Very well written Ginge. I relly like this article. This is one thing that I keep telling people. Each one of us is different and what works for me might or might  not work for them and vice/versa. We are all different individuals.

Just how do I speak to my caregiver? For years she has told me that "you have the best equipment the world has to offer" when I have an insulin pump and meter. Just how many years do I have to see friends with a cgm and hear this junk from my provider without exploding? I thrive on numbers and calculations so I generally just go into a quiet depression till I leave the office where it is once again safe to think and talk to myself because it just isn't safe to talk to the person giving me a lecture.

Eggs are great, unfortunately there are just so many myths out there about them.
