Two all three of my kids have Type 1 diabetes.

We have no history of Type 1 Diabetes on either side of our families.

Thank you for visiting – I do hope you will check out some of my posts and leave a comment or 7. It’s my favorite mail of the day when Im notified of a comment.

Also be sure to check out the page “Better Blogs” – it’s my blogroll – its my lifeline that tells me I’m not crazy or at least no more crazy than others who are in this club.

    Hi there,
    I just came across your blog and for what I have been reading, I’ll add you to “my favorites”! I’ve been so overwhelmed in dialing with my 5 yr old twin girls’ diabetes that I felt I need more information and education about dealing with it so I don’t go crazy… Anyway, thanks for the blog and tons of information. Loved it!

      Hi Lucy. Im glad you found my blog. hopefully you found something here useful. Be sure to check out my blog roll listed under “better blogs” page. there are a number of really great blogs written by adults with diabetes (type 1, 1.5, LADA, and 2) as well as a number of wonderful blogs written by parents of kis with diabetes. Finding the lasted info about new technology, health discovers, and diabetes care is great – sometimes just finding an uplifting story or humorous story is equally as useful (sometimes more useful). Just know you are never alone and your girls will be awesome. Cheers.

    Sounds like you have your hands full with 3 with D. Our DD dx’d at 8, now 16. I lived in the San Fran area for 3 years when I was single, Berkeley, then San Fran. Never felt like home, people nice but even the New Yorkers didn’t seem like New Yorkers. Moved back to New York but I will say for as long as you are there enjoy the beautiful weather and magnificent scenery. People were friendly just an area with a lot of people there temporarily. Still a nice place to live though. I miss it every year when the cold weather comes in.

      I feel very lucky to live here right now. Can’t imagine living anywhere else anymore. There are every type of people here. At first I thought most were snotty but now everyone seems really great. Maybe it ‘shy’ thing but then again I didn’t want to be here when I first arrived and I found fault with many things.

    Thank you again!
