Re: [IP] venting
Jennifer, I'm glad you could vent to all of us. I do have a question: you
said that your 10 year old saves you from severe lows. Did you ever have a
continuous glucose monitor? I've been using one and I just can't be without
it. It's hard to afford, but I afford it anyway. Is there any way that you
could possibly get one?
