I’m planning on wearing a kilt next Purim.
I, for one, have no issues.
Oh, yes, you do.
I do not!
Yes, you do.
Now cut that out. I don’t have any issues.
Wanna make a bet?
No! You have issues!
Honestly, find one of the Lice Ladies in the community. Used to be one on Ditmas around East 3rd or 4th, I think. They charge a fee, but will usually not charge for a follow up…and they get the nits and the bugs out with little worry.
It is not only WRONG morally and ethically, but it is FRAUD committed by both the consumer and the store owner. Both should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
And we wonder why the United States is in the financial shape it’s in.
Cofeefan, are you on the pump? If so, which one and how do you like it?
DX3, still considered Type 2, although I’ve been hearing that there will be guidelines for Type 3 (adult onset, insulin dependent) coming down the pipeline soon.
.20 units per HOUR as a basal! That’d be 12 units basal for the day. My basal on Lantus is 70/day.
Princess, I’m relatively new. Never in the hospital for ketones – and I didn’t purposely put myself into a state of ketoacidosis in order to lose weight. That’s actually what some of the high protein, low/no carb diets do!
And, thanks for the kudos!
A “traditional” Conservative minyan is only men. An “egalitarian” Conservative minyan includes both men and women who have reached Bar/Bat Mitzvah age.
The ben/bas shouldn’t be capitalized.
Which SHOULD be in caps? Proper names, etc, as follows:
“In memory of Yosef Reuven ben Chaim Zvi, Joseph Burger – beloved father.”
I’ve been a type 2 diabetic since 1996, right after I turned 30. For the first seven years, I was generally controlled by diet and exercise, then later with oral meds.
My father-in-law, z”l, passed away in early 2003. I was very close to him. With taking care of my wife (his daughter) and my children who were 13 and 11 at the time, my own grief and taking over businesses he ran, I didn’t take care of myself. I felt lousy, was losing weight like crazy and, according to my wife, was in a generally foul mood all of the time. I’d drink a 1 liter bottle of seltzer every few hours, was always tired and was going to the bathroom more than normal.
It all came to a head over Pesach that year, when we were out of town observing the Chag with my sister-in-law and her family. I promised my wife I’d go to the doctor when we got back and that visit probably saved my life.
There were mentions of ketones earlier in this thread. Because my body was not using glucose properly, my cells were essentially starving and I became ketoacidotic. That is, my body was breaking down fat and muscle in order to get enough energy to survive. My A1c at that time was 13.8! I went on long acting insulin at that time and have since gone on insulin at mealtimes as well. I am now wearing a continuous glucose monitor so I can see my trends. My last A1c was in the low 7’s, I’m exercising and watching what I eat. The best part is that I feel well.August 2, 2011 12:59 pm at 12:59 pm in reply to: Funny Shidduch Questions Asked About a Boy/Girl/Family #914095
Thanks for the welcomes, folks. I’ve posted a few times before, not many.August 1, 2011 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm in reply to: Funny Shidduch Questions Asked About a Boy/Girl/Family #914091
I’m of the Conservative Jewish pursuation, so I didn’t go through a shidduch. I met my wife in college and, when we started to “go steady,” I made the announcement to my parents (I was all of 19). Got the standard questions from my mother:
Q: What’s her name?
A: Her name is….
Q: Where’d you meet her?
A: At school. We have a class together.
Q: Is she Jewish? (I had, shall we say, a “history”.)
A: YES!!!! (Thought I had the situation nailed at that point.?
Q: How old is she?
Reply: She’s too old….
Well, 25 years (23 of them married) and two children later, I couldn’t imagine being with anyone else.
The good ones DON’T get in the way. And Goq, 23 years. Looked at the video last year. Looked at the album last month.
New here. Republican since I started voting; I do not understand how any Jew could have voted for this past ticket.
My choice for 2012 – Col. Allen West/Marco Rubio.
