Good morning, Mary!

A friend once told me I have fairy hands...LOL I have to buy children's gloves because even the adult size small has an extra inch of fingers! LOL~ and I wouldn't trade the insulin for any pill either! ...

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But I don't think you have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too!

Hm. I use Relion syringes (my benefits cover them) Sorry, but I actually PREFER them to the pen... I had a pen needle for the Novalog 70/30 my endo started me with. I bruised constantly. Literally every time I injected. I also developed an allergy to the Novalog... so now I take Lantus and Humalog. The regular syringes are harder to see, I did like the clicks~ but regular syringes are easier and quicker for me to inject with.

I understand why it was so hard with the pen, now~ At that time, I didn't know about the problem with my thumb tendon that made it difficult to control the pen at its slower speed. Years later, I ended up needing surgery on my (dominant) hand!...hm. LOL

As for the Vegan lifestyle, I'm happy that it works for you, and it's great if you can do it, but it doesn't work for everyone.

I say this all the time, but it is So true~ we are all different.

I was a vegetarian for about a year, long before I ever knew about my diabetes... and it made me very ill. It turns out I don't produce enough B12, and couldn't absorb regular supplements properly. My insurance at the time wouldn't cover shots without a diagnosis of pernicious anemia (which I don't have, just absorption issues) and the only good source of dietary B12 for me was meat.

I eat plenty of veggies, I still love them, but now I consider myself to have definite carnivore tendencies! LOL

We all have to use trial and error to figure out what works for us... right?

It is nice to have a place where we can discuss options!... and try new things...

you know look at the insulin as power you now have the power to have yourself in control that will never happen with pills and you know there is no cure it won't go away..that is totally wishful thinking..it's like 'pre' diabetes well i don't think that is going to happen it allows people to continue to put off what they really need to do for themselves and causes all sorts of grief that insulin would just fix..i asked for it i was tired of drop outs tired of fighting and pretending i wasn't diabetic well i am and you know it didn't make me stupid and i still eat cake and ice cream at parties and i live a full life i had a child he had all the same problems as all other teenagers i worked i lost and gained weight with the best of them it's ok to be diabetic if you are and yep you gotta do a little more work maybe but it is not all consuming when you realize that there really are no 'special' diets i eat the same as everyone else but i weigh and measure everything it isn't a big deal yes there are things to watch out for well if you cross the road you gotta watch out diabetic or not you can get run over same with cancer same with heart problems so insulin was my chocie and i have never regretted it it has made my skin softer even yep it is doing it's job for sure lol

Thanks for the info. The good news is that more and more of us get to use pen needles instead of syringes these days.

I don't take insulin but got this recall alert from a site I frequent. Thought I would share in case one of you use these. Here is the link.
