Re: [IP] Personal Female Question



I have had diabetes since I was 13, almost 19 years (I am 32).  My sex
drive was okay, but not great.  I didn't care one way or the other but
always enjoyed myself if I "gave in" (another control issue).  Since I have
managed to get into better blood sugar control in the last 4 months, my sex
drive is much higher and I initiate sex much more than I used to.  When my
sugars have gone up during this time, I notice a definite impact.  My
sugars are pretty much between 90 and 140 now, with the inevitable bumps
along the way.  So I am happy and my husband is *very* happy! 8')
