Hello family. I'm not really starting a discussion, I just wanted to ask that question. I've been reading a lot of interesting discussions, with some really great advice and helpful information. I've been taking notes of what I think might be useful to my situation (now or later), either by writing it down or saving the page link to a flash drive. I do this so that I can reference things easily (when needed) and to keep me reminded of ideas/options that may come in handy, later on down the line.

I'm among the "lucky" ones who can still have most foods (within reason) that would send others' BG's through the roof. I'm not experiencing neuropathy or other diabetic complications. I'm not on various medications for health issues, other than vitamins, insulin and Met. Is that always going to be the case? Maybe, maybe not. But if not, I want to have some ideas in mind as to what I can do, if a change in the way I manage my diabetic health becomes necessary. Are you doing the same? This is not me bragging, I'm only trying to suggest that it may be a good idea.

We have DC family members, who have been diabetics for years, that are STILL learning how to maintain and/or figuring out how to adjust to the new situations that arise on their journeys. Some have dealt with the change well, some are just now realizing that they need to get a better grip on things and others still who can't seem to cope/adjust for whatever reason. I appreciate each of their stories; whether it's filled with words of caution and encouragement because they empower me to remain vigilant in my fight. Thank you ALL for that.

I guess that's all I wanted to say. I hope this helped someone in someway because that was my intention. Be blessed DC.

I most certainly am "taking notes" Patricia! I want to commend you for doing the same!

Thanks James. It was you that suggested I get a flash drive, a while back. It really is helpful. So given the number of newcomers that have joined the community, I just wanted to pass on that piece of advice to them. I hope they find it as useful as we do.
