I am Penny from DF. I will lurk for awhile too. I think I have been Diabetic since I was 13, but was not really diagnosed until I was 19 and pregnant, now I am 63. I take Lantus, twice a day and Novolog between 3 and 5 times a day, along with many other medications. I have survived 2 heart attacks and bladder cancer, along with the Diabetes.
My husband of 44 years and I have a combined family of 7 children, 10 grandchildren and 3 greatgrandchildren. My family is the the most important thing in my life.
