

Are you and the GrandDaughters doing anything for Hallowwe'en?

Uau, I'm glad you discovered this. Any time you passed out outside of the hospital? Somethings seems like magic when we found it, isn´t it? I had problems with wake up in the middle of the night with low blood sugar, as 37mg/dl for example. I need to eat lots of food to pass through the night with normal sugar level. But I think this is an usual issue. However it is really crazy how a detail can make our lives much better. Have a good day! kisses

I don't know much about type 1,the gov need to quit spending billions on stupid junk and help find a cure or at least make it much easier for type 1.

You look like a spunky 37 year old from your photo! And yes, I have heard of Type 1.5 and think I am more like this description.

Hello Doris,glad to meet someone close by.
I'm 56 yrs old now,got diagnosed 4 yrs ago,then found out about reversing type 2,every diabetic is different,it
worked with me changed my diet,lost weight and feel like 35 again.I want to retire soon and be able to travel
and enjoy life.I see so so many people i know personally fill carts with tons of pizza,sweets,soda's.I try to warn them but they are just like me they learn the hard way.After changing my diet my sugar kept getting too low so i stop taking medicine wacth what and how much i eat which is not that easy,then again the less you eat the less you want.
Then again nice meeting you
i don't have much time for the net,hope to meet more people.
God Bless You

I was a gestational diabetic and it never went away. I have been on insulin for 20 years. I don't understand why I am considered Type 2, but that's what my Doc says.

I saw you might get some severe weather today. I had a good time at the guild today. Got a peek at some of the beautiful blocks being made for the raffle quilt. went to lunch w/ my friends and passed out a TuDiabetes card to the waitress as her husband is LADA. We are all going down to Princeton tomorrow to visit another quilting store. while I was gone my "wife" did all the laundry. he deserves a raise.
