where people touched by diabetes help each other.
I've had great days and really bad days.I'm tired of the ups and downs. It would be nice to just have great days filled with smiles and energy. Never want to give up but being diabetic is just not fun
Hi there, I know how u feel. Can I ask are the downs due to erratic sugar levels if so I recommend a pump for much tighter control and I've heard endless energy from being in control of sugars
I prey for energy but half my jabs are correctional doses and high sugars make me lethargic and stuck to the seat with lack of energy
It can be better I know it's a nightmare so many things put sugars up so many things bring it down and it's a constant juggle to keep it in the middle I find it impossible and my sugars bounce.
You're not alone and don't have to suffer in silence
Thank you**** I'm going to talk about the pump today. Crossing fingers
****I had a lot of up and down sugars and never had the energy. I've been on the pump for about two months. I'm starting to get my life back. Good luck!

Hi everyone, I'm looking to get a new pump (currently using OmniPod, not happy with performance). Any recommendations or info on t-slim g4 or animas vibe?
Today my daughter got her first A1C check since being diagnosed in December... It was 14.5 on the 19th of dec, and today it was 8!!!! I'm very happy about this!
Ok, I admit it. I'm a diabetic noob. Am I also in denial that I have yet to resign myself to sticking myself regularly for testing? Hell, I hate it when others stick me! Must I now do it myself??!!
I cannot afford my insulin anymore. I have Lantus pens to trade for Novolog or Humalog vials/pens. Any help is appreciated!
How likely is it to have a type 1 kid? I want to have kids but I feel like they are doomed to have type 1 like me. Do you have kids? Do any have T1 too?
Is anyone on an insulin pump and using novolog insulin? I'm currently using apidra insulin in my pump but now my insurance decided not to cover it anymore so now I need to switch FAST. My insurance covers novolog so I was wondering if this insulin is any good? Has anyone had any problems with it?
Are we allowed to ask or offer pump supplies on here?
Anyone have a new Medtronic insulin pump 723 they'd be interested in selling? Insurance won't pay until next year and we really need one before then.
I started Juicing in Feb. 2013 and in Sept. was told I was no longer diabetic. So I asked the Dr. Was he sure and he said Yes. So I was confused and shocked, so I asked him do I need to continue testing and his response was No you don't need to test at all. Months later & I'm confused. Not sure.
in desperate need of lantus pens or vials. I can trade hundreds of syringes. only have two days left no way to get samples or discounts
