We have a brand new feature! A status and an emotion has been added to everyone's profile page. Just open up your profile and share with all of us how you are doing or what you are doing today. I love this feature and hope we all get a chance to use it. Have fun!!

Hi! I'm new here so I really don't know what I'm doing. I have had diabetes since 04'. The only thing that I have been able to do right is I lost 50+ pounds since this past Christmas. No matter what I do or eat I can't get my sugar down. I am on pills and three different kinds of insulin. I hate this and I hate myself for not being able to control me. I have tried everything. I've talked to my doctor, my nutritionist, counslers. Every conversation I have with them gets me more confused. Can you give me any advise or can this community help me? I am 44 years old and I'm not ready to die yet.

Hi Frail303 and welcome to the site. The last thing you say here is what will get you through more tough times than anything. Glad to have you here!

The weight loss should help a lot and finding the right mix is hard sometimes. Have you ever thought to go back to square one and talk to the doctor about clearing the slate to eliminate what is not working and find out why? This takes a lot of effort, but sometimes with some experimentation, you can find things that are being just a hindrance and not a help. Keep a very detailed log of what you are trying and record results. Remember that is can take a few weeks for a new thing to get going in our bodies.

Hi Gabby;
I love the new stuff. Having fun.
How are you and yours? And the $64 question, how are your numbers?
Be good ( no, nono snacks).

LOL! I was at a hotel this weekend where an apple was $3! I ate very little, so my numbers are very good! Funny how that happens. LOL

No, this is in your profile tab. When you open up your profile, you will see a box that you can type in a status of what you are doing. Below that there are several smiley faces that share with community how you are feeling today.

Went to Dr. yesterday and found out I am in COPD distress, haven't been feeling well since monday before last. She has me on a Z-pac, 60 mg of Prednisone a day, and my Nubulizer for breathing treatments every 3-4 hours, which I was already using. Hoping the other meds kick in fast and start to feel better soon…
Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Of course sometimes the smarta$$ in me wants to answer the question "How do you feel" in the status box with "With my fingers, of course!" or some such smart remark. I have resisted doing that so far . . . .

GabbyPA 2010-09-18 21:42:43 -0500 Report

LOL...well you know, that is true. I would expect Ray to say something like that. It is jut to put what ever you want. Have fun with it.

Resistance is * ???? fingers are for touching. Not feeling. Yes I can be one of those just like all my bent friends.
Keep bending, its fun.

I like, but hope eventually more emoticons are added. Like Tired, or Unwelll just to give an idea.

You can also leave quick notes for your friends on their profile pages. Plus, you can give gifts like high fives, hugs, or good luck. It's very cool.

Let us know if you have any questions or comments about how it works.

GabbyPA 2010-09-18 21:43:50 -0500 Report

I have not seen the gifts or high fives...where do you do that?

jayabee52 2010-09-18 21:55:44 -0500 Report

go to the person's profile to which you want to give the gift. You'll see it toward top of page.

GabbyPA 2010-09-18 21:57:28 -0500 Report

Yes, I did find that! Thanks....very cool. I am really enjoying all the new things they just issued for us to use. Very nice guys.
