I talked with the doctor, saw what @shanselman had to say and decided to go with short acting insulin only. Here's why: The Lantus prescription costs about $153.00 I have used long acting insulin for a year, and it sucked. It was Lily 70/30 insulin and it always had an uneven release causing roller coaster highs and lows. It's only until Monday morning. I can wake up every four hours to take another shot for three days, especially since I don't have to report to a job with other humans. I have a diabetes alert dog that won't let me...

As a result of focusing on the husband's health, my own has been deteriorating. Most of it has been eating. I took a few steps to make that better. I have been using my emwave2 device and when I don't... Continue reading

Many of you might remember that one of the things that lead up to my having a complete meltdown both physically and mentally was Express Scripts. No, seriously they were a major contributor. The insurance plan I was on, had... Continue reading

For most of my adult life, other people have controlled my time. That's okay when you have an office to go to, and you are getting paid for a set amount of time and work. It hasn't worked for me... Continue reading

I had tried wrapping my head around her working while I was swimming, and with the opening the new pool in Farmers Branch, I finally did. They have an indoor lap pool and therapy pool. It's wonderful. She sits in... Continue reading

With the rain, I've left her home a few times, but most of the time, I take Dulce out with me. We went to the doctor's office yesterday and he had a great time getting his people in trouble, he... Continue reading

The thing I like about having a "real" job, is that it forces me to focus on what I am doing. Even the Johns Hopkins gig is helping me focus -- teaching Java and their Web Design courses. The problem... Continue reading

I am using my diabetes alert dog again. I stopped because public reactions to her were affecting my sleep. Encounters with people who didn't get it were disturbing me. Besides, I could afford CGMS. Things have changed. Current insurance doesn't... Continue reading

It's funny. When people ask me where I work these days I don't always remember that I do. Partly because it's limited to 28 hours, and I work from home, I don't think it's a job. One of the reasons... Continue reading
