computerFor some reason, and I am not exactly sure why; the last three days have been an absolute perfect-storm for the techno-gods to not shine their smiling faces upon me.  My oh my–what a mess.  One computer glitch disaster to another.

Traveling as much as I do—-this could potentially become a problem….and this trip….it surely did.

Now this may surprise you; but that got me to thinking. 🙂

How much do we rely on all of the modern conveniences of technology that when it runs amuck, we pay a price for it.  That price is frustration.

I found myself talking to my computer like it was a child who had done wrong.  And as the stern parent I demanded an answer…..yeah that didn’t work too well.  Our lives have become totally reliant on these mechanical-must-owns in almost everything we do.

Even in our kids, shots are replaced by pumps and blood testing is also being done more and more on a reliant basis.   And in as much as I love technology, and I love the computer, I have recently asked myself; What do we do when it goes off track?

Have we become too reliant on modern technology?  What do you think?

What is Your Question?????……the DOC is Here to Help.

The last week has taught me a very valuable lesson.  So many people responded to the questions I asked and many more parents were grateful for the input.

We, as parents, have an incredible resource available to us.  As I read many private and public replies, emails, and private messages I have learned that many parents have questions and do not want to be public with their questions.

I know that there are so many in the DOC (Diabetes Online Community) who want to help because their experiences have been there.  SO here is what I am proposing.  If you have any question that you would like to see addressed, no topic is off limit, email me at

At different times I will post the question for people to reply via my blog.    Now that means you will have to trust me to keep your name distant from the question and confidential; I can assure you that those who know me will let you know that I can keep that to myself.  My only interest is in helping.  

Also know that these answers will help to only guide you, medical questions MUST BE ANSWERED by those who are professional and in the know….this is a guide on what others have done to solve what yo may be facing now. 

WHO has the problem is nowhere near important as helping solve the problem… will have to trust me on this.  So if you have a question, email me and at different times I will get it out to the DOC.  In the subject like just write the words ‘a question’. 

We will try to get to as many as we can but the SOC is a fabulous resource—-it should be used and sometimes anonymity is what is needed, and I will be glad to be the go-between and help get your questions answered without letting any personal information get out.

Let’s help each other.
