      Oh, my!
      School was a hard one for us to figure out (non-diabetes related). It is a big learning curve, too!
      Yes, I know about the ups and downs on diabetes. I took a long stretch of just hanging with it, then came back "refreshed", now we've made some changes and things are much better. It's a roller coaster, but it's also a long road trip, isn't it?
      Have a terrific day, take it easy!

      my older son started Kinder this year, then the teachers went on strike and truly it has felt like an uproar with it all...thanks for asking about me. I also haven't felt very positive or helpful about diabetes lately, kwim?!

      Wanted to say hi, hadn't seen you posting lately, hope all's going really well.

      I'm so sorry about all that mess clogging up your thread. Just saw that it turned around, so I'm editing this message to say it's great that you had the patience and it's working out.
      Oh -- just saw you posted below! Sorry I missed that until now.
      I think that is how manufacturing works, I know the kits my husband buys and sells are all basically commissioned out of factories in certain regions (usually of China) that specialize in that type of manufacture.
      And your tin foil hat can never compare to mine. My own sister has told me I've gone "unibomber" without the violence. She didn't mean it as an insult, but I don't think it was a complement, either!
      Have a good night!

      yes, but no recall we just got a bad batch according to the medtronic worker. I wonder though sometimes if they utilize a lot of the same facilities and for certain things, you know what I mean, so if the o-rings were bad on one brand they'd be bad on all. Who really knows (yes I sound like I fear all things and walk around with an aluminum hat on!)...hope things are going well with the untethered. I admire your gumption to take it on right now, things seem crazy here with a sudden improvement in weather and BG numbers plummeting. I'd love to hear updates. I always appreciate your honest posts and ability to be so real with everybody on here.
      Take care,

      Was there a Revel cartridge problem too? We use the Ping and there was a recall. I'm wondering if leaking cartridges are more common than I think?

      Gosh, has it been a year? We're coming up on three, I keep thinking I've calculated something wrong.
      We're 195 with slanty arrow down on the dex, so if I'm smart I'll go lie down because in an hour we'll be looking at a potential low. But now I've had coffee. . . .

      just put a pic to my profile - I figure after a year it's okay to feel associated with CWD web forum, right?! I kept putting it off like maybe not really facing the fact that I belonged.

      I've got 15 more minutes to kill. Wondering if my children will ever forgive me for being such an exhausted narcissistic mother with all this lack so sleep.

      Hey, lady!
      We've got another 300 midnight, followed by the other two girls up and the dog needing to go out and then a suspicious tapping sound (potentially a scratching sound?) in the ducts. . . . so I just threw up my hands and thought I'd try to get some work done. Which I'm not doing.

      Hope you're off to sleep already and totally miss this until morning!

      Oooh, I'm ordering that book LF recommends -- I remember that thread, interesting ideas.

      Thanks! I'm just thanking you here because I need to turn the computer off for awhile and didn't want to miss thanking you but didn't want to bump the thread. Our ratios are still old ones, I think we'll look at that next, since we won't be able to get to the endo this week.

      Someone woke up the thread you started about diabetes and ethnicity, and so I read it and thought, I could send you studies on that. And then I saw that you just wanted to know if there might be advantages, like there is to sickle cell trait.
      Frankly, I think the advantage is probably in carrying the gene, not in getting T1.
      But there's an interesting book in which one chapter looks at the possible reason that people from a certain part of Europe are more likely to develop T1.
      The book is Survival of The Sickest by Sharon Moalem (that's Shah-rone, like the former Israeli Prime Minister) and Jonathan Prince.
