8.2 at least its an improvement even with the snow and not being as active as before.
I know I keep changing my photo but I will leave this one so not to confuse you anymore I am sorry.
I`ve been having good readings for the past 2 days till I went to see the nurse and she told me to take less in the morning so this morning I woke up 5.4 took 4 units of insulin and then jumped up to 16 and then it got higher but now its settled so not gonna take the nurses advice on that one.

8.2 - oops! do you have a plan to bring it down? do you keep a log? I have a big pad of paper, and I write everything down that may affect my bg. right now I'm going to take a walk, #bgnow 141 and I am TOTALLY frustrated with this quilt I'm working on! oh well, I got baby back ribs in a slow oven with a spicy dry rub - I'm gonna let them cook for 3 hours.

ladybug man has been vacuuming about every 20 minutes it seems - he's had a little frustration with his job today - I'm keeping outta the way down here in the rec room (my sewing and computer area)

if your girls are watching American Idol, the one named Crystal is type 1 - she's really really good - she was in the hospital w/ her d acting up somehow, but last night she stole the show!

I am unable to use the pump so it is not an option I have been laid off from my job for 18 months and for reasons that I can not go into can not explore any new medical technology
To be honest with you I am surprised that I am still around Because of a loophole I was not entitled to most funding and manage to dig up supplies and medical aid Yesterday at the doctor there were two pieces of good news 6.0 average and no signs of any kidney damage after almost 50 years The doctor was shocked May you have the same news

Hi Doris,

Thanks for your reply. I certainly can relate- it could be worse. God love your daughter for having 3 kids, and D- I think the D part is easier!! I have let my son know of some Teen D sites and hope we would check them out, so he can vent and also see he really is not alone. I know in his world he feels very alone. Lately it has just gotten the best of both of us. He went on lantus Monday, and will use his pump to cover meals and corrections... So I hope this change will bring back his happiness, or atleast decrease his anger and frustation, as well as get his numbers back down. So thank you again for being here.....

#bgnow 145 and I couldn't be happier! well, I could be happier, but I think that's a darn okie-dokie number! I'm looking at the comment below here, and what can I say...

here's catlover

we got a little snow here, and I hope it doesn't keep my honey's plane from coming in late. I got most of my errands done yesterday. did you see the show on the Today Show about the dangers of staph and e-coli germs in children's bath toys?

hey sweetie, I am doing good. The good news, I lost 4 lbs this week, the bad new I can't seem to get my BG down like it should be. It was 145 (fasting) yesterday, and 135 (fasting )this morning. I guess it's time to go see doctor. ok so enough of complaining....We are waiting on our first grandchild to be born the first week of April! We all are excited about that! Other than being stressed over my BG's I have a blessed life........... How are u?
