    Okay, caught up! Lol

    My Doctor gave me TWO samples of the insulin(thank you Lord!) & forms I need to fill out in hopes I qualify for any financial assistance.
    Wonder if they barter for GS parts? I’d be Golden! Lol
    Thanks again everyone, means a lot.

    Fritz, are you 65 and on Medicare??? If so read below

    CMS is capping out-of-pocket insulin costs for Medicare beneficiaries at $35 per month as of Jan. 1, 2021. ... The change to insulin copays in 2021 for beneficiaries in participating plans will cover “all common forms of insulin,” CMS Administrator Seema Verma said during a press conference.Jul 14, 2020

    This change is saving me a lot of $$$$ as I take two types of insulin. Diet and exercise are the key to controlling your diabetes. When you eat, eat small meals, just eat more often. You can avoid spikes eating less. Eat your evening meal early and make sure you get your glucose level down before bed. I walk a lot in the evening to get mine down. And Michelob Ultra is almost carb free at 2.6

    If I even see that age I will probably be insanely miserable so don’t put me at that age yet! Lol
    No Sir, “only 57” but Surgeons have said I couldn’t do my old work anymore back in 2013 and so far they have been right and things sure haven’t improved.Too bad I couldn’t focus in school so I could do some kind of work other than being an ox.
    Oh, well Gods got the plan,maybe I am working it without even knowing!
    Thank you for pasting the information though,might help one of the other fellas out : )

    YES! The working out & watching what I eat and of course the insulin injections are working GREAT!

    Thanks guy, last few days have been kinda bad (been rationing the shots so I can make them last as long as possible to avoid the $700 a month charge when free samples run out) very fatigued, gut is wrecking me and my old injuries have been let’s just say challenging to the point I can hardly sleep at night.
    Other than those things I am perfect!
    Still in bed as I type but need to go check my levels but dreading the stairs.
    I appreciate you checking up on me, tried to call you a few days ago but I understand sometimes just not wanting to talk to people so no worries brother.
    Both of us need to make it to the Nats to see Denny Manner & I will definitely be pulling for you and your car my friend!
    Stay in touch and when you’d like to talk I am here.
