Like "Hi Sarg, I appreciate the feedback, yes the numbers could be a downer, if it had not been for the forums and being able to read about others experiences I would have definately been in the dumps. I don't know how folks manage when they are completely isolated and have to rely 100% on their GP. If the first month is the hardest I feel golden, I have not felt this good for a long time, I'm getting more done, am excited about summer, the depression is gone, yesterday I had a reading of 143 in the afternoon. I tried the sugar free peanut butter cups don't think I'm going to buy another bag. Lets see, my reward treat would have been a half a pound of Jelly Belly Beans a month ago, I'll probably have to settle for less now :^)"
