Hello All, I am back, reset and hopefully good to go again.  Only took 10 minutes and 3 tries to log-in today.


How has everyone been while I have been away?  I have just returned home from a working holiday in San Diego.  Officially, I was there for an international fund development conference, awesome experience.  4400 delegates from around the world all representing the key charitable sectors. Unofficially, I was there  enjoying the sun and beach.  It was so nice to be warm for a few days but a little heart-breaking to come back to snow and cold.  It feels like spring will never come.


Interesting note, as far as I could tell there was no one else there representing dibetes, an epidemic sweeping the entire globe!

Hi Nancy.  I like how you mentioned Spring is coming.  I live in central Arizona where there is never ice but even here I find the winter months with their times of cold and clouds somewhat unpleasant and I am prone to spend too much time avoiding times away from home.  I am so happy that today is a clear sunny day with only a slight breeze.  The thought of Spring does make me happy.  I cannot imagine what it would be to live in a world where there is a chance of slippery ice.


I like your attitude about bringing things down to size and calling it a little slip up.  I will try to take that attitude more myself.  Each is a new day and a new beginning.  "This is the day that the Lord has made and rejoice in it",  I am having a wonderful day and my readings are under control.  I will have to look not to have a low later.  I just don't feel starving when my numbers are good and I am prone to forget a snack.


Been putting off shopping because of the uncomfortable coolness that we have had for a few days.  Maybe I will try another grocery store or two to see if they have a better selection of fruits.  Just gotta make room in my budget but it is worth a try.


Pizza has been a weakness for me because it is so easy to have it delivered.  I need to work on learning to cook healthy quick meals and maybe even learn to double recipes to freeze for my lazy days.

Please don't give up yet Faith.  I know you have been discouraged but that is a temporary state for you.  You are a leader and an example for others.  You add personality to the forum.  I need you and if you only temporarily help one person you are a success. :-)


I do like the topics that you introduce and it gives me something to ponder and think about.  Somethings I can't comment because it is outside of my experience, but it educates me never less.


When I was young I had anorexia.  It is a strange fact that over the years I became grossly obese.  Still have an eating disorder obviously, just developed into another form.  I do understand the desire of control of areas of our lives and sometimes it goes awry.  I am curious why it is young people that abuse the insulin and not the older people.  Guess with age there is wisdom and knowledge and we aren't under such societal pressure to follow unhealthy trends.


Keep posting please?

The bottom line is that if people don't care enough to post then the forum will not survive. 


Yes, there are problems with the site but we still seem to be getting lots of people viewing posts.  Not many posting new topics or responding to posts.  It tells me that people want easy anwers and only a simulated sense of community.  We are only a real community if people actually form relationship, support each other and participate.  I am sad that we seem to have lost this here. 


I go to one other forum that has a bit more action but it is slow too.  Mostly newly diagnosed coming to ask a question or two and then we don't see them again.  Not sure what the answer is.


I still check here every couple of days and respond to anything that I actually can share about.  I try to bring forward interesting topics that I come accross.  Eventually though I am going to lose interest if it doesn't seem to be sparking any participation.

I'll admit I'm not a big poster and am terrible at greeting new people, but it is embarrising seeing all these threads that have no replies in 2 months, 5 months, 10 months.


It doesn't speak well for the future of the forums.

I logged in and then out again so I could post to someone that had not been answered in 5 days.     A new poster waits  5 days and no one responds,  this place has fallen apart  sorry dlife it was nice knowing you.
