    They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

    It seems to me that T1 is doing the same thing over and over again and getting totally different results.

    Thoughts?

    I suppose then, with T1D, insanity is doing the same thing, and expecting the same result.

    I was recently offered a "vCoffee" - I guess you could have that with your cake but no need to bolus.

    I thought this was going to be about the workout program "Insanity". I suppose T1 diabetes management has a lot in common, as it is so difficult.

    I assumed it was a virtual coffee break chat; we both get a cup of coffee and Skype whilst drinking it.
    At least, I think so but I declined the offer - I don't like coffee.
    And vTea sounds so wrong.
