I can't use my new insurance benefits until September 1. I have an overlap and the old insurance takes precedence. So I can't go back to Novolog until September 1 Sent from my Windows Phone Continue reading

Back when I was injecting, not pumping, I was on Humalog – and a few months on the pump. And then we decided that Humalog was what was making me itch. Even Symlin, made by Lily made me itch, but... Continue reading

Sunday night along with the rest of this weekends excitement my CPAP failed. Threw off an error message so I pulled the plug and rebooted it. I thought it was putting off enough pressure but I woke up feeling like... Continue reading

I will start out by saying that anyone in IT should have looked me up by now and they would know. So if you are a new coworker of mine, “howdy”. I have been worried about two things: keeping insulin... Continue reading

Took her to the gym today, and they have a new manager. I had to go through the whole spiel before I could work out. Yes, I’ve been a member for 6 years. Yes, she’s a service dog. No, you... Continue reading

Insulin Pumps May Outperform Daily Injections for Type 2 Diabetes: Study via news.health.com I'm certainly living proof. I've related this before -- I started on Metforum, had the usual problems with it, plus it was a random generator when it... Continue reading

There is a facility very close to my house, run by people who claim to be positive reinforcement trainers, but aren’t. Yesterday was a good example. The woman I’m speaking of is a Karen Pryor certified trainer, and I have officially complained about her in the past. So I peed the girls before I went in. The fun match was a bit delayed, but neither dog had access to water. So Dulce has a pretty good run. She stops and sniffs a few things but not bad. We took a second pass at the teeter, as she really had it... Continue reading
First one in a long time. No zoomies and no peeing in the ring. A nice ternager and her uncle followed us in thinking I would know where to go. <sigh> I didn't but we all got there. Beagles are so predictable, Macy has to pee first, then Dulce will. Girl wanted to why, and I said, "They are beagles," Macy wasn't her self, but she had her ears packed yesterday morning,we got it right on the third try. Dulce did a really nice job, both runs. We are trying a different one tomorrow. Continue reading
Though Endo excused it. Said it was a miracle it wasn't higher after all the crap I'd been put though by the school district. He's happy about the new job too. Agrees any job that is so tough I need... Continue reading

One of the things that my insomnia counselor and I discovered, was that taking Dulce everywhere was very stressful for me and we decided that coping with her and the public wasn't do me a lot of good. She still... Continue reading

I am always surprised when I do. I also get really made when someone runs a car into a tree, especially a drunk. Yeah, our Magnolia was hit once. We lost a tree last summer and I felt worse than... Continue reading

I got Taggs on my dogs when Maggie started escaping. That started when a drunk driver drove into the house. It went on for several years after. Maggie was almost 15 years old when she got to where she screamed anytime I touched her (for a week) and the last day when my husband touched her. Dulce and Macy have never left the property without either Maggie taking them, or one of the humans. Actually Dulce hasn’t ever left the property. Once she left the back yard when Maggie opened the gate, but didn’t leave. Macy has only made it... Continue reading

When all else fails and our blood sugar is still too high after trying the pills for diabetes, many of us go on insulin, although usually with reluctance. But by that time most of the beta cells of our pancreas... Continue reading
