I'd love to hear your comments and ideas about content and features here on dLife.com and on dLifeTV, so feel free to write on my Wall - either to just say 'hello' or to offer me your two cents.

      LC thank you so much for your comments to my recent post (which by the way isn't in regards to copperhairpin's blog post. LC just being reminded that we belong to God and HE LOVES us BIG TIME/ALL-THE-TIME is especially encouraging after all our calculations don't result in "Normal NONdiabetes" tests. Keep at it girl, HIS plans for you are still good, not to harm you but give you a hope AND A FUTURE with HIM:) PS: HE is the perfect husband:)

      WOW Kathy, funny Jeremiah 29:11 is what I see every morning. :) It's posted in my bathroom in two places. Funny thing, at my last Diabetes seminar the speaker mentioned the word 'normal' and reminded us that we are normal, we just some time have blood sugars that non diabetics don't get. :)

      No, you're not crazy. You've just bought into the mistaken notion that magazines, TV and other media, including the "News" is anything other than entertainment.
      You've made a mild complaint and a confession of confusion, here's a REAL rant:
      After 15,000+ years, homosapiens is still version 1.0. The diet dejour is version what - 500? 5000? Doctors who didn't know what caused diabetes 40 years ago, promised a cure would be found within 10 years. Doctors who today still don't know are...

      I saw this, too. If you're crazy then I am, too!
      I can tell you that if I ate that sample breakfast, I would be off kilter with my numbers all day, especially if I started out anything higher than normal.
      I'm type 2 and started on insulin and a pump within the last year. I need to lose about 150 lbs but would be thrilled to lose the fist 50.
      I just don't get it. I try and try to lose weight. When I do, I gain it back. I see the endo next week, and I hate the thought of stepping...

      Very impressive, Amazing Race. One of my favorite shows. I'm not sure my blood sugars could handle participating in it.
      It's always great to hear a story like yours. Very inspirational!
