hey we are on page 29
shall we all go and dine
will the #’s stay fine
and just stay in line
for some food is what we hate
beacause it comes with added weight
and we have to look good for a date
to meet the right mateMay 10, 2011 2:50 am at 2:50 am #980710May 10, 2011 4:23 am at 4:23 am #980711
welcome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!May 10, 2011 4:35 am at 4:35 am #980712
sweet-idk if i nec. agree with your way of handling it..i think that when your’e going out..and feel that you’ve gained a mutual respect and can see something possibly happening-that its the girls job to tell herself. Marriage has to have open communication..and in life, you can’t always go thru your parents and whatever..i dunno..thats how i view it..May 10, 2011 1:36 pm at 1:36 pm #980713
i think i agree with you reb- i know it wont be easy to tell a boy but its something that i think he would need to hear from me. idk lets all GET UP TO THAT POINT!!! SOOOOOOON!!!May 10, 2011 5:59 pm at 5:59 pm #980714
I agree with reb and coffee- when your dealing with something that could potentialy be a lifelong partnership you should want to be open with eachother and it also feels good to get it off your chest on your own.May 11, 2011 12:27 am at 12:27 am #980715May 11, 2011 1:25 am at 1:25 am #980716
sweet this is an odd question but how old r u? u sound SO mature so i was jst curious! (plus you call us kids….lol)May 11, 2011 1:41 am at 1:41 am #980717
sweet- I dont think the girls fam has any rite to be upset. He did exactly what he was told to do according to da’as torah. If they dont want to go ahead with the shidduch they dont have to but they certainly have no right to talk about it with everyone. Also, once your at a point where your ready to tell it means there is some “sort” of relationship beginning to form (I am speaking for those who date) and if that’s the case the other party will be likely to consider you even though there’s this “issue” becuase they can overlook it when comparing it to your middos,personality etc.
happens to be that I have a relative who went out with a boy with D. After the third date the shadchan called her mother to tell that the boy’s side wants to tell them that he has D..etc. In the end they didnt go ahead with the shidduch but I wonder if the boy would have told her directly what would have happened…obviously this was what was bashert but just a thought….sometimes its good to hear it from the source..
sorry for the long post!May 11, 2011 4:00 am at 4:00 am #980718
i told my wife myself… and I totally agree w/ alls when it comes from the guy or girl herslf it’s taking a further step into the relationship, coming from parents- i would think would make the other side more wary. “a medical issue” yeah, but we look and act 100% normal and a healthy looking person sitting in front of you is proof of that!
When you explain it on a date youreslf, you can give some explanation, what you do, how it affects your daily life. Coming from a parent makes it more secretive and ominous soundingMay 11, 2011 7:32 pm at 7:32 pm #980719am yisrael chaiParticipant
(just saw this, not original…)May 11, 2011 9:24 pm at 9:24 pm #980720
Ha ha ha!! thats a good one!May 11, 2011 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #980721
There has been some interesting points made.. i think the difference is just how you’re brought up.. i hear both sides though know how i’ll most likely end up doing it! ..Anyhow, too many people know for it to be kept a secret.. Didn’t you say that Reb? And you’re still telling the guy yourself?
Lets just keep praying for one another (remember the tehillim ? and ????).. and tryy to hold on..
BTW cofeefan, you asked in an earlier post about the email address – yup! It’s going..!!! You gonna join?! Reb – you too.. Do you prefer a separate blog for this where it’s more private or you find this good..?
And in case any1 is wondering, bh the appoint went okay, my A1C did see improvement although got a way to go! If i could do this anybody can..!
Well…so long for now!May 12, 2011 1:06 am at 1:06 am #980722
ok i just opened a new email account and i will email yours shortly.May 12, 2011 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #980723
hey where is everybody
princess????May 12, 2011 8:22 pm at 8:22 pm #980724
Loll;) I came across this one. (so true))
The optimist sees the
glass as half full…
The pessimist sees the
glass as half empty…
The diabetic just silently
prays there’s enough o.j.
to avert a tremendously
embarrassing situation.May 12, 2011 8:28 pm at 8:28 pm #980725
Hey dx, how do you like the sensor …??May 12, 2011 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #980726
Hey!! Right here!! Sweettooth – pretty good one! i’ve gone and got high again tonight – licking batters and all – maybe it’s just bc of this that i feel so rotten?? I did meet some lows yesterday and a good one today too! i guess you just gotta keep going, forget emotions and just do! It’s like so much easier not to care… in a way. Whatever! Shabbos tomorrow…YAY!! I’M SO EXCITED!! AREN’T YOU?!! Well…in all honesty i’m really not.. i hate shabbosos! (i guess it sounds pretty bad to read if you don’t know what context i’m talking about..!?) Who knows, maybe this week will be better .. Just stay strong and hold on tight, it will get easier!
Cofeefan – did you end up emailing? I take it you didn’t.. How are you managing? Would like to b.i.t as long as you do too! (same with you reb 😉 )May 12, 2011 10:38 pm at 10:38 pm #980727
Coff, yeah I was born mature. N nope I’m pretty much younger than you!
Whatever the weather,hope our basherter’s show up really soon ….May 12, 2011 11:24 pm at 11:24 pm #980728
sweet- i am getting trained for the sensor on the 26th, and i am very excited (whoo hoo more holes in my body. lol) hopefully i will have better control.
i just got a 7.1 on my a1c
i didn’t think that a girl would say no just because i have D. especially since i was pretty much under controlMay 12, 2011 11:55 pm at 11:55 pm #980729
princess- im still debating whether or not i should email… i dont know if im ready to become not anonymous!!!lol
sweet- well u saound very mature (plus you keep calling us kidz……)May 13, 2011 12:03 am at 12:03 am #980730
sweet- its hard to tell what I’d say if I wouldnt have D and if a boy would tell me that he did..I dunno..but I do think that if everything else was good and he had great middos and was everything I wanted Id prob go for it..again, its hard to look at it as an outsider once your in it already but I just hope and pray that I will marry a normal, healthy, wonderful boy be’ezras hashem! SOON!
And btw sweet, there are plenty of D’s that married regualar healthy spouses..I dont think that Dx3 sitch is a rarity. bhMay 13, 2011 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm #980731
It’s true that there are people who won’t mind and go ahead anyhow. But there are enough people who won’t! There is often gonna be the “But” by the other side (too?). Would you look away from that? It would depend on what it is but i suppose than that there are some people who would say diabetes is “too big” to look away from.. Whatever – the right one will say yes bsd! May it be very soon!
Coffee – i really know what you’re saying.. just wanted to add though that you don’t have to exchange any personal details e.g your name.. whatever.. do whatever your comfortable doing!May 13, 2011 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #980732
princess- oh i thought that i would be saying my name etc and i dont know if i want to yet but if theres no personal exchange then im in 😉 we’ll be in touch!May 13, 2011 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm #980733
Great Cofeefan! Looking forward 😉 yeah.. i know exactly the reluctance in exchanging the personal info!
I think i’ve come to the grand conclusion to KEEP AWAY FROM THE KITCHEN! It only does no good… i’m wayy to high again, what’s happened to the good number i was a couple of hours ago?! Maybe i’ll just take on the “flying high” attitude and let it fly right past me.. For shabbos too.. Is that being positive alls??
Do any of you also find shabbos difficult?
This is a pretty random question but how many units do you use up when you prime your pump (those of us still priming 🙂 ) talking of pumps… allsgr8? When do we hear that you’re pumping?!May 13, 2011 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #980734
princess- well ur saying it in a positive way but its not such a positive idea 🙂 lol
they just called me from the doc office that they’re filling out the paperwork for me to see if I can get approved. I never knew it would take this longs…im already losing the excitement 🙁May 13, 2011 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #980735
dont lose excitment!!!! im still sooooo excited for you!!!! just think of it as building the anticipation!!!May 13, 2011 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm #980736mi2Member
to those of u on pumps-from the time you decided to pump how long did it take for the doctor to get you on it?May 13, 2011 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #980737
Sorry coff you seem very bothered…I guess you’re a real KID;) (Ouch! Kiddin…)
Dx: Interesting how everyone gets trained, I never received any training prior to pumping nor for the sensor, I just read the manuscript and arrived at my doctor well prepared..loll, I still got some hopes to become a pump trainer one day! …I insert it in my upper thigh so no punctures or holes to bear. You sure will have better control life is so much easier with the sensor, although most people don’t love it at first, but it does amazing to your health. I’m lost without wearing it.May 13, 2011 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm #980738
Not long mi2…I would say around two weeks.May 15, 2011 5:02 am at 5:02 am #980739
Sweet- I didn’t know either medtronic just called me up and said we will come and that was it. When I trained for the pump I practiced in my stomach and got an anxiety attack lol I almost passed out on him. I have no clue why that should happen.
Princess- yes shabbos is sometimes hard. Friday night I woke up with a 34 and couldn’t tell the difference in taste between grape juice and apple juice b”h I am ok.May 15, 2011 9:13 am at 9:13 am #980740May 15, 2011 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm #980741

my hba1c is 8.3! HELPPPPPPPPP! i try so hard, and i really thought it would be better this time!!! i cant anymore!!!!May 18, 2011 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #980757
reb- Oy! I really feel for you..its so upsetting when you expect it to be a certain number and then its waay higher than that 🙁
Let me ask you, what was your last HgA1c? Was it lower than 8.3? Can you think of anything different that you’ve been doing that could have made such a difference?
Personally, I found that the times when my HgA1c was higher it was becuase my overnight numbers weren;t so good. I think overnight numbers have the biggest impact on overall Hga1c…what do you think?
Just keep strong and know that you can do it!! 🙂 I’m rooting for you reb!!!May 18, 2011 4:44 pm at 4:44 pm #980758
thanks..i’m not sure what my last number was..it was around there..idk what the prob is, but hope to figure it out soon..planning on switching dr’s…
