    ...Hi : ). I'm kind of shy, so I don't speak out much, online. I'm very outspoken in person! I do enjoy one-on-one discussions. Have a good day.

About Me

  • About kbaird4939
    I'm single, a widow, with two kids, a boy and a girl. An empty-nester, I work part-time as the manager of historic collections for our local Historic Preservation office. I owned a retail quilting store for 11 years, and am a quilt artist. I also enjoy gardening (weather permitting!), reading, all types of arts, working on my house, volunteer work.

    Your experiences with diabetes
    My journey has not been much different than anyone else. Though, if it wasn't for my sister finally getting diagnosed, I may not be yet either. She insisted I buy a meter and start testing. Started low-carb because of her, and immediately felt better. (I didn't know I felt bad!) My a1c was 6.2 at diagnosis so I count myself fortunate that it didn't go on much longer. My biggest problem is sticking with a food plan. I can be an emotional eater, and sometimes: I want, I want, I WANT. Ice cream, particularly Haagen Daz, is my heroin. As of July, 2014, I am back on the wagon. Negatives are doctors who tell you your BG and a1c is fine, even great! when you know it's not. Insurance companies that won't allow more than 100 strips a month, one meter only. People who don't understand low carb eating is not a fad diet. I could go on...but no : ).
