it’s making me nuts!!! like it’s 189 now!! i don’t know if i shold correct or not!! i don’t think i can wear it all the time… i’d go nuts!!!
speaking of which….. think i could use it on shabbos? what do you guys do about all your the stuff on shabbos??( i think thats a topic we haven’t discussed yet…..)December 8, 2010 10:57 pm at 10:57 pm in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979991
both the accuracy and numbers itself are confusing me…..
for example: on the reciever it said 91 but i tested regular and it was 146. but now on the reciever it says 72 and it was 87 on the regular meter…..
but what is really confusing me is this: i woke up with gr8 numbers (90-110)and that lasted all morning and then i go to eat lunch at around 1:15 pm with a level of 127. i give insulin accordance to what i was eating (a salad with tuna and ww pita– not alot of carbs) then my BS levels start to go up…. higher and higher till it reached 192 then it went down again to 72. is that normal? like the carbs went into my blood and then the insulin took affect? and since it’s the first time i actually see the trends (as opposed to just the test before and 2 hours later) i’m getting confused? or am i doing something wrong? do you understand my questions?December 8, 2010 5:08 am at 5:08 am in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979988
allsgr8- i know exactly what you mean and sometimes we need to eat someting we want in order not to feel resentful…. (i finally had my dounut lol)
i just got the CGMS today is the first day i wore it… it confuses me…… looking at the graph and how its all over the place gets me sooo nervous!!!! any advice?December 7, 2010 10:28 pm at 10:28 pm in reply to: What's your favorite type of gum? #828822
take 5 fruity… whenever someonegoes to Eretz Yisroel i make them bring me back a TON!!December 7, 2010 5:49 am at 5:49 am in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979985
everyone should be proud of me…. i didnt have the dounut…. (yet…. i still have 3 days right?!?!)
but if i dod have i would eat half… that way its not the full carbs (and calories….) but i still get my dounut…. so you would say that would be like 30-40 carbs right?December 3, 2010 4:27 am at 4:27 am in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979981
i am craving a custard dounut!! how much insulin do you think it needs???
csilver- i don’t know of any other literature either i’m sorry but we are all here to help if you need! a lot of us are young girls too (i was 11 when diagnosed) so we know exactly how your daughter feels and in my opinion no publication can ever be as useful as personal first hand experiences…December 2, 2010 1:04 am at 1:04 am in reply to: WORKING WITH FAMILY #714831
my entire family works in our family business and i said numerous times “there is not enough money in the world that would make me wanna work there” not because of the job but because of the realtionships between my siblings and my father. they can handle it but i like having a father daughter relationship and a sister/brother/sister realtionship and not the boss/worker and coworker relationship. i’m not saying we dont all love eachother because we do and were BH BH a close family but it definatly puts a little starin on us all!!December 1, 2010 12:34 am at 12:34 am in reply to: Teachers and Loshon Hara #714329
its the type of conversation that is in no way that i could see as toeles. firstly bec most of the time it is between a rebbi that never had this boy or a rebbi from a few years ago…
and also it’s just saying how he makes trouble bec of this and this and that he doesnt try etc. and the rebbi doesn’t ask for advice or help he just talks about it. (i’m not talking about a specific person just in general)
and as far as i shouldn’t listen… they talk right in front of my desk (i am the secretary) and not wispering either… of course i dont listen to peoples conversations (i actually take pride in the way i am able to not listen into other’s conversations…)
it really bothers me how a rebbi could take so negatively about a boy no matter how “bad” he may be…. and i am not in a position to say anything because i am a single girl, but it really bothers me!!November 29, 2010 5:00 am at 5:00 am in reply to: Sensitivity at Chanukah Get-Togethers #714291
thank you for this post! i fit into the A section… i always feel so left out when all my siblings sit and talk about making suppers and their kids schools and bedtimes etc and it does hurt… and i know they dont mean to do it but they dont think about it.. to them i’m just the little girl that i was 10 years ago but i’m not i wish i was able to be included in their conversations! i feel the same way when i get together with my friends… all talking about their husbands and supper and lakewood when i am here in brooklyn because i am not married…. i have one friend who sensed my uncomfortableness and changes the subject when she can but most times they dont chop and it gets back to that! i wish people would be more sensitive!!! thanks for bringing this point up!!!November 26, 2010 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm in reply to: Why type of car do you have? #714213
2005 Nissan Altima.

oomis… your stories never cease to crack me up!!! BRILLIANT!!
and that is a very sweet story aries…..
my 6 year old student came over to me yesterday and said “Morah… i need to see a doctor so they can reshape my head…” so i said “why??” he said “i need someone to reshape my head because no one understands me!!!!” i didnt know whether to laugh or pull him into a gr8 big hug because i felt so sad for him!!November 22, 2010 4:14 am at 4:14 am in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979975
happy anniverary allsgr8!!!
forever1- i filled out the forms to get the dexcom seven plus but i havent heard back from them yet but i want to get it really badly!!November 21, 2010 5:20 am at 5:20 am in reply to: Type 1 vs. Type 2 Diabetes #711037
as i understand it (and i have type 1 so i know that more…) is that in type 1 the pancreas does not produce insulin AT ALL and type 2 the pancreas DOES produce insulin but the body does not know hot to process/use it. which is why type 2 can be resolved by losing weight sometimes and why type 1 is always there. type 1 has NOTHING to do with weight. they say it can be caused by a virus but that cannot be provenNovember 20, 2010 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979973

recently i have been having a lot of trouble at work and i am trying to stay calm in situations that really upset me! it’s really difficult!!!November 12, 2010 4:13 am at 4:13 am in reply to: Dressing More Professionally at work(schools) #708484
i work in a school and always dress up but not for the kids or mothers but because i feel better about myself that way. but that doesnt mean i dont wear my hair in a pony somedays or that i dont wear glasses to give mmy eyes a break…. (and on fridays i wear a slinky skirt…) i think the way we dress is based on how we feel….(i’m NOT refering to tznuis AT ALL) why should we go through life trying to impress people…. but i also feel that we should not be a shlump but for ourselves.. we work better when we feel good about the way we look no?November 7, 2010 4:11 am at 4:11 am in reply to: Take it outside!!!!!! #709394
i think thats a good plan because then when you make them aware they shouldnt be saying that inside maybe they’ll get the hint not to say it anywhere!! but it would never work!November 4, 2010 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979967

thanks for the support allsgr8 i was just so disappointed in myself!! im trying so hard now!!
and yes i did tell her (i prepared a whole speech…) but i felt so bad because her father is sick so she’s not herself but i still feel like “i understand you are going through a lot but you are still a doctor and your “diabetics” need you!” but i didnt say that i just said oh i hope he gets better soon etc wtvr i’m just glad the appointment is overNovember 1, 2010 11:12 pm at 11:12 pm in reply to: Carlos & Gabby's Restaurant #705638

allsgr8- this year they combined both reghular and swine flu shots….October 26, 2010 3:30 pm at 3:30 pm in reply to: Things Kids Said/Did #1185194
my sister in law just recently told me this story…
my 6 yr old nephew was talking to his cousin saying “i can’t wait for tomorrow (shabbos…) my mommy makes the best salad… maybe you should watch her… it’s an experience!!!”October 26, 2010 3:48 am at 3:48 am in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979936
i agree allsgr8- i think pediatric docs care more because they need to for the younger kids…
here’s a new question for you all: did any of you get the flu shot? my doctor (and so therefore my mother too…) is very “makpid” on diabetics getting the shot… apparently ppl with a chronic illness need to get it…. so i got it… did anyone else?October 25, 2010 3:46 am at 3:46 am in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979933
thanks simcha! i’m going to the doc next monday and will discuss with her if she thinks it really necessary… for roght now i need to lose weight (nothing to do with Diabetes just that i hate the way i look but that is a completely different story… LOL) so maybe i will try her just for that because it always helps when someone understands diabetes (even if you say she’s not soooo knowledgeable.. though unless you have it u never really could be i guess…)
allsgr8- itried chaya stern before i was diagnosed just for losing weight ( i was very heavy when i was young.. since then i’ve lost over 30 pounds and kept it off…)and for some reason her program didnt work for me and it was a big shlep to get to her but she is a DOLL she’s soooo nice!!
btw i think i’m gonna get the sensor… if i ever get a hold of my doc….. oysh don’t get me started again lolOctober 24, 2010 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979928
simcha- i think reb was just telling us that because i asked about her cuz i need someone and since she knows i’m in brooklyn she was telling me that so i know its not so applicable to be….
does anyone know a good nutritionist in brooklyn?October 24, 2010 12:25 am at 12:25 am in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979921
ive been looking for a good nutrionist.. who do you use?October 22, 2010 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979919
i tried Dr. Ten after Dr. Anhalt left (he was my first doc and i loved him he was great) and i really really didn’t like her! i heard a lot of people didn’t! now i am by Mount Saini and the team there and im generally happy…
Forever1- is theCGMS big? i don’t want people to see it. i’m reluctant to get it because i already wear the omnipod and i don’t wanna wear 2 things and caary 2 things…. but i think i really should get it because it’s supposed to be very helpful… did you every hear of the dexcom seven plus? that’s the one i would get if i did get one cuz it’s the smallest/thinnestOctober 21, 2010 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm in reply to: What's on the menu? #705104

my doc is all those things and i am happy with her except that she doesn’t answer back. i don’t know why. it is upsetting and i plan to tell her how unhappy i am (in a respectful way ofcourse!!)October 21, 2010 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979907
health u r 100% right i should make an appointment but my doc is supposidly top in the city so i have to make an appointment 6 months in advaance (i made the november appointment in march) so i make 2 appointments at a time so i have one in 2 weeks and one in february 2011 so i can’t make an appointment (plus i cant just take off of work as i’m sure you know being in the medical field….) so for now i’ll wait till the 1st when i have an appointment and i will discuss with her the problem that i can’t reach herwhen i go. if she can’t help me i will take ur advice and find a new one =)October 21, 2010 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979905

health- my doc says this is the way i could get in touch with her (because when i used to call her she NEVER EVER got back to me so she said it is better to email) and she usually responds but she still hasn’t and i’m really upset because i am paying her to help me and she’s not..and i have an appointment november 1st to see her!October 20, 2010 3:02 pm at 3:02 pm in reply to: Diabetes Support Group #979900
